Bad Night.

So... it's been a while since I updated...nothing exciting going on right now... we had halloween at our school and it was pretty cool... pics soon... but other than that nothing... but it's okay...

until last night happened... i got locked out of my apartment... my own fault.  i left my key at my school with my Korean homework and well... it was like 12am.  i was so upset at myself and still am... my eyes are puffy (like it's bad...) and i'm worn out... i'm glad tomorrow i dont have school... hopefully i can sleep in a little.

a few other things wrong that upset me a little... i had my 1st hot shower in like a week this morning cause my friend, Rosie, let me crash at her place last night... even while i was  a crying mess.  i'm home now just trying to figure out if i should nap first or what... and when i walked in, i tested my heater box and well... it's still not working... i've had my manager's assistant come look at it but they seem to think i'm an idiot and that i just didnt push the button to turn it on... well guess what!  i've been here for close to 4 months... i think i've been taking hot showers up till last week... argh...
and i have 1 of 4 light bulbs working in my apartment... when i told them this they told me i need to buy new light bulbs... um what?... it was like that when i got here... i'm just scared that last one's going to go for sure...

OH yeah... and my TV doesn't really work... the smart card is expired... i haven't watched tv in like 3 months... since i got here... but now i really can't attempt to watch it cause i'm paying for it...

i'm sorry... i just needed to rant... this isn't an I hate Korea blog... i still LOVE Korea and will be here for a LONG while but this is an "i-wish-my-school-admin-would-cooperate-with-me" blog...

one high-point!  I got a new cell phone and contract!  which means guess who's staying for quite a while?!  i'll have to post a new video of how cool and cute it is!!   hehe...

well.. i'm off to think of what to do with my morning... sleep... get ready for school... or eat breakfast...

sorry for the sad blog...

my favorite song at the moment... FT Island:  Raining  (from their 3rd Japanese Released Album)...



Also... you should be watching You're Beautiful and Iris... new dramas!

Awww...I hope your day off goes better than this. You just have to be persistent when it comes to having a problem fixed for you. Don't let the issue go, but be tactful in your approach to getting it resolved.

We all have our bad days, just like you would have in the States so don't get to down about it.

Oh...I posted on my blog, but yes I am watching You're Beautiful and I love it sooooo much. It is like the laughter hour for me. It is just a really fun drama to watch!!

Feel better!!!

Helllooo

Ah we all have those days. The problem really is they don't truly understand what it is like for us here when we first get here. They don't know that living in Korea is sometimes like living in opposite land. Sure we could replace the light bulbs ourselves..but what kind of light bulb is it? Where do we buy them? How do we change them? Keep pestering them is what I have to say. It's their duty to help you. Check out in your contract if there is something about understanding each other's culture.

Also if you like I can have my boyfriend and I come over to check the heather thing. Maybe he can explain it better in person.

When your bosses came over did they actually test it or just tell you what is what? Ask them to come over and test it themselves.

Anyways I am still free if ya want to get together. ^^

Ah, yes, Korean heaters. In my first apartment it would go out for weeks at a time, and in my second apartment, even when it was working at 100%, it would still only give me about 3 minutes of hot water, unless I left the water at a virtual trickle.

Fun, aren't they?

Why am I here??? said...

Oh dear we all have those days! Keep on your school about the heater! Feel better ;)
