Moving to Korea
So this doesn't have anything to do with KPop but it does have something to do with Korea... P.s. I'm crying as I write this, it's very difficult.
As many of you know, I will be making a life altering move to Seoul next month and it's so close it's terrifying. My parents are even freaking out because this isn't like my trip to Ireland, I'm not going to Seoul for two weeks to study I am MOVING. So for my parents to see their only child spreading her wings at 31 and taking off to a forieng country where they will have no way of rescuing her is very scary for them.
seeing my dad this terrified made me cry, he raised me as a single father until I was 10 and he remarried. When he saw my Facebook post about me disconnecting my phone everything became more real for him.
several previous customers whom I served coffee to over the years and even now, are supporting me wholeheartedly and helping me with jobs and contacts. I'm so grateful for this and I love my customers so much! If I miss anything from Seattle it will be my loyal customers. They have shown me that I am needed and very much loved: I always figured I was just another barista and had no idea how much of an impact I made on people.
my temp job here at Post Alley has also brought me a new fan base: the owner included. When the owner and her sister found out I am Jewish, they latched on to me. I adore my boss and her family and the feelings are mutual they treat me like one of the family and are not that excited about me leaving but are also very proud of me.
My year working here at Firehouse coffee also brought me a lot of joy and new friends. The owners are Korean so that helped with my language abilities and they've given me a lot of tips for surviving in Seoul as an expat.
September is just around the corner and my adventure will begin. I fly out on the 13th and who knows what will happen after that. I'm taking this one day at a time. The world is my oyster at this point and who knows, I may find the perfect partner while I'm there: whether it be a man or a woman I don't know. Either way, I'm positive I will have a happy ending. I also really appreciate all the love I've received from the vingle community. I love you guys!
