I am a writer, educator, and activist. I teach writers to be more aware of the issues that they face. I also write and direct about issues of social justice. I spent years in the Peace Corps and did field work in South America. I am a mother of two beautiful daughters and I am trying to live my life with these same values. I am also a certified yoga teacher.
I am Karen Tso, and I have been in the Peace Corps. I teach yoga and I have been a yoga teacher for ten years. In the Peace Corps I lived in a country where we had no concept of time. I was in every moment of the day. Time goes by quickly when you are in the Peace Corps, it is like a bubble.
Time in the Peace Corps is basically like a 24/7 job. It is impossible to take a break. You are always on, every second of the day. This is not a good thing for people who are trying to live their lives with their values.
The Peace Corps is still a noble program, if not quite as noble as it was in the early 1960s. However, the Peace Corps job model is also quite unfulfilling. It’s very hard to find time to have fun. If you are teaching yoga, it is impossible to go to a class and not find out that you are the class’s yoga teacher. If you are a teacher of yoga, it is impossible to have fun when you are being a teacher.
Sure, the Peace Corps is great. But, as many people who are in it already know, it is also quite a bit like being in prison. The Peace Corps is almost like the prison of the mind, and it is impossible to make time for fun if you are not able to have fun.
It is actually impossible to have fun in the Peace Corps. In fact, it is impossible to have fun in any situation without thinking you are doing it wrong. This is because even if the situation is pretty good, it will still keep you from having fun. That is, unless you are willing to give up everything you believe in. Think about it. If you are a person who loves doing things for the wrong reasons, you probably wouldn’t have fun in the Peace Corps.
Karen Tso is one of those people who loves doing things for the wrong reasons. She loves to be a teacher and a translator and to help people. She loves to get her friends together and to play games with them, but she hates the peace-keeping work that comes with it. She is a complete social misfit and has trouble even talking to people. As such, there are those who would say that she is destined to suffer from the Peace Corps curse.
Karen Tso says she is not a bad person. She has strong opinions on a lot of things in life that she loves. She wants to be a writer, which many people find appealing, even if it means her writing is a little dark. But she hates the work of writing. She is so bored with the whole day-to-day world, that she often just sleeps until midnight. It’s the middle of the night, and her friends are watching movies together.
She is the first “curse” that I have ever heard of, and it makes me think that there may be more of these to come. It’s hard to believe, but I have met several people who claim to have been cursed. I don’t know if there’s any truth to that, but we’ll see.
Karen Tso is a Korean American writer, and her name is linked to the “korean curse.” I have heard of people who were cursed with a particular disease, or were born with a particular personality, or a particular body part. Most of these are just stories people are told to scare the hell out of people so they don’t do something stupid, or to make them do something stupid.
