It’s Thursday! It’s also my first day at work this week thanks to the long holiday weekend. I spent four glorious days taking in as much sun as possible while staying on beautiful Jeju. It was a heavenly weekend, and I returned home feeling relaxed and genuinely happy.
My contract finishes up in about 5 months, and I will be moving out of the country shortly after. My future, as it currently stands, is quite uncertain. I’ll be deciding where I want to live next, what I want to do, and all other sorts of decisions will be made. Everything is up in the air, and for some people that can be exhilarating, but it does make me feel nervous. I always like having a bit of direction even if I don’t have everything planned out. But right now, at this moment, everything depends on several different things. It’s a bit complicated, and it has caused me a bit of stress.
So it’s nice to get away every once in a while. It’s nice to escape to an island and not worry about anything for a few days. I spent a lot of the time on the beach, and I suddenly remembered how much I love the sea. Feeling the sand, the sun, and the saltwater was invigorating, and it put a lot of my worries at ease. Yes, I will have some big decisions to make in the coming months, but it’s important for me to remember to enjoy the present as well. Autumn has started here on the peninsula, and it’s my favorite season. I plan on taking advantage of every warm day and cool night as I can.
