A Little Over A Month

That's how long I've been in Korea. Seems a lot longer though.

Let it be known that I have been working out every (week)day since May 18. That's like a personal best.

Lately though I've been eating like crap. I had burger and fries last Friday, a HUGE brunch meal on Saturday, burgers again on Monday, and today I had a decent sized roast chicken omurice for lunch, and dinner I had pizza and pasta, 2 macaroons, some "Bibim Myun," a noodle dish (my dad ate 1/2), and samples at E-Mart. You can never say no to a free sample...especially if it's a potsticker.

But I think with my workouts, I'm balancing it out? I need to not do that though, and tip the scale in favor of health. It's a shame that most delicious foods are bad for you.

I've been more social as of late. I've hung out with a few friends, and I've been going to my friend's church. It's a little far, as in it takes a long time, to get there. But, I think it's a good way to meet people. And I'm more active on Sundays again.

I'm getting anxious for classes to start. I wonder what level I'll be in. I wonder what my class will be like. I wonder if I'll be that quiet kid, or if I'll be more of a social butterfly. (past evidence puts the former at a higher possibility)

Guess I'll just have to wait and see! I take my placement test this coming Monday (6/22) then the following Wednesday (6/24) is orientation.

Now this is my minor (but kinda major) dilemma. I usually start my workouts between 10am-12pm. But my classes start at 9am till 1pm. I don't want to make it a habit of going to the gym after class, cause that's the time I want to spend hanging out with friends/making new friends.

I spend about 2 hours at the gym (workout+shower). The gym opens at 6am. Duh, there's my solution. But that's much easier said than done. The earliest I've gone is 8:30am, and that was damn hard. I can't imagine myself going to the gym at 6am, getting done by 8am, then going home to drop off my gym bag, pick up my book bag, then take the bus or subway near campus and walk up a hill by 9am. If I did that, I'd accomplish more in 3 hours, than I would in one day.

But, maybe I should start going at 6. Supposedly working out in the morning is better for you.
I can just imagine dropping a weight on myself cause I'm so tired. Or falling asleep while using the treadmill. I hope nothing like that happens.

That's my life so far. I guess I didn't really update about Korea.

Here are some things you need to know:

-Korean's (from Korea) are the most unapologetic people.
-Not everything in Korea is cheaper. I'd rather shop at a mall in the U.S. than a mall here in Korea.
-Popsicles, are WAY better here.
-So is Pizza Hut. Pizza Hut in Korea PWNS Pizza Hut in America, except it's way more expensive too.
-You don't need to hold doors for people, cause they won't hold em for you.
-You don't have to tip.
-If you're under the age of 40, sitting down in the subway car, and some grandma or grandpa is standing around, you give your seat to them. I'd hope you'd do that anywhere though.

Earlier today, I was thinking about random things that I couldn't resist.

Here are the top-5 things I cannot resist (in no particular order):

1) an itch
2) watching/reading up on cleveland professional sports
3) a delicious burger
4) checking my email and social networks
5) hanging out with friends

That was harder than I thought.

I'm so jealous of all the food that you are eating.
