I put all the gifts and notes from my students at my desk, as proof that someone loves me. I like to imagine that the other teachers are secretly jealous, but I know in reality they don’t notice the odd trinkets and origami figures that clutter my desk.

I have just gotten over (I hope) a bout of stomach flu. Thanks goes out to all sympathetic friends and family, near and far.

Intense home sickness comes and goes. I have thirteen weeks left in Korea. I frequently have dreams about flying home and celebrating with old loves… root beer, thin crust pizza, white gummy bears, Neapolitan milkshakes and some activities of the NC-17 variety.

I may be sad now, but I know I’m going to get out of all of this on top. Eventually. If anything, this is happening to teach me about perception and patience: two things I’ve never had much of a shine for. In the meanwhile, I’ll listen to Stevie Wonder and the Mills Brothers because that’s the kind of mood I’m in.


Hi, I'm Stacy. I'm from Portland, Oregon, USA, and am currently living in Busan, South Korea. Check me out on: Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, Lastfm, and Flickr.
