To wish to be well is a part of becoming well. ~ Seneca (Roman philosopher, mid-1st century AD)
So I didn’t do much this week since I was sick, but I did get some pictures of various things. First I went to Home Plus and picked up a few things as I mentioned before.
Inside the shop there are TV’s on various shelves. I think they advertise stuff, I am not sure.
Also, all the stores are built multi levels rather than flat so you have to ride an escalator with your cart. I heard the Costco around here is seven floors and the carts lock into place when you get on the escalator, I will have to find out!
Next on the way home I stopped at a walking path and sat under a rainbow colored shelter.
The next day I decided to look around the seventh floor where I live and I came across these paintings on the walls between floors; pretty cool.
One of the days I also went on a long walk and came across a few things. First, there is exercise equipment everywhere. Not only in Central Park, but also in small parks next to the various apartments.
At one of the entrances to Central Park I came across a sign showing what stretches to do before exercising.
This is the street right below my apartment at night. Same shot as the one I showed in the daytime last week, except this is from the other end and at night.

Thursday, one of my second grade students, Tony, brought a gift for me. He said his mom said to give it to me. It was a package of crackers.

Kids like to bring their teachers gifts all the time. Wednesday one of the students brought one of my coworkers a pack of muffins. Some of the gifts are really random, but food is ALWAYS appreciated by the teachers!
Oh! That reminds me. My new friend Danielle had asked me if anything in Korea has surprised me yet, I have to say the lack of personal space still surprises me every time. That picture shows Daniel and the maintenance guy standing super close as they look at the thermostat. People tend to naturally gravitate into each others space as they stand still.
Finally I was sent to the doctor so he could ask me questions and give me feedback and what they had so far. This whole deal cost 120,000 won. This kind of sucks since I barely have any money left and I don’t get paid until the 10th, and it is only around two weeks’ worth. It is going to be a tight month and a half!
Last night it rained and there was tons of thunder and lightning, it was awesome! I miss seeing lightening, in WA you don’t get to see it! It was one of the things from AZ I missed in WA. As I sat by the window looking down seven stories to the street I realized, I am not afraid of heights! I knew I wasn’t, but it was cool to sit that high up without and worries.
That’s it for now. I am still sick as a dog and am only going to wander out for short walks and to go to E-Mart to get some groceries for the next week. I need to rest so I can get better, being sick is a drag!
