What a week this has been. Today is Sports Day at my school. Students are outside, in matching outfits by class, running around, hyped up on adrenaline. Right now, I can hear them banging empty, large water bottles together. I hear music. I hear screaming and yelling.
So far, it’s been a pretty good day.
I could have stayed home today, but I decided to come in. Instead, I’ve planned lessons, downloaded a few free e-books, and now I’ll read before leaving with the weekend. Tomorrow I’m going to Seoul for an overnight visit. My goal? To really do nothing, just to relax. Sometimes I just like to get off the island, even if for a bit.
I also know that I have 50 days until July 14, the day I leave Korea. This isn’t an easy thing to think about, as I’ll always love Korea. Time is surely slipping away here overseas.
This is the week that was.
