I apologize for the lack of posts since I started this blog. I'm a little intimidated by the fact that so many people will potentially be reading what I write. Will I be witty enough? Interesting enough? Cool enough? I kind of feel like I'm back in Junior High - blogging style. This has also been a bit of a whirlwind week because I've been teaching on my own since Monday. It's been great but definitely exhausting. I have a huge new appreciation for what my Mom has been doing for over 20 years. Go Mom! It makes me really proud and feels awesome that I'm living out her legacy, over 5,000 miles away. I will be posting pictures of my school and some of my students after this one.
Ok, on to the apartment! It's much bigger than I expected and I'm lucky enough to have a separate kitchen/laundry area. Most places for teachers here in Korea have a very studio-ish setup, so I feel like I hit the jackpot!
Here is the view when you walk in the front door .... the kitchen area is through the sliding doors
The view from my kitchen, and the kitchen itself ... the washing machine is below the stove - crazy! There is a rack above the window for drying my clothes. There is a pulley system so you can raise and lower it for easy access. So efficient!
Here is my bed (the pillowcases I brought even match the comforter that Brittany left me!) and the view from my bed. I have lots of storage space which is great. The TV still doesn't work (no cable) but hopefully it will be fixed by Monday.
The view of my apartment from the kitchen. Milo is on my bed, doing what he does 99.99% of the time - sleeping! The front door/foyer is on the left ...
My bathroom with the funny shower head above the sink. I actually prefer this over a separate shower now - really! It's so easy to keep the bathroom clean and you have tons of room and don't feel "boxed in." I'm a convert ...
Here's another one of Milo. He has no idea that we're in Korea - for all he knows we moved to Beaverton - ha!
That's it! There's also a little foyer-type area when you walk into the door, but it's not very exciting. I put my shoes on the floor (it's Asia, you take off your shoes when you enter someone's house) and there is more storage space.
I'm hoping to get a few more things on the wall in the next few weeks. It's very cheery though, with lots of light. I'm very happy in my new home!!
