Before people ask, no. There is no news from Korea. Though according to Footprints ‘no news is good news’.
Well, this is what they say. The documents I sent off have been checked initially, then sent off to EPIK who apparantly go through them with a fine-toothed comb.
THEN they get taken to the educational board of the province that you’re likely to be in.
EPIK has recently been in the Korean Herald as they are experiencing massive shortages of positions…odds feel slightly stacked against me.
In the mean time, I have made some early resolutions.
Keep myself in check with my happiness. By being depressive and melancholic, I become even less fun to be around than usual. This is normally caused by the fact that I have no focus, if you consider this time last year that I was doing my work and aiming for a degree, the focus has shifted ever so slightly now in the direction of boredom. I intend to combat this by being as proactive as possible, without burning myself out.
Become an accomplished photographer. Having splased out on a top-end digital camera, I should learn to get the very best out of it.
Become athletic again, regain my competetive edge. I’ve spent the last four years being a workaday runner, rugby player and martial-artist. This is mainly because I dont have a focus, I am never going to play for England, never going to the Olympics and its about time I learned that these details are not important. What is really crucial is to be the best that I can be, whatever that is and at whatever level.
Stop looking for it: fairly self-explanatory. I want love, like anyone else. I just think I’ve had a tendency to dive in with people who werent right for me, or situations that werent good for me.
I have a strong sense of self, an ability to communicate with people and I love socialising. Why make it anymore complicated than that?
Accept that my life is great. Its a travesty to do anything else.
