Another one. Our director keeps ‘forcing’ us to go to these festivals that none of us want to go to. She’s not actually forcing us, we CAN say no…but when she asks us to go, she words it like “since you didn’t go to the last one…” LIKE, WOMAN, I GOT OTHER THINGS I WANNA DO. Le sigh. She does this to us because she gets community involvement awards even though she doesn’t attend any of them.
Like most of the festivals we have gone to, this one could have lasted for 1 hour, but nope. They made it an 8-hour long thing. I sound super ungrateful, I know, especially since these are free for foreigners. For this particular festival, we were only there to be taken pictures of so that they could promote the festival. A journalist followed us the majority of the time and took pictures and blah blah. I honestly wouldn’t mind going to any of these if they didn’t drag them out.
Also, I have no idea what this one was for. All I remember was that we got to put on the ‘scholar’ uniforms, decorated our own fans, wrote a poem and took a test at the end. And my friend got married. We were there for so long she found a boyfriend, dated him and got married. (Insert laugh track)
