New semester coming

As I mentioned before, Koreans got ~2 months of holidays after semester ends in December.

And damn, guess what, the March is coming and with it the end of holidays! Man, I will miss those times, when I needed to spend only about 4-6 hours a day at school. That's the holidays I like!

Yeah, kidding, BUT I hope I am not gonna spend that much more time at school during semester. And there is a hope!

As this program is relatively new, they are trying something different this time. The college picked 5 "best" students and will create mixed class of foreigners and Koreans.

So why "best"? Hard to say what was their criteria, as they picked me. I mean they did not picked the students with best results, so I guess I was picked because I am boy? We are suppose to study mechanical engineering, so that would make sense, ha? Student with best results was girl. Anyway, it doesn't ends here, we still got 3 girls and 2 boys. Weird.

We are to be moved to another campus.

So what's the deal? 

It's somewhere out of city, in the forest, no public transport (only school ones). We will get dorm for free, same with tuition (don't know if free or discounted). But we need to pay for breakfast and dinner, even we wont eat it. Yes, weird. And guess what, it's Korean food. I am dammed. Let's hope something will change (about food). Freaking toast bread and salami would do my breakfast - or at least better than paying for something I proly wont use. We are probably also getting change to take laptop for deposit. We will live with one Korean classmate. We should have shower in room. No kitchen. Boy and girl floors separated.

Yea. I am "special". 

What was funny about all of this was how they did the process of deciding and letting us know. Korean way, at least our experience, is that they always let you know kinda like "as late as possible". They told us who is gonna be in better group saying "Send me questions, and let me know your decision tomorrow morning." It was 5PM.

Yea, let's finished this with one more info, if anyone still reading: NO E-ZONE for me.

Damn, I am wrong, we will have, but only once a week.

If by any chance someone still reading, time for you to get drunk!
