this is me

좋은 날

I'm happy right now because I've spent the last 40+ minutes thinking only in Korean. No English.
지금 저는 아주 행복하고 있어요. 왜냐하면 40분 동안 한국어로 생각했어요. 영어로 생각을 안 했어요.

Today I taught a group of Pathfinders (boy scouts/girl scouts) about airplanes. It was kind of silly but not too difficult.
오늘 학생 그룹을 비행기에 대해서 가르쳤어요. 조금 어리석은 수업이었지만 힘들었지 않아요.

After that Megan and I went to the Suwan-jigu Lotte Outlet to buy a present for Vanessa's birthday shower. Then we ate at an Italian restaurant which had a nice atmosphere and good food. Then I hung out with friends in Pungam-dong.
그 후에 바네사 아기 파티에 선물을 사려고 메간하고 수완지구 롯데아웃렛에서 갔어요. 그 다음에 저와 메간은 좋은 분위기 있는 이탈리아 식당에서 먹었어요. 음식이 맛있었어요. 후에 풍암동에서 친구하고 놀고 이야기했어요.

그럼... 피곤해서 자고 싶어요. 잘자!

Teaching gives me good stories

I was a bit tired/giddy last night, so here's a story I forgot to mention.

While I was doing the presentation on airplanes, the Korean teacher kept rearranging the sound system, and the computer, and the microphone, and the podium. It was interfering with my ability to present.

After I finished up and the kids were putting together their model airplanes, Pearl calls me aside. Pearl is an 11 year old with a big personality. "Teacher Adam, you don't like Teacher [--]," she whispered.

"Why do you say that?" I asked her as I glued a wing onto her plane.

"Because you rolled your eyes when he was messing around with the computer," she said.

I coughed. "Yes, I did."

"Why did you do that?"

I didn't know what to say, so I said the truth. "Because I'm a very bad person," I said, and I quickly fled to help another student.
