7 Months

So I'm beginning to think a lot about my plans after Korea.  Such a heavy's expected when you're contemplating your life and what it is that you want to get out of it.  I feel as if I'm walking a double-edged sword and that I'm having to make big sacrifices to live the lifestyle that I want.

Lately I was beginning to think that I might just stay here for another year, but I believe that notion may have passed.  Especially with the cooler weather making it's way.  When the weather changes in Korea, it changes fast.  Not that I don't mind the cold weather, it's just that I wasn't really able to enjoy the summer since it rained most of the time...and when I arrived here, it was cold.  I'm currently thinking that I'll head down to the Philippines for a few weeks to sight-see and visit family I haven't seen since I was in elementary school.  Then possibly make my way down to Bali and maybe travel to a few other countries in SE Asia.  Then head back stateside.  Everything's still up in the air, but at least I'm beginning to come up with ideas.  It's a start and I'm not at a standstill...

Where did the summer go...?

Ooh, I rained for most of it here in South Korea.  Now it's time for the fall season.  The weather is cooler now in the mornings and evenings.  This is my favorite time of year.  Unfortunately, the fall and spring seasons don't last very long here.  Before I know it, it will be time to put on my winter coat.

With the cooler weather making its way, I'm hoping to sneak in one last trip to the beach for a couple of days this weekend since it will be a four day weekend...Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving).  Yay!

...and maybe, just maybe, I'll actually catch up on my posts..

...and now I have a friend/coworker trying to convince me to stay another year since I don't exactly know what I'm going to do once my contract is up...

I just have to reuse this...

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where…” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
