Back to Reality

Back in Korea and back at work. Bummed- vacation went by WAY too fast. It was awesome to see my family and spend time at the beach. I developed an allergic reaction to the sun mid way through my break and was covered in a painful, itchy rash. FUN stuff.

I've applied for some other jobs in Mexico, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. I am leaning towards Mexico but if the one in Saudi Arabia comes through- I amy do that one. The money in Saudi Arabia is awesome! The money in Mexico- not so awesome.

Por fin!

Finally! My vacation has arrived. It has been a long time coming. I am incredibly cranky and tired. I haven't been home in almost 2 years and haven't seen my family just as long. I have been in Korea for almost 18 months straight. It is time for my mental health break. It is much needed and oh so long over due. I like my job- don't love it- but I need to be near some "normal". I put normal in quotes as Korea is not so unusual, it just isn't my culture and things sometimes just seem SO strange. It is a generally nice population and their culture is, well theirs. Can't shit on them for that. I am used to Canada and the diversity; to not being the minority- I know that sounds uber harsh but it's true.

I am currently sitting at the gate for my flight to Chicago. I have 3 hours until boarding time. I can't wait to get on the plane and sleep. I am so tired. I think the flight is 13 hours. LOTS of time to sleep. I am charging the battery to my laptop and I hope it is fully charged before I have to board.
