I finally did it.
I took the leap.
I jumped off the existential cliff into the great unknown.
Why all this drama, you ask? I quit my job, accepted a job in South Korea and am going to travel the world and write about my experiences.
Basically I’m living the dream.
To back it up a bit, there were a lot of deciding factors that went into my decision. Well, one big one: there are so many amazing places in the world and I want to see them all. I have always had a romantic notion that I could take off Burroughs-style and meet new people. Or that I could hang out in coffee shops like Hemingway (even though I can’t stand the guy) and devote my time to writing, drinking coffee and petting cats. OK, maybe I came to some of those conclusions while sitting around in Morocco drinking mint tea and writing in my journal, but. Whatever the case, up until now I have been afraid of uncertainty, for whatever reason. A large part of me likes having plans and knowing where I am going– almost to the extent that I over plan and over plan until my plans are barely recognizable and I end up failing to have a plan at all. It’s quite ridiculous.
All of that being said, I have become a South Korean visa expert and all of my paperwork should be ready in the next few weeks. Factoring in any other job offers, further visa complications, etc., I will be teaching in South Korea in September. Yay, right?
The only thing left to decide is if my juicer will fit in my suitcase.
To be continued…
