Day 8

Today started out REALLY early.  I stayed up until roughly 3:00 AM in order to do some studying.  We are given a lot of vocabulary to work on and out of the ones we have been given, I only knew 1/2 of them before they were introduced.  I am also finding out that not only am I a bad speller in English, but a bad speller in Korean.  ^_^

Notes that I had for my study session.
I did notice today that class seems more manageable now.  The first two days were a bit overwhelming, but I really like the challenge.  ^_^

After the four hours of language class, Nicola씨 and I decided to go cheap for lunch.  They don't offer lunch here on campus, but they do offer Ramen at the GS on campus!  I love being able to just make it there and take it outside to eat.  I also already had a Coke because Nicola선생님 did an activity in class where we had to only speak in Korean in order to "order our drinks".  We then got the drink we asked for.  ^_^ 

After lunch, we went back to Arrupe Hall to attend culture class.  Today's class involved completing a scavenger hunt in Sincheon.  We had to walk around and find different stores/restaurants/buildings and complete different tasks.

This is where you order your movie theater tickets.

This is where you can order popcorn, etc.

Apparently you can have a good time at this hotel!

After class, we decided to go out for desert as a group, so we went down one of the streets of Sincheon and found a place that served ice cream type deserts.  Kyle씨, Vanessa씨, Valeria씨 and I chose to split an Oreo Bing Su which basically had a chocolate type ice cream for the base and shaved chocolate ice with oreo crumbs all over it.  How amazing!  ^_^

This is a piano on the side of the street that people can just sit on and play.  ^_^

The toilet at the desert place was smiling at me!  ^_^

When we finally got back, I chose to eat Ramen again--cheap!  ^_^  We all decided to hang out as a group again, though because Matthew씨 moved closer and could go out with us.  While we were together, we saw a bus that continued to make Vanessa씨 and I laugh!  I also tried dried squid for the first time.  It tastes exactly what I thought it would taste like--fishy and chewy.  ^_^  It wasn't terrible, but I was not into it.  Haha

After we finished eating, we moved our group to the small soccer field on campus to kick a ball around.  It was nice to just get out because unfortunately I chose to stay up and study again.  Kyle씨 came down to join me for a bit, but then I became too distracted with working on my listening skills.  Several of the Korean students had snuck in Soju in their water bottles are were talking about it in Korean.  I was proud that I caught that!  ^_^  Anyways, I finally went to bed at around 1:30 AM.  It is already starting out to be a nice week!
