Endings...

So, today ends the Marc EFL Chapter in the book that is my life. Who
knows, there may be EFL in future chapters, but I haven't read that
far.
It was a strange good-bye at the school. I never really felt part of
the school, because I couldn't really communicate with most of the
students and teachers. That thought made me sad, because the
experience would have been much different had I been able to
communicate better. I think it's this empty kind of feeling that has
me studying Arabic right now, even though I know I probably won't need
or use it often in the UAE. If I can learn more Arabic than I know
Korean I'll be proud of myself. Maybe I'll try and learn French or
relearn German too.
Anyway, teaching here at Chung Deok Middle School has been a good
experience for me. It was a necessary step to getting an international
job. It was there at the right time. I met good people. And even
though I complain a lot, it was good for me and I'll miss it. But,
it's time to move on.
Anyway, the time has come for me to finish this log, turn off my
computer and leave this office for the final time.
we'll see you in Abu Dhabi.Take care.

Update July 2006

Sorry that I haven't updated in ages. Just haven't had a whole lot to write about. It'll be less than a month and I'll be visiting Calgary for a 2 week vacation to see firends, family and finalize cisa stuff for the UAE. It's getting really close to crunch time. I'm hoping to get the Twin fixed soon, it'll be soon that it goes to Busan to be shipped to the UAE. Having a few electrical problems, which I had hoped to fix with a new wiring harness. Problem is that several components were remopved, so I have to reinstall them. Ah... the blessings of Korean mechanics... yes there is the odd good one, just not in Yoeus, and not whereever this bike had been worked on before.
Anyway, that's my update...
Hey, I'm interested in this Al Gore movie... I think you should be too, even if you live in the Canadian land of Oil... and I'll live in the middle east... wow...
