Goeun Park: Powering through naive fantasy, columnist makes it to college
“Excuse me, what state are we in?” “South Dakota. That’ll be $1.34,” the lady behind the counter said without batting an eye. I purchased my coffee and looked at my phone: 4:20 a.m. That was last Wednesday. For the better part of last week, my family took a road trip...

Goeun Park: Free falling, the experience of skydiving
Katie Larson didn’t push me out of a plane two miles above ground last Saturday but she did sign me up for it. It sounded like a good idea at the time — a somewhat dangerous and slightly expensive idea but a good idea nonetheless. After signing away my rights to sue in the...

Goeun Park: Memory is a grand thing – she thinks
In moments of great desperation, I used to wish for temporary amnesia so I had an excuse to avoid tests, “grown-up” responsibilities, and the like. Of course, that was possibly the most senseless thing anyone could ever wish for and thankfully, that delusional fantasy never...

Goeun Park: Childhood fears grow to adult size
In elementary school, my friends and I whispered to each other the most fantastic horror stories in the middle of the night. We’d gather around a flashlight and squeal about headless woodland animals, vengeful ghost-children and spiteful souls — the usual supernatural terrors. We...

Goeun Park: Getting over the fear of missing out
“Are you going to WE Fest this year?” Despite my public indifference to country music and distaste for crowds, I’ve been asked this question more than I could count. “Oh. Well, no. I wasn’t planning on it.” I say this and I am immediately doubtful. Should I go? Everyone...

Goeun Park: A simple ‘what if’ changes everything
Often, I wonder what would have happened if I stayed. Or left. Or said what I wanted to say or said what I should have said or said nothing. These “what if” situations stay with me longer than they probably should. As a compulsive daydreamer, hypothetical situations are quite...

Goeun Park: Castaway Club week has spiritual impact
“Are you there God? It’s me, Goeun. I think I’m going to die. I know I say that about three times a day, but I’m pretty convinced this time. “I just sneezed half my weight in snot and my throat tastes like the bubonic plague. I’m sorry if I infected any innocent children...

Goeun Park: Before life became technology driven, a letter in the mail was like Christmas
If there was a popularity contest in my family based on who gets the most mail, Dad is the unequivocal winner. Today, he is the lucky recipient of two bills, a flyer for a product I’m sure he doesn’t need and an impersonal letter from a credit card company that misses him terribly. Four...

Goeun Park: Sibling rivalry — and sibling — will be missed
“Goeun, can I have $20?” my brother Jin asks in the careless fashion all the youngest of the family must have trademarked at birth. Despite the deceptive tilt of a question in his voice, it’s not really a request. He really means, “Goeun, I’m going to take $20 from you...

Goeun Park: The wild excitement of one Saturday
The day I got this column gig, I was bouncing on cloud nine. For one, this was my first “real” job, and getting paid to do things was a terrifically novel concept. Here was my chance to show the world (or Detroit Lakes and the surrounding area) how dashingly funny and clever...

Goeun Park: Skinny does not equal pretty
Every summer between seventh and 11th grade, I promised to lose 10 pounds. Every summer between seventh and 11th grade, I never questioned why. Much like many teenage girls across the world, I had been brainwashed to think summer was the season to shed the space between my skin...
