My second week in VANK is almost finished. How do I feel?
I think I kind of got used to atmosphere here and I feel really naturally now. Two weeks has passed really fast. Today is Friday and I was so sure it’s Thursday… sadly, it’s not.
It’s so strange that work here is not boring for me. I do things that interest me, I explore Korean culture, I learn history. There were some events and even though I wasn’t very active I felt interested. It was first time when I had to tell about myself in front of 70 kids. It was unforgettable experience. I am usually a person who gets stressed so easily. Though I don’t show it, inside my brain there is a ton of thoughts, my heart is running crazily. Even though I’m such a person, I wasn’t stressed at all. Okay, maybe a little bit but compared to my usual reaction it was nothing. I am not sure if kids understood me but at least they were smiling. I’m glad for such an experience even if it was only my introduction.
Work at office is also nice. It’s also some kind of an experience that will be precious for me when I go back to Poland. I will tell my friends how many nice people I met, how much I’ve learned. Once again I am happy to be here and grateful for VANK choosing me for their intern.
Once again, food in Korea is so delicious I want to eat and eat and eat but my stomach is not that big. The only shock for me was fish with head. I think I can’t eat anything that has a head… I prefer not to know how it looked like before it went down to my stomach. Apart of that, I love everything I ate here. People from office are always recommending mi something which I always like. They know my taste so well. Oh! THANK YOU!
Now… let’s get out of office. Weather here amused me a bit. I thought I will run away from cold weather but Korea is also cold. Luckily I am used to Polish temperature, which is -20 in January, so I’m not complaining. I took warm clothes with me and I think I won’t freeze to death.
Anyway… I’m going sightseeing even if it’s -40. My camera is ready, I am ready and waiting for Saturday morning!
How much I don’t want to go back to Poland. When I think that it’s another week closer to me leaving Korea, I feel sad. Time flies so fast…….. too fast.
