Labor Day weekend this year is quite different from my last year’s SD trip: calm and quiet. yesterday was the fall fest, and I honestly just went for the free food and company. I met up with my department colleagues and had a blast. all of us weren’t feeling the music so we bounced early to go drink. pitcher deals ftw. then the bar turned real ghetto and turnt up. made me want to go clubbing… lol but I decided to come back home early(?) for church the next morning.
today’s mass was good. I ended up meeting an entirely different group of people than last week. I realized this last time, but this young adult ministry has a variety of people. people are from different states and countries (not just Korea). a lot of them are older in age (90’s are the youngest). many are here to work (press, law, government, pharm, etc.) or pursue their graduate (mostly doctoral) studies. it feels amazing to be able to meet other Korean Catholics with such different backgrounds. oh and I got to eat Korean food today for the first time in DC.
tomorrow is Labor Day. I don’t have class, but I have some work to finish. and of course, endless reading!
p.s. I can see planes landing at DCA from my apartment. there’s an arrival roughly every 2 minutes. I wonder from where they’re all coming and to where they’re headed.
p.p.s. I went grocery shopping in preparation for the rainy days ahead. now the clouds are rolling in. time to open that bottle of beer and just watch/hear the rainfall.
I had my last class of the week today. this semester, I’m taking epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental & occupational health, and global health frameworks. so far so good, though I wonder how I’ll fare once the internship begins! tomorrow will be a ‘do some work at a local cafe’ kind of day. I need to get started on my country profile..
have a good night.
He always has a way. Thank you for answering my prayer!
today I received my third weekly special in the mail. “For better or worse I still will choose you first.” always.
it’s been 2 weeks since my move to DC. only 2 weeks..! it sure feels like ages (perhaps due to still not having a bed). I sent my signed internship agreement over to HRSA today. done deal. tomorrow is finally SPH’s orientation, and classes begin on Monday. I’m so ready. I need to up my pace and do. let it begin!
