I know many of you have been worried since I haven’t been active since I began my journey but I wanted to let you all know that I have arrived safely in Korea!
I haven’t said much about the trip or my plans in large part because it’s been a mad dash to get things ready for the trip while also preparing for Otakon, and then after Otakon things became even more chaotic having only nine days between the end of Otakon and my flight to Korea.
Now at last things can begin to calm down and normalize again so let me update you all on a few things.
A lot of people have asked me where I’m working, what I’ll be doing, and generally what the deal is with Korea and I’m not fully ready to get into the nitty gritty of my job but here’s the basic info:
- I am working for this really cool Korean social media company which I will be happy to talk about at length in a later post.
- I started this job part time from home, and will be transitioning to full time working from home eventually.
- In order to work full time I have to complete a 3 month training and probation period with the company here in Seoul, South Korea.
As for the trip itself I left at 6:30am on August 19th from Washington DC and arrived in Incheon Airport at 2:50pm on August 20th which translates to 6:30am 8/19 to 1:50am 8/20. Between all that and travel to and from airports just about 22 hours of travel. Not to mention that over the 48 hours surrounding that I slept a total of 4 hours so that was fun.
Anyway I’m unpacked and settling into the apartment I’ll be staying in. Since many of you missed it (likely because I’ve been quite bad about posting about it haha) I’m living with Kayla and two other awesome people in a very nice apartment (pictures and thing soon!).
For now it’s getting on it hours and I’m trying to adjust my sleep schedule so I’ll be ready to begin work on Monday.
I hope you all are well and that I’ll be able to talk with you soon. Until then!
