I took pictures when I first got here mostly out of shock at my new apartment's size (or lack thereof) and it's ammenities - the shower that I was taller than, the floor that drained, the fridge I'm taller than, and the washer that I thought didn't have a lid (only to find that it folded out), the air conditioner with a remote, and the boiler button that I pressed in August when I first got here thinking it was central heat and air (well..that's the way it worked at home). I've certainly come a long way in this experience, and thought I'd post new pictures of my apartment. :) it's changed a bit from those first few days.
Any mail I receive from friends and family becomes wallpaper, I brought pictures, but my friend Kathryn mailed me more - so I've got friends and words of encouragement all over, I acquired a make up stand and 2 chairs when Tonic left, bought a coat rack that reaches from my floor to my ceiling and holds a ton of hanging things! Leigh even found a couch for me on the side of the road not far from my apartment. Korea is a pretty wealthy country, and when people are finished with furniture they just place it on the street. We spent an evening carrying it to my apartment and scrubbing it off.
