Oh, Christmas tree!

My co-teacher Sue knew how lonely I was (and she wanted to sneak steal this tree) so we went into the school's storage room and dragged out a box full of Christmas decorations. 

Then we put on Christmas songs and decorated a beautiful tree yesterday afternoon!

It was sooooooooo sweet and sooooo nice! Siiiiiiiiiiiiigh!

Teacher Sue's favorite song is "Last Christmas I gave you my heart" so I pulled it up and we sang and swayed and decorated our little rented tree. Teacher Sue only has two boys who refuse to help her decorate. She usually decorates her tree by herself and sings her holiday songs as a solo artist. 

So we were both able to ease our mutual loneliness just a little bit. 

Through dancing, singing and decorating, we connected on a human level and enjoyed a small piece of joy, even if just for a moment.  

Early morning commute

I took these solemn and moody pics while waiting for my morning bus.

It is so peaceful. The darkness surrounds and somehow comforts me.

Glow in the dark


This tree was almost glowing.

I had to take a pic.

Gorgeous, right?

Grocery store sneakers

Don't walk under the ladder. Yikes!


Different sense of safety here...

Holiday cheer at school (first time 2021)

I finally decorated for Christmas at school.

Being homesick motivated me to attempt to recreate a warm, cozy environment.

Classic textbook errors


I think whoever they paid to edit this chapter was not ecstatic with the assignment.

I usually give my students stickers for finding errors. 

But I had to give out three stickers for one page, for four classes! Ugh!

Eating healthy, staying slim

 I'm trying to loose weight but goodness~ why is it so hard???!!

Why is healthy food so damn nasty?

Found a good photo studio!!


I finally found a good photo studio right downtown!! 

This is after I went to a studio in Suncheon, paid my money for a horrible picture, had to come back the next day, paid for the pick~up of the form and the picture to be sent to the US embassy.  Only to get a call the following week that glasses are not acceptable. So now I have to pay for shipping again.πŸ˜ΆπŸ˜‘πŸ˜πŸ€₯

Thanks Korea.
