So I very much apologize for being away from my blog for so long. Life without internet is kicking me in the ass. Combine that with not having a tv, bed, food to cook, friends...no wait I do have friends...I think...but yeah I still come home to a half empty apartment everyday. Quite sad really but I get my first paycheck soon so I hope to add a bit more furniture to my apartment.
Work has been going great. The kids are hilariously funny at times and keep me entertained. Combine that with the fact that I love my coworkers and you have a very happy Kristen. I finally got my ARC(alien registration card) from immigration earlier. When you get to Korea be sure to get that ASAP. You can't really get a bank account or anything without it. Luckily I had a friend go with me and I got a phone my second day here. However I had a helluva time trying to get my prepaid phone recharged last week. After getting the runaround from about 8 stores in and around Seoul I finally went to Technomart where there was a LG Telecom center. Truthfully I cried a little and the lady helped me out. She was so nice and I wish her a promotion in the future. So now I finally can make outgoing calls again.
But alas everything can not go right in my life at the same time. My washing machine crapped out. I had to go downstairs to my coworker/awesomest friend ever's apartment and I currently have all of my undies drying in her room. Heehee.
All in all I have been having a great time in Pyeongchon. It's a nice combo of chillaxin place but close enough for me to go to Seoul at like 2am...like I did last week with NaiNai. I have gotten a few stares, been called Ms. Hip-hop(granted he did call me gorgeous), been waved at by cute little kids and had a lady in the nail salon rub my arm and say my skin was soft. I have been passed by/ignored by a few taxis but otherwise I haven't had any other negative experiences. I do hope to branch out beyond Pyeongchon and make friends but I'm still thoroughly enjoying myself. I'll do my best to get internet this week so I can get up some pics for you guys.
