Summer in Rantoul

It's been a great couple of days. I got to spend a lot of time with family and friends. I can't seem to do that enough considering I'll be gone for an entire year. I must admit, this summer has been a bit boring so far and I'm anxious to start my travels. But I absolutely love spending time with the people I adore, so that more than makes up for the lack of activity I've had the past few weeks. Things will start to get a bit busier soon. I start babysitting my niece and nephew next week and I have several weekends planned with family and friends. So hopefully I won't be as bored.

A lot of people have asked me if I'm still planning on going to South Korea with what has been going on as of late and the increased tension on the peninsula. Yes, I still plan on going. I have talked to a few of my friends who are currently in S. Korea, and they don't seem to be too worried about the situation. They see how other Koreans go about their day and they don't pay much mind to the threats from their neighbor to the North. Apparently this has been going on since the end of the Korean war, and the two countries are still technically at war. I read the news every day checking for updates and I will stay safe. But as of now, my destination and future home will be South Korea!
