A weird bug I caught in my apartment. It moves really fast and flies short distances. It's about the size of my thumb. Weird. Posted by Picasa

I took pictures of my apartment when I first got it cleaned up (I wish I had taken some when it was dirty, just for contrast), but this is how it actually looks now that I got the place furnished. This is my kitchen area. Posted by Picasa

I love the phrase at the top. What sound does vitality make exactly? And what does that have to do with beer? Posted by Picasa

I went to a beach on the ocean (right near where I live) and an aquarium with my friend Lauren the other weekend. I forgot my camera, so she let me use her pictures. This is one she took of the beach were we hung out almost all day. Posted by Picasa

You can't really tell here, but this fish is huge. It's about the size or a large pig. Posted by Picasa

The best fish we saw: The freaky freaky seahorses. Posted by Picasa

Ryan's Epiphany

I just had an epiphany. My first months in Korea were a metaphor for my whole life:

The things I wanted were right there, I just didn't know how to ask for them.

My life is still like that now (both literally and figuratively), but things are getting better.

A view from my office. This one is toward the north of town. If you look closely, you can see the subway station (it's a long thing builing with a green roof). Posted by Picasa

Another view from the office. This one was actually taken from the bathroom on the same floor as my office. Posted by Picasa

The inside of my office. Posted by Picasa

The streets just outside my apartment building. Posted by Picasa

Another view from the office. This is more toward downtown Busan, although I'm far enough out you can't see the actual downtown area (which is right on the beach) Posted by Picasa
