  • such a small, simple word.

    yet the speaker of the single-syllable ultimately desires something extraordinary or complex.

    'I wish... it would stop raining.'
    'I wish... there would be no more violence in the world.'
    'I wish... my friends were here.'

    It came to my attention tonight that I was becoming one of these wishers.
    after thinking for a while, I realized that I may wish I had my good friends here, or even had a big group of friends. however, if I do not act upon my desires, I will 'wish' that I had taken advantage of the incredible opportunities Korea has to offer after I've returned home.

    Starting now, I will stop wishing unattainable thoughts. It is time to really explore this beautiful city.
