The End is Near

In four days, we’ll be hitting our one year mark in Korea.

Holy crap.

There were far too many ups and downs to reminisce about in a single blog entry. It’s been good, it’s been bad, but most importantly, it’s been an experience. One thing’s for sure; I’m glad we wrote it all down.

I can’t even remember what I ate for breakfast yesterday, so to have a website full of memories that we can keep for the rest of our lives is absolutely invaluable. And to be able to share our adventures with you, the readers, has been so much fun.

It’s hard to believe that just barely over a year ago, neither of us even knew that we’d be teaching in Korea. The idea was seeded in a small conversation, grew into an application, and resulted in an opportunity, which we eagerly grabbed a hold of. There aren’t many times in our lives when we can simply let ourselves be guided by the winds of opportunity, and we weren’t going to let the chance slip past us. 

Man, can life ever throw some wicked curve balls.

To quote some motivational poster I read somewhere, written by someone, at some point in history, probably for some very important reason:

"Learn to embrace change, and you'll begin to recognize that life is in constant motion, and every change happens for a reason. When you see boundaries as opportunities, the world becomes a limitless place, and your entire life becomes an adventure."
