When That Wind Blows
Stagnant. That's a word that makes me shudder. It's something I don't want to be. Sitting in one place, doing the same thing, over and over and over and over.
Wanderlust. That's a word that makes me all dreamy. There truly is a travel bug and it bit me hard. Now I want to roam from place to place, soaking up the views, the people, the food, the traditions.
College is over and so ends my life as a student. That which has been my identity for 22 years. I can start anew. And yet I have to go back to where it all started. My hometown, so that I can save money to go to Australia and New Zealand. It's worth it. I just hope I don't lose my soul in the process. Here's the big question. Come September I need to decide if I want to apply to teach English in Japan or South Korea. It's frightening, but it's new. The fear of a new place is easier than the fear of an old one.
Asia. I never thought I'd go there.
Now it's my only option.
