Today, we got snacks at my winter camp. Yup, the education office provided us with wagon wheels (they call them choco pies here?), oranges, and juice boxes! It felt like I was in kindergarten, I loved it!
We did drama today, and storytelling. Apparently, I'm a good storyteller... after I finished reading the books to the kids, they all applauded me, one even shouted ENCORE! It was kind of fun. I then made them read the stories from our textbook in groups, and then had each group come to the front and tell us the story they chose... it worked out better than I had imagined it would.
I tried my first ever box of Korean hair dye today. I went to E-Mart after camp, and asked the lady a bunch of questions in choppy English, accented with pointing, to try to get her to understand what I was asking. Luckily, I ran into my friend Jeff and his daughter, both of whom can read and speak Korean. So, Jeff's daughter helped figure out my hair dye... haha. It looked really red on the box, so I was hoping that the blonde parts under the black in my hair would turn out red red, and the black would stay black. the black did stay black, but the blonde turned out orange. Also, I apparently have too much hair for just one box of dye now, so there's blonde in with my orange. Go me. I don't even want to imagine what the back looks like. Maybe I'll buy another box tomorrow, and try again. I guess it's too much to ask for the hair dye here to be anything close to the color on the box. Damn my non-Korean hair!!!! DAMNNNNN YOUUUUUU!!!!!!
Now, for the weather today. I know weather is a really boring topic, but, seriously, we had it all today.
This morning, I was awoken fifteen minutes early (OHHHH CRUEL FATESSS!!!) by thunder. Yes, thunder. I thought it was a train crash until I realized the sound was coming from the sky. It rained for a bit, and let up before I left for school. Then, it was sunny, and nice, and relatively warm. While teaching, the sky turned ominous black, and we got a huge downpour of rain. It was then sunny but insanely windy for a few hours. I left school and went to E-Mart, and, while I was talking to Will and Jeff and Jeff's daughter, it started flipping snowing! Lots and lots and lots of snow, in huge flakes! They all melted as soon as they hit the ground of course, creating a slushy mess. The snow let up, and it was calm for a few minutes before slush started falling from the sky... and now it's dark and I don't feel like checking the weather. Seriously, we had everything today. Ridiculous.
Anyways, I'm tired and I have to teach art tomorrow, so I am going to head to bed.
Toodles, all! <3
