April is normally one of my favorite months of the year, but I find that with this April comes a hint of melancholy. I’ve been thinking just how much can happen in 365 days, and it is positively astounding. I think back to one year ago today; how different my life was. I had just returned from Ireland, and it was without a doubt the happiest time of my life. I look at this girl; so full of Continue reading
It’s been over a month since we arrived in Seoul, and my feelings on the matter are starting to sway a bit. Don’t get me wrong, Seoul can be a good time. Today Meghan, our new friend, and I went to see one of the palaces here in Seoul. “Finally! Something cultural. It’s about time I make an effort to integrate myself into this new culture,” I thought to myself. And it was very nice. But here’s the thing; Continue reading
I am not quite sure what it is about this week, but I am just mentally not here. My emotions have caught up with me. I am not positive what is going on exactly, but I just feel indifferent about being here. I am not home sick to say the least, but I have a void I want to fill.

Come Thursday it will be 3 weeks since arriving in Korea, but tomorrow marks one month from when I left Virginia Beach. Needless to say, A LOT can happen in one month. I will save you all the massive details, but numerous people have come in and out of my life. I have begun my first real job. And, I have come to the realization you really do need an ARC card to do anything over here. (I am stuck in immigration limbo right now). Also…if you are traveling to another country just buy a stupid cell phone when you get there….don’t use ONESIMCARD. It has been nothing but miserable.
Anyway, I quite enjoy it here. I don’t think I would want to stay any longer than a year, which is why I am going to look into getting my TEFL once we start getting paid. I think New Zealand would be a nice place to live, lol. Anyway, I realized I have deprived myself of writing so I figured a little blurb would be better than nothing. For any of my friends from back home that do read this….I miss you all very much. XOXO
See the mountains in the background? Neither do we, because the smog is blocking them. Actually it’s because we’re facing the wrong way…mountains are on the other side. But you can tell that the buildings in the background seem to be quite faded, and let’s just say that it’s not because they’re super far away. Continue reading
