It's rather strange when you finally see what's going on around you--objectively, instead of narrow-mindedly, like many of us all do without thinking. We go through our days, making choices either consciously or subconsciously, and without further ado, everything chaotic becomes so clear to us. This is precisely what happened to me. I was living in a dream world, and that dream world had to end. I had to take responsibility for my actions, and make the most logical decisions I thought possible. This must be apart of growing up; this must be apart of what it finally means to be an adult~ when you make choices and you must live with those decisions. Whether good or bad, the outcome, hopefully, produces desired results; moreover, it's the actual progress that I've always believed, is the most important of all.
So I sit here at DaVinci, right at the North gate of KyungPook Nat'l University, killing time before I meet Brenda and her gang of Canadian friends again. I really feel like I've made progress here~ and after nearly 5 months of being here in Korea, you'd think I would have already. But I have to admit that I feel pretty good overall: recent happenings, I believe, have brought my boss and I closer together; my co-workers and I are getting along ALOT better, since recently letting our guards down and talking about work-related problems and general 'abrasive' feelings that made us feel uncomfortable in one-another's presence; and last, my trip to Seattle, I think, will give me just the right amount of down-time and family spending to feel good about myself, and essentially rejuvenate, recharge and re-oil the rig (ah! me!) to head full-charge and on-course... being a teacher, once again, in little Daegu :)
