I'm just being me...having fun while making friends. Sometimes I do find it a bit difficult with the part where I make new friends. My problem is that I haven't figured out how to balance the groups, especially since I continue making new ones. I can't hang out with them all at once, so it forces me to choose. If any of you know me, you know that can be a difficult decision since I am indecisive and pretty much would like to do everything. I just have to learn how to prioritize, but then I feel bad when I am forced to decline the other peeps I decide not to hang out with. Oh first world problems.
A few things are changing at school...a South African coworker is marrying his Korean girlfriend this weekend, after five months a Canadian coworker is moving to Scotland where his girlfriend just started grad school, another Canadian coworker is leaving to go back home (sad)...that's not all of them, but I'll spare you the rest. Of course, all of this will bring in new faces and possibly new friendships.
On a different note, I have a couple of exciting trips coming up...yay! There's the Boryeong Mud Festival this weekend, which will be a blast...there will be a whole lotta craziness going on! =) Then off to TOKYO for summer vacation, July 30th to August 7th...can't wait! I'm going with Steph, my friend/co-worker. We were originally planning on either going to Thailand or Vietnam, but we decided at the last minute (sitting in front of the travel agent, which is the best way to book airplane tix here in Korea) on TOKYO. I've always wanted to go to Japan, well everywhere for that matter. So now I'm getting my chance. There may be a couple of other small trips next month...we'll see where the chips fall. You have one life, so make the most of it. That I plan on doing...yessiree! Marking things off of my bucket list while adding a few more at the same time.
Looking over the Han River at Yeouido Park during my bike ride earlier this evening. Riding along the river is very relaxing...such beautiful scenery.
"We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again-to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more."
~Pico Iyer, "Why We Travel"
