The Worwick Franklin Way!

Welcome to Worwick Franklin- can you come in to work today?

That may not be exactly what happened, but it’s kind of how my intro to my new school felt.

On Monday, February 20th I went to visit my new school, Worwick Franklin, for the first time.  I met with the director and we talked VERY briefly about my start date and my apartment (I was originally told I would start work on March 5th and I could move into my apartment on Saturday February 25th- both of those pieces of information changed fairly soon after).  I also got to briefly meet the three teachers who would be leaving at the end of the month and the other teacher  who arrived at the end of December and will be staying at the school with me and the other new mystery teachers.  

Taking a Winter Dip at the Deokpo Penguin Swim Festival


On January 7th, I took part in the 8th Annual Geoje Penguin Swim Festival. This festival was just so much fun, and definitely one of my favourite experiences in Korea thus far!

Feeling the Love: A Tale of Two (Korean) Weddings

We were lucky this past spring to have been invited to not one, but two of our co-workers' weddings. Since Shane and I are currently in the midst of planning our own wedding, we thought it neat to be able to see some examples of Korean weddings. Not surprisingly, the weddings we went to were unlike any we've ever been to. We had a lot of fun visiting with everyone and playing our own version of cultural spot the differences. Here's what we saw:
                                                                                                         


Lantern Kaleidoscope for Buddha's Birthday

Buddha's Birthday is not a holiday I normally celebrate. I've still never really celebrated it, although I did have the day off from work. I knew the day was coming weeks in advance, since ordinary city streets gradually became lined with long strings of colorful paper lanterns. It's a beautiful religion I know little about.
