Well… that was awkward!!

Hey guys!

After my last post about being unemployed in Korea, I haven’t posted anything. The reason why is that, the day after I wrote that post, I had 2 job interviews. I was offered the job at my place of choice and I accepted! The catch was, I had to pack up all my things and move to the new apartment. I have been in Korea for 1 year and 8 months. In that time, I have bought many things and I have a cat. So, packing and moving was the worst thing ever.

But anyway! I got a new job, the day after I was preparing myself for a long wait and a hard time on the job search.

However, since starting my new job (the following week after the interview), I have had no time to do anything apart from sleep! I am writing this from my desk as we speak and the first time I have had a chance to in two weeks!

My new school is amazing! I am working at an English village camp in Seoul. It is so fun!
It is very different from both jobs which I have had in Korea. I am teaching almost all the time. But the lessons are much more fun than the few lessons I taught at my previous schools.
The staff are amazing!! And, I have the chance to meet different students every week! (I will write a blog post about my school soon as it is such an interesting place!)

So, I am not unemployed any more, which means I have to think of another topic to start blogging about. Since I am back in Seoul, I am sure I can find something more interesting to write about. Maybe reviews on different cafes?? We’ll see.

If you have any suggestions let me know and I will make sure that I have time to start blogging more often now that I am finally settled in!

For those of you who think I should carry on with the unemployed section, let me know! I have a lot of experience in being unemployed! hehe

Learning Korean!

Since I went to Korea I have been learning Korean. I have a few Korean friends here in London who are helping me with the process and we meet often in Korean restaurants.

So, on Friday, I made a new friend. He has been in London for one month. Yesterday we went out for dinner. Ever since we met he has been pushing me to speak Koeran but for some reason I am really shy in front of Korean guys and can’t talk Korean! Yesterday, he was still persistent that I should talk in Korean! So I made an order in Korean. 여기요! 소주 하나주세요.

We had just finished eating and because I ordered in Korean, the waiter asked me in Korean if he could take the plates. He spoke so fast I couldn’t hear! So I told him I couldn’t understand that much Korean! He apologised but I was so happy! It meant my pronunciation was so good that he thought I could understand a lot of Korean!

So, now that I am told that my pronunciation is good, I am going to study harder so I can understand and talk more!

화이팅!!
