This morning as I walked to school you could see the frost on the ground. I didn’t think much of it, as Google’s weather forecast told me that it’d be 50 degrees at noon today.

Lies. It is barely above freezing.

I am so cold. They leave the door open in the cafeteria and I ate my lukewarm food huddled over with my winter coat on. They leave the window open in the bathroom and as I washed my hands I noticed that I could see my breath.

It’s only going to get colder from here on out. Have I mentioned how much I hate Korean winter? I hate Korean winter.

Today I color-coordinated my tights with my flower headband. Students went insane.


My favorite tights-related conversation happened right after lunch when I ran into some second grade girls.

They started off by saying “Wow Teacher! Today you look so hot!”
I immediately started to reply “Thank you” before thinking to myself, wait, what?
“Girls, you know there are multiple meanings of hot… which one do you mean?”
“There is temperature hot, and spicy hot, right?- Oh! And sexy hot. Hot 의미는 진짜 많다…”
“Haha yes, just wanted to check. Which hot did you mean?”
