On Sunday we tried to go to a place near GNU, but they stopped serving at 9, then a whole bunch of other places were also closed/closing so we ended up going to a soup place that none of us had been to. It was actually really good. We ordered 2 kinds of soup - kimchi jigae, which is a spicy soup with tofu and kimchi and then a chicken soup with some potatoes and carrots in it, which was also spicy. Both were very good though. One cool feature of this restaurant is the chairs. They are barrels with a pad on top, but you put your bags, coats etc. inside the barrel while you're eating. This idea is genius because my coat always ends up at least partially on the floor.

|Guess what this is a bag for...|

After glasses shopping (which took maybe 30-45 minutes from when I walked in to when I walked out with both pairs in hand), Liezle and I went to lunch. Then we went to the pharmacy because her throat is feeling sore and she doesn't want to ride home on the plane sick. She had to go into work early, so I then went to the bank and paid some bills, then went to a stationary store and got an envelope I needed, some random cards and these stickers.
|Guess who's getting these??|
Then I went to work early where I finished a stack of essays, graded a set of tests and wrote and copied 3 more sets of tests on top of my regular lesson plans. During my break I also told my boss about a way for kids to print something and he called me a genius - I am so going to miss working here. I also got this email from my recruiter:
BTW Mr Jung has been very happy with your work. He says you are the best teacher that W school has had. He wanted to re-sign with you, but he understands you have your life in America
After work I went grocery shopping with Caroline, made dinner and am about to do the dishes (mainly because Liezle's shower is broken and she's using mine tomorrow and I don't want her to see that I live like a frat boy). So, it's been a good day. Tomorrow is going to be another busy one - bible study in the morning, lunch with Liezle and Cindy, downtown errands/shopping then work and possibly dinner and some cleaning (although probably not if I'm being realistic).
