As of yesterday, we’ve been living in Korea for 7 years. We now live in Seoul, but we first lived in Bucheon, so we decided to spend the day walking through Bucheon and reliving some of our favourite memories, and also remembering where we came from to where we are now.
It was a very emotional day for us. Things have changed so much. This little blog has become something a lot bigger than we had ever dreamed of, and so we wanted to remember what it was like before Eatyourkimchi became our careers. We remembered the restaurants we ate in. We walked through the locations of some of our silly skits. We stepped around the places Spudgy took epic shits. And we whirled through the entire day with stupid smiles on our faces.
When we first came to Korea we were teachers, and we made a lot of friends who were in our teaching circle. But all of them have since left Korea, back to the US, back to Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, England, Wales, Australia. We sometimes feel like vampires, in a small way; Vampires live forever as they watch their friends and family die. Living in Korea for a long time makes you watch your friends leave your lives, potentially forever. We walked around and remembered where we met Steve, hung out with Jessica, drank with Jessie, ate with Matt. We felt the passing of time a lot stronger than usual. In Seoul we’re part of the bali bali lifestyle, and rip through every day doing tons of things, but it took us going back to Bucheon and speaking with ghosts of friends that we felt just how fast time has left us.
We made a small gallery of the places we often visited. The descriptions will tell you small stories about them as well.
Otherwise, thank you all for being with us on this incredibly bizarre life we live. A lot of you are very new to the channel, but we also know that there are some of you who have been with us for a long time. Thank you all, to viewers old and new. We hope we can keep you happy with our videos, and that you’ll keep watching us on whatever new journeys we go on. I don’t know where we’ll be seven years from now. I don’t know where we’ll be one year from now. Everything changes so quickly, and in ways that we never predicted.
One thing we will say, though, is that we really want to get back to more smaller vlogs like what we used to do. We’ve been on an editing kick lately, and really enjoy doing smaller videos like this. I’d like to try to get more up on our bonus channel. Hopefully you won’t mind if we keep spamming the site with videos. There are some videos that didn’t fit into this video, for either copyright issues or just for silliness’ sake, so we have them available on our app for iOS and Android. Check em out for some more lols :D
Thanks everyone. You’re all so Nasty! And very special to us. I’m all emotional and thinking about the meaning of life now. I’m gonna go drink a glass of wine and clean the house and try to get back to being normal. Normal, but still thankful :D
