I’m baaaaaaAAAAAAAAAck! LOL!!!
So, I have a confession. I will not be talking about my room in this post as I stated in my last post. Why? Well, I didn’t clean my room. Boom. On to the next!
So, Christina, what are you going to talk about in this post? Well, I’m glad you asked! In this post I’m going to be talking about my first week of full-time teaching and things that I’ve been doing outside of teaching.
Teaching. Well, let’s just say it was a looooooooonnnnnnnngggggg week. I mean, dang. I was so exhausted by Friday, that I didn’t feel like doing or thinking about anything. Why was it so exhausting? Unlike most English teachers who are currently in Korea, I am not teaching the same group of students for a semester. I work at an English village that is ran pretty much like a camp. A camp as in the students come for a week, I see same class maybe twice, at the most, and I’m teaching only 45 minute-long lessons that are situationals. What is a situational? Essentially, it’s a mock-room of another room such as a news studio or a grocery store, and I teach lessons regarding that situation. It’s actually pretty neat, but overall very exhausting because the kids are WILD! They’re also pretty physical, at least the boys – yet some girls, too.
On top of teaching and being exhausted with extremely sore feet because we have to stand nearly the entire day looking all cute and dolled up, I wasn’t feeling well this whole week, so my body and nerves were just shot.
Tomorrow starts a new week, and I’ll be teaching the same situationals as this past week, so I’m going to make some changes to see if things work out a little better.
What have I been doing OUTSIDE of teaching, huh, huh??? Well, uhh, not much! LOL!!!!!!!!! Because we don’t really have much time to do anything for the rest of the day being that we live so far from . . . . . well, things, many of us don’t get out as much until the weekend arrives. I’ve been getting to know people, hangout, get a better understanding of people, you know.
Friday night, I went with a couple of friends to a bar. Coco did not come out, but if I would have had a another drink, I’m pretty sure she would have brought her blankity-blank out, LOL!!! That night was fun though. Some of the other teachers joined us at the bar, and we had a really great time.
Today, I went to the bank to open a new account, and was greeted by a bunch of students from Sri Lanka who were also opening accounts. There was a dude there helping everyone out, and he was hitting on me sooooooo hard, LOL!!! He gave me his card, and told me to add him on Facebook, <.<) . . . . . . yeah, okay pal. LOL!!!! When I was done with that I went to an underground shopping center, bought some chicken in a cup (awesome stuff), bought some stuff from Innisfree (cosmetics store), and when I was about to leave and go back home, I saw some friends from the village going out, so I just stayed and hung out with them. We ate, walked around, and took pictures on the computer in an Apple Store-like place, except it was called Frisbee. We also stopped by the Hello Kitty Cafe!!!
We did a lot actually, but I had a great time! Check out my two photos!! Yes, just two. Since this is my second time to Korea, I’m not really enthused to take photos because I’ve seen most of it already. But you should still enjoy them!!
That all for this week. Not sure what I’ll write about next week – maybe, I’ll actually clean my room and write about it, LOL!! See ya!
