Headed to America on Monday for a month.
This is the first time I’ve ever felt like I really needed a vacation / break from Korea.
My contract ends in Feburary of 2015. It might be time to move on.
Things to do:
1) Read a bajillion books while I’m in Bellingham.
2) Go to an Orioles game while I’m in DC.
3) Figure out what to do with the rest of my life.
Korea is a great place to visit but not one I can imagine staying in much longer. The most simple, basic things become a huge fucking hassle here and no, it’s not because of the language barrier.
My inner sociologist realizes this is a complex culture based on social networks and maintaining one’s “face” or self-respect. My inner neanderthal is sick of dealing with lies and an inability to solve simple problems in a timely fashion.
