한국… 여기에 나는 온다!


So today was a long day! i've been getting myself pretty exhausted lately to be able to sleep better...thing is i have gone from sleeping at 2 am to sleeping at 12 am and having to work at 7 (yesterday) or 9 (today)...so i'm still exhausted...i'm about to fall asleep right here too...lol! i dont work till 5:30 pm tomorrow so hopefully tonight will be a long night to sleep...my aunt's newborn (about 4 months now...) has come to spend a few nights with us so...yeah...we'll see how that goes...lol!

i went shopping today after my 9-5 shift with my mom and sister at walmart...so after seeing walmart from 9-5 (with a 1 hour break in the middle...lol)...i went back to do my own shopping since I got paid today...we definitely got a lot of things for my trip...39 things to be exact...haha! i got everything from towels...alarm clock...cough drops...necessities...and anything in the health and beauty section...we were going to hit the clothes and supplies but it ws getting to be longer than we thought and we were all already exhausted...plus we were getting close to my $200 limit! I took last night to looking for coupons to help save a little money on deoderant and what-not...i am doing my shopping early because i still work there and i get a discount on non-food items...so might as well use it!! next paycheck is going towards clothes and supplies for my classroom and self! I know that by then i'll have more knowledge of the dress code and age group i'll be teaching so i should be able to shop with better understanding...

(goodness...i'm tired...)

anyways...overall it went from 194.64 to 185.14 with my coupons then went to 177.11 with my discount...not bad...i mean it helps in the end! so i saved: $17.53... ^_^.

after bringing in everything (actually after putting it on the converyer belt...) i realized it wasn't a lot!! AAHH!! UGGHHH!!! i even yelled after my sister to not put my things in the kitchen cause i thought she was carrying some of my bags...turns out it was a bag of milk... but it's okay...after i put it in my suitcase though...oh gosh...i'm definitely going to need help packing... just the things that i bought alone fit into that one suitcase...aaahhhh! i'm dedicating 1 suitcase to clothes and 1 suitcase to everything else...lol!!



i plan to give my two weeks next friday so that my last day will be the 3rd and i'll get a pretty good last check... i want to take the short weeks in july to pack and get ready and spend time with family... (and friends hopefully...)...which i dont have any currently here in my hometown cause...well i cut myself off long ago...sad days...

well i can't rekindle anything now can i? we're all so different...it's so weird!

*Fingers crossed* that my diploma arrives tomorrow or early next week...i'll be checking the mail (religiously...) every day until it arrives... it better be next week or i'm going to go to ACU myself and hunt down whoever is in charge... (yes i know who you are...depriving me of my job in south korea...) okay now that i've gotten that sorta out of my system...

i'm learning hangul! or at least trying... i found this online at youtube...you can find anything there and decided to search... Learn Korean/ Learn Hangul... it's actually simple if you can remember stuff... of course while in Korea it'll probably take me a minute to stand and stare at a sign to figure out what it says but hopefully it'll be a shorter minute than if i were to go there blindly...without knowledge of it at all...

anyway...here's the FUN video!!!! ^_^.


enjoy!!





^_^.

Ah the rush of shopping and packing. By the way you can find cough drops out here like Ricola. And they have a lot of those over the counter stuff. But if you want stuff like decongestants that is strong I would bring American stuff.

Make sure your shirts are not revealing. If you work somewhere with no dress code enforced usually the norm is to not wear revealing clothing here. You may see it out on the streets...but a low cut shirt...is a no no.
