Fall is here! It is colder, drier, with the occasional rain. With it came a melancholy mood that I just couldn’t shake off. The boyfriend has been so unhappy lately with his work. He is employed with great benefits, but there is no real work to be done. He sits idly at work, bored out of his wits. As for me, I saw the futility of continuing my studies when I’m to become a housewife anyway. (When we actually get married. Though he hasn’t asked.) I know I should do […]
Life has gotten in the way lately. Finding time to write was the least of my concerns since fixing my schedule for the fall semester was of utmost priority. I have since dropped 2 classes because both were in Korean and none of the professors wanted to accommodate me. Such is the life of an international student in Korea. They tell you that the classes would be in English… but they are not.
I finally got around to building my own PC after more than a decade of relying on laptops. I think I went through 5-6 laptops during those dark times in history. Some of them fought hard and died, while some just cruised through life, eventually getting too slow to be of any use. When my first laptop exploded, I burst into tears. It was the most important thing in my life. It was so reliable. Granted I had to plug it in every time due to its short battery life […]
This weekend my boyfriend and I flew to Osaka to attend Day 1 of Summer Sonic. The only reason why I dragged his ass all the way there is because of Radiohead. I have been a massive Radiohead fan since high school, and as this concert has proved, I know every damn word in all their stupidly-good songs. They rarely tour Asia, and if they do, it’s always in Japan and are always sold out. I have planned this trip around 4 months ago… “Rain or Shine,” I said. As […]
Dear Windows Anniversary Update, Congratulations! You have successfully resurrected the old wake-from-sleep issue on my Surface Pro 4. This problem has already been fixed by a previous update. In fact, my Surface has been working flawlessly for several months now! Until you came along and decided to wreak havoc on an expensive piece of equipment. I am now unable to reliably TURN ON the device when I press the ON button. Mind you, we aren’t talking about a new, unique, exciting feature here. It’s a common functionality that anyone in […]
Starbucks launched this special Independence Day card for South Korea for the year 2016. I woke up with a start. Am I hearing children running upstairs? But wait, it’s a Monday! They should be at school. I then proceeded to change and head out for some sushi. As I was walking down the streets of Seoul, I realized that there’s barely a handful of humans outside on a lunch hour, and the said handful aren’t even dressed for work. I looked to the left. The post office was closed too! […]
I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of eating sushi. Even in Europe I was craving for raw fish. :/ Good news for my stomach though, I will be at Osaka this weekend for the Summer Sonic 2016! Japanese food + Radiohead = HEAVEN.
