Not knowing

Finally, I had a chance to visit Korea after spending 2 years in the U.S. I was soooooo happy to see my family and my old friends! I had many many great foods, especially my mom's cooking.

After three weeks, now I am back in Providence, spending time alone to think. Being alone always makes me think. I am reflecting on how difficult it was to live in the U.S by myself at first. I remember being alone and lonely. I can't believe I actually made it through the two years of graduate school, not to mention the two years that followed. I had no idea how difficult it was going to be to live in a different country, and I think not knowing was what allowed me to decide to come to the U.S.
But as I grow up, I think I am getting more and more life experiences, and as I get to know more, my fear is also getting bigger. I feel so vulnerable. I desire more and more certainty in life. But at the same time, if I knew what I was going to be and what was going to happen, would it still be fun to live? So much thoughts in my head.

A part of Russia.. I guess I was close to the Arctic. It was STUNNING!
