December has rushed by faster than a Brian Wilson four seam fastball (WORLD SERIES CHAMPS!)
*Yea, I'm still excited about that one!
Work is a continuous joy and so are my students. Don't get me wrong... there are days that they drive me batty, but that's to be expected. Work really doesn't feel so much like work. I enjoy preparing my lessons... I enjoy helping my students develop a second language. I've said it before, but I know that teaching is what I need to do. Whether it's in Korea, the States, or anywhere else.
My birthday came and went in a flash. I spent it with a few friends. We went to what we thought was going to be a huge German festival, but it turned out to be five tents, a skinny santa, some sausages, and hot wine. Not even saurkraut?! What kind of German festival is that? I had half a mind to start a book burning party. Ok, yes, that joke may be in bad taste...
Nonetheless it was a good time with friends huddled around a propane heater sharing a drink and a powdered sugar sprinkled waffle.
Thailand! Christmas! It's only three days away! I'm looking forward to Bangkok and exploring the city, temples and local fare. But my heart and mind are really set on Phuket and Naki Island! Away from the hustle and bustle I will slip into a blissful state in which I will not want to return from.
December tried to sneak past me... but it didn't go unnoticed. It's been an amazing month. One that will be with me for the rest of my days. The days and nights may be bitterly cold but the snow still melts underneath my every step.
