The Money Balance
That price tells me I’m not allowed to eat out until Friday–that includes lunch and dinner. I’ve decided that even though lunch sometimes bombs at school, it’s another way to stop spending unnecessarily. Today’s dinner was supposed to be Korean not Outback but for some reason I couldn’t decide which places would serve me by myself. I’m looking for hearty meals that cost around 5,000 to 6,000 won during the week. I’m really into stews. I asked some Korean co-workers to go out for dinner today, but they had to stay late.
I really want to eat local! I feel it’s so much healthier to eat Korean food/make my own than go eat fast food. [But then I don’t really need to cook in if I can afford to eat out!]
I’m looking for ways to improve my bank account where there’s much more than 10,000 won at the end of the month! I save money already but feel I could do more if I really tried. That might mean sacrifice which equals limiting myself from what I think as fun: eating out, buying books, DVDs and the occasional night out [which normally results in me traveling to Seoul]. I guess I’m just struggling for a medium. After all this time I’ve been in the country!
Broken DVD Player
The one I have is at the HiMart and costs 85,000 won. To be honest I don’t want to spend the money. But it’s a must if I ever want to do anything else during the week other than blog, play guitar or read. Plus if anyone ever came to visit, movie watching is the best form of entertainment other than going to Busan.I guess I’ll just buy one tomorrow and throw the broken one out. I must come to terms that the one I’ve got is a lost cause.
