Hello Tumblr, it’s been a few days. Let’s see… nothing much to report. On Saturday night, BF and I saw “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” or whatever it was called. It was ok. Not really my cup of tea, and I was ready for it to end when it did. BF liked it though, so I dunno. We have pretty different taste when it comes to movies. After we watched that, we had some chicken and beer and went to sleep.
On Sunday we had to wake up earlyish to visit BF’s grandmother’s tomb. It was my first time to visit a cemetery in Korea. In this particular one, instead of burying everything underground, they had some stone tombs stacked on top of each other. Some of them had little plastic boxes mounted on them, like shrines. Some of the boxes had pictures of the deceased and stuff that the person liked. There were a lot of soju bottles included in them. It was interesting to see. We stayed there for a while and paid our respects, and then left to have lunch at a nearby restaurant.
BF’s stepdad always takes us to the best restaurants. We ended up at a BBQ place that had a large outdoor seating area. It was nestled back in a wooded area and there was a little stream and very traditional-looking architecture. It was shady and cool and very pleasant. I don’t know if the food was exceptional, but it certainly tasted better when eating in that atmosphere. I had a couple of glasses of beer at lunch, and after returning home, I slept for a couple of hours. BF went to get a haircut while I was napping. When he got home, we headed to Kyobo to find a new Korean text book for me. After selecting one, we went to a cafe and studied together for several hours. The textbook seems good, though a little easy, but the review should be good for me.
Anyways, I came back to Cheonan with BF yesterday. No other plans for the week ever came into fruition, and I wasn’t really trying that hard to make any. Yesterday was alright. I was alone all day, of course, but I was still feeling pretty sick. I slept a lot, cleaned BF’s house to my standards (must always do this if I’m to stay here for several days), bought groceries, etc. Today, however, the boredom is already setting in. I plan to study Korean… but it’s just hard for me to do it when I’m at home. I ought to go out to a cafe, but I’m having a really hard time motivating myself to even get dressed. Plus, I’m not sure where the closest one is.
Even if I do go out and study, I likely won’t be willing to do that for more than a few hours. That still leaves with with an awful large chunk of time to kill. I’ll probably take a nap, clean some more, watch a movie. I guess it’s good to relax like this every once in a while, but it’s really hard for me to do, haha. I’m the kind of person who always needs to be on the move! I’m going to try to embrace and enjoy this time. I know I sound ungrateful, and I know it beats going to work, but I don’t know if I can do this for 3 more days… @_@
