It’s May? NO WAY! I can’t believe that summer is almost over. Except that while teaching in Korea, I won’t actually get a summer this year. I will only get 8 days off. It’s heartbreaking, I know. However, I do plan on going somewhere for my vacation. I’m thinking Bali. What do you think?
Since it’s the beginning of a new month, I’m linking up with Farley at Oh Boy 3rd Grade for her awesome monthly Currently.
ME! I know, right? I was giddy with excitement! I might have even jumped up in my chair when I found out. Thanks so much Farley!! I’m honored!
So let’s get it started!
Listening: I have A LOT of down time at work aka desk warming (basically where your butt sits in your chair at your desk for hours). So I watch a lot of Netflix. I have Netflix up on my desktop computer while I work on stuff for Teachers Pay Teachers on my Mac. It’s the perfect set up really. I have discovered some new favorite TV shows….The Office, which led to Parks and Recreation (I love it I think even more than The Office), and now I’m watching The Fosters. Since I plan on becoming a foster mom when I come home, this TV show peaked my interest. It’s really very good. There’s only 1 season on Netflix, so I’ll have to quickly choose another TV show to watch afterwards. Any suggestions?
Loving: In Korea, we have a lot of random school holidays. Yesterday was Labor Day. Regular teachers had to work, but EPIK (English Program in Korea) teachers did not. So 3 friends and I went to the amusement park here in Daejeon, O World. It was so much fun. Then we went shopping at my favorite spot. All in all an excellent holiday. I also have 2 holidays on Monday and Tuesday for Children’s Day (no idea) and Buddha’s birthday.
Thinking: My year is 2/3 of the way done! I can’t believe it. I have less than 4 months until I come home in August. It has been a glorious experience!
Wanting: I miss good old-fashioned Southern comfort food so much. And Mexican food. And Italian food. And pretty much every other kind of food from America. I’m not a huge fan of Korean food. Yes, I’ve already started making my list (which is getting rather long) of food I MUST eat when I come home.
Needing: Since I’m coming home in August, I need to find a teaching job for next year. I am applying at several districts in my area. My resume is all ready and updated. But the process of filling out job applications is just so tedious, ya know? Where did you go to high school? Have you been convicted of a felony? What are your references? What is your educational philosophy? Do you even know YOUR educational philosophy? It’s not like I have it hanging up at my house, framed for the world to see.
