So, in the beginning of April I decided that I would renew my contract for a second year. A lot of thought went into this decision and until about January I was on the fence about what to do. Continue reading “Here is to Year 2!”
My last two weeks have not been the greatest in my opinion. I got a care package from home that I devoured in days, which also triggered my sweet tooth. So for a few days I tended to eat more crap than I should have, because I was craving the taste of it. I also missed taking tea for two days and I spilled one packet down the sink drain while I was rinsing herbs. I’ve learned that making the tea at night is easier than in the morning.

I’ve been in Chengdu for almost 2 weeks now and it has taken me a bit of time to get adjusted. Chengdu is very different to my experience of being in Korea. During my first couple of days I did a lot of running around and going to various places to get things sorted, there are still a few things left to sort, but hopefully they will be done by the end of the month.
