|Dishes in sink = lived in!|
- Unpacked and settled into my apartment.
- Ordered at a Korean restaurant all by myself (first sense of accomplishment).
- Bought some things for my new apartment (the previous teacher left a lot of good basic things for me, so I didn’t need to buy as much as I thought I would…nice surprise).
- Went grocery shopping.
- Figured out the bus routes I need to take (and took them for a dry run). I’m really proud of myself for this one. It’s going to be my lifeline while in Korea, so I wanted to figure this out quickly.
- Found a church (well…sort of…it’s really tiny – I was the only one in attendance today but apparently I arrived during a transition time). The pastor is American, so the services are in English… it’s called Ulsan English Fellowship. We spent about an hour just talking and then went to lunch together. He seems like a good guy with similar Christian values.

I have three really good resources to rely on: an American named Cenae who I met in the grocery store (she’s been here for 13 years), Pastor Kevin who has been here since 1995, and the teacher who I am replacing (she left me four typed pages of information and her email address – we’ve already corresponded about some additional questions I had). So, if I don’t know what I’m doing, I have plenty of people to help me out. Always good to have back-up and support! Speaking of support…
