Hello friends and family!
I haven't written in awhile because I had another cold. It's getting pretty cool here and I'm dealing with it the hard way. I'm okay now and I'm also a little excited. I finally realized that I do in fact have a deviated septum. I diagnosed myself via Google. It's a $4,000 surgery to fix it back home and only a couple hundred here. I'm going to look into it further once I get my insurance card. I think this will cure my chronic sinusitus and I'll basically have a better life. It's an in and out procedure and it'll only be about five days to fully recover. I'm hoping this will happen at this exact time next year when I have a week off for Chuseok. This holiday is HUGE! It's the Korean Thanksgiving. This means everyone goes to their grandparents' or parents' homes to celebrate together, eat food, and give thanks to their ancestors. For us foreigners, this means we'll be living in a ghost town. Everyone is gone for the holiday, businesses close down, basically the city is put on pause. We can take city buses or subways and don't have to worry about crowds. This is a big deal. We have big plans.
