Chunjae Gongju (Genius Princess = ME!)
I discovered the meaning of these Korean words (Chunjae Gongju) and I decided that I would tell one Korean teacher that it was my nickname. She thought it was hillarious (and apparently not believalble...I dont understand!), so she proceeded to tell the entire office. They all laughed, but now they DO refer to me as the Genius Princess.
I don't like Monsoon season in Korea. It's too hot, too rainy, and I don't get to see the sun. Honestly, it's not fun weather to be living in.
Complaining aside...last night we had a dinner for the foreign teachers at both branches of our English Academy. I'm still not sure why we had the dinner, but free BBQ beef...that's a good enough reason for me. It's kinda nice hanging out with the teachers from the other branch too. I get along with them pretty well, so we usually have a lot of fun.
After our dinner, and a pretty inappropriate speech made by one of the teachers at the main branch, Me, Rob, Amy, Jesse, Joseph (my boss), and another Korean dude from the main branch went to a Noribang (Singing Room). This was my second trip to Korea's version of Karaoke. It was a LOT of fun. Turns out that Joseph, my boss, really enjoys singing hardcore slash hard rock slash rap songs from both Korea and the US. Who knew. I mean, it's really funny when I think, where else am I really going to do this with my boss? It's hillarious when I think about it really.
Anyway, we sang tons of songs and spent a few hours there. u singing rooms are different than Karaoke Bars because they are private rooms that you and your friend use and you get to choose any songs you want. There are also waiters that bring you drinks and snacks. So you can really just hang out for a few hours and act like a total dork...which is always fun!
It was a great time and now for basically the rest of the weekend I'm feeling pretty sluggish. From the weather and from my busy schedule. Probably working out five days a week makes my body slightly tired as well.
No super exciting work for me at this point. Although, if you're looking for that, you might wanna check out Kevin's blog. Apparently he's got kids breaking stuff and peeing their pants just about every other day. It's great.
