I'm not sure if it was the weather, pure laziness, anticipation for the weekend or what but I woke up on the wrong side of the bed with a bug up my butt - seriously I was crabby. No one seemed to urge me in the direction of the buses so I thought maybe I could sneak under the radar and just stay at my desk, or retreat to my classroom and burrow in like a mole. Well luck wasn't on my side, Anna soon came running in "Stephanie, we load the buses now - okay come you join me!". I had no idea what was in store for the day but was soon told we were on our way to Gimcheon to, get this, pull weeds. I'm not joking.

Despite my crabbiness and the little bit of rain that was starting to spit on us, it wasn't really that bad. I think one thing that made it more bearable was the boys I was working along side, they found the fact that I was actually working hilarious, and commended me on my great work. Not only that but they were cracking jokes, listening to music and of course dancing - also to their great amusement was any time I understood their Korea, spoke Korea myself, or hummed along to their songs - sometimes people really must think I live in an American bubble or something. Like I live here, of course I know how to use chopsticks, I can eat spicy food and yes I even know the music.
