Life should not only be lived, it should be celebrated.
It was not an eventful day today. I went to the gym – leg day! – early in the morning before sauntering in to work nearly an hour early, but I didn’t do much. I only submitted one blog. For the rest of the time, I listened to music, read and reviewed my manuscript, and made flashcards to practice Korean. My mentor stopped by to check on me too. She recommended that I go to Everland (an amusement park near Caribbean Bay) after I asked her where I could by swimsuits.
One thing caught my eye at my workplace, though. There are benches in the corner on the first floor where students can take naps or do homework. I thought that was pretty cool.
It rained all day today, so hard I wonder what made the sky cry. My pants were soaked to the knees by the time I returned to the hotel. And not even two minutes inside, my friend asked me to go to the gym with her. So I did, again. But I only stretched this time.
For dinner, I went out with 5 other people to an all you can eat Korean BBQ. I don’t eat much, so I waste money at restaurants like this. Still, the meat was delicious (and tough). Isn’t it great to pay to cook your own food and be kicked out out if you stay more than 2 or 3 hours?
Things started getting livelier around 9 pm. A bunch of us gathered in one room to celebrated another friend’s birthday. It was really fun, and we were really rowdy. We were so loud, the hotel manager came up and told us to quiet down. It was funny because when we heard a knock (or bell) on the door, half of us ducked behind the beds to hide. It was still hard for us to keep quiet, though.
After eating tiramisu cake, listening to the song “Cake,” and posing for photos with a half-eaten cake, we decide to go to the basement and play ninja. But then the group began to scatter, so we called it a day. We all still had work in the morning.
