New Camera + Gear

Hello, everybody! I know it’s been so long since my last post, but thank you again for being patient with me as I enter the final two weeks before finally getting on that flight to South Korea. I have so many posts to catch up on, but please bear with me as I’ll have amazing content to share with you all soon! I’m in the midst of planning a full day trip around Seoul for my friend Yasania and I since it will be her first time there. I’m not going to say where or what I’m planning because I’m keeping it a surprise (she’s subscribed via email to my blog so I can’t mention it here!). Let’s just say that I know she will love it. Anyways, I thought I’d do a quick post showing you guys some new tech goodies I got to capture my upcoming experiences in Korea and up my blog game!

Embarking on My Study Abroad Journey

Hello, everybody! Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while or know me personally may know that I will soon be leaving home to begin my life abroad. If you are new here, I will be attending Yonsei University in South Korea for a year starting this fall semester. As a student currently enrolled in San Jose State University, I applied for Yonsei’s student exchange program through the California State University International Programs organization. I guess you could say I embarked on this journey seven months ago with applications and research, along with other aspects of the study abroad process, but I can’t believe that in a few weeks, I will be leaving my home in America and returning to South Korea – the country of my birth and heritage.

Making an Amigurumi Giraffe

Hello, everybody! Last week, my family and I drove down to Los Angeles in southern California for my cousin’s son’s first birthday. I made an adorable giraffe stuffed animal for little baby Benjamin. In this post, I also shed a bit of insight into the Korean culture as I explain the significance of first birthdays. I hope you like it! Continue reading

Fox & Goose

Hello, everybody! Two weeks ago, my friends and I went to grab dinner and catch up. My friend Zoilyn suggested a pub-style restaurant called Fox & Goose. It was my first time there, so naturally, I had to take some pictures! The food was so visually pleasing, so I have to share! Continue reading

A Day at the Farmers’ Market

Hello, everybody! It’s been so long since my last post! I’ve done a lot of cool things this past few weeks but haven’t had time to sit down and blog. I am taking two intense summer courses in writing and meteorology. Both cover four months worth of material in a five-week span, so you can probably imagine the workload I have been assigned to. I also just realized that I am on week four, so this is great! Anyways, I went to the farmers’ market with my mom two or three weeks ago, and I thought I would share some photos. I hope you like them! Continue reading

Big Announcement Reveal

Hello everyone! Do you remember when I mentioned in a Face Mask Friday (blog post here) that I would be announcing some big news around April? Well, I received a few notifications earlier on Thursday, so I’m able to share the news with you all today: I’m going to Yonsei University! Continue reading

Locks of Love

Hello everybody! Yesterday, I cut off 20 inches of hair to donate to a public, non-profit organization called Locks of Love. This organization takes in hair donations to provide wigs to children undergoing hair loss for medical reasons. As this was one of my New Year’s resolutions, I thought I would share the journey with you all. Continue reading

New Year’s Resolutions 2017

Happy New Year, everybody! Can you believe it? It’s finally 2017! I, for one, actually think that this year whizzed passed us – even Christmas came and went. Anyways, you know how the saying goes: “new year, new me!” A big part of that is the resolutions we make at the start of the new year, so I thought I would share with you all some of mine. Continue reading

Three Fourths Shop & Haul

Hey there! Long time no blog! Sorry for the hiatus, but I’m back!

Today, my friend Tim drove my other friend Kyle and I to Arden Fair Mall. Tim needed to get his MacBook repaired, but since he was going to the Apple Store in the Mall anyways, why not bring some of his friends along, right? Originally, the plan was four of us going, but one had a last minute request from someone to take her to Napa for an event so she could not make it (hence the title “Three Fourths”). It was just the three of us, so we did her the favor of vlogging all the fun we had and that she missed out on (you’re welcome Zoilyn /insert winking face here). From Tim’s freestyle bar spitting in the car to the ever so magical Disney Store, we made sure to capture it all on Snapchat (if you’d like to follow my daily adventures on snapchat, my username is Lk891219).
