Sad to see so many leaving, but congratulations on moving on to another part of your lives.  :wink:

Leaving does sound kind of nice.

I'll be leaving next August myself, unless my new job gives me a march / April start instead of September, then I'll renew once more, but leave halfway through. (to keep working until my new job)

Add me to the list.  Just got back from my summer holiday in England and realised it's actually paradise compared to Korea.  Will be leaving in March (completion of my sixth year here).

I've been feeling this, too. It comes and goes, but lately it's been sticking around for longer periods. I thought maybe all I needed to do is to move to a different area of Korea, but now I'm thinking my time is just up here.   

I can't say how I'll feel next year, though, but I guess I'll start putting feelers out to see what I might find.

Just ordered a Shure MV88+ mic for shooting my videos.
Nice. That's a good mic. You using the MOTIV audio app with that? You can change the polar pattern (stereo, mono cardioid, bi-directional, and RAW mid-side) and adjust the mic gain, compression, etc. Maybe you already know all this, but just letting you know in case you didn't.

Hate to be Riyadh ya, but it's good to see people moving up and moving on!
Best of luck to you, and check in once in a while... if for no other reason but to get your recommended dose of whining and Schadenfreude!

Me too! Me too!
I've got exactly 143 days until I depart. Tickets booked, wife's PR visa sorted. Almost 7 years to the day that I arrived.

I work in a really small middle school, in a tiny town, even a lot of Korean people have never heard of, in the middle of nowhere.
And just found out this morning, one of my students applied for a scholarship to go study in the US or Canada, over winter vacation, and got accepted. :D

I'm here in Gochang-gun. I'm camping with my girlfriend and her kid.

This is great.

I love the booze nightlife in Seoul, I love the loud, the brash, but I often wonder if I actually do. And I don't think I really value that though. It's fun. But I don't value it.

I'm finally in a place where I don't want to go out and run around like a madman. I want to relax a bit, do some cooking and some exploring and just enjoy some time with the people I love, gf and little young Dain included.

This is what this thread is for. For telling everyone about something good that has happened. Well, folks, it has happened.

Life is good, I have a good little family going, and I hope everyone has a great Chuseok.  :-*

   This Chuseok was fantastic! Classes cancelled on Wednesday, and then a four day weekend to celebrate my b-day in. Woot!
   Had a big dinner with a bunch of the local NETs, then set off for a 3 day road trip up the East coast.
   Stopped by a half dozen tiny beaches, trespassed on a nuclear reactor construction site, ate some tasty seafood, stayed at a random pension, flew some kites, got a sunburn, and thoroughly inundated our car with sand.  :azn:
   I enjoy the summertime, but early autumn weather is hard to beat!
