Black Barbie Chronicles: Me and My Gang


So, I’m legal and working in Korea, what else do I need? Well, a gang!  Not a real gang; just a group of idiots I hang out with and kick the shit with on the daily.  Anyway, here’s that tale.  Check it out and laugh, cry, rate!  Enjoy.

Black Barbie and her “Gang”

      So I’ve been in Korea about 19 days. Being that I arrived in November, I missed the Fall TITS orientation. What I got was some half-ass crash course in living and teaching in Korea.

I met up with Elisha Cho, the coordinator for the MOE in Busan. It turns out I was not the only late one to the TITS party. There were 3 other people arriving late as well. These were Lauren, the Aussie, Niall, the Irishman, and Uhuru- Running Wolf, The Black Guy. Yeah, I know…weird dude. I forgot the actual name on his birth certificate, but he legally changed his name to Running Wolf.

We are a crazy bunch. I can’t see myself hanging out with a better bunch of people. They make working in this country great. I find the whole lot a smashing good time. I can predict that we will have many, many drunken nights and mornings. Hell, maybe we’ll end up sharing a cell together.
Anyhoo, we met up with Elisha for a tour of downtown. Downtown was nice and all we were introduced to what was to be a great and exciting time. I really enjoyed the time I had.

I was introduced to Soju, which by itself tastes like ass. However, if it is mixed in a pitcher of smoothies, you can’t taste the Soju, which can be lethal. That shit can sneak up upon you so fast! One minute you’re sitting down enjoying yourself, the next you find yourself unable to stand. Then again, I guess it could be the 3 pitchers we had which made it difficult to stand. I predict that Soju and I will become very good friends.
