vocabulary / boredom / my mom

Mood: a little depressed

Today was purely a vocabulary day. I did maybe 400 reviews and made less than 10 mistakes. Not bad! Over the last two hundred or so reviews I wrote down the Korean word and made zero (0) mistakes. It was kind of a lazy day.

A thought: Facebook tells me that I have a lot of high school and university friends getting married, getting knocked up, and settling down. While I fully intend on having kids and getting married, doing so at the age of 24 seems so-- boring. I mean, yeah, if marriage is in the cards I'd be up for it, but why not experience life before buying a house and having three kids before you're 30 years old? Sure, that's experiencing life, but there's so much of the world to see, so many things to do... oh well. Everyone's priorities are different.

Currently editing photos from Malaysia... sigh. Hopefully I'll finish before work tomorrow. Well, today.

My mom leaves in 2 days. I find this really depressing. I don't want to be so far from my family, but it's the best for all of us. I can't grow as a person without being on my own. Hopefully I'll see her again next year...

I was in Kazakhstan when my cousin (who's the same age as me) got married. As much as I sometimes envy her awesome job and relationship, I also don't regret for a minute going to KZ--in fact, most days I wish I'd stayed longer.

The awesome job and relationship will come with time. I suspect your education and your Peace Corps experience will give you far more opportunities than settling down young would.

I married late. Actually, my first relationship over 3 months wasn't until I was 26, and didn't get married until I was 38. I think getting married before 25 is for boring people on "the plan."

I'm currently in my first relationship and it's lasted over 6 months so far (!). Settling down at this point- well, I'm just not ready yet. While marriage may be in the cards I am at least 5 years away from being on "the plan." I have more education to get and traveling to do before I a willing to settle!
