Spotlight on Members: Patrick Kim

Patrick Kim (Left)

Thank you Younhee Choi for passing me the ball!

I am hoteling from:

I am hoteling from the wonderful town of Annandale, Virginia.

What made you decide to hotel or stay on campus:

Have you heard of something called covid-19? I worked on campus a few days a week. I don’t anymore.

Do you have any hobbies or activities that you are passionate about? Can you briefly share it with us?

Every day I get out on the water to sail is a great day. Moving a boat at those speeds with just the wind is something else.

Favorite book or movie:

An eerily apropos movie for my life during this pandemic is Groundhog Day (1993).  My favorite book is the MPEP…jk, Green Eggs and Ham.

Favorite restaurant or food:

Restaurants that have outdoor seating…nope, wait, infections just rose again. Mix Lucky Charms, Trix, and Frosted Flakes together – so good.

Favorite weekend activities:

The weekdays and weekends all blur together so now my favorite activity is not looking at a computer monitor.

Any new skillset you’ve picked up during this pandemic?

Kitchen skills

What is your motto?

Always have an escape plan. Never let them see you bleed.

Shout out to other KAIPO members close to you (any messages you want to send to other member(s)):

I have been contacted by a lot of members (too many to list) checking in on me. I am eternally grateful and I love you all – you know who you are.

Anything else you want to share with KAIPO?

Put aside time daily to reflect on and appreciate the blessings of your life.

Any words of encouragement you want to share with the members during the pandemic?

Ordinary humdrum routines will test your resolve. Don’t despair. Tomorrow is a new day.

Hope we can meet somewhere “close to” your place soon. Can’t remember when was my last time I visited Annandale anymore.
