We were let out of our opening ceremony at 4:20 yesterday. My co-worker for the program and I decided to have a beer on a bench at our local “culture street.” That turned into four beers, and maybe a fifth at McDonalds, then BBQ for him, soup for me.
The weather yesterday was just so nice we couldn’t not be outside. We both ran into current and former students, as happens here, and, because we were both dressed up, everyone thought we were on a date. My friend said that other men were looking at him like “so you get dressed up and your idea of a date is convenience store beer on a bench…?”
We had a great time but now I’m feeling not so wonderful. Got together with a friend after for some wine as she’s having boyfriend problems. Then skyped with DG for an hour or so.
What a weird night!
Moment of silence for the Sewol Feerry at my opening ceremony for work lasted maybe 4 seconds….

Last class was cancelled.
Have a business meeting tonight, then I’m finished for nearly two weeks.
Still have to come to work but these next two weeks are going to be spent figuring out my life. This includes: vacations, visas, moving, our next step, graduate classes, CELTA courses, and so much more.

Wow. I have a hard time with being carried. But when I do ask to be carried, I REALLY need it. And I won’t apologize for needing it…
It’s always okay to not be strong. The world will tell you that strength and self-reliance are of value, and that softness and the need to withdraw and be taken care of are not.
The world is wrong.
working on this..
Last night was the first time I didn’t apologize for crying and needing someone to be there.
