My First Day of Teaching in Jeonju, Korea


In this video I talk about my first day of teaching. I didn't feel prepared at all but it's one of those things that you just have to get over with. In the video I make it seem like everything is rainbow and butterflies now. But the reality's not. There's still difficult parts and somedays I don't feel like teaching at all. 

But once I'm in the classroom and I see the kids laugh, something melts within me. If i was angry with them before class, it all goes away. Sure they annoy me sometimes and I have to yell at them to keep them in line but most of the time we get along pretty well. Time goes by fast as we are all laughing and talking to each other. There's a million funny stories I can tell about teaching. I need to make some story time videos. They teach me bad words and say the funniest things.

I am so behind on my blog posts. I'm still recovering from my LASIK surgery but I think I can make a video soon with sun glasses on haha. I'm not allowed to wear makeup for 4 weeks and I don't want you guys to see me makeupless...because if I look back on that video I'll feel like deleting it. 

Hope everyone is having a good day. If you are going to be teaching soon, I hope this video inspires you. It'll all be ok! remember it'll all be fine :)

Beautiful Busan Lantern Festival! And Walking Around Nampo Dong

Hello! I'm actually on time with this blog post :)

May 14 is Buddha's Birthday and the day Selina came over from Fukuoka by ferry. We met up in Busan after I pulled an all-nighter (probably only the 2nd one in my life). The previous night, Anna and I went to Tori's house and stayed until 5am. Around 7:30am I left to get on a bus to Busan so I pretty much didn't sleep. I felt like crap.

My birthday was on April 24th. It was a beautiful Sunday that was hot enough to wear a t-shirt and skirt but not too hot where I would be sweating like a pig. I'm so blessed to have such great weather on my birthday. I am also blessed to have such great friends celebrate with me.
