I should probably start packing

Many thanks to the Homel family who had the genius idea for me to write a blog. It is far superior to sending out mass emails, plus this way I can use pretty colors!

Today is May 24, the day my journey begins. I depart for Los Angeles at 6:40pm, and then have a long layover until I depart for Seoul at 12:30 am.  I am scheduled to arrive in Korea at 5 in the morning on Monday, and begin my teacher training later that day!

As it stands, my communication is limited to two expressions: "anyong haseo" ("hello", formally), and "kyopto" (cute). I'll keep you updated as my repertoire expands. I've bought a korean phrasebook as well as some audio books that I'm sure will keep me cozy on lonely nights.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by for pizza and beer last night! I love you all so much and hope that you'll keep in touch.

love love love!
