Here are some photos of my home room Kindergarten students. Don't let them fool you with their cuteness, they can be little stinkers...a majority of the time!

This past Friday night I went over to a coworker's apartment and had a girls night. A bunch of the female teachers and also a couple of the male teacher's korean girlfriends got together and had dinner and drinks. We talked and laughed for hours before meeting up with some of the guys for Karaoke! I had lost my voice from being sick, teaching, and not getting enough sleep so I had to lip sinc and act as a back up dancer whenever we did group numbers, but it was a blast! You rent a room for you and your friends that is all clubbed-out with a disco ball and different colored lights. I can't wait to go back when I have my voice and feel like I'm on American Idol, haha ;)

|Julie bustin' a move - she's gotta be the most entertaining karaoke singer I know|
I got home from the noraebang (karaoke) at about 4am and then I had to go to the school the next morning to introduce myself to prospective parents. I was so exhausted but I still went shopping in Seoul afterwards because the weekends are my only real free time. Then on Sunday I went to an English church service with this married couple I work with and afterwards they had free Korean lessons for the foreigners. I learned the vowels and a few consonants, so enough to jump start my studying of the Korean alphabet. SaeRom bought me some practice books a while ago that I'll get to work on soon.

|Such great food & conversation|
I also put up a Christmas tree today that I bought at the store last week. They had a few different colors but I've been drawn to pink lately, haha. I'm going to put up some Christmas lights in my apartment soon as well. Even a lot of the stores have Christmas lights up now. It's beginning to feel a lot more like the Holidays...

Also, here are a few more photos that SaeRom took from our trip to Seoul last weekend. She takes a lot of the photos I post on here, so I owe most of the awesome photos to her creative genius and awesome camera!
