Vancouver in Two Days

I'm in Korea now.  Just arrived 3 days ago.  I had a two-day stop over in Vancouver.  My original crew of friends who I normally visit while I'm there were in other places -- except my friend Kenda who is now a mother.  I spent the two days with my former students from Regina.  It is great to see them doing so well in another city.  They certainly treated me well.  Thanks Mark!































What a lovely time :)  THANK-YOU EVERYONE!

Yayyy! I'm glad you're in Korea! I am hoping you'll have more Korean MIL stories for us :-)

Oh wow! Okay so I have so much to talk about, I'm so glad I found you. ^3^
Alright so, this might be easier if I knew your email... except I don't know how to message you and all that but if you have an email, you should email the reply to annastasiamae@gmail.com
:)
So I completely agree with you on the korean culture. Although I'm not a part of it, nor have I ever been there, I've always had this strange love and interest for it. ALthough I listen to the music and watch their dramas (teehee ;3) that is not my reason for going there-- i'm not deluded by a fantasy of going their for men in tight jeans and that sort of thing. I'm highly interested in Korea and asian cultures, and have been since I was little.
To put it simple I'm finishing up my Associates degree in liberal arts here in a year and maybe a semester because I procrastinated and didn't take full course load each semester, and I want to adventure the world and make new memories and learn new things... I'm sure you know exactly what I'm tlaking about. :3
Anyway, I've been highly considering either going straight to Korea after I finish my AA degree, or going to school for Child Psychology for a couple years THEN going there, to teach english, just like you. ^^
but I have so many questions about it and am really unsure of the process.
I know there are programs that can bring you there on a work visa and pay for your lodging, and you don't NEED to know Korean to go, but I'm attempting to learn some on my own here soon in the next couple years. I know two to four years is a long time, and by then my dreams may change, but I highly doubt my want to go there for at least a short while won't go away..
I saw your post from 2010 so I'm not sure if you're still there or what happened but it would be cool and helpful to know why, how, and what you need to do/be in order to go there. :3
Would be much appreciated!

Are you ever going to update? Did you and Sung Hyun split up, because it seems like it.

Can this blogger. or perhaps a reader she knows IRL, let us know she's alright? Just a quick post, or comment here? I've been reading for a few years and Jennifer was always a really regular blogger. Hope everything's good with you!
