They got Soul in Seoul

I remember when I was young. I’m not talking age here. I know 25 is still young, but I’m talking about pulling all-nighters and bouncing back the next day. I can still do it, but the bounce back part just keeps getting harder and harder. On Saturday night after work, my friend Kyle and I headed up to Seoul. The plan was drink in the park and listen to rock/jazz bands, get a second wind, drink on the rooftop of a nearby building, get a third wind, eat horrible food at Taco Bell, get a fourth wind, take the train home and pass out on Sunday morning. I feel like when I was 21 this kind of thing was easily accomplished…it’s getting tougher, much tougher. So, more practice? Perhaps. Anyway, as we were up in Seoul, I saw a good amount of things to post for today, and here they are:

“Where can we get some girls in this city?”

In a city like Seoul there are a ton of bars. This chain of bars is found in Hongdae and there are about 6 of them. Ya, that’s right, there are six of them in this part of the city. Because of its economic success, the Ho bar has completely out-competed and closed both “Whore Bar” and “Loose Women Bar.” I didn’t get a chance to look inside, but as a betting man, I would put money down that it’s just a bunch of dudes in there.

“What the monkey?”

I saw this one as I was in one of the restrooms at the park. As an English teacher you have an order of operations: 1) Teach basic English grammar and phrases, 2) Teach Conversational, Listening, and Reading skills, 3) Teach slang and dirty language because it sounds funny from a kid, 4) Realize that you should have NEVER taught them those words, 5) Teach the kids to censor their own dirty language with random words like a good Christian Baptist woman. I mean, maybe that isn’t the exact order, but what the monkey, it’s close enough.


“This Wild” Cigarette brand

I bought these cigarettes as I was walking through the park. I don’t smoke, but if I did, I think I would want a brand that let everyone know just how wild of a person I am. People are always asking me, “Jordan, how wild are you?” and I always say, “Oh, I’m pretty wild.” Then they always respond, “Ya, but how wild do your cigarettes say you are?” and then I lose street cred. Also, I read Game of Thrones twice (cause I’m a nerd like that) and have a real desire for my family to have a crest. Direwolves? No, I’m thinking a sigil of a white gorilla arm coming out of a crown with a cigarette between its fingers on a field of black. Ya, then they will know who should really be the king.

A guy who was gonna sign his blog, but what the monkey, I’m too tired…

About Jordan Carver

I just love life, experiencing it all, and it is definitely better with more people participating. Whether it's surfing, rock climbing, or exploring the forests, it's always better to share the magic.
