Wide open spaces

I love my camera and I love Montana. Short post for now :)

Listening to an excessive amount of Rachel Yamagata has me thinking about happenstance and what it has done in my life. It is defined as follows-

Noun 1. Happenstance - an event that might have been arranged although it was really accidental.
-chance event, fortuity, accident, stroke - anything that happens suddenly or by chance without an apparent cause.

While my desire to see the world has always driven me to explore opportunities, I can hardly believe somedays how close I am to auctually doing it. It is easy to forget that in a few short weeks, I will be boarding a plane and not returning for a full year. I have always believed in accomplishing goals that I seriously set my mind on. While I have had many goals and ideas, few have flourished the way this Korea plan has. I feel the word "happenstance" fits my situation perfectly. Everything has fallen into place so perfectly, yet it has been completely random and a complete surprise most days.

My summer here has been an amazing blessing. While most days I'm stuck drudging through work, there are the few days I have had that make everything else worth it.

Currently listening to: Elephants...Teeth Sinking into Heart. Rachel Yamagata.

Kimchi in Montana

We went to a Korean restaurant in Bozeman and ordered an assortment of fabulous things. However, I didn't love the kimchi fried rice that Corinne ordered. That worried me! What if I hate kimchi?! I thought I liked it. So maybe I just didn't like that kimchi...Either way Bozeman has the best little Korean BBQ in Montana (I assume it is the only one). While we specifically went to Bozeman to eat at I-Ho's, the day turned into something way cooler and involved floating the river on what was a beautiful Montana summer day.
