The road not taken

With 10 days to go, the final question is this: Do I regret coming to Korea?

And the answer: Not for one minute.

Do I love Korea? No. Do I like it? Yes, there are many wonderful things about Korea.

Was moving here the right decision for this point in my life? Absolutely. I have no regrets about where and how I spent the past year.

This year has been an amazing experience and despite its ups and downs, I'm so thankful to have taken this circuitous journey into the "real" world. Living and working in Korea forced me to discover myself -- an independent woman -- in ways that staying at home never would have.

And while I never thought I'd use my university degree to make kiddie arts and crafts, it's been a fun journey.

We each have our own path.

Where is yours taking you?


  1. that box looks fantastic!!

    ps. we're awesome!

  2. Great post. Very deep.
    I am glad that you chose to spend a year in Korea as I am sure you are a different person now than you were before the journey.
    Right now I have no idea where my path is taking me as my steps seems too far off in the distance but that is life....one race complete only to start another.
    Happy 10 more days!

  3. I feel growing up in the area that we both came from, the "real" world is so rigid, and has such a defined sense of what a young person has to do with themselves immediately out of college in order to become a success story. Don't let someone else's set of principles define your measure of success. You've been a productive member of society, and even more so, you've had the guts to follow an ambition that has taken you across the world. If thats not the "real" world, then I don't know what is!

    You have been living a real-er life than many of your contemporaries sitting in a cubicle back in America. Don't let anyone hold you down, Erin!
