What I learned about Korea: In Korea, especially for foreigners, meeting new people comes so naturally. In the United States, when people go out they typically go out only with their friends and don’t mix groups unless there is an overlapping friend. In Korea, so many times people just introduce themselves, we talk for a while, I get their number, and we meet up for drinks the next day. The situation would seem much different if I were to ask for a guys number in the US that I had just met that night.

What I learned about myself: This week I learned that I have very poor self control for candy. In the United States I rarely eat sweets of junk food because I don’t buy it. My family sent me jumbo packs of chocolate and other candy. I found myself subconsciously eating almost 8 pieces a day. The only solution was to donate the candy as community candy.
