My first week of teaching is over. How did it go? Well, I'd say it went about as well as could be hoped, and maybe a little better. So far I enjoy teaching.

Wednesday was my busy day; I had six classes in five different levels. It was a long day. Fortunately the last four classes - which were all in a row at the end of the day - went by fast. Today (Thursday) I only had one class, but it was also the worst yet. Six 9 year old boys, two of them enemies, two refusing to do any work... it felt more like a year than forty minutes. We still managed to get through what I wanted to cover and none of them died, so all in all I'd say it was a successful day.

Since tomorrow's New Year's I don't have work. I'm going out with some other foreigners to a formal steak place. I don't like steak, but whatever. I intend to wear my gaudiest, most hideous tie. It will be amazing.

Here are some thoughts about 2009:
For reasons I'd rather not discuss, it wasn't a great year. On the other hand, I graduated cum laude from college, I wrote a[n embarrassingly bad] book, I got a job, and I left the country for the first time.

In 2009 I read 153 books, for a total of 54,012 pages. That's 10 books and 500 pages less than last year, but it's not that bad.

Since I've gotten to Korea I learned Hangul (sort of), how to fail miserably at skiing, how to whistle with my fingers, and how to tie a tie.

I'll give 2009 a C+. Room for improvement.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! ahhh so exciting! What dates will you be here again? I may have access to an inflatable mattress, but no guarantees... I'll try to get everything together in time--I'll need to buy more utensils (I only have 1 of everything haha), another pillow/blanket/etc... I may be able to borrow stuff--yikes. I'll try to be on skype so we can chat about this!
