Being an Expat in South Korea

  I don’t like the term “Expat.” I had never even heard it until I moved here. When I first heard it, I thought it meant people who had permanently left their countries. But no, we already have a word for them. They are called immigrants. The thing is, when I moved here it was […]

Safest Country in the World

In a recent study, it was determined that South Korea is the safest country in the world. I have not even seen the whole world yet, but I could have easily told you this before the study came out. I walk down the streets at night here, and I feel safe. You see a guy […]

Being an Expat

We are all here for different reasons. With me, I had a health problem that was expensive to manage in the US and is cheap here in South Korea. But lots of guys came here to date Korean women. Others came to learn about the culture. Some came to pay off student loans. Some couldn’t […]

Bernie or Bust

I didn’t like Hillary Clinton in 2008, and I voted for Obama instead. He betrayed me by bombing seven countries in six years and being a really lousy liberal. Now Hillary Clinton is back. I still don’t like her. But I would have voted for her in November anyway, because Donald Trump is an idiot. […]


This is the rant that is going to be my downfall. I just know it. And yet, I have to say these things… You can’t shoot someone without a gun. There is actually a connection between guns and shootings. That’s a fact. I know my Arizona friends will hate me for saying so, but I […]

Hillary Clinton is a Poor Choice

A lot of people lately have tried to paint Hillary Clinton as a “progressive,” which is the new made-up term that only exists in the USA, and means approximately the same thing as having liberal political views. First, I want to assure you that Hillary Clinton is not a liberal, nor does she value liberal […]


Now that I live overseas, I can no loner say that I am “from America” and have people know what country I mean. This is because “America” is not a country. It is two entire continents with 55 countries total. All the people in those 55 countries consider themselves to be “Americans” because they are […]

Friends Back Home

I think this post should probably start with a quote I love: “I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.” – Thomas Jefferson to William Hamilton, April 22, 1800 Now of course, I do love this quote, but I also know that it […]

The Cost of Living

      Today I want to talk to Americans about the Cost of Living. In the USA many people struggle with rent, food, healthcare premiums, taxes, car maintenance, and other things. I know. I am from a really bad neighborhood in Phoenix, Arizona. When I moved, something amazing happened. It was like I had […]

The World is Watching

    First: This blog is written by an “expat,” who is voicing the feelings of the expat community. So what does that even mean? Well, and “expat” or ex-patriot is someone lives overseas. We moved overseas for various reasons, but mainly it was the lack of good jobs in the USA right now. Everything […]
