Mexico is even closer. I'm still jealous.
Luckily, it isn't a sign of unhappiness with what I'm doing. I'm in the midst of one of my favourite parts of my job. Welcoming new students to a new school and a new country makes me happy because I'm having a positive effect. Sure I recognize that, under certain circumstances, my life is inconsequential. The planet likely couldn't give a donkey's left nut that I'm doing my thing on its surface but I know that I mean something to the people around me. No big head here. I don't have to turn sideways to get through doorways but I know that I am a part of the lives of those I come into contact with. We all are. That can be a wholly fulfilling acknowledgement sometimes.
Maybe this is shedding a little light on the dark parts of my being... Maybe it's just some candles. Hmmm.
