As the my year comes to a close, I have been making it a point to see a lot of my best friends. Between dinners with Cam & Aileen, Kim, and James, my schedule seems to be getting pretty hefty. Next week I will be doing a Hanok stay (an overnight at a traditional Korean house) with my coteachers, which I'm really looking forward to. It's hard to believe that I only have two weeks and WORSE, two weekends left here.
This past weekend we had a big party that we named, "The Last Hoorah." We planned a big event (facebook official of course) and invited everyone from our original orientation group. On Saturday night, we all went out together in our best dress and with our best attitudes. There are no words for how much fun we had. It was awesome and we went out with a bang to say the least. Our night was packed full with gin and tonics, agwa bombs, dancing like our lives depended on it (seriously.. we got down), heel clicking competitions with strangers from France (for money), playing with stuffed animals in 7/11, eating pizza at 6am all the while having sing-alongs to Lion King with 8 other random foreigners (and entertaining the Koreans running the place), doing headstands in the subway station, planking on the subway, and getting home and in bed by 10AM. I didn't plan to or want to stay out ALL night and ALL morning but let me say, it was WELL worth it. I haven't had that much fun out in a long time. I'm so glad that I decided to go. A wonderful farewell to Seoul, it was indeed. Although it was supposed to be our last "hoorah" we all had such a good time that we want to do it again one more time before we leave and hopefully we can find the time. I cannot believe that in such a short time all the best friends i made will be dispersed all over the world. 19 days and counting...
Aileen (holding Brownie), me, and Cam!
We look pretty good for 4am.
THESE TWO, forever in my heart even
if we are worlds apart. PA, Canada, and LA UNITE!
This was completely called for.
It was 7AM... things happen. Sometimes
acting stupid in public has it's pay-off's.
We got a lot of laughs... and my head is bruised.
My beautiful Texan! Hard to believe we'll be so far apart soon!
Happiness shines through.
Cheers to Seoul, it's been a wonderful 12 months!
