Traffic Center

Went to the traffic center to teach the kids about traffic safety!

BTW 119 is the emergency number for an ambulance or the fire station... and 112 is for the police station... just a fact that maybe you should know if you're in korea!

Coex Aquarium

Here are pictures from the Coex Aquarium...

1 year!

So LAST Thursday was my 1 year in Korea!  WOOT!  Now I can say I've been here for a year!  I plan to stay so much longer but it's nice not to be so new!  ^^  I had dinner with my friend/coworker and her friend as a mini-celebration!  hehe!!

I haven't done too much lately, just working and saving money!

The week before I went with my kindergarten to a traffic center to teach the kids about traffic safety... which is great since my accident... haha!

BUT last weekend I went to the Coex Aquarium and had a great time!  Hopefully I can upload pictures soon... once I sift through them all!

Then Last Friday, Kelsey and I went out for dinner in Nowon and hoped to watch Avatar: The Last Airbender, but unfortunately it was sold out... I guess next time... hopefully!

This week, I've only had to work 2 days 2 classes each on Monday and Wednesday... So yesterday I had off.  I met up with Kelsey and another friend in Itaewon to do some shopping and eat at Gecko's in Itaewon... so yummy!!  Then headed out to Myeongdong for more shopping.  I hadn't been to Itaewon and Myeongdong since before my accident in February so it was definitely interesting to see these places again.  I, also, randomly fell upon a noraebang that I've been looking for since arriving.  It's called Every Sing by SM Entertainment and it's supposed to be pretty awesome!  I found it in Myeongdong, so I hope to be able to go there soon!  After shopping, we got a drink at a random bar that was opened at 6 in the afternoon, then all headed home.

Today, I had work and just rested for the day.  Tomorrow, I'm heading out to a swimming pool at Ttukseom with a friend.  I'm so excited!  I havent been to a swimming since first arriving in Korea.  I'll be sure to take pics!  I dont really have any plans for the week but rest and not spend much money!  On Friday, I may go with Kelsey to a free park with a lot of awesome things in Ilsan!

And then in August, we have scheduled to go to a concert... SMTown 2010 concert that will include: SuperJunior, SNSD (Girl's Generation), and Shinee!  I'm so excited!!!!

and i found out this week that I won't go home in December after all (tickets are super expensive!)... but I will go home a lot earlier!  I'll be going home in September around Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving-type holiday) and around my birthday!  I'm excited and can't wait to make it real by buying tickets!  ^^

Can't wait to add pictures soon!!  Sorry I'm so boring lately but hopefully soon I can have more exciting posts!!  Parks, Pools, Noraebangs, Concerts, etc!!

4th of July

Pictures Galore: weekend at Insadong and River

Weekend Fun.

So we didn't go to Everland again BUT K and I had some fun around Seoul.

Friday night, we met up to go to Hyehwa and just eat Subway and visit the Flair.

Saturday we met up and went to Jonggak to the bookstore.  After visiting Bandi and Luni's bookstore at exit 3-1.  We headed out to Insadong, we walked around (A LOT!) and visit the mall there.  (i need to upload pics next!)  after that, we decided to eat some traditional food in Insadong.  We ate some ssamgyapsal (thick bacon ;]) and beef with some yummy sides.  After eating, we headed out to have some tea and dessert at the traditional tea house there in Insadong.  Afterwards we tried to walk to the Cheongyecheon but got a bit lost... we took a taxi to the river and proceeded to walk around.  we jumped onto a horse and buggy because they looked so fun!  we took pictures and threw our tired feet into the river.

afterwards we took the bus as close to our next destination as possible and took the subway the rest of the way to nowon.  after walking a bit more to find my bus stop, we split ways at around 12pm... haha and slept well that night too.

the next day, i slept for most of the day and met up with K in Nowon to do some sparklers for the 4th of July celebrations.  After eating dinner, we headed to a park nearby and set off some sparklers!  SO FUN!!!!

and now the week has started again... this weekend there isn't much plan... just resting and meeting up with some friends.

pics will come later tonight when i get home!
