A long overdue post
I always have the intention every weekend to write about something new and cool that we’ve been doing. Something interesting, something awesome. And while Korea is a great place, we’ve hit a rut. I think mainly because we’re saving so much money and not doing anything, there’s nothing really to write about. We do the same things all the time – hang out with Alice, go eat food, and do a lot of prep work for school.
Ross and I have been kicking around an idea to write a book, however, about teaching and living in Korea. I’ve also tried to start a new blog ‘Tips for Waygooks’ – I just can’t remember the tips I think of when it comes time to actually write. I need to start carrying around a notebook so I can remember what to write.
I will tell you that we only have 85 days left in our contract here in Masan. The time has flown by, and I’m glad to be going home. It will be the second time that we’ve left this beautiful country, and while I’m excited about going home, I know I will feel a deep longing for this place. People keep asking me if we’re coming back, and I say no, but in all honesty I can see us doing another year or two here. I just need to spend time with my family, specifically my grandparents and my nephew. I miss everyone at home dearly, but I miss them the most.
So, on this note, I PROMISE I will write about something cool this week, seeing as how I won’t have extra school work to do. Maybe I’ll write about our awesome Christmas tree, or about our random afternoon in Busan. I’ll figure something out. In the meantime, I’m going to go read Harry Potter and go to bed. Yes, I know it’s a Saturday night, but it’s getting so cold outside….
