It's been awhile since my last update, but I've been pretty busy with work. I'm pretty sure I'm sleeping right now as I type this. I'm sleep-typing. Comes with the territory of being a Kindergarten teacher.
Anyway, as I continue to immerse myself into the Korean culture, I find that I am slowly starting to blend in. You know, minus my blonde hair.
Another thing I've noticed is that my style has changed. I wear leggings with baggy sweaters like most of the women here do, with giant scarves. And when I say scarves, I mean the big thick knitted ones. They're amazing.
Also, I've started getting more into make up. I've stated before that I was never one for make-up back home, but now, because of the price I've gotten more into them. Also, one other thing that I forgot to mention....
THE FREE GIVEAWAYS! OH MY GAWD IT'S LIKE CHRISTMAS!!
I've gotten a lot of free things from cosmetics stores, and the more you buy, the better the prize.
No really, I do. I jump around my room squawking like a maniac. I get bored. And let's just say that my walls are very thin....
DO NOT FEAR CITIZENS! OWL GIRL SHALL DO HER BEST!!
Moving on, before I embarrass myself further....
My bunny sleepy mask. I've never needed to use one of these until now. My window is huge, like, half the size of my room, so the sun shines in like its coming at me with a vendetta. So, on the weekends when I actually see the sun when I get up, I use it to a get a few extra hours of shut eye.
It's also one of the cutest things I've ever seen.
This guys name is Rilakkuma, and I believe he originates from Japan. All of the kids over here love him, and he has a ton of merchandise.
He is cuddly, and I love him and I hug him and he is mine.
Another thing I've noticed about Korea is the outrageous prices on electronics and appliances.
So, after weeping at the prices of appliances, I decided I needed a pick me up, so you know what I did?
That's right, I looked at puppies!
Another thing about Korea that very different from home are it's advertisements and store names.
What is this magical place, and what does it do?
Well, I guess I'll end this post on a big positive note.
Until next time amigos!
