Yesterday we went to the wedding of one of the guys from our church. It was a typical Western-style Christian wedding with a few differences; Bruce did a complete formal bow when the couple was presented to the parents. There was also no kiss. After the wedding they called groups us to take pictures with the couple. No one paid any attention to any of those pictures till it was our (the Church group) turn. Suddenly it was pretty quiet as everyone watched the Americans (8 or so) get their picture taken with the couple. There were a few Koreans from our Church in the pic too, but we all knew why people were looking. Everyone sat at tables for the wedding, which apparently is done here as often as it is in the West. After the wedding several of us went shopping. I got three CD's and a canvas bag that says "I'm not a plastic bag." Actually I got the bag on the way to the wedding but that's a minor detail.
During the wedding.
Monday is Children's Day. It has some meaning I'm sure but the only one I'm interested in is the one that gives us the day off school. I'm in dire need of a break; I've been very very tired of late and it's shown this week. Twice I barked at my 6th hour Earth Science class. Not that they did not necessarily deserve it but I did not need to bark at them in the manner that I did.
We are in the final half of the last quarter. I can't wait for summer.
