It’s actually Saturday here in Korea but still Friday in the states, so I think I’m OK.
Let’s get started on the Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs.
This little munchkin has been such a bundle of joy in my life the past week. I just love her! I get to have her for 4 more weeks before she stays with a friend while I’m in Bali. Then her mom, my friend, will come to Daejeon to pick her up.
I can’t wait to go home to my own dogs! I’m going to have a friend video our reunion….just like those adorable videos on YouTube.
This past week was final exams. I get to read the English test to my 2 favorite girls, Mina and Seora, who are in high school. Both are very low, and one barely knows what is going on. This is how she takes her test.
I read the question, she chooses which number is the answer (there are 5 possible answers with 5 stamps), I help her ink up and then guide her hand to the right spot on her test.
I am officially counting down now. Even though last week was final exams, I still have 1 1/2 more weeks of school. Yeah. It doesn’t make sense to me either. Then I have 2 weeks of summer camp. Then BALI. Then 5 more days in Korea, including 3 days of teaching. Then I fly home!!!!!
I watched a National Geographic documentary on North Korea with Lisa Ling and am speechless that a place so close to South Korea is vastly different. They have been completely brainwashed. Children are dying from malnutrition, adults are blind from horrible healthcare, and prison camps are in full bloom which are very similar to concentration camps (children fighting over one corn kernel found in cow dung), and yet they still bow down and worship their “dear leader”. So sad. They just don’t know how the rest of the world lives. I was amazed and shocked.
Worshipping the “dear leader”. Makes me sick to my stomach.
If you have the time, please watch it. It will open your eyes.
Hope your week was fantabulous!
