Still at home

I’m not actually in Korea yet.  But I did officially book my flight tonight, so I figured it was time to get this whole blog thing started.

Now I have nothing but a month (exactly a month) between me and my 10 months in Korea! Yesterday my stepsister asked me why I wasn’t more excited about my trip. (Living in Korea for a year has always been a lifelong dream of mine.) The simple answer is that it’s too painful to maintain a steady stream of excitement when my departure is still so far away (in terms of days and hours at least).

So for now I focus on the tasks at hand: weddings, vacations, teaching, family visits, last get-togethers with friends, and my two continuous lifelong projects: practicing piano and studying Korean.

There is a good chance I won’t post anything else until I’m actually there, but we’ll see. The suspense may prove too much.
