It is time to go on a great, once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Before you leave, though, you must make sure to say goodbye to old friends, old circumstances, and old habits that once were familiar. This can be a beautiful thing! Full of much optimism about your new and better life, and much nostalgia about all the great things of the past that got you to where you are today.
The last day of school before break. Only 4 more months before I return home and I already know that will come way sooner than I want and faster than I expect. So now is my time to live it up and enjoy every second I spend here even if that involves spending a few days hanging out at home not doing much at all.
I am one month into my winter vacation and I have one month left. I have gotten a lot of reading done and I have been able to do a lot of exploring in Seoul.
This last month has consisted a lot of just hanging around and going to a few Rotary events, Ski trips and meeting me new family members.
On New Years Eve I got my first chance of the year to go skiing at a small ski resort close to my host uncle's house. I had a great time skiing with my host cousin for a few hours. For those of you back home that ski, this ski hill had more vertical than Welch but as many runs as Buck Hill.
We ended up spending most of the day on one run. I got my first experience skiing in rental gear as well. I got to wear some nice Rossignol boots that are older than I am and some skis that were in pretty rough shape. Surprisingly though, the skis and boots held up pretty well.
In my last post, I mentioned that the new year was a pretty big holiday but I was wrong. It is actually the Solar New Year that is the big holiday here which is in a few weeks.
So brining in the new year was very low key, just sitting around the table talking for a while then heading to bed pretty early. I think the Solar New Year will be much bigger and with a lot more family.
We will be heading back to the same small town for the Solar New year that we spent New Year's at. I look forward to meeting more cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents!
My host cousin SangWook. A day of skiing! Most of the time was spent listening to speakers all in Koreanworking in groups to create a dance performance and playing team-building games. It was a great time.
All of us exchange girls decided to cram into one room together, so that put about fourteen girls in one room about the size a regular hotel room but all sleeping on the floor the traditional Korean way. It was a great three days and very exhausting. He spent a year of middle school in England and now attends an international middle school here in Korea.
I had another great experience getting to ski for three days! The only downside was the first day of skiing I was on skis that were a little too short and had poles that were too short as well The next two days were much better and I could actually make some turns through the piles that built up throughout the day.
Even though this ski resort was pretty small, the weekend was VERY busy. Our trip was originally meant to be just two days but we came to the conclusion that another half day of skiing would be worth it to have some runs to ourselves without the crazy mass of people from the weekend.
Monday was a great day of skiing, although it was white-out conditions it was great to ski on some fresh snow. I spent that half day skiing by myself while my English teacher and her son took a snowboarding lesson.
By the end of the day all of my clothes were soaking wet and frozen but it was so fun!! Those three days of skiing definitely showed me how out of shape I am I miss the days when I had coaches telling me to train and get in shape for the ski season. I was supposed to go on another ski trip with my host mother's church a few days later but I couldn't find the energy to go skiing again that soon.
That, and I was still fighting a pretty nasty cold that I picked up the week before. Since then I haven't been up to a whole lot. I have gone to Seoul a few times to see some things I haven't gotten a chance to see like looking at Seoul from the top of Namsan Tower and spending time in Jonggak helping my host cousin work on his English.
Of course I am missing things from home like Hogan Brothers and my car But I know those things will still be there when I return in four months so the homesickness isn't too bad. One thing that is a big change here is the amount of independence I don't have.Our Lifetime Adventures curriculum is a thematic curriculum, which focuses on developing emergent skills through student interactions in the environment and .
