2012-06-14 Final's in Korea

Stress Relief Waffle :P

Hey friends!

So as the title suggests, you would know that finals are about to commence. The official start is Friday, but some have already been taking a few. I know I personally have had about two presentations and a final paper already due and then three more finals to go! Sadly for me I have the same issue as mid-terms, in that I will have my two hardest finals on the same day (Monday). Ugh. So not looking forward to that.

Finals at Yonsei are basically like Mid-terms but intensified. Basically what happens is that all the seats in the Libraries and 24 hours cafes around Yonsei are taken by all the college students who are studying. It is very difficult to find a place to study if you want to get out of your room. But it has definitely given me a new perspective on how much I can take for granted the education that I have. 

But even in this time of studying, I still have the opportunity to spend time with the many friends that I was able to make over the semester and make the last week that I have with them count. It is bizarre to see that they will be leaving me while I have decided to stay at Yonsei for another semester. I will be making many more friends over the summer and over the course of the next semester which will be awesome. More networking!

Today I had the opportunity to go to Samcheongdong with my small group members from Emmaus. I can't believe I hadn't been there before. It is super close and super amazing. It is like an architect's dream, I suppose you could say. There are so many fancy buildings and nicely decorated cafes that I couldn't even decide where to look. I will definitely have to go again sometime soon. We went to a belgium waffle place and got the waffle pictured above. Seriously, it was huge. But with the six people that I was with, we were able to devour two of those waffles! It was totally insane. I am sure that was like record time. But super awesome. Also in that area is the President of Korea's real home (not the blue house). It was cool to know that he lived nearby, but of course it was surrounded by many trees so we couldn't actually see what it looked like. It was a good time to relax from my studies.

But now it's time to get back to studying.

Enjoy Reading!
