It's been ages since I wrote one of these, but like the title says, I'm currently in Korea, and I wanted to post something while I'm here just for nostalgia I guess. Visiting Korea has been something I wanted to do since I started thinking about going to Japan too. In fact, for a bit, I wasn't sure if I wanted to teach English in Korea or Japan, so visiting was a long time coming.
This is my second day here, and to be honest, it's been difficult. I wasn't sleeping well before the trip thanks to Druck (the German adaptation of Skam. If you don't know that show, the format is that the clips are posted in real time when that particular scene is happening in the day. When a show is taking place in Germany, and I'm in Japan... Well, you get the picture. I wasn't staying up for them, but it's been as if my brain was aware they might come, and I've been waking up throughout the night recently and been unable to fall back asleep.) With the trip and waking up early this morning for a DMZ tour, I'm utterly exhausted.
I came back to the hostel early today because I needed to be somewhere quiet and zone out for a while, if not sleep. That seems to be working. And I'm going to bed soon and plan to get a full eight hours, which will hopefully help.
There are two full days left of my trip and then the day I go home to Japan. I'm hoping that I'll feel my best and really be able to enjoy them. After the trip, when I'm better rested, I want to talk more about it. Then again, I'm behind on everything I want to talk about here, so we'll see how long that takes me...
