So, the countdown has begun, and there are just 6 days left until I take off to South Korea to begin life as a English language teacher. I’ve got something planned to do each day leading up until the big day, and today was dedicated to sleeping in and doing my hair.
I woke up at 11:20am today, and it was awesome. I probably could have slept in a little longer, but I really had to pee and then I realized that I needed to get started on my hair. I’ve learned how to braid my own hair with extensions so that I’m not ripped off in Korea like I was last time. I am NOT paying someone else $300 to day my hair ever again when I can do it myself for $6 and about 13 hours. Yes, 13 or more hours, but totally worth it.
My hair was already braided, but the braids around the circumference of my head were looking a bit ratchetrat (LOL), so I took time today to take those braids out, wash my hair, and redo those braids. I started at 3pm and finished at about 9pm. I forgot how big my head is! OMG – like daaaannnngggg!!! LOL!!
Tomorrow will be dedicated to getting my room together, and getting rid of stuff that I do need, won’t need when I return, and to packing things that I can’t bring with me, but would like to have when I get back. I don’t think it’s going to take that long, but then my mom dropped a bomb on me tonight saying that she’s going to move in my room when I leave! So now I have to get all my stuff together to move into my sister’s room because sh’e going to be moving into our mom’s room! I told them a month ago, if they gad any plans to switch rooms with me they needed to tell me then so I wouldn’t be stuck trying to do all of this right before I left. Now look!
Anyway . . . that’s the plan for tomorrow, Wednesday is shopping day. Thursday is begin packing day, Friday is tie any loose ends day. And Saturday is my brother and sister-in-law’s baby shower. Sunday I leave!!!
Oh I forgot. I just got an email saying that I needed to write a simple essay as a response to an “article” about Korean culture and its education system in addition to why I want to teach at the school I’m going to be teaching at specifically . . . . I’m a little mad that I got this just a week before I have to leave, and I’m busy, and I really upset that this was given so late, but what can I do? So, I’ll try to get to that tomorrow as well, gawd.
That’s it! I’ll do another post tomorrow and everyday leading up until the BIG DAY!!!!
