Great Expectations

Well, I'm on my way. As I sit in the hotel room here in Kamloops, I can't help but reflect on what I'm leaving behind. I have so many good friends in Grande Prairie and the rest of Alberta. There are so many special people who have touched my life. Friends, family, co-workers... when I try to think about everyone I care about, the list seems endless. To all of you, I can truly and honestly say that I love you, and I will miss all of you terribly.

Looking to tomorrow, we will be driving to Vancouver to visit the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea. There, I will be picking up my E-2 visa, which will allow me to work as an English teacher in South Korea. I will also be getting back my passport and my university degree, both of which I mailed to them a couple of weeks ago. It was a strange feeling, booking an overseas flight without my passport in-hand. Hopefully, everything will go well at the consulate tomorrow; I'm confident there will be no snags.

With any luck, my next posting will be from Vancouver, visa in hand and raring to go!
