1 week ago i was so excited to come to korea, 1 day ago i thought i had made a mistake in this decision. 14 hours later in addition to a 2 hour bus drive through the wilderness of seoul my anxious heart is at peace. i'm exactly where i want to be and there is absolutely no time or room for doubt. to choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation. -martel. probably the hardest thing about being out here is being away from everyone else, despite that, i know that if i weren't here, i'd be wishing i was. i've already had some pretty cool conversations with a dj, some brits, and a former uci alum. the coolest thing, i get to start all over, meet new amazing people, and add more stories to this already blessed life i've led. there are peeps from all over the place, from different walks of life, different ages, different experiences. i'm super excited to hear their perspectives and stories over the next week. my roommates: iesha is my age from philidelphia, college graduate and kindergarten teacher for a year, igana, a little younger than middle aged, from colorado, just finished her masters in education, is here to pay off her loans. hahaha, this orientation week is going to be like spop, we're staying in dorms! lucky for these people, i happen to know a thing or two about orientations and i'm freaking going to make everyone play whoosh! holla!
