Anyway, my current job isn't easy, but I do really enjoy it. I love Korea, and I love working here. I love the Korean people. I'll get more into WHY another time. That's definitely a different post.
The area I live in, in Seoul, is Donam-Dong, in the area of Sungshin Women's University - which is on blue subway line 4 a little in the north end of Seoul. The area is great. There aren't many foreigners. It's mostly Korean families or University students. Actually, Seoul has lots of Universities and there are 2 that are about 10 minutes walking from my apartment. It's a nice area.
I take a bus to work every day, and it's about a 12 minute ride one way. On Sundays I take a bus to Dobong for church. One of my friends in Korea plays piano for the English service (which is how I found out about the church). So I went once and really liked it. Now I go all the time. It's called the Salt and Light church. Although I don't associate myself with any particular denomination of Christianity, the church I'm attending in South Korea is Presbityrian. It's similar to the Korean Church I attended for 3 years while at UIUC in the States. The bus ride to church is about 45 minutes one way... but it goes almost to the northern most part of Seoul, which is near some mountains that I love (Dobong San, Dobong Mountain). It's beautiful.
My contract with YBM is for 1 year. It will be finished starting July 1st, 2009. Right now, I'm very interested in staying in Korea and working longer than 1 year... but of course I'm not set on this. I'll decide when the time gets closer.
That's about it for now!
Here's a picture of Dobong Mountain, taken right after I get off the bus in Dobong on my way to Church!
