This is the story all about how... my students and I co-wrote a new version of the 12 Days of Christmas titled the 12 Days of Icon. We spend the better part of half an hour coming with each of the days. Each day was especially crafted to represent the things that happened most in class or the things they complain about the most. What we ended up was a perfect representation of what my daily life looks like. If you're ever wondering "How is Lali doing in Korea? What does she do every day?" Well, look no further than the 12 days of Icon life.
After writing our ouvre, we settled in for an evening of eating pizza and watching Home Alone. YES THIS WAS OUR SCHOOL'S CHRISTMAS PARTY AND IT MADE ME REALLY HAPPY.
Here's the little ditty...
A day later I found myself en route to the Island of Enchantment, the pearl of the Caribbean, Puerto Rico. My mom suggested that since she wouldn't be able to travel to Korea for Christmas, how about I traveled to PR instead. I could not say "YES" fast enough, and quickly set about finding the best priced half-the-globe ticket. And landed immediately placing ourselves on a beach. More perfection.
