So, Korea experiences monsoon season where it rains for about 2 months. Yay… you can all imagine how great my hair has been looking… hehe. And tomorrow Typhoon Khanun will be coming through Korea…. how exciting, my first typhoon experience!
Anyways, I’ve been so excited because the past few weeks my friend Hyejin was here with Chris and her brother John. We had so much fun playing and it was so nice seeing her because it made me less homesick. I will be home soon, just 4 and a half months left!
We also went to Lotte World and got to be super Asian tourists.
Then after she left, my friends and I went to Mudfest. Mudfest is a huge event in Korea and it is a pretty well known festival that usually lasts for 2 weekends.. I had an amazing time with my friends there even with it raining like crazy…. so you know everyone got super durrrrtyyy.
Here’s the gang when we first got to Boryeong, Daecheon Beach!! It was a bit foggy but you can still see the sailboats in the background.
We went with a traveling group called Adventure Korea and they set up a boot camp training session which was soooo much fun. This is Patrick, Michael, Teresa and I in our cute camo gear.
The mud is supposed to be really good for your skin, so we gave each other little mud masks, before we participated in the different events like mudwrestling and soccer.
It was pouring rain all night, but we all still had an amazing time. I am hooked on that song “How we do” and it seemed like the perfect theme for our weekend. I wanna party and bullsh*t! Haha everyone back home, yall should be happy to know, I definitely pulled a classic “Ashley” move, ran off, lost everyone and just danced by myself in the rain. I managed to make some new friends so it was all in good fun ;).
So I have a feeling that these next few months will fly by, so I am going to do everything I can to enjoy every minute of it. Most of my students have been actually tolerable recently, some even adorable. This is making me rethink the whole “never having kids” phase I was going through haha. I have even grown a soft spot for a few of my students because they are so adorable and smart. Some of my students just provide me with a lot of entertainment during some of my mundane days of teaching. I have a class of three 5th grade girls who love to talk about my love life (or lack thereof). They always ask me what I want in a boyfriend and of course I tell them tall and smart… The girls now tell me NO! teacher, rich and KOREAN! You have to marry KOREAN! haha they are so funny. These girls also told me that I only like three things, coffee, watches, and Hello Kitty. How do they know me so well?!
I even like my middle schoolers more especially because now I teach mostly the higher levels, so they can understand my English and even my sarcasm. They also recognize that I have a different accent from the other foreign teachers. So of course, I told them its because I am from the South… and southern accents are the best. Hahah
I am truly loving life and having the best time even with this rain!(Even thought I want it to stop soon) Oh here’s some eye candy for yall! Look closely ladies, they all have sexy hello kitty tats, and they’re all single!
