I don’t know if a lot of people would read this but it is a really dark time in Korea.
About three days ago, the cruise ship Sewol, with about 350 high school students who were on their way to a field trip, sank.
The ship’s maximum boarding limit was 900 people. Only 476 people were on that…
There’s a quote from Garcia Márquez about how life is what one remembers, which is just really sad because he had Alzheimer’s. I guess it’s great that he was able to write everything down and preserve his thoughts throughout his life. Words are a beautiful thing to leave behind in this world.
When I was a kid I used to say I’d work at the McDonald’s as a clown (OF ALL THINGS) so I could live with my mom and dad, the best people, forever. I still kind of feel that way. Usually I think in terms of no limits to what I can do/where I can go, because that’s how my parents encourage me, but really I don’t think I could stand living so far away for too long. I don’t think you have to give up your dreams to stay close to home in some sense…(especially since I live near DC so maybe I’m privileged in saying this) but for me my dreams always also included laughing with my family.
