Happy New Year from Korea!

January 3, 2016

On the Menu
So my companion and I went to this restaurant and low and behold attached to the receipt was a selfy stick.  THE MEAL COMES WITH A SELFY STICK!  I can't even tell you how much that made my day! haha I am definitely starting a chain that lends you a selfy stick while you wait for your meal.
We couldn't pass up this opportunity to indulge in the culture. so we promptly start trying to get my comps camera to fit in this selfy stick.  The waitress gave us a curious look(okay she had been doing that for a while but now it was especially curious...) but she walked away, but alas! We are selfy stick amateurs! After a min of us fumbling with the selfy stick, she came up to us and was like... "This thing is for cell phones"........ and we were like. "ah yes yes.... but we don't have those"... and she was like : How about I just take your picture?" reluctantly we agreed....  and here is the pic!

Hard Workers
So Koreans win for being the most hard working. Like really.... if you are complaining about school stop and think about Korea... Kids have school from 7am-9 pm..... THAT ISN'T EVEN ENOUGH TIME FOR * HOURS OF REST! They also have half school days Saturday and Sunday!

Anyway, I felt like I was busy before my mission. However, really I hope that after my mission I will be busy in a more constructive way and busy but not so busy that life just disappears... Everything has a season. :)
Stop and smell the roses :)

Hike! We hiked a small mountain thing for New years to see the first sunrise :) it was pretty cool! Fun to get the ward together! :)  We sang my favorite hymn at the top :) Lead Kindly Light :) We then went to this abandoned restraunt and made ramen and K-pancakes! :) classic.  As we say in Korea May you recieve many new years blessings!! :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR =NEW BIRTHDAY EVERYONE!!! It's the new year!! a time of new beginnings! and getting older. Yep in Korea I am 26 now..... I know we just celebrated my birthday in Dec (where I turned 24) but my age didn't actually change in Korea... haha so along with everyone else that was born in 1991 I am now 26. If I had been born 2 weeks later I would be 25. ㅠㅠ not amused.... but anyway, that is how the sushi rolls. But this means YOU also had a birthday!!!! YOU ARE one year older in KOREA! CONGRATS!!! or Condolences.... take your pic... HAPPY NEW BIRTHDAY!!!!
