Change in the Air. Change in the Water.

6 Apr

Ok guys. I suck. I am back into teacher mode which means I wear baggy GAP tees, leggings and Toms everyday. Hardly worth a snap shot. My wardrobe and I are not feeling ourselves. I am blaming the gastro flu we all seemed to come to down with. Not to mention the cold that’s been plaguing me all week. I’m pretty sure my nose is going to fall off by tomorrow…

We were playing table tennis on our kitchen table this morning (shh, don’t tell my Mum…) when the ball hit me full pelt into my chest. I almost cried. I am feeling emotional and I’m blaming the change in the air. It might sound pathetic, but that thing left a red mark for hours! Ping pong was not on the top of my list of most dangerous games out there. Until today.

So. Brownies honour; I will be back to my normal self next week, even if I have to give my immune system a kick up the ass myself. For now though, this video is of one of my new co-teachers, Jenna, performing one of her songs accompanied by some of her friends. I think she has such a magical, enchanting voice and I thought that some of you out there might appreciate these soothing sounds.

Song for a Saturday Morning.

Home- Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

This is the song I’m listening to as I pack my final few belongings into my suitcase. Isn’t it amazing? They just released tour dates, so if you’re State Side or on European soil- go see them! I wish we could. ‘Home is whenever I’m with you’- it’s nice to keep this in mind as my boyfriend and I both say goodbye to our beloved England once again. Our parents are home to us too and while it’s difficult to say farewell to them, I think they understand that travelling is all we want to do right now.

So tomorrow we will embark on our long journey- and when I next post we will  be back in South Korea. See you then!

A Song For A Sunday Morning.

My younger half sister posted this song by Daughter on my older half sister’s facebook wall. It is so pretty so I stole it for you to have a listen. Enjoy.

Song of the Weekend- 아메리카노.

7 Aug

Last weekend at Jisan Valley Rock Festival we only saw two Korean bands. Considering one of them was a Beatles tribute band called The Tatles, I thought I should share with you the other, 10cm, singing their most famous track ‘Americano’ or ‘아메리카노’. They were great live, and while I can only translate a basic version of this song in my basic Korean, I can tell you that it is very upbeat. These guys are great, and it’s very catchy stuff….

Stress Release.

24 Feb

I’ve had a verrrrry stressful day today, which I will explain on another day. So, I felt the need to listen to some calming music. Something sweet that reminded me of less stressful times. A song that used to make me want to be a puppet in another person’s magical world. This the The Boy Least Likely To with Be Gentle With Me.

Oh What a Cutie, Hey, Jude.
