February turned out to be such a fantastic month. So much so that I ended up getting quite sick at the end/beginning of March and was out for abut 5 days. One of the best things was that the weather suddenly turned from freezing cold to almost warm.
October turned about to be a great month in Daegu. There was so much to do, and the temperatures allowed for a range of activities. For example, we did a lot of partying!
A lot of people left my school during October and November, so there were a lot of occasions for celebrations.
My last month in Korea! We said a lot of goodbyes, drank a few drinks, tried to eat as much Korean food as humanly possible and generally tried to fit in all the things a good procrastinator always leaves to the very end. July is when summer really starts to kick in, and the Koreans take to the outdoors to cool off.
Of course this month has been another hectic, fun filled one. One were
I spent too much money, but also one that ended up with an inordinate
amount of photos being posted to Facebook.
As most people are aware, February 14th was Valentines Day. Before I explain about the Korean Valentines traditions, I’d like to make a comment. Being single on Valentines Day is THE BEST! You get to spend the whole day (if it happens to fall on a Saturday as it did this year) having fun with your girlfriends! This Valentines we went shopping for pretty things, spoiled ourselves with High Tea, went to a messy burger joint and ate too many chilli fries, then danced the night away in at an all-you-can-drink cocktail bar before singing our hearts out at Karaoke and walking home at 5am.
Everyday I daydream about diving. It’s an obsession with me. I spend countless hours reading online blogs on diving (good thing I don’t have a job anymore!), searching for the best (cheapest) places to get certified – if the place has amazing beaches that doesn’t hurt either.
