Currently sitting in the Tokyo airport. Fun stuff, I am tired, hungry and feeling generally crappy. I have an ear infection so it is making travelling fun! I want to vomit and have already on the flight. This is not going to be a good flight home at all! Arg! I wish there was a "Beam Me Up Scotty" machine as my friend Chris said. It would be so nice! I am going to go try to get some food into my system and hopefully I won't barf that up as well!

Holy Batman! I have 22 hours left in Korea! Went out last night and partied with my co-workers and friends. It was so much fun! Went for dinner and then went to a noraebang(Karoake room). Then some of us went to a couple of bars here and had some fun. I am going to miss Korea and the friends I've made. I am going to freaking cry at the bus terminal tonight! Ack! I already cried at the stupid bar last night! I hate emotions!

I am done work. I have one day until I am done Korea. Wow. Feeling a bit nostalgic, but more importanly- excited as hell to go home. My bags are all packed and waiting at the door. Tonight, we are all going out for dinner, drinks and noraebang(karoake)! I am not singing but I will be enjoying the company!

I am officially done. Mentally and physically done but not done contractually. Contractually I am done tomorrow. I can't wait. I am slowly shutting down. I want to go home. I miss everything. I miss normal. I am not ungrateful at all, and I do not regret my year here at all. I am antsy for my bed again and my big thick duvet! Aah- I can't wait to fall asleep under my duvet again! I am looking forward to morning tea at Tim Hortons. I normally hate Tim Hortons but after a year of none, I am feeling I need some!
Any way, I need to get ready for work. Write more tonight

I've been in Korea for exactly one year now. I arrived at 8 pm on April 7th, 2007. It is now April 8th, 2008 and 12:43 pm. Wow. Crazy to think that I've been here for a year now. I'm surprised that I've lasted the year. I didn't even want to stay. But I am glad I did. I am now REALLY REALLY ready to go home to Canada.

I am currently enjoying my last weekend in Korea. And I have both days off! A first in a very long time. It's been awhile- about 8 months since I've had two days off. And even rarer- I have them off in a row. Impressive!
I just went for an hour long walk around my neighbourhood of Sangmu, taking pictures and enjoying the great weather. I took pictures and hung out at the local soccer field, where I watched a soccer game.
I've added some photos from my walk today. This one is the lights in front of City Hall.

I have 7 days left in Korea. I've been teaching here for a year now. Crazy. This time last year, I was on a plane from Halifax to Seoul, South Korea. In 7 days, I'll be doing the reverse trip. Luckily going the other way, it's a shorter trip. A whole 4 hours shorter- making the trip 24 hours long! WOO HOO!
I am all packed and I've cleaned my apartment- if you can even call what I live in, an apartment. I am so antsy to get on that plane! I want to come home and see everyone! I need to start looking for a job at home. I am so nervous about that aspect of the next phase of 2008. Yikes!
