Christmas Tree 2009.

On Tuesday, December 1st, we put the Christmas tree up once again. Oddly enough, it doesn’t feel that long ago that we took it down from last Christmas, but alas a good 11 or so months have passed since it was last standing. I’ve talked about my beloved Christmas tree before and now is it’s [...]

Relaxing weekend ahead.

It’s been a quick week especially since I have had quite a few breaks off during my work days, thanks to most of our older students having grammar study classes that don’t require me to teach them. That meant yesterday I only had to teach 3 classes, instead of the usual 6. Score! Of course [...]

Everybody is feeling a little under the weather.

I have to admit I’m pretty happy it’s Friday. What a busy week it’s been, starting with the dramas of my co-worker, Kris, notifying us that he had contracted swine flu. Rob, my other co-worker, also had (has) a bad flu which carries all the tell-tale signs of swine flu, but was not have  a [...]

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 [...]

A quick weekend. Student presentations. Mexican food.

That was probably the quickest weekend yet. On Saturday we had our presentations for the academy at EXCO, Daegu’s convention centre. John, Kris, Miranda, and I met at Dunkin Donuts prior to leaving our area. The young girl working there seemed so surprise to see 4 foreigners all dressed up on Saturday and couldn’t help [...]
