A couple weeks ago, my mentor teacher asked if I'd like to stay at her house over the weekend. Well, this is that weekend!
I am up especially early so that I can go buy a small gift to bring. It is customary for people to bring gifts to someone's house, especially when visiting for the first time. I'm not sure if I'm obligated to bring anything, but better safe than sorry. I just hope it's not raining too hard outside. I don't know where my umbrella's run off to.
What can I expect this weekend??? To tell you the truth, I have no idea what to expect. All I know is that my mentor teacher lives with her husband, son, daughter, and mother-in-law. What will their home look like? Will the rest of the family be kind or unkind? What will the expect of me :o ?? Will I have to eat super spicy food all weekend? Will my mentor teacher remember that she wanted us to have donuts and pizza this weekend? Will I put on the spot to talk about my past travels, and nervously bring up living in Japan (I'll save that for another post... If you can't wait, just research Korea's historical relationship with Japan)? Aaahh, SO. MANY. UNCERTAINTIES!
Of course, there's really no need to worry. I suppose the scary bit is being at their house for more than a few hours. Also, we are suppose to go to church on Sunday (which I'm fine with), but she mentioned something about me meeting lots of children.... and I'm not exactly sure what that means. I envisioned my time in the church to be a distressful event. I'm already prepared to be stared at by the entire congregation.
Oh, look at the time. I'm kind of late getting started, but I wanted to write this for you because I'll be gone almost all weekend. I'll let you know how it goes!
'Til next time,
