My huge apologies for being so quiet in here the last couple of months. The reason being was that I simply did not have the motivation to write anything. I found myself in a little bit of a rut a while back. I had finished college and was due to start working full time in the hotel that I have been in for the past four years. However at the beginning of the summer there was very little hours there and I wasn't getting enough hours during the week. This led me to applying for countless jobs but with no luck. However in the past two months work picked up and I got a lot of hours and so work became extremely busy. With summer coming to an end now there is even more hours available and hopefully work will continue to be busy. This most certainly not a permanent job. This is only for the next ten months or so, in order to save money for my travel plans next year. Lots of decisions and plans have been made in the past months for next year when I finally leave this small town.
Firstly myself and my younger sister are going on holiday for two weeks without our parents. We are heading to Seoul South Korea. It sounds like a very random place but that will be a another blog post for another day, however I will say that we are extremely excited about it.
Secondly I have decided to enroll in an online course to qualify to Teach English as a Foreign Language. I was looking this up a couple of months ago and decided against it but two of my close friends recently moved to Beijing China in order to teach English and they are having the time of their lives. For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be a teacher but I didn't put it down in my college application. I also think that with this qualification I have even more opportunities for travel and see the world. I am fully qualified in hospitality and even though i do love my work recently my heart is just not in it as much as it used. I think that I need to take a little break from it and that is what I plan to do next year when I start my travels.
My mind is extremely focused on next summer and if I am being quite honest it is the only thing that is getting me through work and life at the minute, knowing that this time next year I will be far away from here is music to my ears.
At the minute the plan for after I come back from Korea is to go to Canada with a friend of mine, This is not the same person that was originally supposed to go. So the plan is at the minute to leave around the end of June the beginning of July, however I have a back up plan in case Canada goes wrong again. That is to fall back on the TEFL (Teach English as a Foreign Language).
So this was just a little update on what I have been up to the past few months. I know I have been quite boring but I am back to writing again and hopefully I will keep the motivation and inspiration to keep posting. I will doing a couple pf posts based purely on Korea. I will explain why we chose Korea of all places to travel to.
Thank you for reading.
