Day 235

Friday | October 19th, 2012


I spent time before classes trying to finally figure out what my address is, both of them. I know my address (in case of fire and such), but I don’t know the zip code. Korea changed it’s system last year or the year before. I can’t remember which, but all the old zip codes are phased out now and so I fiddle-faddled my way around the Korean Postal Service iPhone app trying to get their zip code finder to work right.

Work was okay, but the free form classes are getting on my nerves for some reason. I like the not pressure of it all, but there’s some element which is now making the classes seem like more chore than fun. I can’t imagine pulling six credit classes but maybe I might go for four next semester (if I stay) instead of just three.

After work, I took pictures. There was nice light today and the autumnly weather is drying things out and shriveling plants. The stark winter weather I like to shoot in is coming.
