So after much procrastination and plain forgetfulness I’ve decided to postpone my trip to Busan. The problem I encountered with waiting for so long to try and book my trip was the fact that all the train tickets were gone and all of the hostels, guesthouses, and reasonably priced hotels were all booked. I am, however, going to Gyeongju (a city about 90 minutes by bus from Busan) with two of my friends. We’re leaving on Friday at 1:00pm. I’ll be missing my two classes, and I feel bad about it, but I don’t know when I’ll be coming back to Korea, so I figured doing some exploring is worth missing a day’s worth of material.
I got one of my midterms back, and I got a C on it. Which is not what I thought I’d get, since after taking it I felt incredibly confident about it, but I didn’t read the story for one of the questions, so I only got a 2/10 on it. The other questions I got 9/10, 8/10, and 10/10. So I guess I’ll do better on the final (I only need a 76 on it to get a B in the class) assuming I read.
I honestly cannot wait for my return to Korea. I’m hoping to keep in touch with the friends I’ve made here. It will be interesting to see how generous (or not) time will be to them. The same can also be said about myself. I hope everything works out for the best. Only time will tell.
