Welp, after an unplanned hiatus that went on far longer than it should have, I have — more or less — returned to blogging! So much has happened to me in the past . . . *counts on fingers* five months. My work commute had finally caught up with me (it’s amazing how exhausting bus rides can be), and then work had just exploded in my face starting in June, so my mental and physical energy had been depleted. Oh, then a massive heatwave known as “hot hell” came to Korea in mid-July to August and that just made me not want to go on my computer at home. Amidst all that, I focussed on having a social life with so many different people and event . . . and then another big change threw my life into chaos . . . but for the better in the long run. Instead of rambling on in cryptic tones about the past five months, let me give you all the condensed version of my disappearance.

Recent Realities Vol. 10

I’m alive, everyone, haha! I’ve just been busy with work. I’ve had to play catch-up after my spring holidays, and just as I was about to be caught up, I was told to go support a different programme for three weeks . . . so that has been crazy on my end. Amidst work, I’ve been keeping myself busy with my hobbies (video games and fanfics) and keeping up with my social life. Blogging has clearly taken a back seat, but I’m fine with it. I will blog when I want to, and I am here to write a new Recent Realities post. The last time I wrote for this column was back in September, so I’ve actually had a lot of happenings since, but I’ve chosen the best highlights in for this overdue post. Warning — there’s a lot of good food in this post!

Aigoo Adventures: Guam 2018

Aigoo Adventures

I have went on another adventure! I made a return trip to Guam because I wanted to see my bestie again and to see if the rain would leave me alone this time. End verdict: it was a great trip. I had a wonderful time in Guam, and my only regret was leaving my best friend. This trip gave me the relaxation I had sought for. It was nice escaping work and Korea for a bit. This is was a muchly needed vacation!

Driving Drama

Oh, wow, I cannot believe it’s April. In February, the Olympics took over my life, but I also had mentioned doing one other task — re-obtaining my driver’s licence. I lost my previous licence because of a regulation change I wasn’t grandfathered into. This process took much longer than I’d wanted, and it has caused me so much stress that I escaped reality with a lot of gaming. I will say right now that I never liked driving, but in order to prepare myself, I grudgingly forced myself to get a Korean and an international licence. This process was filled with unnecessary drama, and all I can say is that I am relieved it’s all done.
