As of late, life has been of the variety in which one does not know if one is coming or going. While there are presently some rather large question marks in front of me and the juggling act is reaching epic proportions, I am fairly certain of a few things.
It is difficult to wince in the face of life’s obstacles when in one week
a Wii, albeit in Korean, is installed at the office and you promptly kick co-worker ass at bowling
a land camera arrives from Berlin loaded with film
there’s plenty of bean salad and cherry tomatoes to go around
your dad agrees to do a summer-long, virtual long-distance study group with you and your podcast buddies
a friend returns from France with a coloring book and a box made of chocolate filled with truffles and dried fruit
your friends secretly scheme to present you with a new guitar named Karen
and a party bus drives you and a horde of
diplomats new BFFs all over Seoul in the rain with champagne and Toto’s Africa on repeat.
True, you may end up in bed with the flu for a week after that, but it’s hard to complain about it.
