Some quick facts...

1. Movie theaters in Korea have assigned seats.
2. When you press the door close button in an elevator in Korea, the door closes. Right away. Koreans do not have time to waste in elevators apparently.
3. Army commissaries (grocery stores) do not have tax, but they do have something called a surcharge, which seems to function just like a tax.
4. Dunkin' Donuts is hip here. People have business meetings and dates there. I'm enjoying having a Dunkin' Donuts that is closer than the one in St. Joe's, MO.

I start my job tomorrow! I'll be teaching English to kids who are in kindergarten to fifth grade. It should be interesting to say the least!


  1. Love the blog Jackie. Good luck with your new job, you are now the 3rd person I know in ESL. Its amazing that with all our advanced schooling we can get paid well for a skill that we acquired primarily before the age of 5 in our free time.

  2. I think I'd like American theaters to have assigned seats. Come in with a huge group to see a movie and you don't have to wonder if you're there early enough to sit together. No standing there in the dark 2 minutes after the previews start, accidentally sitting on someone's lap because you thought the seat was empty. It's brilliant.

  3. Ooh! good luck with the new job!! I have been cracking up reading your posts as I just found out about your blog through Courtney- please keep them coming. And I have to agree that a baby in a bumble bee swim suit sounds too cute to handle
