As you’re reading this, I’m be on Jeju. Jeju is hailed by Koreans as Korea’s Hawaii. While I’m doubtful of the legitimacy of this claim, I’m sure it’s a super nice place. My old university roommate lives on Jeju and he was kind enough to let me and my friend (same guy I went to Japan with) sleep at his house. So I don’t need to stress about finding a place to sleep.
I’m really excited to see what Jeju has to offer. If I ask my students where they’d like to live, they typically say Jeju, so my hopes are pretty high.
Speaking of my students… I asked my high level grade 1 (7th grade) students if they could go shopping for a new English teacher, what they’d like. Here’s what they’d want: 200cm, 75kg, high nose, big eyes, small face, blue and violet eyes, his father works for BMW, from the USA, rich (gives money to students), straight dark brown hair and (I had to add this one myself) a good teacher. So there you have it. The perfect boyfriend middle school English teacher.
Having lived around Seoul for the last 11 months, I’m excited to get away from the hectic lifestlye and check out what Korea’s like when it’s more mellow. I hope I’ll have one or two good stories when I get back.
