Musical Friday – Fairytale

Rosendale – Fairytale

I cannot remember where I heard this. Im going to assume Hongdae. In any case just loved how smooth it was! 

Anyway currently prepping for an open class. Didnt know my workplace did things like this. I might freak out tomorrow cause my weekend is packed. Honestly so much to do to get ready for the next semester. Too much. Also have to meet teo new teachers. Please hope they are great. I need my team to level out a bit. So, really hoping that they do. Fingers crossed. 

Last week on Instagram…

Last week…was interesting. Quite busy. Quite…interesting. 

Gosh…I cant keep up. Work has been interesting. A few issues have already come up to make me wonder if it is worth it. The extra effort I put in, when it is not like it is recognized or compensated. Especially when I see others half ass it. But, even if I wanted to, I cant. Well, half ass it I mean. So, instead I end up getting…frustrated. Burnt. 

So we will see. The new thing the boss wants to is…bad. The others dont see to grasp how bad it actually is. That makes it frustrating. 

“If it’s convenient for you guys, Illshow my support and back you up. ”

Almost lost it when I heard this. Without realizing what the individual was saying, this was the response I got. This is not the type of support we need. We dont need “support”. What we need is to know what right wr have, and ensure we get it. But, thats the fun I get to deal with. At least others fought for it. I dont have those type of individuals very soon. Clock in, clock out. 

Sigh. 

Last week on Instagram…


So Im not doing too well. 

It appears I having horrible luck finding decent coworkers. Its getting difficult as they think they know the ropes…and ask each other rather than using the proper resources (meaning mean as I am the team leader). Makes me think the new termI learned   about us foreigners in Korea, to be true about them. That is worrisome. 

In about a months time, I will add two more to the team, as my friend and another rather chill coworker will be leaving. Its hard as both have had a long term experience in Korea. So, they are part of the wave that had certain values that were closer to my own. My friend tolerates the issues better than I do, mostly because she is leaving. The talks we have are funny. To think we have only known each other for two months is amusing at times. It feels much longer with everything we have discussed. Time is funny that way. 

Honestly, knowing one of the bigger problems left my old work places, makes me wish a bit that I knew they had been hiring around the time I was looking, sucked it up, and asked for a job there. 

I know its mostly misery that makes me say this, cant be what I truly feel…right?

Musical Friday – In the Light


Charlie Peacock – In the Light

I knew this song through DC Talk. Since I didn’t pay attention to titles, didn’t know it was their cover of Charlie Peacock’s song. Only found out while researching for this, and…liked the difference it presented from the upbeat one that DC talk covered.

This is why we have the original there.

Jeong Cha-Shik – The Libertine

I was watching Chief Kim/ 김과장  when they were playing it at the bar in the background. Loved the way the words were punctuated.
