#Personal – Mountain Goat

Schermafbeelding 2013-03-08 om 22.52.39A quick update of what I’ve been doing in Seoul so far. Two weeks have almost passed already, can you believe it? I’m happy that time is flying, because that indicates that I’m having quite a good time right? To be honest I didn’t take a lot of pictures yet. Sometimes I’m so overwhelmed by what I see (or super annoyed by the high hills I’ve to climb up in order to reach the university) that I just forget to snap a picture!

#Personal – Arriving in Seoul

SAMSUNG While you are reading this I’ll be asleep in my Korean bunk bed. Usually I post a ‘#Personal’ every friday but since I didn’t do so last friday, and have a lot to tell, I thought I’d might as well post a personal post on thursday instead of friday. Yesterday I arrived in Seoul, South Korea, to study at Hanyang University. I’ll be staying here for almost four months, 111 days to be exact. To be honest I’m still a bit scared about it all, because now that I’m at the start of it all four months seems like a very long time. My boyfriend Chris will be coming over for sure and my parents might do so as well, but just knowing that I won’t see my house, my country, home town, other family, friends and kitty for such a long time scares me. According to Chris it will be over in no time and I should enjoy it the maximum. Let me give you a little update of what I did so far (and to be honest his past two days did fly by)

Schermafbeelding 2013-02-17 om 22.02.31 Over one and a half week I’ll be flying out to Seoul, South Korea where I’ll be staying for a little less then four months. To be honest It’s scaring me so much right now. I love to travel but at the same time I love being home. This might sound really weird and come very unexpected, seeing all the traveling I do, but I actually have a very bad case of homesickness (especially when I have no one I feel 100% comfortable with around me). When I went on school camping trips I used to cry by myself so now and then. One thing I did learn from that time was to never let my homesickness take over and go home (or not go on a trip at all) because in the end the school trips used to be a lot of fun! This week I prepared a lot of things for my upcoming departure…
