Random Thoughts

You know, I'm thinking another post would be good today. I just have the feeling to write these days. I always have something on my mind. Hmm....what to talk about today? Ah, how about dreams or something to that effect?

Growing up, I had many dreams. The earliest I can remember was that I wanted to be in the military. I have no idea why, but I just did. So, many people when they talk about their dreams, it usually includes things such as what they wanted to be when they grew up. It's like everything wrapped in one. It's an explosion of 'what could be'.

I think it's really good for kids to dream about their future. If they don't, it takes away a critical aspect of their life. The ability to be creative. It helps to shape who that person is going to be as they get older along with the other traits they have.

Another dream I had was to be adventurous. I almost thought I would never get that experience, but I'm here now. I'm still dreaming here. I've already decided that I want to start learning a martial art, then as I was watching a radio broadcast, I was like 'o, you know...I don't think I would be too bad as a DJ on a radio show. I have a pretty decent character.' What do you guys think? Would I be a good DJ? Well, sound off in the comments box with any thoughts or even suggestions.

Dream big, but don't forget who you are and were. If you forget, you lose the whole reason you are where you are at now. It loses it's meaning. On this short note, I will go. Woo!

O wait! I finally sang my first full Korean song in a Singing Room a few days ago. I was so excited because I didn't do so bad! Go me, right?!?

You can listen to the original song here at this link. :) It's really a good song! Just please watch the video! It's a great song, and you don't even have to understand it to feel that.

Now. Tomorrow. Forever.

Hey guys! So, it's been a long while, and I apologize for that dearly. Most of it was because I was truly busy, the other part was just because I was being lazy. Ah, wow. It feels like time has flown by here. I'm already halfway through my time in South Korea, and I'm so sad. I love this place. I might not fully understand how to get to places or where to go, but I do know that this place holds a lot for me to learn. One day, I know I will come back to here whether it is for vacation or to finally live here, that is the question. I've decided I'm going to try to make changes when I get back to the States to help me better prepare myself. Being here has definitely helped me to mature better. Don't worry! I'm still the silly goofball everybody knows, but I have stories to tell that I can pass on. I can teach people that life isn't just what you see, but what you seek. You have to reach for it, go for it, to be able to become a better person.
 Just this weekend, I went with many of my classmates and other exchange students to the border of North and South Korea. It was really awesome to see the DMZ and the tunnel there. We even got to go to the observatory.

That afternoon when everybody finished, some of the exchange students were staying in that area to go rafting the next day. After a quick, split-second decision, I decided to stay with them. I met other people at the place we were staying at. They were very nice! The owner of that pension was so hospitable. It was a great experience!

I give many thanks to my professor and classmates because it's an experience I would never have gotten otherwise. It was beautiful in that area.

Parting picture is of me and my friend, Song. She's quite the character, but the area is where we stopped at to visit the river. That river happened to be the area me and my 4 friends were going to go rafting down.

Much love and peace~
