Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to my friends, family, and readers both near and far! Lunar new year is only a couple of weeks away, but here in the United States we're celebrating with the solar calendar.

2011 was a great year full of challenges, surprises, new friends, big moves, new jobs/internships, and more. It had its fair share of ups and downs. I learned lessons in patience and gratitude. As I look back and learn from the past, I'm ready to jump into the new year full force!

There is so much more to come in 2012. Many of my friends faced new challenges and endured many hardships. We only look forward to growing in 2012 and living a more full life.  I do not yet know entirely what the next year holds, though I know it's going to be pretty epic.  Hopefully it includes a few travels and maybe even a few more exciting blog posts.

I am happy to announce that I'm on for another year of blogging with The Korea Blog. After the first few busy weeks of the month, I hope to devote more time to updating this blog. I moved to San Diego for volunteer/internship work and in the meantime will be looking for more opportunities to explore the Korean communities and learn Korean while down there.

Since the inception of this blog less than three years ago, I went from South Korea to a small shigol town in central California (where I'm currently spending the holiday with my family) to San Diego, a large diverse city. There may be more moves in the future. However, along the way I'll be sure to take my love for Korea and explore the local culture. Thank you for following me on this journey.

Happy new year to all of you! May you be blessed and filled with joy as you welcome 2012.
