Back home!

I officially moved out of my EPiK provided apartment on August 24, traveled to Busan and then hung out in Seoul a few more days and left Korea on September 4, 2015. I didn't tell my family ahead of time so they were surprised when I showed up at their front door. 

The last few days in Seoul I thought I was making a mistake by leaving and I was sure I would be miserable once back in the USA, surprisingly it hasn't been entirely that way. I do have moments where I miss my life back in Korea but overall I haven't really struggled with Korea homesickness. I just got back from a week long Roadtrip through Texas with my friends from university so that probably helped a lot with keeping me distracted and not thinking about what I left behind. My full time job now is being unemployed but job searching. Fingers crossed something comes up soon.

36 months

i just came back from vacationing in vietnam. i visited hanoi, hoi an, and accomplished my dream of visiting halong bay which wrapped up my SEA wishlist which i wrote three years ago prior to arriving in korea! i can't believe i completed it, and was able to even add on extra countries. it was only a short time but i think vietnam has been one of my favorite countries to visit during my time in asia. it was terribly hot, but the food was delicious, and the pace of life reminded me of life back in guatemala. i'm now back in korea where i have a week to move out of my apartment, and then i'll stick around for an extra week to tour a bit more of korea and seoul. i'm not sure how i'm feeling, i'm ready to go but nervous about future employment. fingers crossed. the next time i write a post i will be back in the usa. maybe i'll have more to say then. i can't believe i actually kept this up for the whole three years. i wish i had been more detailed, instead of lazy posts once a month and just writing random incoherent thoughts.

Ps just realized that exactly three years ago I landed in Korea.

There's a virus going around Korea (MeRS) that has everyone going a bit crazy. A lot of schools have closed, however mine has stayed opened. Not sure what else is happening.

Oops! Almost forgot the march update. 
Saw Ed Sheeran perform live and fell in love with him. Have pretty much been obsessed with him since, hopefully I'll be able to catch him on tour again. 
Traveled to a placed outside of Seoul called Wonju. The city itself didn't have much but there was an interesting museum and overall it was just nice to get out of Seoul. 

School is going well. A bit lonely but I love my kids.
