There is a fine line between being stuck in a rut and becoming comfortable and content with a routine. I'm definitely in the latter. The honeymoon phase of Korea is over, but there is still excitement that lurks around every corner. I still venture out through the subways, connecting cities, and meandoring trails along the river. But my day to day life has become the foundation of my happiness. I like waking up every morning with a purpose... I like the fact I'm doing what I love... teaching. I get to walk to work, I don't have to drive. I like going down stairs at lunch and eating with my fellow teachers. I usually just sit back, eat and listen to them talk about their day. I'll add to the conversation once in awhile but I like listening... I like getting off work at night, going home, throwing on my gym clothes and walking with my friend to the gym. When does a routine become a rut? Well I'll let you know. But for now, I'm happy and content and living in the moment.
