this is me

헬싱키에 돌아와요

Another quick post, because typing on my phone is a pain in the ass.

I'm at the ferry terminal in Tallinn, waiting to go back to Helsinki. It's sad... I've wanted to come to Estonia since I was what, 17? I finally come here and now I have to leave.

You know, the more I think about it, the less I want to teach for another year - especially in Korea. I just don't think I like Korea as much as I thought I had. Am I settling for what I'm used to? I got such a kick out of finally coming to Estonia... And I just don't care about Asia anymore. I don't get the same thrill that I got here or in Mongolia. I'm not passionate about it, at least not yet. Maybe I need a break. Or a chance to regain perspective. I think it's probably just a phase. I don't want to call my time in Korea a wash. I'm pretty sure I'll still do the whole studying Korean at a university thing. I've been toying with the idea of going to Russia after I do that. Maybe that's a good idea. I should definitely look harder into that...
