Musical Friday w Muse

Muse – Dead Inside

So…
No, I don’t feel dead inside, but this really REALLY grew on me fast.
The video is a little weird though…the fingers creeped me out lol

Anyway,
Still no phone…
Still no internet…
Still freaking out…
Still over prepping…
Still putting in overtime…

Still not regretting my decision…

So I guess that’s a good thing?

Hope you all have a great weekend :)

Musical Friday listening to Kishi Bashi


Kishi Bashi NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

I came across this by clicking on the links presented through last weeks song.

The use of the violin, and then the electronics…gave it an updated feel. I liked the mixup. I mean…then he started beatboxing! xD

Musical Friday “‘Cause I Been Caught In Between”


Joseph Arthur – In the Sun

I rediscovered this song through Scrubs. I actually used to listen to it non-stop when I first heard it on the show all those years ago. His voice, though scratchy, gives it that raw feeling. Soothing…comforting.

“‘Cause I Been Caught In Between”

So, I did something I probably shouldn’t have. Earlier this week…I did something so that it would help/benefit another party. That was at a sacrifice of my own…It was a decent payoff, but because of my actions, I had to deal with a lot of follow up stress.

I am a little pooped from that…but I made it through another week. Going to do some prep for the upcoming week, and head over to Costco with a Coworker.

Anyway…
here is to surviving almost a month in Korea :P
I do miss a lot of things…
– seeing my dear friends
– chatting with blogger friends in EST
– my dog Chaney
– affordable fruit
– a vacuum cleaner
– a microwave
– rice cooker
– my own bank account

…but it is still a learning experience, and I am thankful for that.
I hope to get my bank account next week *fingers crossed!* so hopefully I can rectify the acct and a vacuum cleaner asap~ haha

Musical Friday The Offspring

The Offspring were another group I liked listening to a lot of back in the day.

“Fragile lives, Shattered dreams…”

That sentence really means a lot, not just in the context of the song. I have mentioned a long time ago that a person I know, whom I had called a friend, ended his life shortly after his graduation. In another case, a person who should have been considered a mentor, of someone I knew, was so harsh with her words it nearly destroyed the dreams of that person.

These two were the main examples as to why, as a support for children and youth in education, I never ever wanted to be a part of. Our lives can be quite fragile when our lives hit crossroads, but it is important to support them rather than destroy their dreams. We all have some sort of potential, why destroy the hopes in them finding if just because we can’t see it for ourselves at that immediate moment?

Anyway, just something I have been thinking about again lately. On another note, this MV was amusing to me because of the way that it reminded me of the SIMS in a weird way…and that was another game I liked playing a lot of back then (…and I might have a version of it on my phone now to pass time sometimes lol).

Musical Friday w Rose Motel

장미여관/Rose Motel – 내 스타일 아냐/Not My Type
I got to know about Rose Motel because of the Korean Show 나 혼자 산다/I Live Alone.

You see, Yuk Jungwan is one of the members of Rose Motel, and he is also part of the show. Mom actually got him mixed up with Kim Jong Min, so I showed her the video. Apparently Rose Motel has another…meaning. But…aide from that, I found the MV pretty funny.

Not my type dude…not my type.

In any case, I’m still alive. I promise you that I am :) Things have been a wee bit hectic since I am not fully aware of what I am to do with one section of my kids for the week. Things should look better after your Thursday, since I should have talked with the head teacher of the section. Otherwise, I am sleeping…okay…on a couch, eating relatively okay…considering I’m running out of hard cash to spend and a lot of the food I want to eat is cash only. But that should solve itself within a week, so I should be okay for that as well.

I haven’t done much frivolous shopping aside from groceries, cleaning supplies, and water. Again, somewhat related to the hard cash thing, but also because I wanted to decrease spending there. I brought a bunch of things so I could somewhat try and avoid frivolous buying. But…it has only been a week. Let’s see how long I can withhold from buying lol

Anyway have a great weekend folks!
