It’s been awhile since I posted last. Seriously. It’s been 8 months. How does time fly that fast?
So, what have I been up to these last 8 months? Well, I started a new job. It was a temp job that was supposed to last 2 weeks at most. 2 weeks turned into a month. A month turned into 2 and before I knew it, they were begging me to take a permanent position.
I’ve been at the company since February and in those short 8 months, my anxiety has hit levels I haven’t seen in nearly a decade. The job is just not for me. Too much stress, almost no training and no support from management. My last day is in a few weeks and I can’t say I will miss the job at all. I will miss my co-workers, though it seems many of them are jumping ship as well. I have no idea what my next move is. But I can only hold onto hope that I won’t continue feeling the crippling anxiety that I feel right now.
So, has there been any other big news since February? Hmm…Let me think…Oh yeah!
I SPENT 2 WEEKS IN SOUTH KOREA!
I can not stress enough how life changing that trip was. I’ll be posting a series on my time in Korea, because it was just so amazing. I can not, can not, can not wait to go back.
The food, the people, the shopping! It was easily the best vacation I’ve ever been on. There were difficult times, no doubt. Visiting a country where you don’t speak the language and only have a basic understanding of customs and culture can be trying at times. But it was so worth it.
As things in my life are up in the air and uncertain, I keep thinking back on my time in Korea. I have no idea where my life will lead me from this moment on. But I know that somehow, someway, I will make Seoul my home away from home. Korea burrowed deep down into my bones. I carry it with me everywhere I go.
I can’t wait to follow my longing back home.
