This is not a post about my upcoming trip to South Korea. That will be my next post. This one is about my summer so far, and I thought it would be best in a separate post because it’s been a bit more…dramatic at some points and can’t exactly be boiled down to a single bullet point.
“-itis” is a medical term used to mean the “inflammation (or swelling) of” something. Tonsillitis is inflammation of the tonsils. Sinusitis is inflammation of the sinuses. You get the idea.
“Senioritis” is a word from American students’ jargon used to describe stressed students who are in their senior year of high school or senior year of college.
During these past three months (especially the past four weeks), I cared little, I acted little, and, worst of all, I prayed little. The Brave, Little Ninja was not brave—just little. And I’m sorry, and I’m trying to learn from it.
So the Brave, Little Ninja has returned to college in the US. For my senior year, I decided to change things up a bit. I’m in a single room, and, oh yeah, I’m dropping my minor and get a TESOL certification instead—something I decided to do two weeks before the semester started. So that’s a thing.
