Half Way Marker!
My school ended much later than all my friends, but I can now say that I have officially completed my first semester and winter camp! So it's only appropriate to say:
It was a little hard to be at school while all my friends were off in beautiful places and I was stuck in cold and not-snowy Gwangju. My coteacher told me I didn't have to come to school because in our contract it technically says we can be done teaching on December 23rd. However, because I never read the contract, I didn't know that until she told me so I didn't make any plans. And when she told me, all of my friends who weren't teaching had left the country. So I just went to school, but I'm glad I got more time with my students.

Now that all my teaching responsibilities are done, I'm getting ready for my winter break traveling. Here's a preview: sand, beer, hiking, hot springs. What more can you ask for?
