oh dear

Last night I passed out right after work. It's about 6AM now. I've been up, without being able to go back to sleep, since four. For the first time in Korea, there was a mosquito in my apartment. It bit my left thigh. It repeatedly buzzed near my ear. I was sleepily convinced that I had gotten it that last time and now I could go to sleep. I tried putting a pillow over my head, curling into the sheets, snuggling my body next to a pillow, covering all exposed body parts. Nothing helped. I hate mosquitoes. The universe was telling me something. So, I got up and cleaned my kitchen. Emptied my fridge. I did a load of laundry. I took out my garbage. I went to the store. The countdown has begun.

My parents will be here in 24 hours. The new Harry Potter comes out in 3 days. Denise leaves Korea in 2 weeks. Intensives (9 hours of teaching for a month) start the day after. I go to Thailand in a month and a half.

I feel like when I return from vacation in September, I'm going to be on the home stretch of this contract, and most likely my time in Korea. With my parents coming I feel like this rollercoaster is reaching it's peak. I better hold on and enjoy the ride while it lasts, right? Meanwhile, I better figure out what I'm going to do next.

In other news, oh yes, SWEET BUNS!
