So, I’ve been in S. Korea for about 10 days. Life is going extremely well– and for the most part, I am happy. However, I did happen to catch a pretty severe cold this week and have been trying to rest as much as possible. We aren’t really able to take off for sick days, so I don’t want to push my body any more than necessary (i.e. no running!).
I did manage to make it out today, but only because I was desperate for coffee. However, coffee here is expensive and the cheap stuff is horrible and instant (how can people drink that?!) so I decided to buy a coffee maker for my apartment. Anyway, it was drizzly and I was feeling miserable, but after some walking, miming, and pointing I was able to purchase a french press and a bag of freshly ground coffee beans. The moment I got home, I boiled some water to give my press a test run… mmm
I felt a little bit better while drinking my coffee and I sat down to read my favorite blogs. I ended up learning that I won Goodcleanfood’s Lululemon running skirt giveaway (thanks again, Goodcleanfood!), at which point I felt much, much better! I’ve never won a giveaway before, and I am so excited about this one. For all you veggies, vegans, and runners– check out her blog. Filled with recipes and inspiration!
In other news, I just finished making dinner: homemade ottogi seaweed soup. Yum.
Waiting for the soup to cool. Listening to Beefheart… All in all, a pretty great day.
Here I am, celebrating my good day with the typical “Korean” photo pose:
