Home sweet home

You've been waiting on pins and needles to see my apartment!  I just know you have.

I am very blessed to have a two-bedroom apartment.  Very blessed and very grateful.  I'm the only EPIK teacher in Daejeon that has least that I know of.  However, everyone else has an air conditioner which I don't.  I'm learning to live with it.  The 2 fans Rachel left me, and the 2 heavy-duty fans that I bought really do make a big difference.  I'm trying my best not to have to buy one.  Ask me again next summer...

Here is a video I just took today of my apartment!  What do you think of my little home away from home?  I have done my best to make it homey and comfortable...a place where I can relax at the end of a long day...a place where friends feel comfortable hanging out and welcome anytime.

Also, I found out some tips on sending packages to Korea from a new friend of mine who has lived here for a year.  She and her mom have learned this through trial and error.

  1. Use the regular postal service.  It will take about 2 weeks to get here.
  2. Never go above 4 pounds.  Even if you have to send more than one package, never let the package be more than 4 pounds.  They will weigh it there and take out things if you need to.
  3. On the customs form, put the value at no more than $50.
  4. You can use a box or the bubble wrap envelope.  Just be sure you pack it well.
I just wanted to let you know just in case you send me a package.  Thanks!
