There’s a scene in 1995’s Forrest Gump when Forrest, who had been running across America several times, suddenly stops and turns to a group of people that had joined him and says, “I’m tired. I want to go home now.”

I am feeling a little bit like Forrest these days. I am starting to feel tired with being here in Korea. I think it is almost that time—the time I knew which would come one day—when it would be time to pull up stakes and move on.

It has just stopped being fun. I just don’t see things getting any better for me here in the near future, and maybe it is time to get out of here for awhile and see what the next chapter in my life is like.
