good news weekend..
i do not, in fact, have pink eye! it appears that my eye was just really irritated.. enough to last for a few days. but it's back to normal and i can get back to juggling tomorrow! hooray!

i got some wonderful souvenirs this weekend in insadon (a shopping area in seoul). spent a lot of money, but it was totally fun.

this is a little bit silly, but it made me excited: for the first time in as long as i can remember, i weigh less than my older brother. may not sound like a big deal, but being bigger than him was the cause of a lot of stress when we were younger. so this now is just kind-of humorous to me. now that i'm completely ok with my 'weight'. funny how things work.

i borrowed the first season of Lost from a friend and have been losing myself in that in my free hours this weekend. sometimes it is nice to just sit and relax for a while, instead of spending all my weekend time going around doing things. :)

korea has a soccer game at 4am monday. gonna try to get up to see it, as that is *all* i will hear about at school on monday, and my kids will give me endless amounts of crap if i haven't seen it. also.. it's really amazing how much national pride and team spirit there is here. during the last game, the cheering in neighboring apartment buildings was so loud that it seemed like people were right outside our windows. i can't wait to hear what it is like for this game. should be interesting to see how many people are actually up at that time for the game!
