Blogging for reals

Well, I'm here! In Korea and in blogger land, which to me are both foreign. I mean, I've been reading blogs for years now but I never had the guts and/or excuse to start my own. I guess living abroad for a year is a pretty good reason?
So far it's been amazing. I've only been here for 4 days but it feels like much longer. I was thrown into my job the day after I arrived but I think that was a good thing. Two days of training, a weekend (Halloween craziness, no less!) and I start teaching on my own tomorrow. Eeek! I think I'm ready though. Of course I'll probably show up 2 hours early just to prepare because I'm an intellectual perfectionist like that.
Halloween was a blast. Went and saw a friend's band play into the wee hours of the morning and managed to stay out until 2am. That's huge for jet-lagged Lindsay standards, but weak sauce by Korean standards. Oh well. My late-night stamina will just need some practice.
I've spent this lazy Sunday puttering around my apartment and going for a walk around the city. I'm still getting my bearings but things don't blur into a sea of neon anymore like they did the first few days.
I'm having trouble with my Korean washing machine which is frustrating, but there's a learning curve for everything. I'm hoping one of my coworkers can help me tomorrow.
That's really all for now. As soon as I figure out how to post pictures on this thing, I will. Emily, can you help??
