Haha it blew my mind to discover that Seoul has such a huge population of swing dancers, but it's true!! And now I'm one of them!!
Last weekend I joined a co-worker of mine, Alex, in lessons. She has been dancing for two years, and is absoulutely amazing!! Her class is before mine, so she stayed with me through my class to help me get acquainted and just in case I needed translation. I've dance a lot before, so it's not too hard for me to pick up on new moves, and as this is a beginners class its super easy. I'm going again today in a few hours. After class we went out for some drinks and food with my new class. i was a little hesitant to go, cause I didn't know how many people I'd actually be able to talk to, but Alex went with me for a bit and after a while I was chatting it up with lots of different people. Can't wait to go back tonight!
This week was super crazy. We had two days of school (really only one day of kindergarten!). On Tuesday we had a "flea market" at school, where the kids brought in old toys and books they didnt need, then they were able to buy new things. It was fun. Then Wednesday was children's day, so no school!! On Tuesday we went out for some Mexican food, and ended up staying out until the wee hours of the morning! We met some fun korean people around our age and danced quite a bit.
Wednesday we had a party at a couple's house here, they have a huge balcony, so we all brought some food and drank beer in the sun all day. It was great! One of the girls made some awesome fajitas...chicken, veggies, and beans and even tortillas!! It was a great way to spend the day off of work!
Thursday morning I called mom's cell cause they were going out to eat to hear the results of Gail's untrasound!! For those of you who don't know, it's a GIRL!! Can't wait to go home and meet my first niece! I was super excited. A boy would have been great too!!
Then we were back to school for two more days, and now its the weekend again!! I wish every week were like this! Cleaned my ENTIRE apartment today. Man it needed it!! I've been so busy that I haven't cleaned much in a long time. I don't know what it is here, but dust accumulates so easily!! Since we have fake hardwood floors it's so obvious, and I spent a long time trying to vacuum up all the dust bunnies! Oh well, now it looks great.
Tomorrow I'm going to church...we're going into a part of Seoul where lots of Filipinos gather on Sundays to buy Filipino food. We were spose to go last week but SOMEONE was out too late the night before and didn't make it. Luckily they postponed it for me...er, I mean her! Haha.
I think my friends and I have decided to take our summer trip to Thailand afterall. The weather during the summer there seems to be better than in the Philippines, from some of the research I've done, and we just can't pass up cheap Thai food!! Hopefully it will work out.
Arite well I hope everyone has a great weekend! The weather has been amazing on the weekends here...it rains one or two days during the week, but the weekends are sunny and 70's!! It's great. Love you all!
