OOTD: Marching into March

February was my birthday month. It was definitely a weighty, jam-packed month: the first half was spent teaching one of the most intensive programs of my school year, while the latter was spent traveling in Bali (which was technically a vacation—but have you ever come back from a vacation just EXHAUSTED? As fun as it was, it’s nice to be home and still for a moment).

In Korea, the new school year starts on March 1st, and with March signifying the end of my birthday month, it always feels like a new start for me. I’m a year older, and while 365 days have passed, lessons have been learned, struggles have been had and joys have felt, it’s nice to look forward to what this next year will bring.
