Yeah, I love my time in Korea to this point, but I am human and there’s definite stuff I miss about NY (do or die M-Fers, lol). Also, no mention of friends or family on this list because, obviously I miss those close to me from back in the states.
-Deli’s, Pizza Joints, basically anyplace where you can walk in and then walk out with really good food (besides fast food places).
-Being able to buy clothes pretty hassle free (6-4, 220 is not who Koreans make clothes for).
-NBA Playoffs, MLB (its not that I can’t follow it here, its just that a 13 hour time difference makes it real hard to ever see a game live).
-Real Hip-Hop (too many people here either dislike hip-hop or think that Soulja Boy is the best rap act going. No further comment needed).
-Miller High Life
-American Country Breakfasts
-non-Korean food (I love Korean food, but the non-Korean options in Korea just don’t match up in my opinion)
-Calling in sick for work (not really something you do here)
-American National Holidays (Korea has national holidays, but they have not yet figured out the benefits a firmly scheduled 3-day weekends. I will be very ornery on Memorial Day).
-All that stuff you can do in NY.
Ok, I’m done.
