Seriously, I don't know why college campuses don't offer this ramen brand. It's AMAZING. I seriously chose ramen over (the best) fried chicken. Mmmmm. Lip-burning goodness.
Tuesday and Thursdays are definitely my favorite days. I have a lighter class load (6), and it's all little kids. Usually I'm just tickled pink, but today I realized in my classes that I really haven't ... taught them anything. One of my classes is comprised of kindergartners who go to Korean kinder, then come for English lessons after. After 2 weeks, now, they still don't understand the concept behind "fill in the blank," and they don't understand enough English for me to explain it, I guess. So the 40 minutes ended, and we were equally frustrated with each other by the end of the session. I'm going to have to work on something for Thursday--this can't continue.
The last class is the same situation as the one I just described, except they're even younger and in an even lower class. I'm pretty sure they don't ever look at their books except for when they're in class, which really makes remembering vocabulary difficult. The parents don't want the kinder guys to have any homework, so I'm not really sure what to do.
Other than eat ramen and clean my apartment. Simultaneously delicious and scary! The chuseok (chusok, lots of spellings) cookies han bak (that's my interpretation of what it was called, anyway) are deeeelicious.
Something interesting about Korea that I wanted to point out, I sent 2 packages home and included my cell phone number on the return label. They actually TEXT you when international packages arrive at Seoul, so you know where things are going to be! Love it.
I started re-reading Captivating, and it's enriching my nights as I search for God's opinion of me, and I wrote down a preliminary list of things I like about me. I got 20 new pens, so I kind of had to use some imagination so I could use each of them. Bwuaha.
Use all the photos...
