Putting aside the lectures the best part of Orientation was meeting new people. Certainly I wasn't fond of everyone, for example the guy who creepily hit on me. But I came out of this event with a few great new friends who share similar thoughts with me.
This was achieved through the magic of Scrabble and probably coincidence. I knew there were people like me out here in Korea just didn't know when I would meet them.
Anyways, one of the highlights during Orientation was Dano Fan Painting. Before dinner I joined others in one of the lecture halls. There were several activities you had to sign up for. I sat down in the front where I was close to the presentation.
This was explained to us along with the symbol of peonies, which were on the fan and meant for us to have a happy future. Then some examples were shown to us.
One of the funny things people did was charades on the stage.
Tomorrow is Monday and of course I go back to work after missing out for three days last week. I know one of my coteachers, Mrs. K, was probably stressed out and tired without me. So I hope to remember to buy her something at the bakery on my way to work to say thank you. On Tuesday we have an open class for the teachers at our school and I know she will be starting to freak out about that. As for me I am fine with doing open class...haha.
Anyways, if you see yourself coming to Korea and heading to an Orientation take it with an open mind and try to make new friends.
I am going to leave all of you with this video montage I made of the Orientation.
