Notebooks

I’ve been going through my old computer files and notebooks lately hoping to find some encouragement. It’s always interesting too look back, be it in a diary, an old collection of photographs, or even old posts on a blog. Pages and photographs fortunately have a stronger sense of permanency than timelines or twitter feeds, and even if you can find everything online, the nostalgia is physical when leafing through the old pages written in slightly different handwriting and in faded pencil or ink.

Aside from my newest Moleskine and a collection of my newest fascination as a writing medium, yellow A4 lined paper, I believe it’s called legal pad, I have all kinds of paper and notebooks scattered around the bookshelves and packed in boxes around the home. All of these have served some function in my scattered and impotent career as a Nobel laureate.

The kids’ diary entries are so poetic to me sometimes. This one made me tear up a bit.

Today title: Funeral

Today was a my grandmother’s (My mom’s mom) funeral. I cried, and my cousin (my aunt’s daughter cried too. Today when we were sleeping, I wished I could have fallen asleep in a hurry. But, I could not sleep.

Today title: Burned

Today we burned my grandma’s body. My mom and aunts cried. After that, we went to Yeong-cheon. And we buried grandma’s body next to my grandpa’s body. Yesterday and today were very sad days.

The kids’ diary entries really entertain me sometimes, because they’re either totally off the wall, or I completely connect with them. This entry is one I could have written as a small child.

Title: Wedding

Today was my aunt’s wedding. I saw my aunt. She was very beautiful. I want to wear a wedding dress. Because it is very beautiful. I saw my uncle too. My uncle was very handsome. And my uncle was very tall. Today was a beautiful day.

I love when the kids write directly to me when they finish their weekly diary entries. It always gets them a sticker and/or chocopie.

Yes, I am a bit narcissistic. Yet, what teacher isn’t? We spend all day with a dozen eyes on us, making us the center of attention. Also, what blogger isn’t narcissistic? Obviously I feel some sort of need to share my gospel with others. 

Dear Stacy Teacher,

Hello, I’m Tracy. You are my teacher. The reason why I am writing you a letter is that I want to get closer to you. Your first impression was very good and I left comfortable around you. Please teach me about English. Take care, Teacher. From Tracy
