Helo welcom 2 my websight
This week was the last week of my project here in Korea.
As I’m typing this, I am sitting in the living room of my guesthouse in Seoul.
It was so hard to say goodbye to our children, our home, our city, and our fellow volunteers..everyone is going to be leaving in the next few days, and some time after that I will also have to leave this country behind. Even though it might still be a month away, it feels like I am already leaving. Sleeping in a room with seven strangers, having no place to store my things, not being able to see my kids..it feels like I’m really alone now and this is something I am very bad at. I’ve never traveled like this, and it feels extremely uncomfortable.
I’ve been helping a kid that came over to the guesthouse with his English homework, almost without even thinking about it. Maybe there is a little bit of a teacher within me.
Yesterday, we wrote letters to all of our students, and some of them also wrote to us. My favorite student was crying as she hugged me and she wrote me the cutest letter ;_; Another one of my students e-mailed me today to say that he wanted to see me but couldn’t because I had already left. It makes me feel like maybe we did do something useful for the last 3 months, and it makes me forget about all the bad things that happened.
Anyway, I’ll just post the pictures we took of our students here, and maybe later, when I have time, I will add some comments about them.
