So happy to see a black mannequin at the Lotte Dept. Store Outlet at Seoul Station….  I think she might be only the second one I’ve ever seen in Korea….and look…another one behind her.

Urg…..it’s like swine flu all over again. My boss at the time told me I wasn’t allowed to go to Itaewon because there were too many foreigners there… When I tried to explain that not only foreigners could spread it, my boss just didn’t buy it. I ended up getting swine flu from my Korean students because my boss refused to send the sick ones home. The after I can back from my sick leave he told me I got sick because I have too many foreigner friends.

Read the article tho..

Do you think that the owner didn’t know?

reallypanda asked: Hi ~ do you know what the charity was called that your friend helped with? I'm returning to Korea soon & interested in helping out with something like that. Thanks !

Actually that friend (who I’m pretty sure slipped something into one of my drinks once and then tried to force his way into my home….not sure why I referred to him as a friend… But date rapist seemed to take away from the point I was trying to make) isn’t my friend anymore for obvious reasons so I can’t ask him the name ㅠㅠ I’ll ask around and see what I can find out tho.

Anonymous asked: I know you covered mixed children in Korea, but do they treat them any different when they find out the mom is Black and the dad is Korean?

I honestly wouldn’t know… I’ve only ever seen maybe 1 other ambw couple in korea and they didn’t have kids (also I just saw them on the subway and we didn’t talk)…. I’m not sure how many ambw couples actually exist in Korea….. Not many tho

soontobeyoon asked: hey! how long did it take for your visa to be processed from beginning to end?

Like 1.5 months from the time we submitted the first paperwork. (It took about 3 weeks to get all the stuff in order to apply…I had to do my taxes and Jae had the health check and stuff.. Start preparing for everything..minus the health check.. before u get married and it’ll all go by really fast.) After we finished the first part we waited exactly a month to get our Packet 3 (interview packet) then we had an interview 2 weeks later. We could have interviewed sooner but Jae had to do the health check and was having trouble scheduling a time bc of work.

mistaytay asked: How do people in Korea treat mixed children? I saw one of your previous posts and I'm curious.

They aren’t treated very well….especially if you are mixed with black (because of course it’s more noticeable then). I had a student whose mother was Russian (he was a little shit hahaha but he looked strangely like baby justin timberlake) and I didn’t notice him getting treated any differently but his “biracialness” didn’t stand out all that much. I have a student in my class now whose dad is Japanese but the other kids think it’s more cool than anything but then again I teach elementary school kids…they aren’t assholes yet.

A friend of mine used to work for a charity that helped mixed kids (mostly kids who had fathers from the us military that abandoned their mothers) and there were tons (most of the actually) of kids mixed with black… The problem is just that…most of the kids mixed with black are poor…it’s so rare to see one from a functioning family and people generally associate mixed black kids with deadbeat dads and easy mothers. That’s unfortunate because it’s not always true (although u do see it a lot). Being mixed with white is somewhat more desirable as it’s associated with wealth and the fair skin it often produces is a plus. I think that either way it gets the ajummas whispering and gossiping. A white friend of mine actually left korea after she had a baby because she didn’t like all the evil stares she got and she felt that her child wasn’t being treated fairly but I don’t know the details.

It’s getting better tho and the korean kids don’t care as much as their parents do,.. The youth here is far more well traveled and they have a lot of exposure to foreigners (through English language programs) that it’s not as strange anymore. There are also quite a few pro athletes (in korea) and some singers that are “half” black so at least they get to see themselves on tv sometimes….

I’ll reply more later. At work haha

I forgot to wear a bra to work..to teach children.

I was so busy cleaning the house, getting ready for our move that I was almost late leaving for work…so put on my clothes and ran out of the house….

When I arrived at work I looked down and was like ….fuck….hahahahahahha…. Had to tape my nipples with scotch tape…

This is horrible.. My size d’s are too big for this.

Anonymous asked: Hello! I was wondering what is your shoe size in mm? If I remembered clearly I think you said you were a size 10 in women's us

I’m a 10.5..but sometimes a 10.. It really depends on the design of the shoe. I’ve worn both a size 270 (which is usually the absolute largest size offered in the “big size” speciality shops here) and a 275 (which is almost impossible to find unless u get shoes handmade or wear only men’s/unisex sneakers) .^_^
