I have six calendar days of the semester remaining and because of finals at school, I’m primarily deskwarming, which is the fine art of sitting at a desk and fiddling on the computer. Granted, I’ve been lesson-planning, but a lot of deskwarming involves reading blogs, writing blogs, and staring at the Facebook. It’s been fast and great semester. I’ve loved (almost) every minute of it and I wouldn’t change my Korea experience for the world. It’s hard to believe that it’s almost half over. Honestly, with the semester coming to a fast close, it seems as if I have nothing to blog about except lists. With that being said, I present kind readers with a list of minutiae.
- I wanted to show my students all of the great landmarks of the United States, so in a YouTube video, I entered “best in America.” The search result? Charlie Daniels. Good suggestion, YouTube.
- I don’t think Koreans know what Milky Way candy bars are. That’s a crying shame that I will fix. Mark my words.
- My host mom is almost finished knitting me a magenta-pink scarf.
- I bought a pair of mittens today.
- I mailed two letters today.
- I bought three legal pads for writing letters.
- My host mom is making pasta.
- I’ve eaten my body weight in oranges and kiwi.
- Seogwipo City has some flashy Christmas decorations. Like, flashing Cross with a saxophone-playing Santa at the bottom.
- One of my best memories of Korea is sitting in the family room by the new wood stove.
- I’m planning my three-day winter camp. We’re probably going to make some type of no-bake desert.
What little things are you celebrating today?
