My Adventures in South Korea

Morning Madness!

Yet another busy week! This week we are back on the morning schedule! It’s hard, but luckily will only be for 2 more weeks (counting this one!). Afterwards we will be on the night schedule till July!:)

Through my life, I have had ups and downs with being a morning person. After high school, I was convinced that I was a night owl. I loved staying up late and sleeping in till noon. I signed up for all the college courses that would start late and I loved it! After a year or 2 of having that schedule though, I switched back to being a morning person. If I wasn’t taking morning classes then I was working morning hours. This schedule lasted all through college and after graduation. It lasted in my first jobs out of school. It lasted until coming here to Korea. I now believe I am back in the night mode. I feel fully rested each morning I can sleep in and I feel much more productive at work! I also feel like the job goes by much faster. I love having my mornings to myself and working in the evening.

Anyhow, this whole morning schedule thing is almost over!! Next week I can start my countdown. Thats all for now! Nothing else too exciting has happened. Hopefully I can do something soon though that will be worth blogging about.

Have a great week!

Enjoy my few pictures I took from last week. 🙂


Spring in Korea is eagerly anticipated! Through all the cold we now have a glimpse of spring with Cherry Blossom flavored drinks!


Model Behavior.


The one good thing about the morning schedule is getting off of work early to nap with these two. 🙂

Till next week!

    I just ran across your blog when searching how you can bring your dogs into South Korea since I have wanted to go and teach English there, and I am sooo glad I did! I love your blog! I have a question, was it easy to find an apartment there that accepts dogs? And through what means did you find a teaching position in South Korea? Thanks in advance!

      Hello and thank you for reading my blog!! I am so glad you were able to find my blog and hopefully I can answer some of your questions.

      So, when I decided to come to Korea with my dogs, I had a bit of help. My sister was here in Korea and was able to help me, but she personally went through a recruiter. I would definitely recommend recruiters because they can help answer any questions you might have. I was very open and honest about my dogs and it made the process of finding everything much easier! After finding employment, my housing was provided. Most companies will provide housing or will give a housing allowance. When applying for jobs, make sure to ask what the companies can offer you. I made sure to mention I had my dogs and asked if it was okay that they lived with me. I have heard that if a company does not allow dogs in their housing, then they will help find you a place that does. It’s very important to ask these questions though within your interviews. Hope this can help and feel free to message me with any other questions! 🙂
