plans

“Like, what should we do this weekend?”

As an English teacher in South Korea, when Thursday rolls around each week I usually itch for my upcoming weekend plans. I have learned to take full advantage of my weekend time in Korea and I hope to continue with this new approach to my free time when I return home. I love the tired yet accomplished feeling of a Sunday night following a jam-packed weekend of experiencing new things and people in Korea. When I find myself without plans midweek, I use the following 5 resources to find inspiration for weekend outings. I hope you find them helpful and please feel free to comment with alternative ideas. I promise, armed with these resources you won’t find yourself uttering the annoying answer to a friend looking to have a memorable weekend, “I don’t know, what do you want to do?”


Letter to Ireland, August 2011

Dunboyne
Ireland
16/8/2011

Dear Ireland,

In little more than a week I will be gone. Two months and bit seemed a long time when I had first planned the trip. Fortunately, this letter is nothing to do with nostalgic goodbyes full of clichés about the speed of the weeks and the grass never being as green as anywhere but home. No, none of that, so you can be happy or sad as it makes no odds to the outcome of this letter.

It’s an odd situation having returned after a year and taken the time to really take in the changes. Of course I’ve done it before on plenty of occasions but this time I suppose I have been more analytical. I have had no honeymoon and attached radiant bride to obscure my opinions. I have not returned from England where I did not have a very good living experience. I have not returned to Ireland after a fleeting departure and return.

Surviving the Storm

Sorry that I haven't posted in quite a while, everyone.

Some very stressful things have been going on lately. I'm afraid that I don't have the freedom to write about it on the blog, as I'm never sure who is reading this and I don't want to cause any unnecessary chaos to add on to the chaos that's already very prevalent.

As for now, things are quite crazy and I'm doing my best to adjust to the situation and work it out for the better.

The most I can say is that I have turned in my resignation at my current school, and am looking forward to beginning a new job here in Korea in October.

I've been really focused on surviving the storm with little to no trauma, which is why I haven't been posting up recently.
