1) to pay off student loans
2) to continue in the field of EFL teaching, which I have already been working in for 2.5 years. Korea happens to have great opportunities for that.
3) to experience life in Asia and understand more about Koreans and Korea. Having grown up a Moonie, I felt like I needed to know more about the culture as it really is.
All these things combined with trying to have a fun year exploring with David before moving to the US is kind of what the year is about for me -- in case you were wondering.
So happy it's Friday! Spring is finally here in Seoul and it couldn't be more beautiful. Not promising another post anytime soon, but I'll do my best.
Happy Friday, Happy Spring!
