Hey everyone! Still alive and kickin’ in Uijeongbu. It is crazy how long it has been since my last post. I just wanted to do a quick update of what David and I have been up to lately.
First of all, Ultimate Frisbee ended a couple of weeks ago and I have mixed feelings about it. I loved hanging out with my team and they were all super awesome people. However, I hated having to travel so much and always be on the move on my precious days off. In the end, it was definitely worth it. The Cheonan Cheonwons finished strong and almost upset the playoffs by losing in universe point against one of the most difficult teams in the league, The Feel (who, sidenote, KILLED us the first time we played them at the beginning of the season). If you are interested in playing Ultimate in South Korea, the league is called Republic of Korea Ultimate and there is a spring and fall league.
A LONG time ago, as in April 26th, we had Gym Day. Gym Day is on a Saturday (one of two Saturdays we have to work) and is pretty much a day for the parents. I was pretty sick that day but luckily I was armed with Dayquil so I made it through all right. It turned out to be a pretty fun day. I had to MC at the beginning which was nerve-wracking but I made it through. Basically how Gym Day works is the parents bring their kids to a rented gymnasium (ours was on a college campus) and then a hired MC plays games and entertains the kids and the parents. The classes are divided into two teams, red and blue, so it gets really competitive but not in a negative way. I felt like it was mostly for the parents though. One of the best things was that ENTIRE families came to the event. This included parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles… you name it! There was even a prize (a GIANT bag of rice) for the team that brought the most family members.
There is more to update about but I am feeling lazy so I am going to post this and hopefully update more later! XOXO
