Now that I am finally leaving for Korea in a few hours I can finally stop having a conversation that I have had roughly 9,345 in the past two months since I was hired to teach English in Seoul. I had my first one with some friends of a friends the first day I got the job and hopefully have had the last one ten minutes ago when the security guard who was chosen to additionally screen me started asking me what I was going to do in Korea. The conversation goes pretty much as followed:
Person: So, you’re going to Korea?
Me: Yes, I am
Person: So, are you excited?
Me: Ya, it’s a pretty big adventure
Person: How long are you going for?
Me: A year
Person: Wow! What an adventure!
Me: Ya, I’m pretty excited
and that’s pretty much it. I never want to have this conversation again.
