Hey, well, I didn’t get my chocolate fix, but maybe that is a good thing. First Easter I’ve had where I haven’t gained weight. I actually had a light b.fast and some tofu and healthy food all day. Weekend was good.Friday just chilled with the girl, had some food inside and a couple of drinks. Saturday went hiking to Bukhansan, a mountain in North Seoul. IT was really good. Crazy hike which u would never find in Canada, at times u have to use the chain that is provided to pull yourself up the rock side and since it was Saturday afternoon it was really busy so there was maybe 30 people goin both ways through a trail meant to walk in single file. Was good. Great view at the top, although we couldn't stay too long as we slept in too much in the morn. and I had to get home as I had a party planned that night.
Party was decent...less than half of the people who were gonna come showed up, I guess its a little hard to have most people traveling a solid hour to get here...wont get he turnout as I did at home...plus the people here have a little more in the way of plans than the peeps at home. Still played some Kings drinking games, had fun and went to the Noreabong (KTV) after. Hung over sunday, but eventually went back intop downtown Seoul and met with my GF's roommates that she lived with in the Philippines. Drank lots of dong dong ju (kind of dark white rice wine or somethin), and had a good night.
The Christians here out in full force yesterday trying to find converts....got some nice boiled Easter eggs, same cellophane style as back home from some girls on the street who were brave enough to approach me/....that was nice. But the foreigners in the station running from person to person trying to talk to them got a good, f. off when they came to talk to me.Thats about all...getting a new cell today as my last one stopped working (long story). Things are good. Weather is awesome, all the cherry blossoms and trees are out and its full on spring now. Classes are still long and I couldn’t imagine staying here for a year, but only a month left...I can manage that.
Worried about how im gonna leave though...I dont know if I will be able to tell them Im leaving. I dont know if they will let me. If they get another foreign teacher maybe, but thats just iffy right now. Plus I wanna figure the getting paid stuck most importantly, and the director is right and tweaked and I could see her witholding..might have to do it the bastardly way. Oh, take the money and run.We shall see. Things will work out I’m sure. Break times almost over...here we go again. Talk to you soon,Miss ya,
