It's Dec. 13, 2011 and I'm about to have my 2nd Christmas in Korea. Last years was the worst because I was so sick and alone. This year I'm hoping to not be sick and to not be alone. Right now I've got a bacterial infection and hope that it's gone come Christmas. I've got 34 days until I'm in England and 77 days until I'm back home in Oklahoma. I've had a rough couple weeks, but things are looking up thanks to my awesome friends and my mom and dad.
Who knew that 2 years would bring so many ups and downs. Despite the downs, I wouldn't give this experience up for anything. I've learned more about myself in these past two years than I have in the past 24 years of my life. I left the states a 24 year old girl who had no idea what she wanted to do and I'll come back a 26 year old woman who has decided on a career path, learned that 1st impressions really DO matter, that I need to be happy being alone in order to be ready for the real thing, thanked the woman who gave me life, and learned more about where I came from. And that you can dress up and still be comfy. haha
I could go on and on, but I won't. I've been contemplating how I'm going to get everything home and how I'm going to get rid of ALL the stuff I'm not bringing home. It's such a daunting task and I've been putting it off as long as possible. lol But now that I have less than three months I think I really need to buckle down and charge through it all.
Well...this will possibly be the last thing I post until I get home. Mostly because I'll be too busy and stressed trying to pack up the last two years of my life and saying good-bye to friends. So I look forward to seeing you all when I get home!!!
