a real update.

i haven't posted much lately because i don't feel like i have much to post about.

winter has been miserable this year, with too much snow/ice and single-digit temperatures. i've basically been hibernating for the past two months, leaving my apartment only when necessary. which is fine, really. i don't mind being a homebody, and i have to admit that corey and i have crossed a respectable number of movies and tv shows off of our to-watch list. (by the way, omg, downton abbey.)

however, there's been one unfortunate side effect of being a part-time hermit in a grey, cloudy, freezing winter: i'm extremely SAD. as in seasonal affective disorder. i was actually beginning to worry about myself and my decision to stay in korea longer -- i'm not happy, i'm not depressed... i'm just here. i was worried that i was actually unhappy and somehow just not registering or accepting it. then i realized that everyone else seems to be in the same mood. you'd think it's an actual infectious disease at my school -- nearly all the teachers (aka my friends) are just gloomy right now.

last week, the sun came out. the past few days, the temperatures have actually stayed above freezing during the day. and i've noticed an incredible change in my disposition.

winter sucks, y'all. like a lot.

so, with all of the general bleh i've been feeling, it was very exciting to realize that i'll be home in less than a month! scheduling my time, planning activities, and dreaming of eating all the mexican food i can find has cheered me considerably. i've been on a psycho budget lately so i can afford to enjoy myself when i'm home. (which basically means: eat. eat everything. all of it.)

since this is a convenient way to communicate to a lot of people, here's a rough guide for my time home:
february 27 - arrive in tulsa.
march 6 - head down to austin.
march 7-17 - sxsw!
march 26ish? - head up to the dallas/ft. worth area.
april 4ish - head back to oklahoma, where i'll bounce between tulsa and norman.
may 18 - fly to san francisco.
may 20 - leave for south korea.

some of these dates are flexible, obviously, so let's start making plans! i want to see everyone! and do fun (cheap) things! things which should be planned and scheduled around eating (mexican) food. :)

whatcha wanna do, family and friends?!
