“Yes? I’d Like to File a Complaint, Please…”

Here it is my first blog post since moving to Korea 2 months ago to teach English. First thing’s first, teachers should be paid $10,000,000 a month AND they should get 6 months vacation a year AND they should get free gift cards to Jewel-Osco and Aldi during the holidays. I decided to start a blog not because I’m having a unique experience that no one else in the world has ever had (although…) BUT because I feel like when I was researching moving to Korea and starting a new job here, there weren’t enough “bad” yelp reviews about it! Not that I wanted there to be problems BUT I wish more people were honest about what it’s really like to move to a new country and start a new life and give up cheese! Obviously, everyone’s experiences out here are different, but after coming here, I think tons of people cover up what life is like here. Now while I don’t live in the negative or anything like that (although…) I usually get bad vibes about people, places, things right off the bat,¬†instead of figuring it out later- a trait that is quite a blessing, if you ask me! But still, this means I tend to get to the “bottom” of things right away and find myself looking around, thinking, “Um, does no one else see what’s happening here?!” So anyways, these are all my thoughts and experiences. Key word there is “MY”. Seeing as how we are all individual human beings, with different families, upbringings, cultures, and opinions on whether or not Reality TV is trash (it’s not), it is QUITE¬†possible that you are also a teacher here and reading this thinking, “Um, that’s definitely not what it’s like here and this girl is crayyy…” and it’s quite possible that we are having two different experiences, even though we’re in the same place…Get over it, move on, and start your own blog called, “That Beautiful Lady is Crazy and THIS Is What It’s Really Like!” Thanks for reading this far and my next post will actually talk about life in Korea…
