Almost Time to Go… “7 days….”

In 7 days I will be in JeonJu at the University ready to start Day 1 of orientation. But before I can do that I have to finish my time here. I had a Bye-Bye Party this weekend that was so much fun. Lots of friends and family came and I felt so special! Sounds corny, but it felt really good.

Chocolate cupcakes with raspberry chocolate ganache filling and cream cheese raspberry frosting. yummy!

Red Velvet cake with cream cheese frosting. Yumm!

Jeff, baby Ella and I!! Her shirt says "Someone in South Korea loves me!"

After the ByeBye Party reality set in and I told myself that I needed to look to the future some more. I got excited by looking at this: The schedule for the orientation!

Day 1 will consist of a campus tour, opening ceremony about EPIK life and a welcoming dinner!

Day 2 will have the medical check up (sad) and Korean History classes. Accompanied by Korean movies at night, but not until after Korean language classes.

Day 3 has classes about teaching and how to be a successful communicator. Again, more Korean language then movies.

Day 4– I think we go somewhere because it just says that we are going to have “Korean Cultural Experiences.” o0o lala.

Day 5 will have more about teaching, co-teaching, differentiation, lesson planning and classroom management classes. Oh wait! Korean movies at night haha.

Day 6 is a duplicate of Day5.

Day 7 has a mini lesson demonstration and meeting with supervisors and a farewell dinner before everyone leaves to their perspective place in the country.

Day 8 will consist of a closing ceremony and lunch then we will go to where we are living! ahh!!!

Now to the present- my packing.

My luggage is beginning to fill up with only one PACKMAX in it...uhoh...this is going to be rough.

To prepare myself for the language in Korea, Lana showed me this book that had a bunch of useful phrases. I can walk away with her teaching me how to say “yes” in Korean. This will help me a LOT!!! Thank you! Now…I must conquer more by finishing my pre-orientation online for EPIK. 20 lessons hooray…
