What do you do when you’re tired of living in the United States? You go teach English in South Korea! Johnston County native Kate Watson moved to the country after graduating from Appalachian State, and scored tickets to both the Opening Ceremony and several other Olympic events as of recently. Watson said that she’s fallen in love with the culture and tranquility of life in South Korea, and said that she’s sometimes treated like a celebrity for being able to teach others English. As far as being concerned about tensions with North Korea, Watson said that she relies on outside sources for her news. Instead of reading the paper, she FaceTimes with her dad who’s back in the States to keep her up to date. Sounds like Trump and his shenanigans are the least of Watson’s worries. You do you, honey.
