Third day of teaching, not too shabby. So, I’ve taught for three days now. Today was the first day of two day classes that meet every Tuesday and Thursday. I was more confident for these classes than those that I taught on Friday. I even got ~two~ compliments today. I said, “고맙습니다” or “Thank you.” to one of the staff today when he came in to give the students a handout about their homework website and the kids were like 😮 “OH MY GOD BRITT TEACHER JUST SAID 고맙습니다!!!” So then I said, “나는 미국 사람이다” and they were like @_@ and didn’t speak Korean because they think I understand more than I actually do. Haha! Also, my name for the next 12 months will be, Britt Teacher, because that’s how the kids address you. I have a feeling I might introduce myself to someone that’s not a student that way.
So there’s a supermarket right below my school. It’s pretty convenient, honestly. I usually leave my apartment a little early to dick around in the store and look and shit. Yesterday, for example I bought mold killer for my bathroom, a rice cooker, some rice, and the Korean version of Ding-Dongs. The Ding-Dongs are pretty legit. Some other foods I’ve tried, like Doritos, are gross and just taste wrong. They have more sweet/sugary taste and just YUCK! Hershey’s brand is pretty big from what I gather in my nine days of being here. The Hershey’s chocolate milk that I’ve had is to die for! It comes in a box, like a juice box, and omasdflsdflsadj omg so good! I have tried “regular” milk and it tastes too different than “American regular” milk; this could also be due to the fact that I don’t drink milk on a regular basis and am lactose intolerant. The grape juice is pretty bomb too. If you know me, you know I LAAAAHVE grape juice. I’ve eaten my fill of 만두, or dumplings, for a while now and don’t really care to eat them in the next few days.
