AKA company dinner:
Tonight we had our first whole-company dinner. We went to this amazingly fabulous seafood buffet that is probably more expensive than I can imagine. There were so many kinds of sushi and seafood but tons of non-seafood as well. There was a cheese table, tons of veggies and meats and nuts and fruits and amazing desserts. I have been really working hard to control my diet these past few weeks but I had to break it tonight. Not only was it great to eat at such a nice restaurant, but it is so important for us to all get together and really feel like we are a community of people doing something besides the everyday grind. It really makes the employees feel appreciated.
Afterward we were invited by a student’s mom to a rooftop party in Gwanghwamun– it was amazing. Someone forgot to send us the memo that we should dress up and dress warm, so we were all freezing. I felt bad because it was a gorgeous party but it was so cold that nobody was enjoying it. We got spoiled with free food (more food!) and free drinks (coffee, hot chocolate, beer and wine) and they had a DJ and everything. It was a really classy occasion. I’m so glad we decided to commit to go and made ourselves do it or we really would have missed out.
