Hotel Cape Town (aka "Is that bed just a fitted sheet over a slab of concrete?")

The photo above is the hotel that I'm staying at. It's the Hotel Cape Town in the Gangnam district of Seoul.

The training today was pretty intense. The trainer, Julie, was pretty full on. I guess I could say that she kinda kicked me in the butt and made me realize that this is gonna be a 'real' job. There's no room for slacking when you're in the classroom. It's a good thing though, this is just what I need to get out of the lazy liftie mindset. At the end of the training we had the grammar test; I was really scared of it, but apparently I passed! Woohoo! I was so nervous taking it. My hands were shaking and it was funny that the first thing that came to my head was that I wished I could have a beer to slow them down! It was like I was trying to ask the girl I've had a crush on out for a date! I guess it's just been a long time since I've taken a timed test that mattered that much.

This afternoon, I tried out the subway. I went from here, Gangnam, to the City Hall. It took a lot longer than I thought it would, but it really wasn't too bad. My only trouble was that when I put my ticket in to leave, it wouldn't let me! I didn't know what to do! I had the agent guy help me the first time it happened, but I didn't figure it out because it happened again on the way back! That time I just snuck out. Anyway, maybe I'll just have to have someone else show me.
