Hye Jin Kim
So Archstone Avenir apartment 722 made a new friend this week, her name is Hye Jin Kim, but just Kim to us Americans. She is from South Korea and was visiting her boyfriend who lives across the hall from our apartment. Her boyfriend works for the prestigious accounting company called PriceWaterHouse Coopers and had to stay locked in his apartment to study for a test the company was giving him. So she had girl time with us. She made us authentic Korean food and taught us about the culture as well as did hair and makeup with us and watched christmas movies. She said that hanging out with us was the most fun she had, had all vacation. It is weird how different relationships are in different cultures. To me it seemed as though she was supposed to clean, cook and do whatever her boyfriend needed. Rather then having an equal relationship where they would just hang out and have fun.
I hope she comes back to visit soon!
