Went for a haircut. Ended up with a haircut, tea and snacks, a neck massage, and scalp care (hence the head steaming). Only in Korea?
The 17 year old student who sacrificed his life for his classmate on the South Korean ferry accident yesterday by giving up his life jacket . He was the president of the high school that was heading on a four day trip to Jeju Island. Today is his birthday. Why do things have to happen like this. Happy birthday and RIP, angel. #jungchawoong #정찰웅 #tooyoung #toosudden #rip
About to do something really embarrassing for my 5th graders tomorrow. We’ll see if it flops or if I’ll start hearing them singing, “Do you want some more bibimbap?” in the hallways instead.
Recently, I’ve been having pretty adventurous dreams. I’ll wake up feeling a bit more tired because so much has happened while I’ve been asleep. Most days, I don’t remember the dreams. Sometimes, I’ll remember a small blip or recall what general sort of dream it was. Rarely, I’ll remember most of what happened.
Anyway, I woke up today, a little more tired than usual since I was roaming Seoul (Hongdae) this weekend with the nerd herd. I had stayed at the boy’s apartment after getting back from Seoul and had to wake up early to catch a bus to my place. I managed to travel the ~40 minute bus ride, get home, cook breakfast, eat, and start brushing my teeth before my dream suddenly hit me.
So I thought I would share it because I think it’s funny. Maybe I’ll illustrate it someday.
For some reason, I had three tanks of goldfish. Pretty sizable tanks too. And many, many goldfish. And I started feeding them flakes, dropping flakes in one by one, mildly insaniquarium style. But the same fish kept gobbling up the flakes and there were many hungry ones so finally I started just dumping in a large amount of flakes. Then in one tank, the fish started growing larger and larger and suddenly became koi fish. And they were so large they were squishing each other in the tank. In another, the fish just kept multiplying and I ended up with more and more goldfish. I can’t remember what happened to the last tank. I think my dream shifted three tanks to two at this point.
The koi fish were really pretty and mesmerizing. The goldfish were derpy and potentially growing smaller with their multiplying. Anyway, I started panicking because I had so many fish and the koi fish were much too big for their tanks. What can I do?! I decided I needed to release my magical fish into the wild, but was concerned about predators and they’re ability to survive after living a cozy, flake-fed life. Eventually I settled on that being my only option and somehow was transported to a nice pond/lake outside. I was with someone who has no identity other than being my dream friend. Then I got really grossed about about having to touch the fish (even though I had a net?) and my dream friend stepped in and released my magical fishies.
My brain sometimes…
I’ve had some pretty freaky nightmares too, very very rarely, but they aren’t as fun as magical fish dreams.
Maybe one day I’ll write about the one with the unicorn-Pegasus’s or the flying whales with lasers someday. :p
