Oh my god! Time really do go fast but, at the same, I really do miss home. However, recently here at Soonchunhyang we had ‘Global Day’ which was held on May 18th.

An early morning of before Global Day start. Everyone is neither still asleep up in their room up in the dorm or have already kind of prepare their tent for the day. This picture was taken at 9am and the Global Day event doesn't actually start until 11am.

There were, I think about 12 or 13 tents setup that day and each tent had their own activities they were doing. There were I believe 3 tents that was actually cooking food at their tent rather than having some kind of activities. It was a really fun day but, at the same time it was a super tiring day for everyone also because we were all running around everywhere. It was also super hot that day, everyone was crazily hovering at the China tent because there was hand printed fans over there and everyone on that day really did needed something to fan themselves with. Even I was dying from staying inside this 3-walled tent on this such hot weather day. In the end, everything went well and everyone was happy. However, the Friday beforDSC01614e ‘Global Day,’ we actually also had another event for all international students. It was called ‘Sport Night,’ which was where everyone come together at the gymnastic and competitive against one another. There were actually two team, a black (

Temple food (bean sports , steam green veggies, some other purple looking steam veggies, kimchi, rice, and rice cake)

odd number dorm) and a white (even number dorm). You could say it was fun but, there wasn’t really enough games for every single person be able to actually play overall because since it was a Friday, most of the Korean students who live in Global Village are usually leave to go home on Friday morning. There wasn’t much people there at ‘Sport Night’ than at ‘Global Day’ because of the day differences. Now enough of that talk, recently about a week ago, I decided to visit a Buddhist temple again. But, being the person who I was, I totally forgot that it was Buddhist’s birthday and when I arrived there, there were a crowded of people there. It was actually my first time seeing this much people here at the temple for once since the last time I came, which was actually in the winter. I saw many new things and actually try eating temple food for the first time, and also my last.

This is kind of how I’ve been spending my time during this May season here in Korea, this also remind me. I really need to start catching my on my studies now since final exam is only a week away. I’ve been totally lazy on my studying now since I’ve been in Korea for no particular reason. Now then, I hope to write another blog before the semester ends here in Korea but, I’m not totally sure if I’ll remember since I do easily forget things. 

See ya!
