yesterday at Costco i bought the largest pizza i've ever seen, and for only 12,500 won - and to top it off, there were only 6 slices, so each one was like an entire meal unto itself.
the job, as usual, is wearing thin. but the good news is that we have passed the halfway point of our contracts, so hopefully it's all down hill from here.
this was a 4 day work week (aren't those so much nicer than 5 day weeks? i wonder why we don't all work 4 10-hour days. i'd much prefer that). it was also the start of a brand new semester. unfortunately, we don't have another break until our vacation starting april 19, so that's a bummer. but the vacation should be really cool. we're flying to Jeju island, off the southern coast of Korea. you can learn more about this awesome sub-tropical getaway, the "Hawaii of Asia," on the offical government tourism site by clicking here
and since we're such misers with our income, we decided for once to actually splurge, and we'll be staying at the hyatt regency. it's a beautiful hotel, right on the beach, so it should make for a nice stay. you can see pictures of it here
lastly, because i haven't taken advantage of our Amazon Associates affiliation before, and since they've finally come to an author-friendly agreement with McMillan and i can like them again, i thought i'd put a friendly reminder here. i will still be in korea on my birthday, so anyone who wants to get me a present, and have it waiting for me when i get home, you could do a lot worse than buying the latest book in the Wheel of Time, The Gathering Storm (Wheel of Time, Book 12) by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson. just throwing that out there.
have a great weekend everyone
