Back again…

I’m back in Gwangju after a weekend in Seoul, and I head back to Jindo on Wednesday.

I’m about ready for this merry-go-round to stop.  I’d like to get off now, please.

In other news, I have 9 months and 6 days left.  w00t.  I like Korea, but I am definitely looking forward to being back with Marc, and being able to order food without resorting to gestures.

Movies and a Photo

Saw two movies yesterday here in Gwangju.

The Dark Knight = AWESOME
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor = Less awesome, but still very fun, as always.

Sometime this week I’m going to try to check out The Good, The Bad, and The Weird, if I can get permission to go into the city. Yes, we have to get permission to leave the premises. It’s absurd, but whatever. I’m getting paid $1,000ish for about 28 hours of work, so I’m not about to complain.

In a few minutes, I head back to Damyang:

 

It took me an HOUR to figure out how to get over to this tree through the network of walking-ridges through the paddies. Nice as rice paddies are to look at, sometimes trying to make your way through the labyrinth of paths can be really frustrating.

Stuff.

Spent last night and most of today in Wando with some other foreigners who live there.  I’m now back in Gwangju so I can do some food shopping and see a movie or two, and on Monday, I’ll be back in Damyang.  So whirlwind, my life these days.

I’m actually looking forward to the start of the school year, interestingly enough.  My life has been so unstable since early July, and I just want to go back to having a standard space to return to at the end of a standard day.  Unfortunately, said standard space will change again in a month or two after I move in, but…there’s not much I can do, so I just have to roll with it.

Wando was pretty, and is bigger than I expected, and their beach is nicer than Jindo’s.  There are 4 Canadians and one really irritating American.  I’d like to go back sometime, but it’s an irritating part of the province to get to.

I’m contemplating heading out to the expat bar nearby, but I’m not sure I want to go.  Frankly, as a single woman, sitting at a bar here in Korea will just equate to me endlessly fending off and disappointing hopeful and horny expats, and that’s not my idea of a fun evening.

*sigh*
