On the 1st
of November, three members of Yonsei global, one exchange student, and two
exchange student buddies met up to hang out. Though we were expecting to see
more exchange students, many of them weren’t able to join us, which led to just
the small group of 6 of us spending time together. Due to the unexpected
weather, it was hard for us to carry out what we had originally planned out to
do. Since we were all very excited to enjoy our time together at Hangang park, that
was upsetting for all of us. However, we did not panic, and came up with some other
fun things we could do together instead.
The first thing we did was we went to this place called, “Pizza
Factory” to enjoy some delicious pizza. At the restaurant, we ordered four
half-sized pizzas with different toppings, some spaghetti, as well as some
spicy wings. While we were waiting for our food to be served, we took the time to
introduce ourselves and share some of our interests. All of us had a good time,
since the severity of the Covid-19 situation had been holding us back from
meeting new people and being social. It was good to be out again and have the
opportunity to get to know other people.
After we finished with our meal, we talked about what we could do next as a group since it was still too early for us to go home. That was when one of students suggested that we go play some board games. We all agreed that it was a great way to get to know each other better and have fun so we decided to head there. At the board game cafe, we picked out some of our favorite games, such as Jenga and Rummikub. Some of us were familiar with the games that had been picked out while some were not. Thankfully, the board game café offered a smart system which contained the rules of all the games and because of it, we were able to pick up the rules with ease.
When we finished with our games, our team leader handed out some Yonsei goods, such as pens, pencil cases, Yonsei bears, and brooches. Even though things didn’t go the way we expected initially, we still had a great time and it was so nice to finally be able to meet new people and engage in meaningful, deep conversations about how we become who we are today.
