Another week has passed here in Korea! Things at the moment have been a bit uneventful, since life is falling more and more into a routine. One thing I have noticed is I find myself constantly trying to enjoy the “little things” or “little moments”. I went through my quarter life crisis last year (its real!), and though I am finally over it, I have noticed that I constantly want to just enjoy the moments I am in. I love John Mayer and his song “Stop this Train”, as that is often how I feel. I wish life would just slow down a little bit. These moments come and then pass by. They are gone in the blink of an eye and are then added to the collection of memories that make up my life.
On another note, Halloween is this week and we are celebrating at our elementary school! I can’t wait to take pictures to share in my upcoming posts! I also had a great teaching moment last week. I had a student tell me that one of my classes was a lot of fun and that she really enjoyed it. I don’t have a picture of that, to add to my moments, but it will be a memory I keep. It’s such a nice feeling to hear that when you teach! 🙂
So here are some of my memories I’ll share with you, from this past week ❤
My Apartment – I took a philosophy course in college as one of my requirements to graduate. The focus on this course was specifically spaces and places that shape you as a person, mostly the home. We often don’t realize how much a home does shape us through our lives, even if we are there for just a short while. I love our little Korean Apartment.
In one of my elementary classes this past week, I was teaching emotions. The students had just read about impressionism and art, so for our free practice, they were given a topic, a verb, and an emotion. They had 2 minutes to draw a picture of what that meant to them. 🙂 This topic card was “Alien, Dying, Annoyed” and these are their masterpieces.
The leaves changing colors. I can’t get enough of this. I try to take as many pictures as I can to capture these moments because before we know it, the trees will be bare.
The random things we see each week- I know if I don’t pull out my camera phone, I’ll forget this stuff. Most of it is probably unimportant, but still a memory, like A rooster on a motorcycle in the middle of a busy city.
The little bits of Halloween in South Korea
The tired mornings of having to get out of my warm bed to take my dogs out..who wake up early with the sunrise.
Have a good week! 🙂
