The rest of my classes are great also - with the exception of the 6 year old Supsok kids. Their progress has been so minimal and I really dislike teaching them. But there's not much I can do about that except keep try to stay positive and cheerful when that's not what I am feeling at all. But maybe with time it will get better...and really, no job is perfect. So here are some fun things I've done this month.
One of the teachers from my school, Brian, introduced the new teachers to his friend Seowoo (aka Steven). It's great to finally have a Korean friend because I do feel like there is generally a big divide between foreigners and Koreans. The first thing we did together was the Cherry Blossom Festival, which was really beautiful.

At the beginning of May we had a long weekend, it was Children's Day. So the day before that was Green Day (made up by our school)...which was just a day of fun activities for the kids. Which was also perfect for us because it meant we didn't have to teach!

I found this wig at the market/shopping area below the Express Bus Terminal in Seoul and fell in love with it. I wore it for most of the day on Saturday and so many Koreans wanted to take a picture with me, haha . I had fun :)
But yeah, I love Korea!!!
