Let me introduce myself as this is the first blog I have put on this site. (It is a reeeeeaally late blog but so many things have happened!) I am currently a Supply Chain Management major as a “senior.” I have changed majors too many times to count. I have never travelled out of the The United States of America…ever. I decided that if I am going travel, I will experience a completely different culture that I will make me extremely uncomfortable. Did I choose the right place. I am currently studying in Seoul, Korea at Seoul National University. Why Korea? Good question. However, the real question is why not Korea? Being a business major, many people study Chinese and Japanese. I have yet to hear anyone mention that they are studying Korea as a language. I am going for it. I will learn Korean (until the point that I can pass the TOPIK with flying colors and lean business jargon).
But enough about me and my reasons. About South Korea! I have been at the university here for about one month. This place is A-MAH-ZING! Completely different from what I am used to in Austin and Plano. Selfie sticks, Korea’s version of pizza, temples, beautiful foliage, more temples, water, 치맥, 소맥, FOOD, etc. I can seriously go on and on and on about Korea. Being here for only one month has made me realize things about myself that I would have completely looked over otherwise in my hometown. I will drop some pictures for you guys so you can get a taste of what I have experienced in the past month. I will also update you on my past adventures plus my future endeavors. (I will update this blog more frequently!) I hope you will enjoy the scenes and I will keep everyone updated~
[Just to mention, Seoul National University does a program called SNU Buddy. SNU Buddy is a student organization that matches up foreign students with a person buddy that attends SNU. There are generally 3-5 students matched up to one buddy. All of these pictures come from this organization. I used to have more pictures not from this…but I lost my camera and never ended up uploading the pictures from my camera 😦 Lesson learned real quick. And to anyone else that loves pictures but say, “I will upload them tomorrow,” don’t. Do it then and now!]
