‘Murca

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.
