After 24 years of living in Ohio I decided to up and move to Korea! I am a preschool teacher at PSA. I love working with the kids even though sometimes they drive me insane! They still bring so much happiness into my life.
My intentions are to use this blog to recount my many adventures in Korea and hopefully give my loved ones an insight into my life. But who knows where this might actually go... : )
Edit: I've been in Korea for officially a year... that ish is cray cray... lol
The first week of class is officially over and one day of the 2nd week is finished! Yaaayyy!! So happy to be done with Monday! Update on my new group of monsters… 2 criers last week and once I promised the little boy his mom was coming soon he was total fine and then came the next day like a champ and is now one of my favorites.. I have 10 students it’s awesome to have such a small class going from 18 to 10 is amaze balls! My principal is freaking out because of low enrollment and so she is over analyzing everything and trying to turn the school into a play school… she is freakin crazy the amount of books we have to do definitely prevents that from happening I’m just ready for her to go on maternity leave and leave me alone…
I’m teaching elementary students in the afternoon and they are actually the students from my first class I taught at PSA I’m so happy! I love them and I missed them. I get to see my students from last year on a regular basis and I love and miss them so much.. ㅠㅠ
Going to busy here on out and Im happy and sad all at the same time. The boyfriend won’t be coming on Fridays any more since I’m now going to have my Saturday mornings filled.
I started buying the boyfriend’s birthday gifts! I went to the book store and literally picked up this book twice and decided not to buy it. I then show him the book and he’s like oh that’s a great book I’d like that… face palm! I could have had a great book and surprised him but now he knows one of his gifts… whomp whomp…
I’m waiting on a box from my mom to arrive it’s supposed to come some time this week I’m excited!! There are girl scout cookies inside!!!
Okay this was long and not everything I wanted to sayy….
Oh yea last night I got called 이모님 (emo nim) which is what you called older married women…basically you say it to old women that work in restaurants or shops to make them feel young! I am no where near old enough to have that title thank you to the crappy college students that ruined my night by insinuating I’m old!!! >_<
The Japanese say you have three faces.
The first face, you show to the world. The second face, you show to your close friends, and your family.
The third face, you never show anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are.

I haven’t updated in a while which has become my trend recently… I haven’t done anything exciting so….
Graduation was Wednesday I MCed… my children did fantastically well… but because I MCed I didn’t get to say good bye to them. I will get to see them Tuesday but not really because I’ll have a new group of munchkins to deal with… please let there be no criers…
My coteacher has officially left… I’m going to miss her so much.. she was my coteacher, advisor, friend and became my 언니 (unnie which in Korean means older sister) my new coteacher seems nice…
Hopefully I’ll only have 4 and half months left in Busan and then I can be on my new adventure to Seoul…
Let’s get the new school year started and I hope it’s a good one!! :)
