Watching the Super Bowl in South Korea

Posted on Fri, Feb 06, 2015 @ 12:34 PM

As a Boston boy, I have been insanely spoiled with the unprecedented run of sporting championships over the past fourteen years. The Bruins in hockey, the Celtics in basketball, the Red Sox in baseball, and of course the New England Patriots in football, arguably the best sports franchise in the last decade thanks to its ridiculous winning record in the NFL. While I am definitely a fan of these first three franchises, my deepest allegiance lies with my beloved Patriots. So, that is why I am in such a giddy mood because they once again brought home the Vince Lombardi trophy for the fourth time since 2001. Now I am not going to give you a play-by-play account of the game, since this is not a sports blog, but I figured writing about watching the Super Bowl in South Korea still warranted a blog post.

Banking Tips: For English Teachers in South Korea

Posted on Sat, Feb 22, 2014 @ 01:09 PM

When I first came to South Korea to Teach English, I had many questions and things to do. Like getting a cell phone or opening up a bank account. Luckily for me, my school helped me with both. Within a week of being in Korea I had a cell phone and a bank account. This blog will explain the process of opening up a bank account for English Teachers in South Korea. It will cover everything from opening up the account, to transfering money home and to day-to-day banking here in Korea (which is pretty awsome and cheap!).
