A Week in Photos #9

Since Masan, I ate burritos for like 4 days straight…so like a total of 12? ^__^ Yeah, I know I know…but I needed to savor the awesomeness that is cilantro. Jiseon came over and we made guacamole. Sadly the avocado was not ripe so it had no strong flavor and was hard as a rock. We got creative and steamed it until soft. Adding lemon solved it all. It was amaaazing.

I’ve been rocking these awesome new slippers that Chris sent me from back home. Oh he knows me too well lol. I could probably almost outdo Cookie Monster in a Cookie Eating Race. 

Patient in a Korean hospital

As per usual, I had to make a run to the hospital for another checkup for my school. Thankfully I made a case for myself and made sure I didn’t have to get ANOTHER x-ray done. Woo hoo …no radiation! And then I saw this woman, and she made the stressful visit a bit more humorous. Hehee shopping with an IV still in her arm. Epic.

I went skiing this past weekend to Phoenix Park, located in the same city that the 2018 Olympic Games will take place in. It was epic! Mostly because I thought I was going to die (since I always get pretty hurt every time I go skiing). But the weather was perfect! no wind at ALL and so it wasn’t even cold! And it was natural snow. PLUS, it was really foggy but only at the top of the mountain. It was surreal skiing through it, quiet beautiful! Most of all, I did pretty well actually~! I was shocked!

My students finished their exams so really I’ve become a babysitter this week. I hate when exams are at the beginning of the week. Throws my whole schedule off. So here is one of my favorite students watching a Korean drama, because it’s filled with “handsome boys” according to them. I let them watch and explain to me in English, but I had to laugh as I looked up and saw Lisa knitting. I laughed and told her that she looked like an ajumma (technically a married woman, but we use it to just mean old) knitting away while watching soap operas.

Dory left this past week so it was another goodbye. I went to her house to hang out and here she is showing off her awesome 90’s folder she actually had brought from the States.

The cold here has become unbearable! (>_<) I’ve lost two pairs of boots to the wet cold weather. Oh well, at least that means shopping is a must! lol

My students are picking up their new textbooks for next year. In Korea, the school term starts in March (Not in September). I was a little sad because these 2nd graders are picking up their 3rd grade books (aka their 9th grade books) and I won’t be teaching them since I only teach the first two grades in middle school. Sad!
