Shower In The Dark?

First off, I have to start by saying that I am very thankful to have my own (free) apartment in Korea.  My school provides me with an apartment and cellphone as a part of my contract! Woohoo!

That being said, I am still learning to love my bathroom.  My bathroom would be considered a 'half bath' back home as it's just a little room with a toilet and sink.  But hold on, what's that connected to the sink? That's right, it's my shower head!  When I want to shower I just have to turn a little knob so that the water comes out of the shower head instead of the sink and voila - a full bathroom.  I am trying to adjust to my new bathroom.

Tip #1 : Always remember to hide the toilet paper away in the cupboard before a shower or you will end up with paper mush.

Bathroom slippers!
Tip #2 : The faucets are very sensitive!  Turning the faucet one degree usually results in second degree burns (-;    I have yet to master this skill.

Tip #3: ALWAYS remember to turn the shower knob back to it's original place or the next time you try to wash your hands or brush your teeth, you get a cold shower.  You would think I'd have learned after the first time.  Of course not!  Four times and counting.  Old dog, new tricks?

Oh, I almost forgot the best part.  The light in my bathroom is completely broken, as in the fixture is hanging from the ceiling and the wall paper is scorched.  I heard tell that the bathroom light bulb actually exploded on the last teacher that lived here.  I should probably have someone from my school look at that.  Until then, morning showers it is!  


  1. How odd for a shower head to be in the sink.

    1. I laughed so hard reading the bathroom entry! Do you have a flashlight and duct tape?
