I’ve been so healthy since I moved too Korea. Not so much the diet but the fact that I hate ALL the junk food. Even traditional american brands like Dorritos and Cheetos come in flavors I can’t get used to. My brothers candy and snack package is going to kill me. If you want to live a better lifestyle move to a country where you hate all the junk food.
Metrosexuality is so ~in~ in this country that it’s so hard to tell who is a homo and who just looks it. Like for music festivals dudebros on steroids turn up all fake-tanned and in short shorts. You have to try extra hard to look like a ‘faggot’
If I learned anything from aus/nz coworkers your society isn’t as violent as ours despite the whole shared colonial thing, I may be wrong. I just think back to Los Angeles when I had to commute two hours to work in my part time job for a major gay nonprofit. I had to come from my own low income neighborhood, crossing 4 other low income neighborhoods on my two hour commute. I had to navigate lots of very different spaces and I had to tough it up at serval bus stations like “you’re not gonna fuck with me I’m just like you.” This was just for wearing button ups with cute prints and colored slacks to work. I get that it was tensions of many people thinking I was a hipster and that I was aligned with those ppl trying to displace them. Then I’d go to the west side and face more classism/racism because I took the bus rather than homphobia. Even in college though so many white surfer frat bros calling me faggot from my way home from school. The perils of looking cute and not hyper masculine man of color in America.
I love that I can own salmon pink short shorts and bright blue pants here and not be called a faggot for wearing them.
