Mood: trying to find the words
Music: David Guetta ft. Akon - Sexy Bitch

Today I woke up ridiculously early and spent a couple hours in bed listening to people scream about the World Cup. Around 6:30 - still drunk from last night - I jumped out of bed and declared, "If nobody wants to ride their bikes with me I'll go by myself." So I went on a drunken bike ride at 7 o'clock in the morning. I tried to go downtown, ended up near the Bus Terminal (which is nowhere near downtown), and went home. It was an excellent start to the day, if you ignore the old lady who deliberately walked into my path and yelled at me when I almost ran into her (bitch).

Then I tried to nap and failed. Then I did my laundry. Then I tried to take another nap and failed. Then I tried to take a nap while sunning on the roof and failed. Then I went for lunch. Then I spent a few hours in the park (what a surprise). Then I spent a few hours planning out every weekend for the rest of the summer. I'm tired of boring weekends. I want to do what I promised myself I'd do back before I came to Korea: do one new thing every week.
Since nobody is interested in going to Russia with me in September, I'm actually kind of thinking about saving my Russia trip for January. I mean, let's be honest, I need to experience a Russian winter at least once in my life. Besides, if I'm going to do this trip alone I might as well do it when I have a lot of time. It's just, well, I've dreamt about going to Russia for years, and now I'm going to go - and I'll have no one to share my excitement with, because, well, I'll be doing it myself, and nobody else really gives a fuck. But whatever. I'm going to Russia, bitches! Eventually. Maybe. I hope.

Instead I think I may stay in Korea for September. I'm thinking about going up to Gangwon-do (Sokcho/Chuncheon/Gangneung) and spending a week camping or hiking or some shit. It'd be cheap and I feel as if I wouldn't be able to do Gangwon in a weekend trip. But... maybe I'll just do that Malaysia/Singapore trip I've been thinking about. Or maybe Cambodia/Vietnam, or Laos/Myanmar. I don't know. Whatever.

If anyone has any suggestions for temples to visit, places to go, or things to do this summer I'm all ears. Plans subject to change. And as always, everyone is welcome to come.

I am currently eating a Hawaiian pizza from 피자마루 (Pizza Maru) because Pizza School was too busy. It's actually quite good. Gotta love 6,000W pizzas.

Which places were you planning to visit in Russia? Because you might also want to think about hours of daylight--Petersburg in January is, for instance, going to be dark almost all day long that time of year.

I'd meet you in Russia if I could. I will settle for pictures.

Very good point... if I visit in September I'll only see Khabarovsk, if I go in January I'll probably spend 2-4 weeks there and, um, I don't really know what I'll see. I may need to reconsider this plan. sigh.

yeah, but I have the choice of 6 days in Russia in September or up to 2 months in Russia in January/February. Ideally I'd have 2 months in the summer, but unless I pull a runner that's not going to happen. If I don't have anyone to go with then I'm just going to spend a few months there... eventually... I don't know. We'll see.

Russian winters are warmer then before. We haven't got a truly Russian winter for ages (exept the last winter, of course). :)
Anyway it is really very good news!!! Are you going to visit Moscow?

I don't know if I'll visit Moscow... maybe, but only if I go during January/February. If I go in September I'll only have 6 days, and I think I'll stick to Khabarovsk/Vladivostok. It's too expensive/takes too much time to go to Moscow from Korea unless I have a lot of time. :(

I'd love to experience a Russian winter. Admittedly, I'm sure I'd regret ever saying that the second it happens. ;)
