|I thought having one burner would be an ordeal since I love to cook. But it turned out to be ALL I needed!|
|There are a lot of animated characters in my Kitchen 🙂|
|Just a quote I found online. I love it! I printed it and used pastel chalk to color the paper then put it in a plastic slip cover and put it on my wall. Under it is the list of books and temple the young monk in training gave me after my temple stay.|
|I keep my table set for two… just to make my place feel inviting (and to be prepared)!|
|I’m always burning incense. I love the smell. And it adds to the calm and relaxed mood I try to set when I return home.|

This is actually the doors to my free standing closet. I love elephants! The chain on the left is from India and the one on the right is from Nepal. Two places I will visit soon. They were given to me by awesome friends who have traveled to both places. The necklace was a gift from the monk where I did my first temple stay. When working in Korea as a teacher there is no telling how your apartment will look. If you are a public school teacher you should have the option in your contract to forego the schools apartment and find one yourself if you don’t like it. And they should give you 300-400,000\ a month to pay for the place. READ YOUR CONTRACTS THOROUGHLY! I lucked out and my place is fairly decent. But you have to decorate your space and make it comfortable! It will become your safe haven when the days are just too much 🙂 Kitchen and living space decorations were purchased from the Daiso store (most of the items), Home Plus and Lotte Mart. Do you like decorating small spaces? If you are in Korea already what is your best tip for decorating your studio?
Oh! If you are curious about the sleeping area you can see that here.
