So that means that in between teaching, complaining about the hot weather, and laying semi-comatose under my air-conditioner, I have a lot to do before my contract finishes on September 10th. Visa forms to be completed, an FBI check to arrange (including a rather fruitless trip to the police station) and a place to store my stuff while I'm back home. Oh, and a way to move the stuff I still have stored in Scotland. A small price to pay for such a great year. I have had down days about Korea, I think all expats do, but she's been good to me, and I'm really excited about Busan (and the beaches!) next year. And hopefully a little less time on the subway. :)
A couple of quotes from moody middle-schoolers:
I never start to dance before tomorrow.
I tried studying last year. (I guess it didn't work out...)
And, a 'gloomy' dialogue from Julia in Twinkle class, author of the knitting pirate story. This assignment was very open-ended so I take no credit for any of it!
Characters: Kavin – 15, boy, smart, don't have friend;
Jack – 15, boy, good at sports, don't have father
Setting: At the school. In lunchtime. In cafeteria
Kavin: Today, I am again to eat lunch alone. Why don't I have many friends?
Jack: Hello, Kavin? Why does you eat alone? Can I sit here?
Kavin: Oh, Yes. I always welcom! Friends are hate me. I eat everyday alone.
Jack: That's to bad. It's secret. I don't have my father. He die to some car accident.
Kavin: Really? Oh...
Jack: So, I want to make many friends. They can make me fun. Do you want to me to friend?
Kavin: Yes I want.
Jack: Good! Now we're friend!!
