2 years and 300 posts

Today is my two-year anniversary in Korea. Last year, on my anniversary, it was just a few days before I left for few week trip in America. I wrote that post as a play on a break-up letter.

At the time, I had come to a point when I was really ready to return to my homeland. I knew that my time in America would be temporary and that I’d returning to Korea. As I look ahead to my final weeks here, I don’t think I’ll be coming back—although I will miss Korean fashion mascots (that's the Teenie Weenie behind me).

This past year in Korea has been good. I’ve learned a lot about living in a foreign culture, and learned a lot about myself. I wouldn’t give that up for anything. But, its time to go home.

A friend who is now married to Korea told me that now he's in a sort of limbo. Whens he's back home in Canada, he misses Korea, and when he's in Korea, he misses Canada. I'm afraid that will happen to me--or already has.

Also, this is my 300th post. I wrote about my 200th post, and “101th” post previously. Amazing, last year in roughly the same time, I wrote 200 posts, compared to about 100 for this year.

The most popular posts (according to Google Analytics) from the past year are:
My blog is the 4th result under a Google search for Geoje, which is kinda cool. I suppose this biggest change in the past year, has been the creep toward sarcasm—which has unintentionally offended (see my “You’re Welcome” series.)

All in all, I’m proud of the blog, and happy about the past two years in Korea.
