Lies, damned lies and statistics

Since leaving Korea:

Number of days: 44
Number of countries: 4
(Vietnam, Scotland, USA and (very briefly) Canada)
Number of modes of transport: 9
(taxi, bus, plane, train, boat, bike, bus, subway, car)
Number of flights: 7
Number of flights almost missed: 3
(Of which, 1 was very much our fault...)
Number of places slept overnight (not including transport): 17
Of which, 3 were hotels/hostels
Number of lactase tablets consumed: 25 and counting
Amount of delicious non-Korean food eaten: about an extra 5 pounds worth
Number of times I've marveled at how every coffee shop has soy milk: 100s
Amount of time since it became clear that I'm now 'unemployed' rather than 'on vacation': 2 weeks
Frequency of checking for emails from recruiters: 10 times a day
Level of excitedness about finally seeing the parents tomorrow: very high
Level of sadness about leaving PA: a little too high to think about

It's been too good a vacation/unemployment to sit down and write anything, but that just means I have a lot of stories to remember and scribble down before the grog chases them all away.

  1. Dude, totally feeling you on the on vacation==>unemployed transition. Ugh, gross. While I was up playing video games the other night, it suddenly made me shudder to realize that I was an unemployed 24-year-old, playing video games all night on my parents' computer. GROSS.

    On a lighter note, it'll happen lady. We'll get them jobs.
