I should know better

Despite a year of actually starting to do interesting stuff (my first 6 months here were a little more on the reclusive side), I have still apparently not learned that if I don't write about stuff immediately, I won't do it at all. Argh. Sorry about not writing about my sweet hiking trip. I actuallythought of lots of sweet stuff and genius insights, but never jotted them down. In the future I will either:

a) blog promptly
b) not make silly promises

Sorry for the absence lately. I haven't really done anything too interesting, though I did put up another album on the photo site. Had a girlfriend for a while, spent a lot of time hanging out downtown, broke up, spend a lot of time hanging around my friend's college area, and that brings you up to speed about the past month and a half.

Mom's in Korea now, with a friend, and they've been having a good time. I've been informed that they did lots and lots of stuff in Seoul (I was still here in Daegu working), and they'll be spending the next week touring around a little sub-tropical Island in the south, then working their way up the east coast, then they'll come to Daegu next week. I'm sure next weekend I'll post some nice pictures.

Also, in less than 1 month, just after Mom heads back to the USA, summer vacation will roll around. From Tuesday, July 29th until Sunday, August 3rd, George and I will go scope out Tokyo. We've got our plane tickets and hostel reservations, though we don't know exactly what we're going to do. We're staying in Shinjuku, which is supposed to be a pretty happening place, and I'm really hoping to spend a day climbing Mt. Fuji. I know I said I wouldn't make any more pointless promises, but...I swear I'll put up some pictures!

Also, I'm thinking that in December, I'm going to do a sweet little tour of Southeastern Asia. I'll fly into Singapore, work my way up through Malaysia, and then hit up Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam. I think I'm going to spend a month grabbing a CELTA certification while I'm there, though I don't know whether I'll do it in Chiang Mai or Ho Chi Minh City. Either way, I'll travel from December until early January, then take the course until early February, then head back to the US for a while. If any of you want to join me for some of this stuff...that'd be cool.
