2 Year Blog Anniversary
As hard as it is for me to believe that I’ve been in Korea for over a year, it’s even harder for me to believe that it’s been two years since I started this blog.
When I started writing here I was a senior in college and Korea was still in the distant future. I was teaching at the English Language Institute at my school and hopeful that I’d make it to Korea in August.
When that timing fell through I was devastated but thankful to have this place as an outlet to continue to force myself to write and be creative despite having to delay what I really wanted to be doing for another 6 months.
But as it turns out that was the best thing that could have happened. Had I come in August I probably wouldn’t have been in Daejeon and I definitely wouldn’t have been here, at my school, with my kids, who I can’t imagine my Korea without.
For those of you who have been here since then, mostly my family, thank you. Living far away from people is hard. But please know that I don’t take for granted how special it is that I have people who care about me enough to stay involved, even when I’m 7,000 miles away.
I’m not always good at expressing myself in person, but I’m grateful that this blog allows me the chance to write to you what I’m not always good at speaking.
And for people who have joined along the way, thank you so incredibly much. I write here because it’s good for me. It’s helps me to understand what I’m going through and process all the new experiences I’m having. So the fact that anyone would come along for that, very personal, journey is really special.
I know that I can be cheesy and that maybe I idealize things a little too much, but what you read here are always my honest thoughts and feelings.
Anyway this is just a little post to say thank you. To everyone who reads this, for whatever reason, wherever you are, thank you.
I hope you’ll continue to stick around for more of whatever this new year brings ^^
