The workshop was schedule to take place after our midterm testing last week so I had to show up for a half day of desk warming before we made our departure. While sitting there I had some time to read over the itinerary for our trip and my spirits began to fade, it appeared we'd be spending the entire afternoon/evening in the Gyeongju K hotel banquet hall. As our bus departed I was a little annoyed as Anna and Jin sat laughing in the back of the bus with the fun math teachers and I was stuck somewhere in the middle trying to hold a conversation with my other, not so favorite, co-teacher 김수경. All of this after Anna explained to me that they had to sit together because this might be Jin's last trip with our school (when in fact i'm leaving in 3 months), "but we can sit near each other on the bus". This only annoyed me because Anna and Jin can tend to act like the 'mean girls' of our school and seeing as I'd be sharing a room with them that night I was hoping this wasn't going to continue for the entire trip.

Never again. Of course I first labeled this post as such with regards to drinking, but how many times have we all said that one before? I was going to change the name when I came up with something more appropriate until I realized it didn't need changing. Never again will I have the opportunity to participate in an overnight workshop filled with food, friends, singing, dancing and of course 소먹, with this amazing group of people. After my weekend of death I quite honestly never want to drink again, but then I think of the fun we had and I definitely don't regret it. Sure, I wanted to die for the rest of the weekend, and only started to feel human come Monday, but I guess that's the price you have to pay sometimes. Despite the hangover, i'm happy to have this memory of my last school trip as a staff member of Buksam High school; a night i'll never forget, well except the parts I can't remember....
