Suitcase Issues...

Okay so i know i said i wouldn't write until I heard something about my Visa but this is important! lol sorta! i went shopping today with my lil sister and bought another suitcase to actually get the ball rolling... a little bit at least. we bought another suitcase and several other things that i needed... pretty much all i need now is work pants and winter boots/ rain boots and 2 books from Books-a-Million to get me through Seoul and south korea...lol!

anywhoo we're here for the suitcase... this is what it looks like after a wonderful idea from a friend named Dele! <-- (check out her blog!) she suggested I use this glue type stuff to make my suitcase stand out! ^_^. she will also be in Seoul in August! i'm making so many new friends on this blog! ^_^. here's a pic of both suitcases...lol!
I doubt anyone will try to steal suitcases with my name on them! hehe! and i'll also be able to pick it from the lot of suitcases in Seoul... i might also tie some ribbons on the handles...

i also went to work today and asked for some extra hours for this last week... i didn't think they'd actually give me any but they did and i'm so thankful! i was running low on money fast... and i got paid today! aah! i really was scared i wouldn't have money to survive on while in Korea... and I didn't want to ask my parents either... i already ask for too much...

anywhoo... here's some more pictures...i was transfering my "essentials" from the suitcase on the top (look at pics) that's 26" to the one on the bottom that's 25" lol... i'm hoping to use the one thats bigger for clothes... yes i'm segregating my stuff...lol

here's the result...









old suitcase on bottom...with stuff new from walmart... new suitcase in the middle that still has to get the stuff from the bottom stuffed into it... and then my books on the very top... those are on the "door" of my suitcase hoping they dont tear out of the mesh...lol!

it's only about 43lbs i believe... i'm not sure if the scale works properly but for now it does... hehe...

i tried working on the one for clothes by just putting my blankets (pretty thin... just till i can get one there) and my 1 fitted sheet... it also has my towels in it... well... i might need some extra help with my clothes cause it's getting crazy... thank goodness for space bags... (well unfortunately one space bag died... it got a tiny hole in it...) probably from when i was moving back in May and they were in the back of the truck...

anyway... things are sorta moving along and it makes it feel a bit more real... i still have my fears of my visa issuance number not coming in... i sit by my email box more than usual hoping it'll just have a red number in the corner... saying i have 1 new email... until then...

Keep in mind that you can easily buy winter stuff here. I got a great pair of boots here last winter. heh

Hi Joy,

I am new here.. where can I get some winter boots? Most of the boots I have seen at the department store where I live(Seohyun Bundang) are really expensive. Would appreciate if you can recommend a shop in Seoul. Thank you

Hi Anonymous Alphy!

(unfortunately this isn't Joy but if you click her name above you can contact her as well! she's been here longer than I have and definitely knows a lot!!)
I generally go shopping in Dongdaemun or Myeongdong! it can be expensive but I can't buy shoes here so I would probably see what Joy has to say! lol! usually i go there for other things but i've seen shoes around there!

feel free to email me with anything else! hope i sorta helped!
