New Year’s has came and went, laid low preferring to watch TV over getting unnecessarily inebriated, and then our initial ambitions of catching the sunrise were replaced by our comfortable bed. Seeing the sunrise is a popular Korean past time for New Years, but the weather was too cold and windy, and we were by then far too sober, to brave the elements. We did have Domino’s pizza, which was tasty and covered in potatoes and bacon.
Same old same old, otherwise, soccer and DJing are going well for Anderson, though he hurt his knee last week so he’s taking this weekend off to heal up. He’s gotten Ableton Live for his Mac, so he’s beginning the lengthy process of making his own remixes and such, in order to switch to laptop DJing from CD-DJing.
At school “winter intensives” are upon us, so there are extra classes during the day, and a 4-hour morning session that some kids are attending. Liz is teaching 2 classes in the morning, so she’s earning a little bit of our scanty overtime pay, while Anderson actually has an easier schedule, except on Tuesday and Thursday when he has 8 straight classes with no lunch break. It’s only for the month of January though, so it’s nothing too bad, although Liz’s longer workday isn’t exactly her preference.
We went back to Vesta, the Korean sauna (jimjilbang) in Haeundae, which was great, and today we located a nice one two blocks from our house that we’ll be visiting in the very near future.
Tomorrow is Liz’s birthday (26!), so we’re going to go out for an all-you-can-eat sushi buffet, which is not only reasonably priced at 15,000 won, but is supposed to be amazingly tasty, as well. We’ll find out soon!
Miss you all very much,
