The new school year has been okay, I guess? My new students are pretty great. This year the girls have big personalities and the boys are on the quiet side - a bit of a reversal from last year.
Yesterday my mom dropped off my scholarship application to the embassy in Chicago, and managed to talk briefly with the woman in charge of the application review. Apparently the yearly average number of applications to that consulate is about 10. 21 total people in the entire USA can get the scholarship. I'm really terrified. I'll find out about when I'll have an interview next week, have the interview sometime this month, and find out if I got the scholarship May 1st.
I want this scholarship so bad.
I was really sick last week and I'm not necessarily back to full health. I feel better, yes, but one of my tonsils is not its normal size yet. I don't know what's wrong with me but I hope it completely goes away soon.
In Korean class recently we've been focusing a lot on pronunciation, and I seem to be approaching "good pronunciation" status. Of course, my speaking skills are godawful. At least I'll sound Korean while I struggle to spit out a grammatically incorrect sentence.
Current mood: tired.

I saw Megan and Jess off at the bus terminal today. I didn't really hang out with Jess this year, but she's a sweetheart and an all around awesome person. Plus, she's willing to let me use her uterus for cheap. Winning! And Megan... well, I've known her since the first full day I spent in Korea. Watching her get on the bus depressing. Walking away was more depressing. I have two friends left in Korea. I don't know if I should even bother trying to make more friends - I've got 5 months left in Gwangju. Why bother?
I seem to be quite sick at the moment. One of my tonsils is swollen and my throat's covered in white spots. I'm going to go to the doctor tomorrow, since I didn't want to deal with the emergency room today. (Doctors in Korea are generally closed on Sundays.) Tomorrow's the first day of school so hopefully I'll be able to make it through the day without any trouble.
It's hard to believe that it's March already. Two months ago today I was in Morocco.
Current mood: not the best.
