All my life I have been the under dog --- the guy who's the loser the guy who gets picked second to last but not last the guy who is always in the wrong place at the wrong time..... 

Yet I can not complain.  Sometime I get my day in the sunlight and I can pull out the glory banner and wave it proudly.

 As a native english speaker teaching conversation english to Koreans in the Philippines the sunny days are plenty but the glory days a very few. 

It's a bit weird living in a country that I look like a Filipino my name is Filipino but I lived in the good old USA for 20+ years and don't have a clue about this culture. 

 I am a man without a country since I've hopped from country to country teaching or volunteering the past few years. I'm used to being the odd man out or even being the only man in all woman teaching staff.  As for all you single guys out there it's not all that cracked up to be. 

 It get's old being the only guy around beautiful young girls almost half your age. 

Well maybe tomarrow this dog will get his "bone"

I'll let all of you chew on my random thoughts about nothing for a bit.

Remeber it is not that I want to stand out it is just that I do not want to blend in.

United States

As a native korean speaker, I am desperately try to improve my english in US where I just lived for 3 years.

I was born and grew up in Korea for 30 years and moved to US.

My feeling is a bit different from yours, I guess.

Anyway.. Your frank post gave me a moment to think about being your situation.

That was good.. thanks.
