Moving to South Korea is a relatively crazy thing to do. It’s easy to lose sight of this fact from over here, where all the Westerners you meet have chosen the same path. From here, moving to South Korea has already been done — we’re already here — and now we have to get on with living in South Korea, which isn’t nearly as crazy as the initial move. The foreign teacher population over here is bigger than you might expect, and I find myself looking at my life here in comparison to them, which inevitably makes me feel relatively normal. It’s only when I speak to friends and family back home that I realize the strange path I’ve taken in comparison to most, and I once again feel the spark of this extraordinary life.

My hot water finally returned this afternoon, and my toilet is no longer clogged. Note to self: plungers are hard to find in South Korea — I must know why this is.
