The 7th floor

View South Korea 2010 on trang87's travel map.

I live on the 7th floor, which is the top floor.
Here there is a lounge, the reason I went into that room was to get water because there is a water purifier there.
But as I went in it was trash and messy every where, i mean come on it is a public area and the last thing is that on this floor it's all girls. I know I'm messy but in my own areas and not trash and not in public. I would be embarrassed.
I'm in my room at the moment and too lazy to go out because it is nice and warm and the sun is right out front my window, have to buy food later as well but it's on floor B2 which is 8 floors down and it takes a while before the elevator/lift gets don't there.

I didn't realize that the campus area was so big as well and there are a couple of uni around. But then again there are around 10 million people in this city. Oslo is not comparable to Seoul, this is just the capitals not even thinking about county wise. What about Japan? I was looking at the world atlas and facts that were in it before I left home, the atlas was published by the times but not sure whcih year, but anyhow Tokyo was the largest capital of population beating NYC, Washington DC, Bejing etc... yes the largest with 20 million people, double the population of seoul. But the world is not so big really, people always have a connection with other people anywhere in the world and there is always something in common.

My room mate went out yesterday and haven't come back yet. Hope she's ok and not lost in Seoul, well at least she knows the language. She was going to see a friend in Bokjeong it is quite far from here. I'm glad I have my ipod touch with me and all the apps that I downloaded before I left home, it is quite helpful with the subway map, which bus to take to get some where. But I'm sure I'll get lost for maybe 15 min, I always do when I'm new. I am used to it now.

What to do on a Sunday though??
Friends...not so many yet but I don't really care, just want things to start.
Might take cooking class at the uni with the language program, maybe at least then I don't have to buy food. Hmm, or maybe I do. We'll see, think it'll be fun whatever after school activeties I choose.

I just read on my mobile networks homepage that in South Korea and Japan you have to rent a phone to use their network or fill out a registration form to get a local number. I should have read that before I left. But luckily I know someone who knows someone here to help me with that, I don't need it right now, but it would be nice since I am staying here a while. Maybe I should do some more reaserch, I should have done it when I was home in Norway but I'll survive just takes it as it comes, no need to stress about things.

I'm glad that I didn't bring too much stuff, my side of the room would be horrile but I didn't have a choice on minimizing my suitcase and bag, KLM only allowed me with 20kg to check in and 10 for overhead cabin.
