I've been here just two weeks short of half a year now, and I've been meaning to post more pics of the neighborhood that I actually live in; for starters, here's the view from my window as of July 25 and December 8.
I'm quite attached to my neighborhood, and my view. My room is quite small, and for a while I was hoping my school would be able to get me a bigger room in the same building. But now, I like looking out over the old, walled-off railway line that cuts through the neighborhood, over to the two gold towers that stand right above Gongdeok Station.
When I first saw them in the day, I thought they looked somewhat decadent, standing out with its gold in the middle of the grey of the rest of the area like a blinged-out TJ Eckleburg. But at night, they're lit a bit more subtly and take on a comforting presence above the undulating rooftops below like lighthouses of some unsailed seas. With my desk right in front the window, they're constantly hovering just in the upper ranges of my field of vision, guardians of the skyline perched on top of my computer monitor.
