Change of Plans and Trip Home

:

Hello Readers!

I am heading back to the USA tomorrow!
There has been quite a drastic change in plans, and instead of being home for 3 weeks and returning at the end of September, I will be staying in the US for over a month and returning to beautiful Korea around the end of October.
The decision was made suddenly, and believe me… it’s caused me a lot of turmoil. But, I think that it was the best choice.
Bottom line: I’m leaving Busan. It was a nice stay here in this beach area, but I’m a country girl. Didn’t you know? All of the partying, and the traffic, and the overcrowding… that’s been gettin’ me down. Way down. I’ve gotta get out.

Hello Readers!

Bottom line: I’m leaving Busan. It was a nice stay here in this beach area, but I’m a country girl. Didn’t you know? All of the partying, and the traffic, and the overcrowding… that’s been gettin’ me down. Way down. I’ve gotta get out.
So I’ve chosen to relocate my little self to another part of the country that’s much smaller (though still quite a city I’ve heard) and a little less manic. I’ll let you know the details close to the time.
I’m going to spend the time at home getting myself together. Unfortunately the school I first worked for greatly tarnished my first experience here in Korea and left me a little shaken. I have no doubt that the next time around will be much better.
Anyway, in the case of me going home for a longer period of time I have to rethink my packing. Since the weather is going to start getting cooler in the states after I arrive, I need to be ready for it.
On a rather sideways note…
I have a very strange feeling inside, and I think that pretty soon there may be trouble coming, but I’m not sure what kind. I just have to keep focused and remember my goals.
Learn Korean
Pass TESOL
Prepare for Graduate School
Be the best woman I can be. (Sound cliche? Well shush. Go count rocks or something.)
But, who knows. Maybe there is no trouble on its way. Maybe I’m just paranoid because this past week has been a gift from Hades.
Well, anyway. This trip home is going to give me time to regroup, pull myself together, and enjoy being around people who love and care for me. That’ll be the best rejuvenation.
My flight leaves tomorrow morning. I’ll be home by 8pm Sunday the 5th.
I’m excited to see my family and friends!
I’ll miss all of you in Korea. Especially you (you know who you are).
But! I’ll be back in about 6 weeks, rested, rejuvenated, and ready to tackle a new job!
I’m sure I’ll be posting a blog here and there while I’m in the states.
Though, the majority of the bogs I post while I’m Stateside will be found on www.autumnalbutterfly.blogspot.com. So check that out.
Well then. Everyone take care!
Until next post,
~A.
