This is my monthly utility bills for my two room Korean apartment. It is only this high because I ran the air con all month, at the end of the summer. This, and the employer sponsored housing, allows me to save and send money home on a regular basis. My monthly utility bills back home were comparable for the space more than one hundred dollars. For the two bedroom apartment back home the utility bill was almost five hundred dollars.
Research and leave. There is no need to keep losing your mind over high bills. You never get to feel free. Never.
