The next couple months of my life...

consist of Christmas break, winter camp, winter break, Lunar New Year, Spring Vacation, and home leave. haha

So my calendar looks like this:
December 1-21: School
December 22-26: Christmas Break
December 27-Jan. 14: Winter Camp
January 17-30: Winter Vacation
Jan. 31-Feb. 1: School
Feb. 2-4: Lunar New Year, No School
Feb. 7-11: School
Feb. 12-28: Home Leave
Mar. 1: No School
Mar. 2: School starts

Whew...that wore me out!!! I had my open class Nov. 11 and it went quite well. My kids were pretty good. Next week I will hopefully be able to apply for my F-4 visa and start thinking about Winter Camp.

Oh...I'm needing book recommendations!!! I'm in the process of reading a book called "Girl in Translation" or something like that. But, I'm sure I'll finish that one within the next month. So, would love some recommendations for when my break time rolls around!!!

Alright...until next time...

The re-signing process has begun...

I received papers to start the re-signing process last week. I turned in the paperwork and was then told Wendy, who is in charge of the English Education at our school that she talked to someone at the district office or SMOE that it's pretty much a 100% done deal that I will be back at Sindorim Elementary School next year! Which means the VP likes me and wants me to stay! haha Granted we have not always seen eye-to-eye, but keeping my mouth shut has paid off! haha

So, I have my open class on Thursday during 1st period with my 5-1 class. They are pretty noisy, but their English level is higher than the others and they are always participating. So, they were the best class to choose from. So after class I'm sure they'll want to talk to me like last time and then hopefully will tell me then that I can re-sign and blah blah blah!!!

I will be given 2 weeks to come home. Feb. 15 would be that date. Feb. 15-28. So, I will be home for my birthday! I suppose that makes up for not being home for Christmas. My first Christmas away from home and I have a feeling I will be spending it here by myself. I've been told constantly after being asked what am I doing for Christmas. And I answer nothing, that I need to "make a boyfriend". What do you say to that? I just politely chuckle and nod. I've been here for 8 months and in that time haven't had any luck, what makes you think I can do that in the 1 month I have until Christmas!?!?! haha Whatever, I'll just make myself some Mandu and watch my TV Shows and be happy because come Monday I'll be back at work. BLAH!!!!

Anyways, that's all for now.
