9 years and counting…
It’s already been 9 years?
still feels like yesterday when I first stepped into this then-foreign land
people these days talk to me about how so much has changed since high school
but for me, I’m trying to think back 9 years and it’s kinda crazy
lately all of these memories from Korea have been floating around in my brain
and i really miss it
I think of all the promises I made to my friends about how I’ll come back some day and I never did
I wonder if they ever think nostalgically like I am doing right now…
I think about what my life would be like if I were still in Korea.
would I have ever met Jesus? who knows? what I do know is that I would probably in the military right now, like some of my friends are in Korea…
sometimes I sit and wonder what the heck my parents were thinking when they decided to come here. the sacrifice they made, the decisions they made to take their chances in a foreign country so that I could have a chance at a better life? that’s why I have so much respect for my parents
I’m still trying to remember what was going through my head when I was coming to America
If I had any idea where I would be now
then it really makes me wonder if I have any idea where I’ll be 9 years from now
one thing I’ve noticed was that life was a lot simpler 10 years ago
but now things have changed, people have gone in and out of your life already, there’s always people around you, and everything’s a lot more complicated
or maybe we just make it that way
i feel like we all try to grow up too fast
i think trying to grow up too fast makes life much more complicated than it should be
anyone out there feel me?
