Tomorrow marks the first month of my Korean journey. On my first night here, I sure as hell did not think I would reach this mark so quickly and with so much happiness. I left my acting career, friends, family and boyfriend in South Africa on a mystical New Year’s Eve adventure. Somewhere between time zones I think I skipped the “3…2…1 Happy New Year!”, so a part of me still feels like it’s 2015. I know my body had no cooking clue what time it was for at least the first two weeks. I never thought jet lag would hit me, so that bitch showed me why people pop pills to avoid her.
So why am I sitting here writing this blog? Am I trying to avoid Sunday blues? Yes. Am I craving some writing time? Yes. But that’s not it. Since I’ve got on that plane to Korea, I have learnt so much that I just have an overwhelming urge to share all of this crazy, mystical Korea weirdness! Even if my only reader will be 95 year old me reminiscing over my impulsive 20’s and that time people still used computers.
My first few posts will mainly be about:
- Angels in Korea
- The food!!!
- My day
- Our Acting Company
Somewhere in that mix, I’m sure my lurking (ridiculous) existential crisis will stick out it’s zitty little face, but after a few insightful bus rides, I am not ‘bovvered’.
So far, Korea has been an absolute roller coaster of super highs and super lows and everything in between. I have already discovered so much about life and myself that I can’t wait to share. This was the first little step. I can’t wait to see where I am going to leap to in this next year.
Here we go!
Hello from a -17*C South Korea.
