Still Kicking!


First of all, I have a tremendous post to do about Kim's Kitchen, which is fast becoming my default destination on my work-free days. But I think I'm going to wait until post-birthday-dinner (as if I would go anywhere else! Mm-mm, dak galbi, I've missed you) so I can have an excuse to take really dorky photos of the place.

But more importantly, I have swallowed hard, had a talk with The Boy, and decided that another year in Korea is the next step for me. My antics aren't quite over yet! I'm stoked to be seeing friends again and to get a second chance at everything I missed the first time: Busan, Jeju, the Mud Festival, at least one cave, and maybe even a visit to Dokdo. (Because Dokdo is ours, dammit!)

Plus there's lots of international trips I want to take, too. I knocked Indonesia and China off my list in 2009; maybe I can cross off Thailand in 2011? Maybe Japan, too, if I can get over my irrational aversion to Japan. (Thanks, weeaboos.)

I have been putting out feelers about job openings in Uijeongbu (because I would love to go back to my old stomping grounds) and while I don't want to count my chickens before they're hatched, I'm confident I can find something in the early months of 2011. Just gotta update the resume, is all...


  1. That's fantastic! I'm jealous - now that I've reached again the time of year in which I was in Korea, I've been missing it heavily.

  2. Do you have any plans to come back? It'd be super-cool to hang out with you again in Korea. (It'd also be super-cool to hang out with you n America, too, but you know what I mean...)
