Everyday Life

My days are usually quite similar. I wake up, go to school, come home, do homework and go to bed. I think it'll get better in a week or so, since I'll be done with exams. For now. I'll have them in another 7 weeks... =(

Our classroom! It's quite sparse, and the desks really suck, but it's got what we need. =)

Any day includes going to the bathroom. Many places have a mix of Western and squatting toilets. If I'm wearing heels, squatting toilets rock - I still need to work on my squatting. Koreans are unfairly good at it. You should see all the ahjumas squatting like it's the simplest thing in the world. It probably is for them, though.

The language school cafeteria sells a bit of everything. Hot meals, drinks, sandwiches, smoked eggs, kimbap, fruit and more. At 1, when classes ends, it's always so full that people find seats outside the cafeteria to eat. Koreans say that the food there is delicious, I think it's just ok.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away! These apples are so yummy! Not like the American one's my step-father always insist on buying because they're cheaper. hehe You get this type of Apples in Norway as well. =D

On the metro on the way home. It's rally cheap, but often very crowded. This is in the middle of the day, so it is relatively empty, but finding empty seats is unusual. But then, you burn more calories if you stand! Or so our Korean textbook told us, but I am inclined to think it's true.

A market! Things there are often quite cheap there, especially vegetables and fruit. They're still kind of expensive, though, but I just can't live without fruit and vegetables. I always go here to buy vegetables. People with any economic sense would do so, too. ^ ^

At home, book back dumped on the floor, ready to be studied from! Studying here I come!


  1. Miss you lots, but it's fun to see how your days are. :D

    Squatting toilets are not for me, I don't think. How do you not pee on yourself/pants?

  2. I miss you guys, too. =( I know people here, but I'm not that close to anyone. I so miss having someone to be mean to! =D

    Well, the first step would be to pull them down. I don't know how you are anatomically down there, but if everything is ok, it should be ok.

  3. peeing like that is what you do out in the forest where there's no toilet available, not in a public toilet.. :p
