Moving Sucks!

Once again I’m packing up my home and getting ready for the big move. Argh moving!!! At the moment I’m full of mixed feelings; I’m excited to be leaving my job and also that my parents and brother are finally coming out to Asia to see me. Then we will leave together to go traveling around S.E. Asia ~ I can’t wait. But on the other hand, I’m sad, really, really sad to be leaving my friends, my apartment the art scene the big city. I’m not really a small city gal, I love to get lost and find something new but in Calgary I guess I can get lost in the suburbs. I must admit for the first little while it will be new again and I will have to find my way around and I’m really hoping that things have changed but so far I can see that the city has gotten really expensive.

My apartment in one day of organizing has already changed and there’s no going back and I’m feeling cold. I’m moving out earlier than my original plan as I had mentioned to a neighbor that my place is free at the end of March. Well their building will be torn down in the first week of March ~ hhmmmmm I was in the same position this time last year were my building was being torn down. Well they took one look at my place and wanted it within the first five minutes of seeing which was the same reaction I had when I saw this place. Korea has some nasty apartments that in western standards are unlivable. Anyway I’m moving out early which will save me cash in the long run as well as I get to visit people in Daegu for longer too!

This is indeed the year of changes. My little group of, “Seoul Sistas” is dwindling fast, Irene is now living in DC, I will be going back to Calgary, Heejeong will go to Beijing for a while but will come to Calgary for a few months vefore returning home to Korea, Nado is trying hard to get a design job overseas preferably in Sweden. My other friends; Youngjoo is in L.A. and Nayan in Canada for a short while before heading back to India. Whaaaah!

By the way:
Say hay boke-mahn he pah du say oh! 
새해 복 많이 받으십시오! 
Best wishes for a happy new year!

Kung Hei Fat Choy!
Congratulations on the New Year and be prosperous!

This is my livingroom before moving (shot on my new Canon) ~ the after pic coming soon ;p

I can only imagine the depth of your mixed feelings, Sharon! I certainly hope you'll have better experiences in Calgary this time around...
