A Summer Reading List (and Other Summer To-Dos)

I’m in search of a job in Seoul (I quit my current one and announced the update in this post) and taking it at quite a leisurely pace. To be this easygoing about it is really out of character for me, but I’ve been in school or on a school schedule since I was four with no gap years or breaks, and on a nonstop hustle since about 2011, so I’m spending more of my time soul (ha) searching than job searching. It helps that I’m not concerned about finding a job, just about finding one that I enjoy, am challenged by, and find fulfilling.

In the interim, I plan to do all the things I’d like to do but never seem to have the time to be truly present for: practice yoga, work on photography, study Korean and learn Korean recipes, develop my vocabulary, and read.

As the “English teacher,” I’m always asked for book lists and recommendations. But I don’t remember the last time I read a book that wasn’t for a young adult audience, for curriculum/planning purposes, or for grad school. I’ve been compiling a book list on my phone’s Notes app and plan to check off every title this summer.
