Mom: "So, you'll keep in touch and keep me posted and email me as soon as you can, right?"
Me: "Yeah, Mom. Korea is supposedly the most wired country in the world. I'll keep in touch."
Mom: "Maybe we should get webcams."
Me: "Yeah, that's an idea..."
Mom: "Or maybe you could start a blog." So I can stalk you night and day and make sure you're not starving to death and wasting away and you haven't been mugged and you're safe and you're making friends and you're still alive. (Okay, I added that last part, but I'm pretty sure my mom was thinking all those things when she suggested a blog.)
So I'm blogging. Hopefully this serves as a great way for me to share my amazing and funny experiences with friends and family and of course, my mom, and NOT a personal bitch session about all the things I miss from home. If this happens, feel free to keep me in line. I have a tendency to bitch.
Whew. So the countdown is almost complete! I leave the great (red) state of Idaho Saturday, April 26th for Portland. My journey stops there for a few days so I can visit (more) friends and family AND continue to justify spending $$ on "food I'll miss" and "clothes I won't be able to buy." Sweet. From there, I'm not quite sure. As of today I'm still waiting on my Visa. Once I have that, I'll get my flight itinerary from Portland to Seoul. I'm crossing my fingers for a layover in Tokyo and not L.A. Cross yer finger for me...
