So I started out the day waking up at about 2AM out of a dead sleep for no reason. I was able to fall back asleep until about 8:00 then get up and start the day. I decided that today I was going to stay in and get some much needed work done today. So I slouched around answering many emails from people asking if I had made it ok as well as answering and making a few phone calls to get a few things changed around as my cell phone wasn’t working over here.
In the Mid afternoon I decided that I needed to get some food again so I got ready and headed over to McDonalds as I wasn’t sure what my stomach was going to do. After going out to get something to eat I continued to work on some paperwork and connected with 1 other person who was already here that is studying at Konkuk University as well. I finally laid down as I thought I will just lay here and watch some TV. HA! Next thing I knew it was 2:50AM. Oops. I had fallen asleep at 7:30. So I got up and started the day by doing some reading up on South Korea and finding out a few interesting cultural things about it and it’s upcoming holidays. Finally I got ready and decided that I needed to continue working on Homework to keep my self caught up.
At about Noon after making a quick phone call. I started to venture out for the day. One Thing that hits me right after I leave my apartment is this smell that I couldn’t handle. I keep wondering what it is and why it is only around when I leave the apartment but then as I got closer to the Subway Yesterday I noticed that it was around again. (HMM! Need to figure out what that smell is. Will mention later in the blog.) I boarded Train Line 7 to Konkuk University Station. There is one interesting thing about the Subway here. It literally LURCHES you when you take off because they take off so fast. I arrived at Konkuk University Station where I was meeting one of the other students who will be studying here. We walked around Konkuk and stopped to take a few pictures as well as introduce ourselves.
