It's Friday, so you know what that means! Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs!
Let's get it started in here! I apologize for not having many pictures for this week's linky party. Not much has gone this week at school since I was desk warming every single day.
And now for the question of the day....would you ever go on the The Bachelor or the The Bachelorette? Inquiring minds wanna know!
Here is one of the ones I was working on...
Did I make you hungry?
I cried twice. The first time was over something small. I must be emotional or something. The second time was because I needed to transfer some money from my Korean bank account to my American bank account. In Korea, you have to go to a big branch of your bank (mine is 45 minutes away) to set it up, and then (supposedly) you can go to your neighborhood branch every time after that. At least that's what I was told.
I got permission to leave school early (it's a big deal to leave school early...even during desk warming hours) to go to the bank. I walked to my neighborhood bank and took a number. I sat down and waited for them to call me. I had all the necessary paperwork and everything. The guy there asked why I was there, and I showed him my paperwork. He said, "No. We can't do that here." I couldn't explain myself very well because he didn't speak much English. Then he sent me away.
I was flabbergasted. Everyone told me that this would work. I walked outside, stood on the street corner, and started crying. I called my friend, Julie, who lives here, and she made me feel better. It's hard living in another country...a country where most people do not speak English...a country where things sometimes do NOT make any sense. It can be frustrating. And often times, it's not the BIG things that you get frustrated with...it's the little things.
This is all one big learning experience I know. I know that I will look back on these days and see how God used this to strengthen me and grow me. But growing pains hurt sometimes.
I know that once I move back to the states, I will appreciate more of the "little" things and be more grateful. I will definitely be grateful for the food. Did you see the fat? Oh, and on that night, I also ate something from the sea that tasted just like nail polish. Seriously.
Until we meet again....cheers!
