Although I've sometimes been counting the days to my return home, it just hit me now how close it really is. Only two months left! Yesterday we had a meeting with the school's principal, and he offered us another contract for next year. I was surprised they wanted us to stay, after all the drama we've had this year. Aaron and I happily said no (not because we don't like Korea, but it's time to go back to real life). I think they're probably relieved we're not staying.
So, real life. Kind of scary going back home, not really knowing what I'll be doing. Time to work on my resume, and contact everyone I know, and look for job offers. Ugh. It's exciting though, this year made me realize how much I missed my field and my old job, so hopefully I can find something similar. I had loads of time to think, and loads of time to take it easy this year, so I'm ready and motivated to go back. I don't know if my stint in Korea will hurt or benefit my career- probably a little bit of both. On a personal level, it was probably an amazing thing.
And the school is buying our plane tickets this week- the countdown is officially starting. Must start a list of things to do before leaving Seoul!
