"Today my subjects, you must call me Your Excellency."
"How about 'Your Grace'?"
"Erm... no. I prefer Your Excellency."
You know those people who get a little bit of power and it goes to their heads? Yeah, thats me.

Today marks a pause on my Korean adventures. To say my heart is full would be an understatement. While I've kept the joy of seeing old friends and visiting my favourite places, I have found it oddly hard. I feel like Korea was a devoted wife, whom taught me who I intrinsically am through her many trials and adventures. That makes China my new girlfriend. This chapter of my life shares Korea's emotional space in my soul. Sometimes they get along - like when I read the traditional characters, hanja, at temples. Other times there is conflict - I've said 谢谢 instead of 감사합니다 more than a few times this trip which is indicative the shift in my world. Korean is slowly turning from a second language in to a foreign one and Mandarin is happy to take her place.

Grateful to have the kind of friends who travel hours just for a quick catch up. A 'traditional' Itaewon Saturday with a twist. Discovered a new drag bar complete before jaunting back to old favourites and finishing off with 4 am mandu. I may never understand why I thought spicy kimchi flavour was a good idea.

The 치맥 파티 of the year. She can still pull in a crowd.
And an outfit change.
Grateful to have friends willing to put aside the social awkwardness of meeting groups of strangers so that I don't have to see them all separately. Also grateful for chicken and beer. So grateful.

Today's gratitude goes to my bro 우준. Thank you for putting me up in your beautiful home, for showing me Asan, which was just too close and small for me to have tried to discover and for this delicious lunch. When we met he was a student, when I left he was a graduate job hunter, then on my previous two visits he had zero work/life balance and now he's worked it all out and is ballin'. Proud doesn't even cut it.
You've probably cottoned on that this trip has made me all pensive and I can't help but reflect on an immense amount of change over recent years. Had someone told me where I'd be four years post-Korea, I wouldn't have found it unlikely. Had they forcast ten years ago all the places and things I'd achieve, I wouldn't have believed them because back then I didn't believe in me.
Yesterday I spoke with friends, one of whom was riddled with self-doubt. Another friend commented that over the course of our relationship, I have remained the same person but have grown to know my intrinsic worth. Do you know yours?
