Fun stuff aside, I am more or less settled down in Seoul. Feels like I’ve been staying here for a long time even though it’s still less than two weeks that I am here. If you are thinking of coming to Korea for exchange, I suggest you know some basic Korean so you can navigate yourself and read some road signs and stuff.
The first week or so was spent buying stuff for the room such as pillows, comforters, floor mat, hangers, etc etc. You can go to E-Mart at Wangshimni or Daiso at Sincheon to get such stuff. There is also a Daiso at Anam area so there you can get cheap stuff to make your room more comfortable.
Registering for classes was quite a headache. All the exchange students have to go the International One Stop office to get our classes and the queue is forever long. Furthermore, when I go to a supposedly English Sociology class this morning, the professor started speaking in all Korean and told exchange students to drop it if we can’t understand Korean. I was like…wtf. Now my timetable is kinda screwed up with Thursday ending at like 8pm. Now I can decide if I should continue Korean Speaking Beginners II or drop it cause I can’t transfer the credits….
Lastly, shopping in Seoul is sosososososooo awesome. I will probably do a shopping post soon because Korean Fashion is so pretty but do drop a message if any of you would be interested in knowing more about fashion and shopping places in Seoul.
