Today I spent two hour of my life on a proposal that refused to save correctly. I had to generate a proposal/ plan in order to make the self- defense club I am trying to create as a part of my project at Seoul YMCA. However, the document did not save correctly because the computer is in Korean in addition to the fact that the software has not been updated so the formation of everything on the device is different from what I am used to. Luckily, all the information stemmed from things I started learning when I was around 4-6 years old, so it was not too much trouble to replicate, but it was quite a hassle! (the second version was not as good as the first, though the second version was a bit more concise with better wording) Also, today I met the president of all the YMCA's* in Asia (OK, so I was in the same room as him, breathing the same air-- and I was commissioned to save a seat for him). Anyway, everything was interesting, and the coolest part was how driven and excited all the people seemed to be involved and helping with youth. On that note, yesterday, the boss of our department (not the big boss) walked by my desk and saw me checking something on my phone. A few moments later, he came by again and offered me a book in English all about the history of Seoul YMCA. I thought that he was telling me to read it as work, so I read diligently for two hours before getting up to return the now finished book to him. I guess that he had just wanted to give me a thoughtful gift... AWKWARD!!!
