I just haven’t had anything to say lately. Life in Korea has been business as usual, and I’m really itching for a change. Lately I’ve been going to Taekwondo in the morning instead of the evening, which gives me a lot more energy. I’ve also been working on my novel, but it’s sticking at the end, and I’m frustrated with it, and with my plans for the future–I’m having a hard time putting things in perspective.
I just desperately want to be the one studying, not the one teaching–at least right now. I whined and moaned a lot about university and the ivory tower and the lack of “real, on the ground” influence one has in university–but I think that’s always a choice. And these days I just feel like I’m getting dumber (and meaner) by the minute.
But I am happy to not have to go to TKD at 9:30 pm.
