Having never lived abroad for quite so long before – nor having had an apartment of my own in which to accumulate a ton of stuff – I’ve never had to deal with the process of getting rid of everything.
And let me say, having never been properly prepared to anticipate this moment, I’ve let myself accumulate a ton of crap.
Perhaps luckily, the foreigner community here is rather insular, meaning everyone knows each other and frequently checks the What’s For Sale In Cheongju Facebook page. Luckily for me, this means my last minute postings have managed to draw some bites. That and my spamming of the page.
Perhaps a bit of forethought would have been helpful though in that it would have meant I’d be doing much less running around in a jam packed and ever claustrophobic schedule. The thought of getting to Canada is more blissful than ever knowing that it’ll mean all this will be dealt with and over.
To keep track of everything, I’ve been keeping obsessive post-it notes on who’s buying what and when they’ll pick it up.
Not sure if this is keeping me sane or aiding in my madness but I think it’s helping get rid of it all and that’s all I care about now.
In other news, I got my phone’s camera lens fixed today! Check out how gorgeously sharp the last two photos are. Cost a pretty penny (₩49,000 or about $50), but I figured it would 1) be cheaper than in Canada, and 2) be fixed far faster than in Canada. I can’t necessarily prove the first, but certainly the second was true: it took barely half an hour.
For now though, I must go out and run to meet someone else to unload my beloved pink body pillow on them. May they appreciate it as much as I did.
