Tour of My Place

I meant to do this a while ago but my place was always in such a state or it wasn't the way I wanted it. So I finally made this tour video. I know how much my parents wanted to see the place. So here is the video. Sorry about all the head twitching at the beginning, I desperately need a haircut. Let me know what you think about my first place. Oh my god it is so embarrassing to see and hear myself. I really annoy myself. Click here to see it on YouTube. I had wanted to upload it so you could view it on the blog and have it on YouTube like I did with bunny's lion dance video. But the video file was too big to upload to the blog. And apparently the video was too long because last night I left it uploading to Youtube and it was was rejected due to length so I had to edit it this morning and re-upload it (and the file is still to big to upload directly to the blog...).
Oh I watched and I seem like a crazy person and all the turquoise is very obsessive. Hahaha. Oh well I like it.
P.S. the Mucky Brown color I mention that is on the sofa cover looks green but is really a decomposing leaves sort of color. Yuck.
P.P.S. All of my furniture is second hand Ikea stuff found using Craigslist. Basically I went to the Ikea store found what I wanted and took that shopping list to craigslist it cost me a good two thirds less to buy all the furniture and I was also able to get discontinued pieces that I wanted.

My New Favorite Blog

I just discovered a blog that has instantly become a favorite. It is written but a Canadian couple from Toronto who are living and working in Korea as teachers. Most people know I am a Korea fan. Going to teach English in Korea for a few years is something I want to do... Insert crying parents here.... Like they didn't already cry a river when I decided to come to Vancouver for university. My parents know I want to visit Korea but I don't think they know I want to go teach and live there for a few years... SURPRISE!... Insert parents crying an ocean of tears here. I just wanted to share that with you. I have also been looking for a way to have the blogs I follow listed to the left right (side column was on the left on the old layout) like other blogs have. But for some reason I just haven't been able to figure out how since its not an obvious option for things to put in that side column. I am also looking for a suitable Teal colored blog template (the background and formate). I can't fond that either... Mom complained about the darkness of the background so I switched to a new one about a week ago. I like it but its not teal or turquoise so I guess I will have to see if I can get someone to code (make) a template for me.
