My Bags are Packed

Today is my last day in America, so if course I spent it cleaning and packing. I also ran several different errands around town as well, but mostly I stayed home. The day started out kind of dreary; the rain was pouring. This made me sad because I needed to run some stuff to a storage unit and I didn't really want to do it in the rain. So in order to just get it over with, I moved bins of stuff to my car in the pouring rain and took it to the storage unit. Several hours later, it was blue skies and sunny out.

Becoming a Wedding Photographer

I am less than a week away from going back to Korea. I have my visa and my plane ticket is purchased. All I have to do now is pack my bags. I also had one big event that I was committed to before going back to Korea, and on Sunday that event finally came.

Several months back, one of my classmates asked my if I could do her wedding invited photos after she found out I do a bit of photography. After the photo session and she saw the photos, she really liked them and had asked if I could also do the photos at her wedding.

Going Back to Korea!!!

I have been thinking about this decision for several months now and started the process to go back to Korea back in November. I am happy to say now, that I am going back to Korea in two weeks! I have missed all of my students and the culture I had grown to love. So when I made my decision, I decided I would finish my master's online and teach in Korea at the same time. I transferred to Concordia University and will be getting my Master's of Education in ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages).

Since I am going back to Korea, that means I wills start working on this blog again. I hope everyone will enjoy my journey as I travel back to Korea.

Heading Home!

I am sitting in the airport waiting for my flight to leave Korea. As I sit here waiting, I still haven't really processed that I am leaving Korea and might never come back. It is a very surreal feeling. This place had become my home for the past year and now I am leaving it. It is a strange felling but I haven't gotten sad about it. I know that once I get home that I will start becoming sad and missing the home I made for myself in Korea. I also feel bad that I'm not more sad. I am about to board my plane so this will be all for now. See you back in the states.

Photo A Day: Aug 15-21

Aug 15 - Today has been a very weird day. It is a national holiday here in Korea, and so me and a couple of co-workers spent most of the day together. First we got together for lunch, then headed to Starbucks for coffee while Jihyeon had to do some work. While at Starbucks, Monica gave me and Alison a Korean writing test. Then afterwards we went to see the movie Total Recall. After the movie when I got home, I turned on the TV and the original Total Recall had just started. Haha, what a weird but good day off.

Lotte World

I finally made it to Lotte World. I have been wanting to go there for a long time now. Lotte World is the biggest indoor amusement park in the world according to Guinness World Records. There is also a portion of the park outside, too. The park consists of two parts: Lotte World Adventure which is the indoors part and Magic Island which is located outside. The park is also easy to get to because it is in Seoul and it's connected to the subway line.
