Merry Christmas!… I’m a horrible blogger.

Well, I think it’s safe to say that I’m a terrible blogger.

After literally six months of writing nothing, I’m finally taking a moment to say it’s my intention to be better about this… A lot has happened since my last post when I went paragliding. Also, I’ve vowed to take my “writing” more seriously in 2014, which means I’m really going to have to get my shit together and start blogging more consistently. (If you actually read this, you’re welcome to prod me when it starts sitting vacant for more than a few days.)

So, for tonight–Christmas Eve–here’s a short rundown of what’s happened in the last six months:

1. Korea is hot as armpits in the summer and I can’t straighten my hair to save my life. My students started telling me that my curly “scrunched” hair looked like ramen noodles. Great.

2. Basically, I’m the best teacher ever. I’ll explain more later.

3. I finally tried to move things around in my tiny apartment to make it feel more like “home.” In the process, I made two huge rips in the cheap vinyl flooring and broke the glass cover on my “kitchen” “table.” I suppose all comfort comes with a price…

4. Korean Thanksgiving is in September and it’s like the Korean equivalent of Christmas. People give each other fancy gift sets, including SPAM gift sets (And no, you didn’t read that wrong. I said SPAM.). Also, I had a five day break from school. It was pretty much awesome.

5. Fall in Korea is beautiful. I fell in love with my city all over again when the leaves turned.

6. I went to Thailand for a week in November to celebrate my birthday. More on that later, too.

7. I got the best birthday gift ever – my friend DW came to Korea to teach and randomly ended up in my city!

8. I worked feverishly with my school to get my other bestie, JW, a position at my school. He just got here last week. Basically, DW, JW, and I will proceed to galavant around the Peninsula like crazy Americans and see the sights. I’m highly excited.

9. Christmas in Korea isn’t so bad. I thought it would be more difficult to find “Christmas-y” stuff here, but it hasn’t been. They even have lights!

10. And, 2014 is a new year. I’ll be staying in Korea for another year and I have a whole list of things to accomplish, all of which I hope to document. I hope you’ll join me on my ride of embarrassment, learning, and life transitions as I continue on my adventure.

Cheers, lovers. And have a very merry Christmas. :)
