Is this really happening?

So... yesterday it all became REAL! I got my address in Anyang , South Korea. Omg...it's really happening. Each day my future unfolds and I get a bit more excited about my life. It's a bittersweet moment to realize that one of my dreams is coming true, however in the same breath I'm leaving a life an old life behind...in the hopes of becoming something new. I'm a little freaked out, I'm not gonna lie. It's overwhelming and exciting at the same time.
A side note: F.Y.I this apartment will be my first! A place of my very own! I know you think wow, you're how old and never lived alone? But now I feel I'm ready! Ready to stand on my own two feet, independent, clear headed and determined to live my life.
Ok I got a little deep there for a minute people, let me swim back to the shallow end as not to scare the rest of you.On a lighter note, I joined a Facebook group called Brothas and Sistas in South Korea.( For those of my friends who say I'm not really black, I qualify as a sista dont I?)...it's kind of exciting finding other people of color in South Korea. Im excited to immerse myself in Korean culture but it will also be nice to see a familiar face every now and then.Oh let's digress for a minute to my YouTube debacle. So... Im attempting to get my video diary up and running on Youtube I filmed this super cute video on my phone, but me being a videography neophite, messed up the audio and then inserted a wrong code somewhere and my video ended up looking like a bad PSA for drunken youtube users. Absolutely terrible! That is one I won't be posting.
I have a few more weeks to get the hang of the whole video blog editing thing.
Anyways I'm looking forawrd to some hardcore chillage with friends and family. A year may seem like a really long time, but it's only a blink of any eye in the scheme of one's lifetime.

*Confucius say: life is full of unexpected surprises...be sure to air freshener near by
