Since her last road trip around Victoria, Miss Hoggy has awkwardly left no news of her whereabouts to the outside world for the last four weeks. Did the alcohol consumption in Healesville got her into trouble? Or did the domestic road trip failed to cure THE travel bug, and now remained of a husk of a dreamer? What really happened?
What really happened was…
Miss Hoggy was kidnapped by the very EVIL creature called Assignment. Yes, I’d like to think that Assignment and its plural form are alive to test my already horrible time management skill, and yet, I threw myself at them year after year because I love the academic life all that much. Well, I don’t love it, but for an almost-physiotherapist, it was a necessity if I am to continue to pursue my interest in linguistics and teaching, via distance learning while planning my next overseas teaching engagement. Who thought that it was a good idea, again?
Travelling through some sunny stories and tragic tales (not-so-tragic, I just like the alliteration) in the past weeks, there’s finally some tentative Home Leaving News.
For two weeks from mid-July, I’ll be travelling on the road trip along the Southern States of the USA. Starting from Raleigh, NC, I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll have enough time to drive all the way down to New Orleans, LA. And then, straight after, I’ll be flying up to the ever quirky Montreal to visit Julie, a dear friend and my former Georgia travelling mate.
This is by far is the most important news. This is the reason why I was actually pre-occupied with the last three weeks. Interviews after interviews, I FINALLY landed a job in a public school in Buyeo, Chungnam-do, on the west coast of South Korea. Not to exaggerate the FINALLY, but the story is, that I’ve been trying very hard to find the time to actually go to South Korea on a long term basis. However, real life has its own idea to change and mess every Human plan there is. So, I’m very stoked that I’ll be living and breathing Korean *cough* drama for 12 months.
There, this is just a preview to what’s home leaving is like for the next year, I suppose. Lots of food and adventure in two very different part of the world on When Miss Hoggy Leaves Home.
