We had just arrived home from school today when the doorbell rang. This rarely happens, as you can imagine. I figured it was religious zelots, but they were right out side the door (as opposed to being at the main door of the building 15 stories below) so I opened up. To my surprise there were 3 men, one with a bucket. They spoke Korean at me and smiled so I let them in, assuming they were here to fix something. They went straight to our back bathroom. We had just gotten home, so we followed them expecting to see a flood on the floor, but everything was fine. They used the bucket as a step stool to open up the ceiling.
Here the guy is checking out the pipes.
They tried to explain what they were doing in very broken English-so broken that the only words I unerstood were "no water". I tried asking follow up questions like, "So the water is off in the bathroom?" Things were getting a little messy so I called our faculty support guy Kwancho! Kwancho talked to the guy and then explained to me that these guys just finished a bathroom renovation upstairs and they were here to make sure everything is in tip-top shape. I'm guessing that "no water" means that there's no leak. So in this case, "no water" is a good thing.
Alright, not that you care, but I'm so excited about my subscription to a beauty box! I know you might be wondering what a beauty box is. A beauty box is a like a cheese-of-the-month-club but instead of cheese, it's beauty products. There's a variety of these subscriptions in the US, but in Korea there's only one: GlossyBox. This is my first time ordering something like this and it took so much work that I ended up paying our support guy, Reeon in cash and he put it on his card. Purchasing things on Korean sites is not easy when you are a foreigner.

Here's what came in my box this month! I only know what some of them are!

I'm going to work on making this absorbed now.
