My lunch today. No meat just white rice, kim(seaweed), and pickled radish. The lunch ladies wouldn’t even give me the chicken or curry because they know what’s up. #thestruggle #allforGod #lent #mysacrifice #nomeat #schoollunch #yeongwolelementary #100daysofhappiness #100happydays #day3
Long overdue ramblings by yours truly.
Ok so since my last post I’ve traveled to Malaysia solo, applied and was admitted to graduate school for my Masters in Education, started teaching 4th grade solo this year (no CT just little ol’ me!)…but the biggest news is that I’ve gotten a new Korean Co-Teacher at my school (it’s not as exciting as it sounds haha). I won’t go into too much detail because I mostly am going to just talk about Malaysia so maybe I’ll write another update on that in a few weeks when I get a real feel for my new CT. I will say this though…so far he is a HE versus my previous CT who was a she. He’s actually an old 6th grade teacher from this past year. He also has pretty decent English and he loves the Dodgers. Need I say more? Haha but seriously I’ll wait until another post so I can go into detail.
So now here goes my attempt at giving a quick recap on my Malaysian Adventure! First of all…wow! Malaysia was great! The people, the food, the places…all of it were pretty impressive. It was my first time traveling for a longer period than 3 days all alone and it was pretty cool. One of my friends from Korea actually ended up going to Kuala Lumpur too and we made plans to stay at the same hostel and did some day trips together around with our hostel. The hostel I stayed at was AMAZING! If you are ever in KL you must stay at Reggae Mansion…but that’s if you like to party. It’s a party hostel and my room was right underneath the rooftop bar so it was annoying the first night because I was exhausted and had to listen to people jumping and shouting at 3-4-5am while coming down the stairs into the rooms drunk as heck. Other than that it was super nice. The room I stayed in had about 12 people but the setup of the room was the best part. Every person had his or her own little cubicle room. So in the little box was a shelf, mirror, outlet, light, window, and a curtain so you could hide yourself from everyone. I loved the privacy and the fact that I could do what I wanted when I wanted in secrecy lol. Oh I also stayed in a mixed dorm room but it was cool because most of the time no one was around which kind of sucked but I did meet a cool guy from Canada…they’re always Canadian, Australian, or European…sheesh haha Americans need to travel more!
My Free Talking class is sometimes a lot to handle but with smiles like these why stress? #yeongwolelementary #sixthgrade #freetalking #afterschoolclass #theywantedtotakeaselfie #selca #100daysofhappiness #100happydays
