Yesterday was the Halloween party at the academy. Usually, I get quite into the Halloween parties, but this year I guess I didn’t really have much of a spirit in me for it. As with last year, we had planned what we wanted to do beforehand. I was determined not to do the pumpkin bowling [...]

Halloween Party planning.

The Halloween party is now only a week away but preparations are well on their way to ensure it’ll be the best Halloween party I’ll have here in Korea. My first three Halloween parties in Andong were very memorable, although I was saddened to see the enthusiasm for them diminish during the three years I [...]
