Teacher’s Day was on Friday. While it’s not a day off of school, it is a day filled with many gifts for teachers. Too many gifts! I was showered with a lot of amazing presents from my kids (honestly, their parents) and I feel really lucky. Chanel lipgloss, a gold-plated lipstick that looks more fit for a museum exhibit than my purse, a hand-painted leather wallet, a homemade keychain, a silver and diamond Disney keychain, spa candles and incense, expensive tea-wow. The pros of working at a hogwan for the children of rich Koreans are really becoming apparent. On the non-material end of things, the kids were fantastic. They made me a giant card filled with declarations of love and pictures. I teared up a little. It was a lovely day.
