Day 155

Tuesday | July 31st, 2012


One more day to go of going through the motions of waiting and holding my hands over my ears when Meow wants to talk about a someday house that is only a day’s reach. One more day of sitting stuff. One more day of this holding.

We braved a sky of scattered and sometimes desolate cotton-puffs to perform one last task to be ready for tomorrow. Going downtown, we walked in the low shadows of houses, buildings, shrubs, and poles to not burn. I wished I had a sun umbrella like so many Korean women do. I contemplated hijacking one. Mostly I just sucked it up (like I always tell the dogs to do when the world isn’t perfect).

I stopped by my bank looking for my TOEIC money (hero image). 915 won is about a nickel. Maybe the money will appear later. I was going to pick up more boxes of lens (to complete my princess kit: Gatsby wax and Acuvue 1-Days), then decided to put all not house related tasked off until later. Meow pushed us in a shop though and I have 30 more days of sight in my bag.

In return, I pushed us into Tous le Jours for cream mocha bread. We got decadent bakery snacks and cold drinks while there and sat for awhile cooling off before the walk home. I saw a building I’d shot before and the light was better this time, but when I pulled out my phone, I had a call. It was a rambler. I sat down to let the rambler go and Meow left me in the street. Too hot for her to wait I guess. I got my shot and found a piano too! (above)

The Fourth Wall

I’m here and alive. Ten days behind the reality of my written life, yet here and alive. TOEIC is the predominant motif of life from the end of the semester until … today. This is the end, after

This Old Hanok

When we had the bathroom done, we wanted to design our own window for the part of the wall which straddles the storage space along the side of the house. This way we could have clean airflow through
