Well, I finally got paid and during my break I went to get some money out to pay April back what I owed her. Which was 110 dollars, or 110,000 won. And for some reason 500,000 won looked like less than 110,000 won when I was trying to get money from the ATM so I pulled out 500,000 won and thought “Well, I’m half way there… but man that is a lot of bills (they are 10,000 bills).” And as I was about to draw out ANOTHER 500,000 won I was like “Hey! I just drew 500 dollars, not 50! I am le dumb.” So I almost got 1,000,000 won in 10,000 bills.
Anyway, I watched a Starcraft tournament that was being cast live in Seoul last night. It blew my mind how big Starcraft (a computer game for those not in the know) is in Korea, the players have sponsors and there are competitive teams, they have fan squads and live TV, and commentators that get SO into the games. It is astonishing. Fun fact: Starcraft is contributed as being one of the major factors of pulling Korea out of a depression. (It created lots of jobs by making a pro tour circut, which produced boat loads of money.)
Class went well today, especially since one of my classes didn’t have any students in it. How cool is that? Plus most of the middle school students were gone today as well, so yeah. Awesome day.
I know Marie’s opinion on this, would anyone else read a blog where I randomly talked about the games I was playing?
