Off to the next adventure!

It’s time for this hobbit to go on her next adventure!

I’m excited.

My heart is beating so fast.

My smile is wider than it has ever been.

And I’m opening my arms to embrace this new chapter of my life with a gigantic bear hug.

I’m happy, and I’m nervous.

There’s a fuzzy feeling in my heart – a warm and happy one.

You know that feeling when you’re starting to fall in love? Where you don’t know where it might lead you, but you’re excited to find out? Yeah, that one!

I’m ready for a new challenge and I’m excited to grow as a human being. I’m excited to meet new people and create meaningful bonds of friendship.

I know that the moment I step into these foreign lands, I’ll feel like a toddler again. I won’t know the language, I won’t know how to ask “where’s the milk” in a grocery store, and basic tasks like finding a cell phone plan or figuring out the transportation system will feel like algebra to me. But that will just be the first few months.

I’ll learn, I’ll grow, and throughout it all life will be beautiful.

Every day, no matter how difficult it may get, there will be positive and happy moments, and beautiful memories to be made.

So here’s a see ya later for now to Canada, and a sweet hello to Korea!

I can’t wait to share this next chapter of my life with you all! Here’s to more happy times, enormous amounts of adventures, some adulting, and eating my body weight in kimchi!

While I lived abroad these past 2.5 years, I realized something: I wish I had been able to share my experiences with my family and friends while I was experiencing them, and not just after the fact.

So this time, I’m trying something new: In addition to the weekly blog posts, I’m going to take you all with me on this next adventure of mine, through video. South Korea, here we come!
