I cannot deny that I am a slight mini-slump at work almost certainly brought on by the warmer weather. The realisation that my job may continue for another seventeen months is a blessing and a curse. Guaranteed wages and a chance to save. Potential tedium and growing indifference in store. If my company re-signs me then I have until October 2010 to go, doing the same thing, seeing largely the same students. Easy though it may appear, it becomes less and less enjoyable. A slow erosion of joy as the realisation takes full hold that the 'game' is far from over. I look out of the windows in my office at work and contemplate the future. Both mine and Korea's.
