Automating My Life

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

Over the last 5 or 6 years I’ve been reading Ramit Sethi’s blog I Will Teach You to Be Rich, and from here I’ve gained a lot of useful information. I bought his book of the same title in June and am halfway through it. I am excited now to finally have a job and […]

A slow first month but a busy 2nd week

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

My first month began with a week filled with review, followed by 2 days of testing in which no material was taught. The material that I didn’t not teach last week will have to be crammed into 2 days this week instead of 3 (MWF normally) because Friday we are having an all day Halloween […]

A flood of posts

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

I’ve been using a desktop blog editor which apparently didn’t successfully submit my blog entries, and never told me that it did so. That’s why there are so many tonight.

An extension of college

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

I was told by one of my coworkers while at the bar last night that there is a huge community of English teachers in Seoul, and that it mostly revolves around the bar scene. She said that teaching English in Seoul is, for most people, an extension of college. That’s not really quite what I’m […]

I got over this quickly and ignore most of them and tell them to ask one at a time. The last teacher instituted a dollar […]

Living in South Korea

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

So I’ve been in Seoul for a full 2 weeks now. It has been very fascinating so far! Going to the grocery store was a neat experience. There were so many people standing around every aisle giving out free samples and yelling loudly to get your attention. I couldn’t hep but smile at it all. […]

Seoul

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

I haven’t been here long enough to really give a good opinion yet, and I was only outside in the city one day before I got too sick to enjoy it. So far I think the subway is awesome, and I love having my own place again. I love even more that I can walk […]

Working at Concordia language villages

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

Working at the Concordia language village was an amazing experience for me. I am still shocked by this because of the short time in which I worked there, just 2 weekends a month for four short months. These weekends changed me tremendously. A brief explanation: these villages are language immersion camps for middle school and […]
