Vagabonding There is no shortcut to anywhere worth going.


SOUTH KOREA | Friday, 11 June 2010 | Views [543]

I have a few things to note here....

1) I have been fairly stressed out this week. I can't stop thinking about what I am going to do for my summer break. Which country to choose... and then I remember that I must be friggin nuts to be stressed out over picking a vacation spot.  And if that is the most of my worries... I have no worries in the world really. 

2) The first Friday I taught here in Korea, I taught one class TGIF.  Thank goodness it's Friday.  That stems all the way back to that awesome Friday line up on TV that was funny family sitcom after funny family sitcom.  Well, that is how TGIF got etched into my brain anyways.  So one of my students, every Friday, since I started, comes and finds me to say to me, "Christina teacher, TGIF, TGIF!"  I still never expect it and it always makes me smile. 

3) I did not teach my favoite class today but I was lucky enough to be coming out of the cafeteria when they were lined up outside, waiting to go in.  All of thier faces lit up when I saw them and the chorus of Hellos rang out strong.  One student was even brave enough to whisper, "we miss you", even though I was walking with his regular English teacher.  

4) Food things... on my way home from work I stopped in the Dunkin Donuts for the first time.  They have Snyder's Honey Mustard & Onion pretzel pieces.  Hell yea!  And for dinner, a Vietnamese Restaurant just opened in my neighborhood so we are checking it out tonight!  I am crossing my fingers for Pad See Ew!!!

Tomorrow's agenda.... I am cooking a real American Breakfast, hiking, language exchanging, going to see my friend Greg's band and watching the World cup match, Korea v Greece!
