Put down your cell phone and go dance in the rain

September 2, 2010

Okay.  One thing I am learning during my time here in Korea is I don’t immediately look for the positive in situations.  I generally see myself as having a good outlook on life, but man-o-day, this country has certainly done a number on me.

So, because Kels has been instrumental in helping me to do that and because I couldn’t do this without her, this post is for her.  🙂

A list of recent things that have been incredibly life-giving and that have happened in this country.  Crazy, I know.

1.  The fact that Korea brings people together.  I probably wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for H, and now E and K live in Busan and every time we’re together it is wonderful.  The crazy thing is that we all have lived in H’burg and it’s amazing how much that bonds us.  I LOVE YOU GIRLS!

2.  Dancing to live SALSA music in the rain and mud with said girls.  OH MAN SO FUN.  We had a blast and it was one of those moments where everything was perfect and while you were in that moment you knew it was perfect.  Capish?

3.  Dancing in bars to wonderful music.  Enough said.

4.  Green tea plantations covered in a mystical mist?  Beautiful.

5.  ARIEL.  CAME TO KOREA.  TO VISIT US.  AND IT WAS MAGICAL.

6.  Je-ju Island!  Dani!  Kels!  Waterfalls!  Beaches!  Sun!  Fresh Air!  Friends!  Walks At Night!  Heart To Hearts!  Gecko’s!  G&T!

7.  Jumping pictures.  Any time, any place.  I am THERE.

8. Norae-bonging with Kels to our theme song (Jump by Van Halen).  We ROCKED that shit.

9.  The discovery of STUFFED FRENCH TOAST and ice cream in a bag.

10.  Potential happy things: fall, hiking endeavors, Korean Thanksgiving vacation which will include: beautiful mountains, “we’re the three best friends that anyone ever had”, colorful leaves, fresh air, did I mention hiking in beautiful mountains?, an epic Thanksgiving party with our Busan favorites, boots/vests/scarves, aaaaaaaaaaaand our big epic kick ass trip of a lifetime.
