Lesson learned in Korea: ALWAYS have an umbrella with you!

Hello Hello!!!

Week 2 of teaching: COMPLETE! I finished my week off on a high last night with my intermediate listening class, who thinks I am “funny”. I asked if that was a good thing or a bad thing, and they had no comment. But I think, and am hoping, it is a good thing. Then a group of us went to a “fish and grill” restaurant to eat, but no, we did not have any fish. Instead we had fries with cheese, fried chicken and some kind of pizza/wrap concoction. I left feeling a little less healthy than when I had entered. Then I came home and had a glass of wine. One a day is healthy, yes?

Oh yes, my title comes from the experience of trying to get from  the restaurant home. It was a beautiful day yesterday, not a cloud in the sky. As I was leaving to go to school I thought to msyelf “Maybe I should bring my umbrella, in case it rains when I come home”. And then I thought to myself, “no, it’s so nice out, it won’t rain, and if it does, i’ll just walk home in the rain, no biggy”. Well what do you think it did on my walk home? Yes, that is right, rain and RAIN it did. You would have thought we were being hit by a typhoon. We were a group of us, so atleast I was not all alone in the rain, and there we were, running around, hiding under cover anywhere we could. We stopped for awhile, under a building hoping it would pass, but it just got worse. By the time we were almost home we realized there was no point in trying to stay dry, we were completely soaked. I have never been so drenched in my life. So much for the dry cleaning that I had just gotten done the day of. So from now on when I leave my house, even if the sun is shining bright, I will always bring my umbrella with me.

I may visit the Korean Folk Village tomorrow, we shall see. I woke up this morning and cleaned my dishes that had begun to accumulate. I am going to head into school for a bit today to decorate my room, and put a Sara touch on it. Then I will probably check out the E-mart, which is a bit further away but bigger than the Lotte-mart aparently, and possibly check out the movie theatre. Hoping to make a dinner at home tonight and clean up my apartment; got to get rid of all the dust balls flying around. So a pretty relaxing  weekend so far.

Oh: I am being summoned to leave, to go to the classroom, so I must say good bye. Hope all is well! Love you! xoxox
