Discovering Gongju City, South Korea

Grateful to be able to experience South Korea in a city like Gongju City. Koreans here have been so helpful since I arrived even outside the university. At times when I struggle to battle loneliness being alone in a different country, I try to think of it like “Hunger Games,” and find myself breaking into some laughter. It’s my first time overseas.

The first two weeks, the spoon became a new bestfriend, and some shop owners would give discounts also once they know you’re a university student, they help their youth out very much.

Almost three weeks now here at the Kongju National University, and somehow adjusted to cold climate, after some afternoon jogging at the oval, forcing my lungs to really adjust.

What amazes me is when Koreans see your effort, they’ll help you. They like responsible and hardworking people. Hoping the real insights and struggles am sharing here would help anyone in a state of fear and loneliness, may their spirits be lifted up.

Made some good friend along the way, ate different kinds of dinner with them, and still bring my own spoon though, and I willingfully show them and we just laugh about it now.

Last time we went biking, and I really felt old literally! And the bikes are free to rent. This is Grace, a second year, her real name is Kang Ye Eun. Whenever I ask for their English names, the younger ones would giggle to think about their names first. What a joy to be able to graduate from that state of indifference to being able to share laughter now.

Gongju City, has a river nearby our University. People come here to play baseball, and bike around during the weekends!

In South Korea, they have ID card numbers, you simply have to fill-up the form and submit the ID card, and once its verified in their system,  they’ll give you the key to the bike locks.
