1st of the month

So today was the November 1st! Who knew? Well it reminded me that my 18th birthday is in 21 more days! Okay and there's a national Holiday then too, but whatever. Today was a pretty good day. I slept in way late! Aw it was nice. I would have slept longer if the wind wasn't threatening to rip to trees outside my window out of the ground. My family was out celebrating so I didn't really get to talk to them for long. They were with Stefanie! Once again I blame her for my families lack of talking time, but it was cool. I saw everyone minus Ashlynn cause she thinks she can have a social life now. Whats that about? It was crazy cold/windy outside today, and I was so not happy. You know something? When its cold and windy, and you are walking against the wind. It's almost like someone is flicking your cheeks over and over again. Oh well what can you do? Work was good. Heejung dropped the ball on me that she is adding a class to the schedule, and it is going to be a business man's class. Great! I am way scared and the first class is tomorrow. I had some free time to send off some postcards which was cool. Some people have ridiculously long addresses. Hope they enjoy their postcard & picture of Korea because I ran out of ink from writing their address that I couldn't even write a message. So I told Heejung a few days ago that I wanted to watch a movie and maybe we could rent one. So Heejung and I went on a man hunt for English DVD's. She took me on this hike type thing. You know something I've noticed? If you walk a long way in one direction; eventually you are going to have to was back the same long way just up hill. It's okay though we found DVD's they were right across the street from where we started. Haha strange huh? So the hike was just for some cardio. The rest of work was cool. We did a lesson, and some mas recording, and then I went home The bus ride home was fun because I had this lady take a picture of me cause my mom said I needed more pictures, and she was the only one who after asking 4 people finally got what I was saying. Well she had two kids a boy and a girl. The boy kept saying hi to me, and trying to say things in English under his breath and the girl was just playing. She was adorable. They rode the same bus I did, and the little girl kept looking back at me and smiling, and then giggling, and the little boy kept looking back at me and then blushing. When they got off the bus they yelled BYE really loud. It was cute. Then the whole way up to their street they kept looking back at the bus and waving to me. It was then I realized how much I missed my cousins. Well I got pizza again because I didn't know what to get. I have adopted a policy that if there are no pictures in a restaurant then I don't order there alone because I don't ever know what I am going to get. Pizza was the only thing that I knew what I was getting. They apparently have my number and address memorized because they knew exactly who I was when they picked up. You call one time, and make them switch to someone who speaks English and all of the sudden the whole staff learns your information. Haha I was flattered really. I got home and hung up my laundry. Man I miss dryers! I am just going to chill now, and eat my pizza and watch some Ocean's Thirteen! Real exciting I know, but did I tell you it's freezing outside? Mom my wanted me to take some pictures so here they are. Oh the things I can do when Heejung has her back to me. = )

I like that you are blaming me. Why not Dave Bunting? Wasn't it his fault that we had a party? I think it was. I would like to see a post tomorrow blaming Dave for something.

Alexis. It took me a while to figure this thing out, but I think I've got it! I've been reading your little blogs every now and then and I must say they literally make me laugh out loud! I think I'm making the people sitting next to me in the library mad....oh well. I forgot how much I miss you. Your sense of humor kills me! I am so proud of you for going on this adventure and I CAN'T WAIT until you come up to school, then I will be part of you life again! Hahaha Love you girl and miss you SO much!

Mija, greetings from your uncle. You have grown up so fast and beautiful. Your daddy told me you were heading to Korea. I will pray that our Almighty God keeps you safe. I case you didn't know, the last person in our family that was in Korea was your grandfather during the Korea war. I'm sure he would have preferred to have been traveling and visiting, instead of fighting and defending the south. God Bless you, Jesus loves you, and so do I! Your uncle Richard
