Moving once again

We have just accumulated too much crap. It is kinda insane really. Time to start getting rid of things again. More of that “shedding”process.

When I say mostly, I mean the vast bulk of our boxes are sitting in the new place but we aren’t officially moving in till tomorrow. We still have some cleaning and a bunch of things to bring. Don’t know how we are going to do it but such is life and donuts. It will work out….always does.

Koreans have this strange notion of privacy….or lack thereof. They asked for our apartment code, which means they want to come in and inspect the place. Typically they do this without letting you know. Screw that. We gave them a fake code. We then got a call saying the code did not work. Heh. We told them we will change it to that code the day we move out. Screw them going into our place without asking or us being there. We’ll just give them the current code. Really don’t feel like figuring out how to change it again. Got enough of my thoughts and energy spread out/used up as it is.

The new building does not have an elevator. Many of the older places don’t. I was not looking forward to moving all those freaking boxes up 3 flights of steps. Geeze, my legs are killing me as it is just going up and down one flight of steps to the truck this morning.

The first pic is all the crap on the rental truck in front of old place. Because of the stupid volume of crap, we needed a “platform truck” to get it up to the third floor of the new place. It was worth the extra $100 to do it!

Then I had to just kill time till the next bus back to our old place so I can organize/clean for the final moving process the next day. Buses aren’t very common in the new place. Had to wait nearly an hour. Oh well.

Well, now we are all moved in. Will eventually get all the crap unpacked over the next few weeks.  Previous foreign teacher left all kinds of stuff, dishes and such.  So now we have even more crap!  Gonna figure out what belongs to the school and the rest we are going to donate or sell.

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
