So it’s been a while (a year to be exact) and I moved to Seoul at the end of February. I realized that I never posted pictures of my first apartment so I’m combining the old apartment and the new on into one post. I never really got the chance to decorate my old apartment because I was afraid of accumulating too much stuff and when I moved to Seoul, I still had too much stuff. But less words, more pictures!
I can’t even begin to talk about how overwhelming it is to move to another country and I haven’t even moved into my apartment yet. My knowledge of the Korean language is only Hello and Thank you. However, I do know how to read Hangul so that’s been a big help even if I can’t understand what I’m reading most of the time.
In order for me to compartmentalize the many emotions I’m feeling I’ve made a list (yes another one!) of things that I want to accomplish in terms of me growing as a person. The one fear I have is completely shutting down and not interacting with anyone at all…followed by only interacting with foreigners, while that is a nice safety net, I want to interact and make friends with the people who actually live here.
I am disappointed in myself. I thought that I would be able to consistently post something once a week. But you know, life happens and I get distracted and the blog post just doesn’t happen. I know that I’m supposed to have several posts in a vault just in case stuff like this happens but I’m behind. Obviously. So for today, I will talk about growing.
