So a lot of you have asked me to do a blog while I'm in Korea. Even though I'm html and blog challenged, I thought I still might try. Throughout my time in Korea (south of course) i will update each day on here, showing you where I went, what I did and ate. I'm sure some of you probably are already assuming that my diet will consist of fast food and sweets. However, I'm not going to limit my experience to such foods I could easily find back in the states. Thank you all for the support and I hope that you all will stay tuned in! :)

sorry. . .

So im back, wishing i had good news to share. Ehh. . all of this stuff is overwhelming. Its difficult to get everything in order when you cant speak the same language. Even though i know a lot....! I cant hold a good substantial conversation. Im notsure what i am going to do when jennifer leaves, i didnt realize how tough it would be until i got here. Surprise...well i will still continue to pray and trust that God has my situation under control.

As for todays experience, we were woken up to a phone call from her mom. She told us to be ready in about 30 minutes. Waiting for us at the bottom of her apartment were her grandparents. (here in Korea, older people are considered to be high class, as far as treating them with great respect) Unlike America, we had to prepare ourselves to act with poise and respect. I find this way of culture interesting and reasonable. Sorry for the aside. . . . . . . .Anyways, after we met them we got in the car and headed to a traditional korean restaurant. They served a lot of food, some of which i tried but absolutely didnt like. Im sure my mom would very much like the food, and its all in small portions. After our meal, jennifer and i went to the post office. After there we went to krispy kreme and then went on home. Now im sitting at the computer with my next to do list for tomorrow and an empty brain. I feel like my time here will and has already began to change me. Thank you for being patient with me, after i begin to settle down. . . my post will be up quicker. Until then...keep praying and stay happy :)
