Man. Three years ago I set off on this crazy journey to go halfway around the world to learn a new language, experience a new culture, and do my master's. It seemed like such a long time then but now here we are, my final week in Korea.
There's just, a deluge of emotions going on right now. It's really hard to explain. I'm excited to go home of course. I miss my friends and family and of course I miss my home country. But at the same time, it's kinda sad that I have to leave now.
I have a lot of issues with Korea, but regardless of that this has been my home for the last three years. I've settled into a life of my own with knowledge of where to go, what to do, who to meet, etc. And now it just feels like I'm ripping up that life to bring it back to the one I had three years ago.
So yea, this last week has been kinda rough and I'm sure this coming week will be the same, if not worse.
The last week saw two trips to Seoul. The first was a short day trip because I went to do a programming test for a job application. The test itself wasn't exactly easy, but it was made even more difficult due to the fact that it was all in Korean. Needless to say I didn't do well.
But they compensated me for the trip there and hey, free trip to Seoul. So I tried to make the most of it and meet some friends as well, considering how my time here is limited. That was a nice night, but I failed massively on time that day and somehow all my temporal obligations that day was off.
Then, I went back to Seoul on the weekend to see more friends. Another one of our friends who left a year ago came back to visit, so it was really nice to just hang out with him and the others once again. But again, bittersweet cause who knows when I'll see these people again.
I'll probably do a more in depth blog post sometime on my other blog about my experience with this program. I'll likely also do another post here next week as well, even though I'll be back in Canada. Honestly feels weird man. I've already done like 150 posts with the KGSP tag.
