It’s the end of so many things… I just finished the seventh installment of Harry Potter (about two weeks too late to be cool.) I didn’t think I’d get sentimental like other fans but it was a nice ending and I’ll be sad to see the series go. I could use my own Room of Requirement today. : )
School started yesterday, thus ending summer. With exception to the 7 o’clock Karoake hour broadcasted across the entire hotel, I hated to leave the peacefulness of the beach. It was a spur-of-the-moment all-girls trip and I enjoyed spending time with my aunt before she goes back to Korea this weekend. She’s been practicing writing “Inchon” (the name of the city/airport) over and over and I know she is scared to travel alone since she doesn’t speak English. It seems like a part of me will be disappearing when she leaves (yes Harry Potter analogies seem to always pop up in conversation and writing now); I don’t know when I will see her again since travelling to Korea is so much more difficult now.
I think I’ve kind of “given up” on things in a way, even if it’s just in an academic sense. I decided to not try and graduate a year early afterall and drop my course load from 22 hours to 13. I know reading about how many credits I’m taking isn’t exactly enthralling but I’m just not sure what to do now. Sucking it up is really the only option, I don’t know why I keep dwelling on living here for another year. I still want to pursue the same dreams.
Onto happier thoughts : )
