Sorry, Sorry...

I just want to apologize for not posting this week. I know I need to blog about my weekend in Seoul and I need to put up the pictures, but I have not had a spare moment this week. I've got a million things going on at school, as we are preparing for the big Halloween party and the speech contests, plus I had classes to give tests to this week. On top of that, I've been unlucky enough to get a migraine every single night this week, so I've had to function on about three hours of sleep a night (the pain keeps me awake). I'm hoping to get a chance to write a decent post later today, but if not, I'll do my best to get one up before the weekend (since this is going to be another busy weekend).

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
