Student Elections

I forgot how cute the 6th graders are during student elections time. They get their friends together, make campaign posters and march around the front of the school. Today, as I walked into school, this group of boys made sure I knew to vote for #4 (I don’t even get a vote). Later, when I stepped back outside to take more photos, these girls ran over with their signs. So today you get two photos because I couldn’t pick just one.

The boy in the center is running (obviously). Update: He won the election.

The girl on the left is running. You can also see some of the campaigning madness in the background.

Tonight I ordered a Gorgonzola pizza for dinner. It was a bit of a surprise when it came out topped with potato chips.

I took this photo today at Woobang Tower Land in Daegu. I went on a road trip with Dave, Shanna and Jamie (the duo has been affectionately named Shamie). We were going to eat in the revolving restaurant in the tower, but as it turns out, no one was in the mood for robster.

If you’re ever out and about in Korea and are in desperate need of a pair of socks, don’t worry! Socks are sold EVERYWHERE! This truck is parked across the street from my apartment quite often.

I got this amazing care package in the mail today from Ashleigh. It was so thoughtful. I knew she was going to send Girl Scout Cookies, but the rest was a complete surprise. I absolutely love it!

I get instant messages (in Korean) on my work computer all day long. I usually translate them because I’ve found it’s the best way to stay informed. The translations are really butchered, but I can usually tell what’s important and what isn’t.

Today I found this gem waiting for me when I got back from lunch…. Apparently only 8 out of 10 Koreans fart. Who would have known? Haha

Today was a bit stressful for me. My teaching schedule keeps getting changed. The changes wouldn’t be that big of a deal except I’m now expected to turn in lesson plans to the vice principal for a class that I have no idea how to teach and I’m not getting much support from my co-teacher.

I am fortunate enough to have amazing friends and a fantastic boyfriend. I had to cancel going to Costco with the girls tonight because I was feeling overwhelmed by work stuff. Dave offered to come down to Busan a night early because I was having a rough day. I picked up this cake on the way home as a thank you for coming down.

Jamie called me after she got back from Costco. She had picked up a chicken bake for me. So sweet.
