Because I was unable to take leave during the summer, I waited until September or October to take some time off, and I ultimately decided that I didn’t want to wait. I requested September 15 to 26 off, and with the weekends, I’m technically off from September 13 to 28, so I have about sixteen glorious days where I don’t have to think about work. Even better is that I no longer have school to bog my hols down either. WHOO HOO! Unfortunately, I’m low on funds, so I am unable to travel outside of Korea. Instead, I’ve decided to focus on staycationing . . . though I will go out of town to another province with a friend on an overnight trip! But a majority of my plans consist of exploring more of Seoul amidst all my other errands and tasks I need to do. Here is my list of things to do:

. . . And so on. This list is not complete X_X; I know there are more stuff for me to do, so I’ll do them as I go along. I know I will not accomplish all of the ones on my second list, but I will still try to do a good chunk of them! But really, I look forward to my first real vacation since the one I took in February 2013, which didn’t quite feel like a vacation since I still had school to worry about and since my two-week vacation was split up to where I was off week one, and then worked week two, and was off again on week three.
Well, just two more days of work, and then I’ll be free! Friday at 5:00pm is when I can activate my vacation-mode. Whoo hoo!
