I leave for South Korea early Thursday morning to teach English for one year. Yesterday, I had my last day of work at the French bakery, and my sweet co-worker hugged me and cried. Then a customer came in with a big scented candle for me, hugged me over the counter and cried, saying she's genuinely going to miss me. All this emotion has left me feeling like a robot. I wonder if I've turned my emotions off to help myself deal with the changes in my life. Either that, or I have prepared myself for so long, I have realized that going to South Korea is the best decision. I've been to Korea before and I was impressed by the friendliness of the people and the beauty of the country. I'm going to live in Boseong, where all the green tea is grown. I should feel isolated at times, but I will have plenty of time to write and draw.
