Apartment tour is processing! Man why is uploading to YouTube so slow today????


Hello! Well it has definitely gotten colder in Seoul. The leaves have begun to finally change. This morning I am wrapped up in a blanket drinking some hot cocoa as well. Today I have plans to just stay in my area, do some grocery shopping, and film my apartment tour video! I may also film an actual vlog if I have some time. Woo hoo. My apartment finally looks a little bit more lived in now. Its not quite so bare. I would have uploaded my video before but it would have been very plain and boring! ^^ So I’ll film that this afternoon. I will also be putting up Part 2 to my Namhae trip, and a Sports Day video.

By the way for current teachers or those soon to be hired, what are some of the most common questions you have about your contract during the school year? This could concern vacation time etc… I was asked to help with a little video project so I thought I would get your thoughts on the most common concerns you have. Thank you! 

Autumn in Seoul. ♡♡♡
