My time in Korea has finally come to an end. The period of my life I have spent in this country has absolutely flown by and I am slowly trying to piece together where the last thirteen months have gone. This past Friday I enjoyed a wonderful going away celebration with my closest friends and students. In addition to my farewell bash, I have been saying numerous goodbyes and trying to tidy up every relationship that I have made before I leave the country. I am so grateful for the friends I have made here and I am confident that I will hold onto a large majority of them for the rest of my life. It is with a heavy heart that I leave this country, but I know the path I have chosen to continue on is the right one. Within the next six hours, I will hop on a bus that will take me to Seoul where I will catch a flight tomorrow morning headed for Jakarta, Indonesia. When the wheels of the Boeing 747 Korean Airliner lift up from the ground and I am no longer on Korean soil, I know it will bring tears to my eyes. It is impossible to put into words what my experience living and teaching English in Korea has done for me; I am forever indebted to this great nation for the positive changes that it brought about in my life. Goodbye, for now Korea…..I’ll be seeing you again. So much love for everyone that came into my life and for the friends that I made in Korea who will remain a part of my journey until it’s over. ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ (hangul symbols that represent tears…I have them streaming down my face right now).
