Wordless Learning?

Well, I had an idea for a tutoring service in my random search around for ways to get a small income.

Wordless Learning

I like the idea a lot, but I realized there’s a lot more to this that I’m not really prepared for quite yet.  I would like to develop a method to learning based on my own experiences, but I’m pretty sure I need more time.

That said, I plan to still go at it as a kind of hobby.  Between learning French and figuring out what I’ll be doing for the next year, I should have enough downtime right?

For the other things in my life, things are going fairly well.  The small town I’m living in here in France is pretty cool.  I feel like I’m walking through the pages of a Harry Potter novel.

I’m currently working on learning French, and once I’m competent in the language other things will be much easier to deal with.  I plan doing my Master’s here (not quite sure EXACTLY where, but that’s in the plans to come).

The biggest things though, is things go on.  I got stuck in Korea for the past two years and am feeling like I’m going forward again.  It was sad to say goodbye to friends from school and family, but it’s nice to be with Susan and exploring somewhere new.  I look forward to the chance to grow and hope to meet everyone again as a better person.

To finish, I plan to be updating here more, maybe even practicing in other languages.  I think it’s a nice way to practice.

Au revoir!

The Beginning of Tomorrow

Well, there's no use in saying that I haven't used this site in awhile, because it's served a purpose, it's been a place to hold precious memories of a time that I wished to keep pristine.

However, I've realized something just today that I think is rather important. Before that, a little bit of an update is in order.

I'll be graduating this semester. The classes are all but done and I'm not staying around to wait for the official cerimonies to commence. Since January I've been doing nothing but work and school work. Going nowhere besides my work site and home. This mundane existence can become very... comfortable. I didn't really realize that until today, when I was leaving for Tampa for a week. I've had to leave many places throughout the times, but all of the sudden, the fact that I'm about to be leaving for awhile hit me.

I am leaving and going on a journey again!

I leave for France on the 18th where I'll be reunited with Susan for the first time since last Summer in China. The fear of leaving was unexpected and I hadn't felt it for quite some time. Then, with a rush of nostalgia, I remembered Korea. Then, I realized that I'll be living in a new place again.

I've been holding onto that past for about two years now; refusing to let go. I do not think I'm alone in this kind of behavior either. However, I think that those past memories need to be changed into motivation rather than depression. The past isn't coming back, and thinking so will only leave you depressed living a life you never wanted. I'll be writing more now that I'm not afriad to let the past go into the archieves.

This is all I have to say right now though.
