coughing up that last bit of blood

Dongguk University paid me my final bit of contract-mandated salary today; I promptly sent home 70% of it to cover US-based debts. Next month, with my coming windfall, I'll be able to send a ton more money home, and at long last I won't have to worry about paying those stupid late/overdraft fees for PNC Bank. The gods of finance and budgets will be pleased.

As a commenter reminded me, next month's pension isn't coming from Dongguk: it's coming from the Korean government—from Uncle Jang, so to speak. So as of August 31, Dongguk and I will be shut of each other. And so we move on to the next phase in this strange life.
