I hardly ever eat ramyeon because it’s so salty and fattening but man, is it good! Throw some kimchi in it and some kimbap on the side, and you’ve got yourself a fantastic 3:00 lazy Sunday lunch!
Also, speaking of eating healthy, I met a Korean guy in a bar last night who I ended up going to Burger King with at almost 4 in the morning. I don’t usually go up and talk to guys because I am really shy but my friend wanted to meet him and I decided it was my duty to set them up. However everyone ended up leaving the bar and we were the only ones left. We wanted to leave, too, since it was pretty empty at that point because our friends had been at least half the people there. I wanted noodles or kimbap, and he wanted fast food, which he thought was ironic considering neither of us wanted our own country’s foods. We ended up stuffing our faces at Burger King, and we actually live near each other so we shared a taxi home and hung out more in my area, just talking. He never got creepy or tried to put the moves on me, which I found nice.^^ He left at 5:30 because I was literally falling asleep uncontrollably. He said we would meet again… hmmm…. let’s see.
Also, I thought this was funny- he was convinced I wasn’t American because he thought I didn’t have an American accent. (Actually, he lived in America for seven years, and in the state next to mine, so there’s no way I had a different regional accent.) He didn’t believe me when I told him I had never lived anywhere else in my life. He was convinced I was French or Italian (also because of the way I dressed, which he thought was ‘European’ which I guess means ‘not wearing Pink sweatpants and Ugg boots’) and English was my second language. Eventually we figured out why he thought this. Since I didn’t know how good his English was when we first started talking, I had purposefully been talking very slow and using simplified sentences with him, like I would when speaking to my students (“Where are you from? You like USA? How long in USA?”) and he interpreted that as me not being good at speaking English, rather than me trying to make myself easy to understand. After this, I just talked to him like I would talk to any native English speaker, and he understood everything. Even if I tried to say something really, really fast to test him. Maybe I’ll see him again. Maybe not. I sent him a message an hour ago; now it’s up to him.
