There is a moment when you go to the large temple in Chaing Mai and turn left. You cross the white marble floors and over to the balcony that looks like something out of a Disney movie that you turn around and you see a little branch. On that branch will be little orange berries perfectly contrasted against the bright blue sky and you think to yourself, "God went overboard on this place".
My Thailand Trip so far:
Gnawed on by dogs
Attacked by ants
Helped mix cement
Talked about ESL
Helped with Homework
Bought a Ton of Stuff at the Market
How are you today?
I am feeling like I just walked into zanzibar's garden and it all just does that naturally. Thailand is AWESOME
What do you want to be when you grow up?

I've asked this question of myself and other people a lot over... well my whole life. As I sit here now, savoring my last days in Korea, it occurs to me that this is a rather silly question. I imagine there are some people who will ask me, "Did you always want to be an EFL teacher?" and I would have to say, "well... no". Go back a little ways in my resume and someone might ask, "Did you always want to draw people's dogs?" and I'd have to say, "Well... of course not, no." Then you dig a little deeper and you say, "Did you always want to make professional webpages" and I'll say double no to that one.
Maybe I will become a writer and then I can say, "Yeah, ever since I was a little girl", but I imagine that there are a whole lot of careers I'm going to fall in and out of besides that... and that suits me just fine.

So, I have these noisy neighbors and, I'm going to start out by saying that they've gotten a lot better. When I first moved in, they used to scream at each other and then have loud moaning sex every single night. And through... some passive aggressive knocking lightly on the ceiling on my part (no, not exactly proud of it either), they got the picture. The thing is that I can still hear them. I just hear these subtle little grunting now and these subtle tiffs raging overhead and... right about now I just want to get over it.
I mean, is there some kind of self-hypnotism that will allow me to stop hearing them? Or maybe I can give myself a cookie every time I hear them so I start feeling a sugar rush every time I hear it? It's just awful, because it's not like my neighbors aren't trying (you should have heard the week where they tried nailing stuff into the floor. That was a looong week.
Oh well, I only have two weeks left. Maybe I can run every appliance in my room until its time for me to go.
I feel foggy today
Saturday. 5.21.11 12:18 am
The fog clouded the sky in a deep white in the way that it usually clouded the hills and the streets in my native western American. I was set up in it in my eighteenth floor apartment looking down into the beautiful and misty fog. I have always liked fog and foggy pictures. I was just talking to a friend of mine about how the fog rolling in and out of the bay was one of the most beautiful things that he had ever experience. When I was in college, I had a picture on my wall of a line of trees that petered out into fog.
To me it was a symbol of how I needed to be comfortable with the unknown and as the years great on and the poster never left my wall, I did just that: become more comfortable with the unknown. Now, the fog has lifted over my little Korean city, that place which has become so familiar to me in the recent months and I must let it go. The box of things Iím leaving behind looks like Christmas and I am waiting, waiting quietly for the day that I continue on into a new adventure. Till then.

My friends always tell me that I'm too much of a planner. Well, I'm leaving Korea in two weeks and I am growing to the conclusion that I need to drop any plans. I'm going to still work on my novel, when I get back, I'm going to talk to that friend of my moms, maybe I'll make flight arrangements for Bolivia, but I want to spend most of my time trying to figure out how to enjoy the precious seconds I am living through right now. Which means, although I do have to pack, I'm going to listen to awesome music, watch movies and listen to books on tape. It also means that when I do my laundry I'm going to permit myself to hum and that when I teach classes I will always find time to teach them the things I actually find interesting, like the relationships between houses and apartments and how talking like a computer relates to math.
