Since I'm coming home in a month, I want to warn you about the habits I've picked up while I've been in Korea. All I ask is that you're not too hard on me when I get home. I'm sure the worst are the ones that go unnoticed, but here are the ones I've picked up on...
2.) Wear socks with sandals
3.) Suck air between my teeth when I'm in disagreement/don't know something.
4.) Say "maybe you should..." when I mean "you definitely have to..."
5.) Wave hello with both hands
6.) Eat rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
7.) Enjoy eating plain rice
8.) Openly use mirrors in the subway (or anywhere)
9.) Refuse to wear my shoes indoors.
10.) Find sitting on the floor quite comfortable.
11.) Cut my food with scissors.
12.) Compartmentalize my life.
13.) Clap when I'm happy.
14.) Give everyone my bank information and ID number without ever thinking twice about it.
15.) Break my fun sized snickers bar in 4 pieces to share with my friends.
16.) Find it impossible to walk in a straight path.
17.) Everything is "delicious"
18.) My most common response to "how are you" is "so-so"
19.) Refuse to go anywhere without my pencil case.
20.) Loudly shout at the waiter for service.
21.) Wait 5 minutes at a crosswalk, even though there's no traffic.
