Photos lie when you’re teaching English in Seoul

Seoul. That snaking river that only made me feel more trapped. One or two happy moments that couldn’t be stretched to a life in Korea, that couldn’t smother the whimpering depression of my days as an introvert trying to entertain as a kindergarten teacher. My photos lie. I look so happy. And by happy, I mean drunk.

  1. Alisa, you *do* look happy in those photos, but unless we’re photojournalists, we’re less likely to be snapping away photographs in bad/downtimes. However, you can, you should draw hope from your smile to remind you that one can grab onto those moments of happiness, that those happy moments help strengthen your resolve to make something different happen, to be responsible for your own happiness by acting on it. At least, that’s what I took from your photos … 😉
