well, as you know I have resigned but what I haven't told you is that the High School have allowed me to predate my resignation letter so I can return to NZ sooner. They understand I am returning for parental reasons. So I leave on Wednesday, will be in NZ by Thursday and hopefully Nelson by Friday or Saturday. Eeek it's all happening so fast.
My internet has been disconnected so I have to sneak into the English Room to use it so please forgive me if I'm slow at reading blogs, commenting and replying to msgs. Also youtube is barred from the school network and there is no sound in this pc.
I came into school yesterday (Saturday) to say goodbye to my students and some of my teachers (and to pay final bills - yikes). I really don't like goodbyes, sometimes it's easier to just leave. I am an emotional person and I found yesterday very hard. I nearly made it through all my classes without tearing up. I had to break for a bit before going into the last one as I nearly lost it. gah, I'm such a sap. I go back tomorrow (Monday) because the Principal is taking me (and my co-teacher) out to lunch. This is an honour as he did not do it with the other native english speaking teachers.
On a good note - WOOT!!! NZ finally is on the medal table, I knew it would be for rowing - thank you to the Evers-Swindell sisters. I had told my students that our strengths were rowing and athletics (and sailing and equestrian). So I'm relieved that we have won in some of those fields.
Anyhuu I'm off to Bugok this morning, apparently it' has the hottest hot springs in South Korea and as it is only 15kms down the road I thought I should go before heading home. I hope you are all enjoying the weekend!
UPDATE: went to Bugok and bought togs, lol but didn't do the hot springs thing, it's too muggy and many of my students work at Bugok Hawaii which kinda puts me off a little (and I'm not used to the nekkid in front of lots of people thing either) so I came home. Also 78' is just too hot, geez I set the hot water at home to 65' (as recommended by Plunket (a child welfare org).
