I had a bout of homesickness this week and it was triggered by the strangest thing. Remember how I was actually able to buy capris and use a dressing room? Well that did it. I was elated by the discovery but it made me long for the easy shopping I experience back in North America where everyone isn't "free size" and as an extension it made me miss all other North American things and people.
I'm over it now but it was a tough week. I'm still frustrated with not being able to do/find certain things here but overall I love Seoul and I have never expected it to be exactly like North America, nor did I want it to be. That was the whole point of moving somewhere and trying something new. Anyway, maybe it was silly homesick trigger karma since now my new pants have been stained at work by the dreaded, deadly board markers we use. It's just a tiny spot on the back but since it's light pink/white on black pants you can see it. (T T) This isn't the first piece of clothing that has been sacrificed either. Matt lost a pair of dress pants and his beautiful (expensive!) pink shirt last week. Feck. I'm not throwing the pants out but I think I will just wear these to work and try to go back to Uniqlo and find some more. They were only $10 after all and maybe I can get some more colors... Cross your fingers for me!
Otherwise, this week has been busy but interesting. Matt has been working late a lot on account of having so many students (and therefore so many assignments, tests, report cards, etc). So I've had to fend for myself a bit. Look at the super ghetto dinner I picked up for myself the other night. Ramen noodles, triangle kimbap and a lemon popsicle for dessert. Haha! I'm glad he's switching levels and getting more free time.
