June Jamboree

I've been in Korea for a month. Almost.

So when I joined my gym last month, I also signed up for a "semi personal training" program.
It started yesterday, and goes on till June 30. So basically I get 3 weeks of "semi P.T."
The trainer just shows me how to do certain work outs, then goes to work with other members, then comes back to check up. It seems like a waste of money. It also seems as if it's their job to do that for ALL members. But people have to make money right? Might as well find ways to charge customers for something that should otherwise be free. If it's not 1 on 1 training, you shouldn't have to pay for it. Unless you think otherwise. Anyways, I'm working out regularly, and my goal is to lose 10 kg, or approximately 20.05 lbs, in 3 months. My gym membership expires in a little over 3 months.

Last time I was out here, I lost 14 pounds in 3 weeks, but I was basically starving myself (drinking this powder with water for every meal). The majority of the 14 pounds I lost was muscle. Despite the fact that I worked out every weekday during that time. I had no energy. It was basically one of the worst 3 weeks of my life. Didn't help that I'm in Korea, land of delicious food. So this time I'm taking a slower approach. I don't know if I'll be able to reach my goal, just because I don't know how my body will respond. But I will try my best. I hope.

The past two Fridays I've visited the dentist. He's an old family friend, so he hooks us up. I haven't been to the dentist in years, so I was glad I went. Sort of. I had 4 cavities, and had them cleaned out. I also got my one wisdom tooth pulled out. It was a bit of a surprise though, cause I didn't find out he was taking it out until I sat down in that awfully uncomfortable chair.

My teeth are still a little sore, but the pain is manageable without painkillers, but I have them just incase. To my surprise, I don't have swollen cheeks. Or rather, cheek. This disappointed a few friends. I was a little disappointed too. I was ready to take a lot of self portraits.
Something I don't like doing. You know, like holding the camera out and taking a picture of yourself, usually from an angle, whether up or down, depending on your mood?

I don't care if other people do it. I mean, I do, but whatever I'm not them. People can do what every they want to do, as long as it makes them happy, regardless of what I or others think. But if it doesn't make you happy, don't do it, cause it's counterproductive.

BUT there is one time you shouldn't be taking self portraits. That's when you're in the car.
Specifically the driver seat. In the middle of traffic.

I saw this girl doing exactly that. She must have taken like 10 pictures of herself. I think 1-3 is fine. But 10? That's borderline narcissism.

I'm almost done applying to Yonsei's KLI program. The website's a piece of shit, so I have to go in for scheduling. I also have to submit my transcript. I'm also not sure if they got my essay or not, cause the website is worthless.

Once I start classes, I should be pretty busy, and things should start to be more fun. Not that I'm not having a great time now. I am, but it's more of a, "I'm doing nothing" kind of fun. I need more "experience new things" kind of fun.

It's a new month, so that means new playlist.
I like this playlist. I mixed in a few oldies but goodies.

Again, I upload all my pictures onto Facebook. It's easier that way, unless someone has a better idea. Then tell me!
