so this is it
The countdown has begun, I leave the ROK in 5 days. My boxes are nearly packed, my suitcase is in total disarray, all of my errands are done. I went to the tax office, I went to the pension office, and tomorrow I will go to the post office. On Saturday, I will have one last hurrah at the micro brewery with my friends, and a big fat chocolate cake that I made at the beginning of the week. I started saying goodbye to my students, which has been less emotional than I prepared for, which I am thankful for. Then, on Tuesday, after 20 hours of traveling, I will arrive in southern Mexico to attend a TESOL course. I am tired, a bit stressed, and so looking forward to touching down in Chiapas de Corza, Mexico, and falling asleep.
