Hi. My name is Becca. I've been a vegetarian for about a year and 10 months. I live in Korea, and I'll be starting school next month. I'm a little worried about fitting in, and I was hoping to get some advice. I'm not the best at making friends, but I look forward to meeting everyone here! :)
Welcome Becca! So glad you joined. You'll find lots of friendly people here!

Oh, alright. Well as long as your Korean is OK, you should be able to manage.
Since you grew up in the U.S. and have really good English, you should be a pretty interesting person for a lot of other students to meet. Being interesting is a huge advantage in making friends.
University will be easier than primary school, but fish is in almost everything in Korea and Japan as a flavoring.
Do you know how to cook?
I feel for you
Why did you have to leave the states? Was it a matter of finances, or something else?
I've largely avoided Korea and Japan for that very reason. Not sure how many times I've been, but I've never stayed long.
I'm going to PM you, if you don't mind. Some things I'd rather not give details on in a public forum ^_^
EDIT: I have 777 posts. I'll have to post seven thousand more times if I post again to get back to all sevens... intimidating.
