    Helo welcom 2 my websight

Don’t worry, I didn’t die!

Hello everyone,

I know some of you are anxiously awaiting news from me here in Korea, so I just wanted to let you all know that I’m doing well and I’m adjusting to my life here reasonably well. I haven’t had a lot of time to actually sit down and type stuff yet, but hopefully with some careful planning I will soon. I’ve been meeting a lot of new people, having lots of new experiences and have been getting used to living not only in Daegu but more importantly a dormitory. It’s taking a lot of adjusting and compromises, and I’m definitely not getting enough sleep, but I’m doing my best and I’m enjoying every day so far.

Here’s a quick look at my desk, that I’ve already changed a bit to make it feel more hospitable instead of this generic Ikea-colored thing it is:


Also, here’s a picture of all the KGSP scholars of the Daegu area from the opening ceremony last week:


Yeah…there’s a lot of us.

Keimyung University is pretty huge. Just walking off campus takes about 20-30 minutes so it’s not always easy to go somewhere, but it is one of the most beautiful campuses in Korea so I’m quite glad I ended up here.

Next time I’ll tell you guys all about what I’ve been doing and I’ll show you my beautiful campus.
I’m not sure when next time will be, but I’ll try to make it as soon as possible!

      Dankjewel :3
      Het wennen aan de omgeving en de mensen is ondertussen wel gelukt denk ik…nu alleen nog wennen aan het huiswerk :p

      Hey Myra,
      actually ben ik op dit moment in Korea om Koreaans te leren. Toen ik hier 6 maanden was geweest en al het een en ander op had gepikt dacht ik dat het niet zo’n heel erg moeilijke taal was, maar nu ik elke dag 4 (or 7) uur les heb kom ik er achter dat ‘t toch zo gemakkelijk niet is.

      Als je echt in Nederland wil studeren, raad ik je aan om een goed coursebook te kopen. Persoonlijk raad ik Fun! Fun! Korean ( van SNU aan. De prijs daar is niet echt geweldig (voor deze set ben je hier zo’n 50,000 won kwijt) maar misschien kun je ‘m ergens anders ook vinden.

      Talk to me in Korean is niet slecht voor conversational sentences enzo, en het is basically gratis, dus misschien kun je dat ook eens bekijken.

Once upon a time in #Korea. 
#남산골 #namsangol #hanok #한옥 #traditional #전통 #Korean #hanokvillage #Seoul #서울 #history #historical #한옥마을 The #seoulillustrationfair was as wonderful as ever. I found loads of great #art, #illustrations and #cards and even asked for the #artist signature on some of them.

The #SIF is still on until this sunday at Hall D of #COEX in #Gangnam, #Seoul, so don't hesitate to stop by and see the work of some of #Korea's most amazing artists.
