Happy New Year!

It has definitely been a while since I last updated.  Not a lot has happened.  Some good things and not so good things have happened since last time.  But I'll just talk about the good things today~~

Since last time,

  • I've finished my job~ Yay!

  • I registered for my online class.  woohoo~
  • I got things worked out with my visa and picking up my new visa on monday~oh yeah!
  I'm really excited to be done with work and have some time off.  Money is a bit of a stress but in all, I'll be fine.  Right now, I'm just waiting for my paperwork to come in and then I can sign the contract with my new employer.

One "not so good" thing that happened last week is that we gave back our cats.  Unfortunately, Youngsu had become very allergic to the boys.  And because they shed so much, we couldn't keep the house clean enough, fast enough, to keep from affecting Youngsu.  He went to the doctor and got medicine but unfortunately that didn't help either.  ㅠㅠ

So we made a hard decision to let them go.

We are able to keep Toto because her hair doesn't shed as much.  We both felt really bad to have to do that but it was the last resort.  We both hope that my boys are doing well and can find a nice permanent home soon.

If you are interested in adopting a cat, please check out Nabiya Cat Shelter on Facebook and they can help you find a new friend.

In all, we hope to start the New Year off on a good note and hope everyone has had a Happy New Year so far~~

I'll update more when there's something to update about~~


So the last time I updated, I talked about being let go and what could possibly be the next steps for me.

Well in the last week, I've moved to Nowon, put up a Christmas tree, and figured out a little about what I want to do in the next two months.

Last Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, Youngsu and I set out on the hunt for a new apartment.  This will be the house that after we get married, Youngsu will be moving into, so we needed something that would be big enough for two people and 3 pets.

well to our luck, the last realtor we talked to happened to have what we were looking for.  I'm happy to say that I'm really happy with this place and can see myself living here for some time.  At the moment, our contract is for 2 years so it's officially mine ours.

Here's some pictures of how we decorated it and how spacious it can be~~

The kids like it and we're glad~~  More pictures will come as we finish up other places~~

For the future plan, I've decided to take a break.  I haven't really had a break since I started working at around 16 or 17 and think a few months to study Korean and just hang out would be nice.  I really want to try to focus on studying more and getting better at speaking Korean.  The reason that I'm really laid back about not having a job at the moment is because theres a possible job already lined up for March.  Just waiting for my paperwork to come in and then I'll be on to sign a contract.

For now, I'll be finishing my contract in two weeks and then dealing with immigration and then the relaxing can begin.  Maybe I'll be blogging a lot more then~~

I guess we'll have to wait and see!

Have a good one!

On the search again...

And so... the search begins again.

It looks like I'll be looking for a new job once again.  I was informed on Friday that my school wants to change me and my co-teacher because our program is not doing well.  Therefore it's our fault.

So I have to find a new job and a new house by the end of December.  Youngsu and I kinda see this as a blessing in disguise cause well... I can move closer to him in Nowon and since this school didn't turn out as I wanted, I can find a better job with higher pay (hopefully~)

At the moment, we're just trying to figure out how things will work because it seems that I won't be getting a few things that I would normally get if I finish my full contract.  So we'll see.

Apartment hunting seems to be the most fun at the moment.

As it seems we'll be busy for a while and strained on money... I might not be blogging as much but as soon as we do something fun and get moved and settled... I'll be back!

 See you all soon~~

도봉산~ Dobong Mountain~

Last weekend, after fighting off a bit of a what I thought was a random cold but actually turned out to be a lymph node swelling in my neck, Youngsu and I went hiking with his mom and brother at Dobong Mountain.  It was a really great area and although it was one of the easier mountains... I have to admit... it was tough.  His mom is an absolute PRO at hiking and I tried my best to keep up with her but alas... it was impossible.  So Youngsu and I stayed behind and took our time going up the mountain.  A lot of it I think had to do with my problem so I think hopefully next time I'll have an easier time keeping up.  Here's some pictures from our mountain trip~
