Sharing my thoughts and experiences about my exchange period in South-Korea

Long time no see

Oh man, it’s been long time since i posted something. My apologies about that.

There has been alot of things going on after my last post. I got a new apartment, my birthday party/farawell party for our classmates, since few of us are going abroad as well or changing class.

I had few problems with my flight tickets. First I had to change the flying dates and that cost me 125€. But few weeks ago Finnair cancelled my flight and change the dates to originals. After paying 125€ for nothing, I decided to contact them via e-mail, but they won’t answer me or anything. 🙁

After new year, I’ve been trying to get all the documents for the visa. Just got the confirmation about my finance from the bank. Still missing the recommendation letter from my University. Hopefully I get it tomorrow.

Now I have to deal with the insurance. My home insurance covers 90 days being on abroad. I’m gonna spend at least 118 days in South-Korea, this means I have to buy extra insurance for rest of the days I’m there.

Well then, I’m off the call the insurance company.

Kind regards,

Tam

 

Update

Nothing new actually.

Few weeks ago when I did the Ajou University’s online application I accidentally sent them an empty self-introduction essay 😀 oopsie.. Next day Ajou University sent me an email and told me send the filled one and I did. Six hours later they answered me that everything is okay for now, I love when people answer me so quickly ! They also told that later this year they send me a admission package. It should help getting the visa.

What else.. hmm..

Well last week I took 3 vaccinations at the same time, B-hepatitis, japanese encephalitis and influenza, my shoulders were sore after that. And I got one day fever next day, must be the influenza vaccination. All the vaccinations cost 144,10€. But still I have to take few more shots later this month. I think that’s gonna cost about 150€.

I also ordered ISIC stundent card. Reason was that I can get really nice discounts from Finnair straight flights to Incheon. Im kinda scared of flying alone so this straight flight is the only option for now 😀

This second year has been really rough, alots of homeworks, reports, projects and seminars. Im just trying to pass all the courses, whatever the grades are, but that’s not good if I ever want to go for higher educations like Master of cyber security.

Also I sold all my airsoft weapons. Not quitting the hobby, but you have to forge the iron when it’s still hot, by that I mean I had to sell them before the season is over and make time for school. Usually if I go play airsoft, I will spend 3-6 hours on the field and after that Im so exhausted and hungry, I can’t do anything actually so rest of the day I just spend watching tv or playing videogames.

That’s all for now.

Kind regards,

Tam
