I am very blessed to have some wonderful people in my life. I often feel like a very lucky person but today I feel especially lucky.
I’m really sad I have to leave Korea in less than a week and have been moping around, unable to really enjoy the time I have left here. I know it’s bad and I know I shouldn’t act so listless but I can’t help but walk around with a heavy heart. I have some good-bye dinners planned with a few close friends and family members and I shudder to think how teary I will be then. I feel bad that I wasn’t able to meet up with some more friends and distant family members but one month went by a lot quicker than I had anticipated. I don’t think any part of my remaining journey will be quite as memorable as my time in Korea.
I want to send my love and good wishes to my friends and family in America right now. I had the opportunity to talk to Anjul today and it was just so nice to absorb some of his wisdom. =) I still toy around with the idea of staying in Korea longer and cancelling some of my other trips but I feel like I need to stick to the plan for now, for myself.
Currently I am finalizing some last minute details for the trip. While doing so, I feel like my life is akin to the main character’s life in Slumdog Millionare. The people that I have been meeting and connecting with are so random and there is no logical structure to the way I planned this trip. Many of the people I am going to meet are by chance encounters. I don’t want to divulge too much right now in case things don’t work out, but you will soon know what I mean.
Also, I may not be able to blog while I am in China because last I heard, they block wordpress. If I can’t write through a proxy ip address I will probably just save my posts and publish them once I reach Taiwan. For now I will continue to post about my life in Korea.
