My work week has been going by really quickly as of late. The week feels quick. I have no serious problems with any of my classes. The week just flies by… kind of intimidating in a way. It’s starting to feel a bit more like Christmas here in Daejeon. Tacky decorations are up and Christmas-themed products are available for purchase.
My latest buying obsession is EXO! Nature Republic is having this promotion (although not really a real promotion) where you can collect EXO-themed merchandise if you buy a certain amount at their store. Spend $30 and you get a calendar. Spend $50 and you get a photo book. Spend $120 and you get the stand-up doll collection. So of course, I spend $160+ dollars on make-up to get both the stand-up doll collection AND the calendar… why I need 12 EXO stand-up dolls? I’ll never know. But I have ’em 🙂 I also purchased their official diary and 2014 calendar. My next EXO-related purchase will be a knock-off planner. I prefer one that is made specifically for 2014 featuring all 12 members… the tackier, the better. Such item can only be found in either Namdaemun or Myeongdong. So until my next weekend trip to Seoul, I’ll have to make due with my less tacky, but more expensive EXO merchandise.
