I can't believe it's been over a month since I last wrote...well, actually I can believe it. It's been so busy lately that I rarely have time to sit down, let alone take time to write a blog. So here's the breakdown of why I've been so busy. Lend Me A Tenor- Laura and I are producing our first show under our production company, Standing Room Only, and this show has consumed my life. I'm the production manager and have been working tirelessly on this show for over a month. It's going to be a great show, but there's so much to do before it opens in 15 days. I don't sleep well at night because my head is full of things I need to get done for the show.
We're moving house this weekend. Luke and Laura bought a house just outside of town a few weeks ago and we've been in the process of packing up and cleaning the current house in order to be able to move out this weekend. As I sit in my room writing this, there are boxes of books, empty suitcases ready to be filled with my clothes, and a closet packed full of already packed bags/boxes. Moving is nutty when I won't be able to help with it! I've got to work all weekend so I won't be able to help pack up the trailer and move house this weekend. Sorry guys!
In a new development regarding life after New Zealand- I've received an offer for work at an elementary school in Ilsan, South Korea. Looks like I'm moving back in February! Still have to sort out the contract and get the visa, but it looks promising. New Zealand has been an interesting year to say the least, but I need to take care of some things financially before I can go live like this again. I'm 26 years old and shouldn't be this concerned about money, so I need to take care of that problem and then I can go live wherever and however I want. Even if that means living in a yurt in New Caledonia (not that I'm planning on that...but you never know).
Well, the sun is shining and summer is a promise away so I'm off now, to start my day and get some things accomplished while the day is still mine! Below are some pictures from my weekend trip to see my first co-teacher in Korea, Kowoon. We had a great time just hanging out and it was a pleasant surprise to find an old friend living in New Zealand when I moved here. It's just nice.
I had to explain why the store name was so funny to me. In SK, Costco is where you go for foreign food. In New Zealand though, well Kosco is where you go for asian food, mostly korean food. How terribly ironic.
