Well hello there! Thought I owed this site a quick update...its been a while me thinks! So, since my last update...hmmmmmm, yep nothing too exciting has happened. It was Chesok here in Korea last week, so it was certainly a prime excuse to party as we were all lucky enough to have tuesday through friday off school. Claire and Glenn headed off to China and Kim, Nic and Trevor headed over to Japan for the vacation. I, on the other hand, opted to stay and go completely mental here...you know the drill...drink all night, sleep all day...So I was pleased to ehar that everyone was hanging around Busan, so there would be no shortage of drinking buddies. Wednesday night rocks around and I started the night in my flat with Christine. We drank 3/4 bottle of Soju...a 1.5 litre bottle that is. Then headed on down to the bar, where I found it appropriate to continue drinking into the small hours of Thursday. Needless to say i woke up the following morning with the hangover from hell. Swearing to myself and anyone listening that I would never drnik again...well...until that night, I waited out to feel better. FIVE days later I'm in hospital hooked up to an IV drip after certainly NOT getting better. I spent my whole vacation in my apartment. Most of the time, I may add, was spent passed out on my bathroom floor, where I took refuge after realising I was unable to walk the 5 steps to get there to throw up. NOT PRETTY.
So, I've spent the last week recoving from that, and I hope never to feel like that again...bloody bad timing aswell, dont you think?!
On the work front, things are going ok...its work at the end of the day, so i have my good days, and my incredibly bad days...all in all its one of the best jobs ive had...and ive had a few!! i like the responsibilty it gives, and no-one can deny the money at the end of each month more than makes up for any negatives. Although, on saturday i did have to get up at 7am...yes, you are reading this correctly....7AM...to go to a stupid sports day-with what felt like a million 4 and 5 year olds. My main issue was that i had to wear a stupid white t-shirt...hidious, and of course in true Sam style i managed to get it dirty after about 20 minutes of putting it on. All the parents were there, and i will generalise...they were all LOONS. Really quite odd...and some of the games they had the parents playing were, well....just wrong. One required the dads to run around in a skirt, and apparently its normal here for males to wear thongs, so when they took it off to give to the next player...i was completely grossed out. wrong. just wrong. Luckily for you, my cameras kinda broken, so you dont have to share my pain...on this occasion!
Went out on Saturday night...started off at mine then headed over to Kim and Nic's with Christine. Drank a silly amount of soju and gin (i will never learn!), then went over to Haeundae for some mexican food, then ended up in U2 bar. Its a really cool place, and i think we were all relieved to find there was no live band there this week. now, im not saying the music these bands play is bad or anything, but its not a very big venue, so if you wanna spend your whole night not being able to talk to anyone due to the noise, then its fine...but luckily this week it was ok.
So, as im sure you can see, life it ticking along nicely here, nothing very exciting to report here again. I am, however, heading up to Seoul in November for Seoul fashion week. I am soooo excited...it should certainly be an experience. im hoping to stay with Eric, sample abit of the night life up there. Should be good. Claire and Glenn, bless their cotton socks, bought me back a CHLOE PADDINGTON from China...agian, you folks who know me best will probably remember me going on and on about these bags. Hours and hours spent in Harvey Nichols staring at them instead of doing my work. Im pretty chuffed to say the least! When i have my camera up and running ill bore you with the pictures of my new love....its metallic blue....
ANYWAY! enough of that...Im off to watch some cheesy chat shows now...what a gripping life i do lead!! love you all, miss you all...please stay in touch. I know im abit crap with the email thing, but ill get better i promise.
Take care...kisses xx
