I love being inspired by Korea’s continued cuteness that I spot in random places almost daily:
1) My students furiously fight for a place at my white board during the 5 minute class breaks. I beg them to use the bathroom or get a drink of water so as not to interrupt the next class session with inconvenient breaks, but they always want to take the precious break time to impress me with their drawing skills. How can you not love this drawing of ‘Devan Teacher’?
2) I love spotting splashy eye-popping colors plastered on such mundane objects such as this delivery truck. The pink is just perfect!
3) Dunkins is continuously impressing me with their iced-coffee holders. This one is just adorable!
4) Who doesn’t love finding a reason to smile while you are fighting with the pencil sharpener? My students are often interrupting class to sharpen their pencils. Korean children are obsessed with maintaining perfectly sharp pencil tips. I urge them to hurry the process along – but I can’t help but smile at the sharpener.
