My Apartment

My Room is the Size of My Mom's Closet! LOL

Ok, so my Mom's closet isn't this big but you get the point. My apartment is not ginormous but it's not the size of a shoe box either. I am pleased with the living arrangement my company has set me up with. It took a while to get used to but it feels like home now! I still need to add a couple of things like a fish and a plant just so I have something to take care of. If you know me, then you know both those things are bad ideas because of all the fish and turtles I have killed over the years. OOPS! First, I should continue to learn to live on my own before I bring anything that breathes in here! LOL

I don't have a walking closet. :( Now, I can't throw clothes into my closet when someone
unexpectedly shows up (not that I did that before)! All of my things are out for everyone to see. As you can see, I brought my 62 inch TV from home. I never leave home without it! Actually, all of the furniture was provided by my company. Thank you Baby Jesus! I know that some of my coworkers in Seoul received unfurnished apartments and had to sleep on the floor the first couple of days!!! Sucked to be them.

The kitchen is tiny just like me, so it's perfect! It is the first thing you see when you walk in. I have the basic necessaries: a stove, sink, fridge, and microwave. I wish there was an oven so I could bake and make lasagna and enchiladas. Mexican food sounds soooo good right now!

The bathroom is next to the kitchen in the first room. I'm still not accustomed to the shower!!! I was not expecting the shower head to be connected to the sink! WTF?! There is no bathtub to step into and shower. You simply have to push down on the tab on the sink and it transfers the water from the sink to the shower head. This may not seem like a big deal and it's not sometimes. EXCEPT, when you forget to push the tab back down to wash your hands before leaving to work. I have been in my work clothes THREE times and gotten soaked before having to leave! Grrrrrrrr On the flip side, you can take a poop and shower at the same time! LOL

The washer is towards the back of the room through the second set of sliding doors. I love how they separated the room into sections, so it's more personal. The washer is in Korean so I had no idea what I was doing the first time I washed. I got it to work by trial and error! Truthfully, I just pushed buttons until it started to wash. It sounded like a song from Mario Brothers in the old school Nintendo. LOL There are no dryers, so the clothes have to hang dry. This leaves your clothes nice and crunchy!

I have lived here for a month and my apartment is STILL clean!!! My stepdad doesn't think I can keep it clean for another month! LOL He says that my mom is going to send me our cleaning ladies because he doesn't think I will clean up after myself. LOL Thanks Jess! Honestly, I didn't think I would either. I surprised myself along with everyone back home. I clean almost everyday (something I'm not used to)! I guess it's because I know the cleaning ladies aren't coming on Wednesday. LOL
