I am teaching for a year in Daegu, South Korea. I didn’t want to live in regret, so I left the job that was taking me nowhere and decided to go do something I love – working with children and travel the world.
My best friend Jodi decided this life was for her as well so we headed to South Korea. I love experiencing new food, people and culture. But most of all, I love documenting it to show my friends and family back home.
True Joy of Life
This is the true joy of life.
The being used for a purpose
Recognized by yourself as a mighty one.
The being a force of nature
Instead of a feverish, selfish
Little clod of ailments and grievances
Complaining that the world will not
Devote itself to making you happy.
I am of the opinion that my life
Belongs to the whole community
And as long as I live,
It is my privilege to do for it
Whatever I can.
I want to be thoroughly
Used up when I die,
For the harder I work the more I live.
I rejoice in life for its own sake.
Life is no brief candle to me.
It is a sort of splendid torch
Which I’ve got hold of
For the moment
And I want to make it burn
As brightly as possible before
Handling it on to future generations.
-George Bernard Shaw
