13 days!

This summer has flown by. While reflecting on what I've actually accomplished in the past 2 months, which isn't much, I realized how little I have been bored and how much fun I have been having. Between day trips with the NJ crowd and weekend trips to weddings and to visit friends, I have been able to see and do almost everything I set out to do this summer! Hiking, running, finding a pool, tubing, wine tastings, outings with the family, trips to the beach, to CT, to DC, to Bmore, and the list goes on. It's going to be bittersweet to actually take off on that Thursday morning, but I know the adventure and opportunities that lay ahead are once in a lifetime and certainly something I will never forget.

So now I need recommendations for what I should do next year! I know I will change my mind a million times before that time even gets close to rolling around, but here's what I'm thinking so far:

1. Stay another year in Korea
2. Move to Spain/South America/France with my new Australian boyfriend
3. Go to grad school and get my MBA
4. Go work on a vineyard in Napa
5. Tour with Phish and sell grilled cheese. ha right.

And I am very open to new suggestions.

This past weekend was really amazing. I went down to DC on Thursday and had a wonderful evening with the girls where we were able to catch up and gossip over a few bottles of wine. What could be more perfect!? Then on Friday Henry and I went out to the best dinner at Bourbon Steak! If you haven't been you should go check it out. I think the steak was the least impressive thing there (says the vegetarian). It's worth going if for nothing but the duck fat fries and truffle butter rolls they hook you up with before your meal even begins! The weekend was a great way to say an official goodbye to everyone that's made the past 3 years in DC totally amazing. I will miss you all!! Man I sound like I'm being sent off to die or something...I will return :)

Now it's back to preparing to leave. I have to sell my car this week and go into NYC Tuesday for my Korean consulate interview. I think the "interview" consists of "What's your name," "Do you do drugs," "Did you graduate college." So that shouldn't take more than a few minutes.

Have a great weekend and the next post will probably be in my last few days before departure!!!!

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY Suzi!! I hope those Koreans take you out for an amazing birthday celebration!! See you for 25 shots shortly!
