Can you believe it??? I have finally taken some time to update my website.  Nothing major, but just a small update to let you all know I'm still in Korea as of February 2003.  I have lots of plans in the works, so please stay tuned for a big update!.

Welcome to my webpage with all the information about my new and exciting adventures living in Korea. I have now been in Korea almost 3 years - unbelievable as I originally only planned to be here one year.  Alas, here I am 3 years later. 

I apologize for the lack of updates lately, but I have been very busy.  It seems I always apologize for lack of updates, but perhaps it's  because I am accustomed to life in Korea and nothing surprises me anymore.  I better take that back because there is always something that arises when I least expect it.
For any doubters, I was SUCCESSFUL in my
squat pot challenge.  In fact, I have now lasted almost 3 years without using the dreaded pot and I am STILL determined to last the ENTIRE time in Korea without using one.

For those of you who don't know, I have a boyfriend I've been seeing for the past year.  He's a great guy and we have a wonderful relationship.  (Roger, if you're reading this, you were right.)

For those of you who haven't visited my website before, please look around.  I'm sure my experiences may help make or break your decision to come to Korea. Also, please click
here to read my previous introduction as it has information I'm sure a newbie will find beneficial.  

For the most part, I've had a great experience (with a few hiccups on the way), but it is only what you make it.  If you think Korea will be just like home, don't even think about packing your bags to come here.  You must be mature and come with an open mind and LOTS and LOTS of patience. 

I sincerely hope you find this site helpful if you are considering coming to Korea.
