Not only that, while I was trying to back up a bunch of my photos my computer just flipped out and "deleted" a bunch of them. (I say "deleted" because I know they must be in my computer somewhere.)
Sooo I had this great bunch of Lisbon characters photos and I can't put them up yet. But I will when I can because there were some definitely elderly cuties there.
I am back in Korea, I really got a bit worried about coming back to Korea after watching very dramatic BBC (of course) news footage of North Korea but as my co-worker said to me yesterday, "We South Koreans do not care." It seems pretty chilled out, so I am not too worried.
I got off the plane and went straight to work yesterday. My work was ABSOLUTELY amazing yesterday and got some of my classes subbed so could sleep. So I am really not feeling as bad as last time (though it's 5am right now, but I feel I have some more sleep in me.)
It's the beginning of my last full semester so I am gaining a bunch of new students and this week is just full of placement testing and getting blank stares from the tiny newbies.
I wish I was still in London hanging out with Stu (between not having a Stu and not having a camera things definitely aren't the most awesome they could be) but the most encouraging thing to come back to is that I am really on the home straight with only 4.5 months to go AND it's so warm here AND I get to hang with my K-town friends AND I get to eat kimbap and bibimbap again AND wee Lucy arrives this week for a holiday ~ yay for optimism!
I will leave you with some pictures of my great London (but really New Zealander) friends. I spent alot of riding dutch time on the back of Stu's amazing bike. So fun! I also got to watch his new band Fulangchangandi play.
I didn't even go to the city - just stayed mostly around east London, spending time with my dear friends and relaxing. The weather was fantastic and I was so sad to leave. Just because relaxing with my friends is way better than working.
