When I read the one word daily prompt for today I literally laughed out loud, although it wasn’t funny in a funny way, it was a: “seriously, really why are you doing this to me!”.

I took the day off work today because I can’t stand driving in the traffic caused by snow and we were expecting 15-25 cm today. The traffic would have been a perfect way to ruin my day and make me angry before I even got to work. Since I had the day off I slept in, no way was I going to get up at 5 am so I woke up around 9. As per my morning routine the first thing I do is check my email and hope to have news from my recruiter. Low and behold I had an email from him this morning…

And well, I’m sure you can guess the kind of answer I received considering the word for today. My application for an E2 visa for Korea was officially rejected. Such a lovely way to start my day off which was suppose to be a good day. I check my email while still in bed, well let me tell you I didn’t feel like getting out of bed after reading that email! But I did because now I have to find a way to get what I want, I can be an annoyingly persistent person.

I sent some questions to my recruiter to see if there is any other way I can go teach in Korea, but I don’t have very high expectations on his response. I will continue my own research into how I can do this, I am very motivated so perhaps I can find a way. (I am open to suggestions)


Photography – sunset

I have a bunch of pictures I took when I went out to try some settings on my new camera, I thought I would share them with you all. Starting with a¬†sunset! I will also start the developing your eye II shortly but I plan to go out and take all my photos before starting my posts (yes that’s probably considered cheating haha).

Korea update… Still waiting

Actually I don’t have much to say about this, but since it’s been a while I thought some people might want to know if there was any news. Sadly no, I still have no news! I will be emailing my contact next week again to see if he has received any updates. Oh I so hope there is some news, at this point I’ll take any news goo or bad. OK I obviously want positive news, but the waiting is killing me so at least if I have news I won’t have to wait anymore and I’ll be able to move on.

Day 10: Architecture

Here is day 10, a little late again but I was going to an interesting building (just not on the actual day I was suppose to post…). Hopefully you all find it pretty and interesting anyway. This picture was also suppose to be monochrome but I haven’t played with this feature very much and couldn’t figure it out so you will get the colour version. The location of the building makes it difficult to get an outside shot with traffic (especially during rush hour) so I took a shot of something that is important to me.


Day 7: Big

So this subject can’t be covered with my original picture, well I suppose it depends how you interpret big. I mean the water is actually a river and it’s definitely big. Anyway I decided to interpret this one in my own way. There aren’t many big things near my house, and there was just no way I was going to go downtown (or anywhere for that matter) I’m just too tired so I went through some of the pictures I’ve taken previously. I then decided that I would take something small that has been made big. These are the only macro pictures I’ve taken so far, I would have taken some new ones since I still have the plant but it hasn’t bloomed yet…
