- We had a pretty big snow storm on Friday, one of the biggest Gwangyang has had in a long time. It was probably about an inch or two of snow (not a ton by Ohio standards but big where I am at). It was enough to cover the ground and make snowmen and snowballs. Naturally, there were some intense snowball fights that occurred. At my school, there are 10 minutes between each class where students are free to do literally whatever so most opted to head outside and play in the snow. I joined them for a bit and got myself wrapped up into a snowball fight. I was holding my own for a while, but eventually the number of students was too many and I had to retreat inside the school. Some students brought snowballs into school, but I don't think any were launched. I know one student in my 4th period class brought a snowball in and I just gave him a weird look. After 10 minutes of it melting in his hands, he says "Teacher! Can I go to trash?" to throw it away. Didn't quite understand that one haha.
- After school, I went to CrossFit and had a pretty intense workout. I did some double-unders, pull-ups, kettlebell swings, and a particularly tough rowing workout. It was good, but exhausting!
- Unfortunately, the main highlight of this weekend has been me being sick. On Friday night it was pretty bad with vomiting and more. By Saturday morning, I began to hydrate myself a lot better and I got a ton of sleep. Right now (Sunday afternoon) I feel about 100x better and am only a little bit tired. I still don't have much of an appetite, but it's better than what it was before!
- I also have to make my lesson plans for winter camp. I'm pretty excited about it though. The theme is decades and I am going to teach about pirates (1700's not really a decade, but whatever), inventions (1890's-1900's), and boy bands and pop music (1990's). I can't wait to see what my other ETA friends are coming up with. I heard a few of their ideas and they seem great. Definitely more academic than mine, but I think that can be a very good thing. We'll see how it goes!
