Super Crazy Happy Fun Korea Adventure!

As classes enter their fourth week this year, I enter my first week as a genuine resident at the University of Tampa. Yes, I have recently resigned from my post at Residence Life and now find myself with much more time on my hands. In the future I hope to invent time travel, journey into the past and give the knowledge to my younger self so that it becomes possible for me to eat, sleep and travel about in the one to two hours a day I had earmarked for such tasks on my previous schedule. But for now I have too many lifestyle changes to cope with to tackle the problems of quantum physics.

Since I have rarely, if ever, done anything more physical than walking around, it is difficult for me to find a sport that I can expect to excel in. Whenever there’s a ball being thrown around, you can expect me to hit the dirt, even if the players are nowhere near me. This problem isn’t limited to physical sports: past experience has proven that even the possibility of an amorous encounter with one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever met isn’t enough for me to learn to play chess.
