One thing inevitably leads to the other.
why is every post like this? not even joking, just look through the strictly platonic ads and you’ll see that almost all of them are about sex in some way
I used my phone’s built-in NFC for the subway today because DH lost his card so I gave him mine. I forgot that sometimes it doesn’t work if, after I enter the subway, I restart my phone, take out the battery, reset the NFC, etc.
Well my data wasn’t working so I restarted my phone without even thinking. And now I’m on the train hoping I can exit the subway station without having to ask someone to let me out OMGEdit: crisis averted, everything is fine :) guess I was lucky tonight
Waiting in Starbucks for DH to get off work. Brought some of the soup I made for him to try, a can of his current favorite beverage, and a spontaneous gift I just randomly came across and decided to buy for him.
I’m a really nervous gift giver/deed doer so I hope this gesture goes over well. :)
It turned out pretty good. :) And next time I feel like peeling a handful of potatoes, I’ll know how to make it even better.
I feel like my mom told me to do that too, but it slipped my mind to look for it while I was out buying groceries. After a year in Korea I still don’t know my way around my neighborhood markets xD
I boil diced potatoes on high together with minced garlic and green onions until potatoes are cooked (it takes maybe 20 minutes or more). Drain most but not all of the water, add milk to desired thickness and mash potatoes leaving some chunks. Add salt and pepper and heat a few more minutes, then done. It’s not even close to the best way to make potato soup but my resources are limited here and I’m way too lazy to do anything more. You seem like you know what you’re doing so if there’s anything you think I could add for flavor let me know :)
Feeling impulsive and kind of shitty today, plus I’ve been craving potato soup for months..
But as is usually the case when I feel this way, freaking homeplus and emart and lotte mart and costco are all closed today.
So I went to the local stores like I normally do because I only ever try to go to homeplus/emart on freaking Sundays SIGH
Now my apartment smells kind of great but I don’t have extremely high expectations.. I really just hope this turns out to be half as good as my mom’s potato soup ;_;
Only in my family does a girl have a baby that comes out a surprising color, gets forced to admit to having had an affair, then promptly posts a facebook status saying “I won’t apologize for who I am”
Arkansas, folks. My poor brother. Sometimes it’s easier for me to be observing everything safely from across the world.
Damn, guys. This concept is not difficult. Don’t apologize for who you are, but if you did something shitty, how about apologizing for that?
DH and I were asleep but he had to wake up and leave at like 3 to get to his grandma’s house. She’s sick and doesn’t sleep well, and the nurses who come to care for her are only there during the day.. AND she refuses to move in with DH’s parents even though they keep asking her to, so it’s basically between DH and his sister to be there at night cleaning and cooking for her. He asked his sister to cover for him so he could be with me for longer tonight =] So I’m awake but whatever, he just said the sweetest and most reassuring thing ever and I feel so good right now <3
Also kitty was just snuggled into my neck and she was just sleeping there but then she stretched a little and it caused her to roll off the pillow and it was SO cute <33
And it’s snowing?
Not what I expected.
Dude the weather here needs to calm its shit
Today is the most relaxing day I’ve had in weeks. I went to bed early last night, woke up comfortably early this morning, folded my laundry, mopped my floor, and got back in bed until my director called me.
He planned a group lunch for all of us after the new girls all did their health checks together. I really like these - I’ve been working with some really cool people and it’s really cool how we can hang out regularly like this.
The new teachers are pretty cool. It’s funny to remember what it was like my first month or so of teaching and getting around Seoul without freaking out. I remember my first couple of times trying the buses, and having to eventually give up and take a cab somewhere because I ended up somewhere feeling totally lost and too exhausted to walk twenty minutes to the nearest subway station.
Anyway I came back home from our lunch, got back in bed intending to waste time on the internet, and decided closing my eyes felt way too good.. Now I’m having a cup of coffee before going up to meet DH at his restaurant. His boss is paying for our dinner. :)
Waiting for the inevitable supernatural gif…
DID SOMEBODY SAY PIE?
WELL DONE PUSHING DAISIES FANDOM
The KB online banking website can go fuck itself. I’m going to the ATM instead. Sigh.
I’ve been on this real “I love cleaning my apartment” kick that I hope sticks around for more than a couple weeks. For about a week and a half now, my apartment has looked better than it did when I moved in. I’ve even gotten past de-cluttering and down to real cleaning and disinfecting.
I think it was the laundry that was weighing me down. Having a washing machine in my apartment seems to have empowered me to get stuff done; even tediously hanging everything to dry feels like so much less work than carrying everything downstairs to the coin laundry place. I guess having the clothes continuously piling up gave me this feeling of cleaning being pointless. “I’m never going to get out from underneath this mountain of clothes,” etc.
I even bought more hangers and organized one of my wardrobes. The other one can wait, I decided. It’s mostly just a pile of sweaters anyway. I’ve done a lot already without forcing myself (I find I am actually really enjoying it), so the time will come for that second wardrobe. Hey, when my apartment’s clean, I realize how much space I actually have.. I think I got lucky for having a Seoul one-room. =]
