Coffee, Massage, and chicken wrap...

Today I decided to venture outside of the mall box that has been my social life for the past 8 months. I ventured into this place called Korea Town....which is basically our own little version of "Little Korea." It came about because last weekend we ventured out and I realized that there were great places around without having to go to the mall. Now I still have to take the school shuttle, but at least this way I don't have to fight for a seat at Starbucks. I don't have to make my way through crowds of people just to get groceries. I can simply just grab an hour massage, a cup of coffee...and be me without anyone else around. Even my current view is amazingly beautiful. 

So, I guess the moral of this story is, when you find yourself in a rut. When you feel like you just want to be something to make yourself happy. For me massages, writing and coffee make me happy. Especially when I am so far away from home and people that I love. 

Scenery makes me happy. Just observing the world around me. I need to do more of that for the next month. I need to pray more and let my heart feel love. 

I haven't been able to do that because is have been wrapped up in my own depression....but today I start fresh. 

And enjoy the view!

And the coffee!

Career Changes?

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to teach. I'm good at it...I like doing it. But what if this restlessness I've been feeling is because I need to do something more? What if I need to look broader then the classroom. What if I need to expand into places beyond my reach?
