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.
