Been a little while. Things have been busy, crazy, WTF and such. Some of my classes are now cancelled bringing my working hours down but I'm kind of really happy about that. It gives me more time to work on curing my insomnia problem. It also gives me more time to be a tourist finally. The weather is turning colder and there are some places I want to go visit before the weather puts me in hibernation mode. Planning to get some people together to go to Everland for my b-day which is in the next two weeks. My first spent without my significant other...sad but it's ok. It will still be a good one.

Nothing else has really been going on. Went to Oido last week which was so much fun. I ate clams for the first time ever and I got to see the ocean. I really want to go back during the day so I can take pictures and videos of the exploding clam shells we grilled.

In depressing news the value of the Korean won is killing me. Because of bills back in the states I have to transfer money but I am losing so much with every transfer. I'm pretty much only sending enough for bills and the few online purchases I want to make. I'm going to hold everything else here in Korea until there seems to be a better time to transfer it over. Hopefully that will be sometime before I leave next year...

You went to Oido? I live near Oido! Haven't gone there yet though :/.

Everland is the bomb...they have some ligers(half tiger/half lion) and you should check them out. I went last week with a friend and we didn't get to see them. Apparently, they were on holiday -_-;;

I've heard good things about Oido, but I've been to preoccupied to go since I was settling down and whatnot. I'm gonna try and ride my bike out to Oido on Sunday. I think it's past the park that is near my school.

Exchange rate = depressing. Just keeping my money here for as long as possible under there is a change...

how do you transfer money? on-line through the bank or do you have to go to the bank and ask them to do it?
