While I've been enjoying the time off and a lack of stress, I've also been looking ahead. I just celebrated my 29th birthday on Wednesday (and now I'm 30 in Korea!) But I'm not worried about it; I neither feel nor look old so that's a plus. It is weird to think about, however. A lot has changed since I was 24 and new to Korea. I've changed a lot. I've watched a lot of things in Korea change as well.

I had my three and four month post-surgery check-ups recently. Everything is still going well with the healing; my eyes are clear and there are no problems. The dryness is getting better as time goes on and winter starts to wind to a close, so my eyes are getting clearer. My next (and last) check-up is at the end of next month before I go home. Can't believe that it's been over four months already since I had surgery, and less than two months until home, but the past few months have passed quickly thanks to reduced teaching time at school and vacation. I'll head back to school for a week next week, then onto a few weeks of spring vacation before the new school year. Right now my current (slight) irritation is working out flight details, and trying to find a compromise with my school. Crossing my fingers that it will work out in the end!
