Remember how I said that before this trip you probably would never have caught me in karaoke bar? I would have said the same thing about a dance club too, haha. But when in Rome… A bunch of us from work wanted to go check out the local dance clubs here because we’ve heard that […]

I’m doing great :) I still love (some of) the food (can’t get enough of that pork soup!!) and I’m adjusting pretty well to the culture, learning bits here and there. Work is going great, I really feel like I’m doing exactly what I always wanted to do. All in all life is pretty good. […]

Note: I know it’s been three weeks since I’ve last posted an entry on this blog… I’m sorry! While being intensely sick with what I think was a sinus infection, I didn’t feel much like writing.. Then after being sick, finally being able to go out and do things, and spend some time at work […]
