Whittling away the week

Micah and I just got back from playing tour guide in Seoul.  Our friend Jamie flew in (unfortunately only for the weekend) to visit us and we promised to make it time well-spent.  I’ll have to write more about that visit later once I get the pictures from Jamie.  Just know that we had a FANTASTIC time exploring the city, trying to stay warm, and trying to digest as much Korean food as possible.

In the meantime, Micah and I are both back to school this week.  However, we are both pretty much doing little to nothing.  I usually don’t know until the morning of, if I’ll be teaching any classes that day.  And even then, I’m finding my classes getting cancelled last minute (usually after waiting 10 minutes in an empty classroom, that means class is cancelled.  What a nice warning system huh?). Micah is basically in the same boat – his first day back and zero to do.  Five more days, five more days….

Don’t be confused.  I’m not complaining.  While I may be dying of boredom at times…this free time has allowed me to travel plan to my hearts content.  I have a TON of good food places picked out for our Aussie trip, itinerary all typed up, details all documented.  I’m even starting to think about where to go for our (dates unknown) summer vacation.  🙂

Besides…the few classes I have taught recently are absolute madness.  The students have little NO desire to be in school (they just got back from five weeks of winter vacation and are soon to be on two weeks of spring vacation).  And guaranteed, none of my students have spoken a lick of English in their time off – so when I see them at school, their English vocab has since been reduced slashed to “Hello teacher” and “Goodbye teacher.”  How proud that makes me feel. :-)  Five more days, five more days…
