Actual Update!

It's quite sad that I actually have to look at my calendar to figure out what I've been doing since November 26th... hahaha!

Well on the 27th, I had Thanksgiving with Kelsey at her apartment.  It was really delicious!  Kelsey made everything and we watched movies and just hung out.

November ended and we started up December.  I love Christmas so December was all about getting ready for Christmas.  I decorated my classroom and got plans ready to have fun!  Kelsey and I saw Swan Lake on the 11th.  I really enjoyed it.  It was my first time to see a ballet and it was a good one!  Around this time, I also found out that I would be finishing my contract earlier than expected and so I've been looking for a new job.  Thankfully it's not like my last job and things aren't bad with my school.  I love my school and I look forward to finishing up but since I'm finishing up at a strange time to be looking for jobs, they asked me if I wanted to finish early.  It's really nice of them and I appreciate them for doing that.

So the last few weeks have been about getting all my ducks in a row and getting ready to start thinking about moving again.

On the 19th, I was super busy.  I met up with my friend for a vegan lunch buffet in Seolleung and then ran all the way to Hyehwa for some shopping.  Later on, I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 with Kelsey.  It was really good and I can't wait for the 2nd one to finally come out!!

On the 24th, I was supposed to see The Nutcracker Ballet but unfortunately I was really sick and couldn't even think about trying to sit without coughing, sneezing, or sniffling.  So I stayed home to recover before heading to Jeju on the 25th.

The big thing of the year is heading to Jeju for Christmas day and the 26th.  It was such a fun trip!  We started off, meeting our group at the airport.  We got tickets and a travel pack through AdventureKorea.com.  So check it out if you want travel ideas!  After getting on the 1 hour flight to Jeju, we got on a bus and started off with an all-you-can eat pork lunch.  Afterwards we headed to our first stop of the day.  We went to the Trick Art Museum.  They had lots of cool paintings and illusion art around so you could just play for as long as you wanted.  Outside they had lots of fun things to do as well.  After that, we headed to ride horses.  This is the first time I've ridden a horse in my adult life.  Yes, I'm from Texas but we don't just ride horses whenever we want.  haha!  So riding a horse was a little scary for me.  haha and funny!  I had fun overall though!

After the horses, we headed to Sunrise Peak.  At this point, I'm still sick and didn't want to risk running up the side of a mountain... it just was not happening!  So we rested at a GS25 and talked with an ahjussi for a bit.  he was super nice.  Once everyone got the chance to go up and down the mountain, we got back on the bus and headed to our hotel to rest and get some dinner.  After getting settled, we had a Christmas dinner with turkey and kimchi side dishes.  LOL!  After dinner, we played a huge game of White Elephant gift exchanging.  It was quite interesting!!  Then there was karoake and fun to be had by all!

Kelsey and I headed back to rest up for the next day of events.  Day 2:  We did many more things.  Started out with breakfast and heading out to see the Chinese Acrobats show.  It was actually really fun and interesting!  and at one point, they scared you and everyone in the audience flipped out.  hahaha!  After the show, we headed to the O'sulloc tea museum.  We walked around after the snow settled a little and took some pictures!  After our fun here, we headed to a Hallim Forest to check out the caves and garden.  It was definitely a good relaxing end to the day before heading back to the airport to wait forever for a flight back to Seoul.

This week, I've been on vacation and havent done much.  I've done an interview, visited friends at work, and set Kelsey off to America.  She'll hopefully be back soon as I'll miss her tons!

whelp... i better be off... time to clean my apartment... tomorrow I'm going back to school and although there wasn't much to do this week, I let my apartment go into shambles... hahaha!!

thanx for reading and I hope I'll get back on track soon!!
