God. I had the absolute worst samguypsal ever on Saturday night. My friend Samantha picked a place, it charged 12 bucks per person so 24 for both!! It was the grossest looking shit ever. Even after cooked it was nasty.
This compared to the place I was taken to on Friday night which was by far the nicest looking samguypsal I’ve seen. Came with lots of sides, and the staff didn’t seem pissed we were there. AND it was only 6 bucks a person! WTF. I love it! I am now craving it by talking about though~ Damn.
This topic is completely open to discussion and I won’t get offended if you disagree with me or tell me I’m wrong. However, if you are really smart and have a lot of good points, I might get tired and go back to reblogging animal pictures and not respond until the weekend. (Blogging on…
Wow~ I have had problems with the church people. They don’t anymore because I finally said “fuck off” but if I said no they would grab my arms and try to drag me to a corner. I also had a guy who even though I said I was tired and wanted to go home, forced me by stopping the elevator from closing to come out and “talk with him” and then proceeded to tell me how he could tell I was “pure” unlike girls on Saturday night at Itaewon[wtf]. So I gave him my number with the intention of handling it just like I do in Canada. Ignoring every call from the number now labeled creeper. He threatened me with “I know where you live and will come wait there everyday until you talk to me”. He didn’t as far as I know but I did take the back entrance for a few weeks.
Anyways, I mostly agree that most people here seem less aggressive. Especially in bars. I’m really impressed that mostly if I tell them no in a bar they leave it at that, which often doesn’t happen in Canada. But I’d stay there are still a lot of loonies in the barrel here too~ Not that you said there weren’t~
[TW: rape culture] If we teach women that there are only certain ways they may acceptably behave, we should not be surprised when they behave in those ways.
And we should not be surprised when they behave these ways during attempted or completed rapes.
Women who are taught not to speak up too loudly or too forcefully or too adamantly or too demandingly are not going to shout “NO” at the top of their goddamn lungs just because some guy is getting uncomfortably close.
Women who are taught not to keep arguing are not going to keep saying “NO.”
Women who are taught that their needs and desires are not to be trusted, are fickle and wrong and are not to be interpreted by the woman herself, are not going to know how to argue with “but you liked kissing, I just thought…”
Women who are taught that physical confrontations make them look crazy will not start hitting, kicking, and screaming until it’s too late, if they do at all.
Women who are taught that a display of their emotional state will have them labeled hysterical and crazy (which is how their perception of events will be discounted) will not be willing to run from a room disheveled and screaming and crying.
Women who are taught that certain established boundaries are frowned upon as too rigid and unnecessary are going to find themselves in situations that move further faster before they realize that their first impression was right, and they are in a dangerous room with a dangerous person.
Women who are taught that refusing to flirt back results in an immediately hostile environment will continue to unwillingly and unhappily flirt with somebody who is invading their space and giving them creep alerts.
People wonder why women don’t “fight back,” but they don’t wonder about it when women back down in arguments, are interrupted, purposefully lower and modulate their voices to express less emotion, make obvious signals that they are uninterested in conversation or being in closer physical proximity and are ignored. They don’t wonder about all those daily social interactions in which women are quieter, ignored, or invisible, because those social interactions seem normal. They seem normal to women, and they seem normal to men, because we were all raised in the same cultural pond, drinking the same Kool-Aid.
And then, all of a sudden, when women are raped, all these natural and invisible social interactions become evidence that the woman wasn’t truly raped. Because she didn’t fight back, or yell loudly, or run, or kick, or punch. She let him into her room when it was obvious what he wanted. She flirted with him, she kissed him. She stopped saying no, after a while.
I will reblog this every time it crosses my dash. I’m always facing unbelievable amounts of nastiness from guys when I don’t flirt back, and sometimes it’s just like, fine, I don’t have the energy to deal with your little insecurity tantrum, here’s a fake smile, go fuck yourself. And this is happening to all of us, all the time. And then people call us on our insincerity.
Fuck. I hate skype. Does it not annoy anyone else how when you open it and then sign out and close the application it does not really close. It stays open and uses up CPU stuff and slows my computer down? Well my computer is a piece of shit anyways so maybe it doesn’t bother anyone else. PS don’t buy a computer in Korea. oivay.
Also, I am in pjs lounging in bed doing nothing. Why? Yes I am a little tired from last night but that’s not why. It’s because I slept fucked up on my neck, kinked it and now have a crazy neck headache. boo.
On the positive side: WOW Korean decongestants really work! Like I usually just tough out a runny stuffed nose because when I take decongestants they make my nose really dry in the front but still plugged in the back :( BUT the korean ones get rid of all mucus~ yay~ Also isn’t the word mucus just great~ HAHAHA~ reminds me of when I was taking invertabrate zoology and we had to learn about these worms that make a net of mucus to trap their pray and then eat the whole net and the stuff they trapped. Ladies I sense a new way to catch men ;)
Medication may be making me loopy. Uggg though the antibiotics are the kind that make your mouth taste like you’re licking a cats asshole. No I don’t have first hand experience. But I’ve owned cats. Seen their assholes and I imagine that if I DID try it, this would be the taste sensation. Also when the doctor said “take on an empty stomach” I thought it was just so it would break down quickly and what not. No. That is not why. It was because it makes you feel like you’re about to vomit. Bad decision eating this morning. Still feel a little queasy.
I also have a really big urge to go buy oatmeal and a coffee grinder. For what do I need these things you might ask. How are they related I hear you wonder aloud~ Well I’ve been hearing everyone on my beauty blogs raving about washing your face with oatmeal. And the thing is you can leave it chunky but my drains hardly drain as it is. So one lady suggested grinding it in a coffee grinder and then mixing it with matcha and yogurt~ Sounds yum and I’ve done oatmeal masks before and they really are great~ Of course I live in freakin Korea so finding these will likely be more of an ordeal than it would be back home ~ Obviously this wont clean off makeup and I also don’t mind grinding it and losing the exfoliation benefit as at night I use my Clarisonic Mia with my Biore cleanser^^ GO BUY that cleanser right now at Olive and Young. Its like washing your face with a fucking cloud. It’s so great~ They have a 2fer pack right now that’s only 16 bucks ~
Anyways I should get my lazy ass off the bed and go to Emart~ I love Emart btw. It’s way better than Homeplus as it has an organic section ~ Also what I find weird is sometimes the stuff in the organic section is CHEAPER than the regular stuff. Like green tea! It was a bigger pack than the ones I saw in the regular aisle but was slightly cheaper~ AND organic so bonus! I also find I end up wasting a lot of time looking at all the house stuff in Homeplus and then wishing I could just have started with an empty apartment so it would be all my decorating choices. I think if I can re-sign I will slowly replace some of the furniture here~ I guess you could say that is throwing my money away as when I leave I can’t take it but really the furniture is so cheap here and I feel like my place looks crowded and weird. I’m already sending home a bunch of stuff I took and realized I don’t really need to have with me here but it still seems so crowded! How does everyone organize their apartments so nicely?
Because I’m super sick of people saying that Canadian/American girls dress “slutty” for Halloween. Fuck off its a fun holiday and plenty of my friend have provocative and scary outfits they are not mutually exclusive.
Oh my word. This is like that time when that other girl asked if men could be raped. The answer is so obvious and yet so hard to articulate. Calling someone a slut is a way of punishing the person (almost exclusively women) for their sexuality. This person does not actually need to be having sex with anyone. They may be a virgin. They may or may not be wearing provocative clothing. Really, slut is an insult used at any time toward any woman. Because using slut is a way of shaming and oppressing women. Why do women, such as yourself, feel the need to slut shame other women? From Feminism 101:
The first thing to realize when talking about women slut-shaming each other is that infighting among oppressed groups is a necessary part for keeping those groups oppressed; ergo women are encouraged, through internalized sexism, to distrust each other and fight for male approval.
Aside from which, it’s just poor manners to be up in somebody else’s business, judging their consensual sexual activities. Whatever you personal beliefs about sex, there is never a reason or an excuse to degrade another human being.
Worlds cutest couple alert!!
Its this tall beautiful Korean girl and cute well dressed [for a white guy - still shabby sneakers and ill fitting jeans but better than average] guy~
They keep holding hands amd smiling with that secret smile you save for when you really love someone ♥
They got some rude stares from a peaches and cream sparkly tie wearing sourpuss but I stared with a smile on my face~ Congrats to them for finding what seems to be genuine happiness♥
Wow, it’s a good thing I came home when I did. I blew my nose so hard my ears popped and I felt dizzy and almost fell! wheeeewwww MUST drag my ass to yonsei tomorrow and see the doctor~ I’m sure if your nose, throat and ears are hit its bacteria!
