I miss Myeongdong :( But only for the experience, though. I rarely ever bought anything there besides food to enlarge my stomach even more than it already was.
Samsung Galaxy Note II
Yes, it’s a large phone with a screen that could consume even the iPhone 5’s remote control-like body.
But it’s a darn good phone. And I love it.
So shut up about the size.
“Never settle for anything less than your dream.” -d
I’m not an open person. I have a lot of feelings and thoughts but not many people know. Though I’m reluctant to reveal too much, if any, of what goes in my head, I won’t hesitate to explain myself when people assume things about me that aren’t true.
I’m not “cold-hearted” or “mean”. I especially hate when people can’t see my perspective on things or judge my decisions. I’m not sorry for choosing to live for myself.
I am also not sorry for wanting to travel all over the world and take this opportunity to fulfill a dream I had since I was a kid. I just don’t see myself settling down just yet. I don’t even think I will ever settle down - but if I do, and it’s a very big possibility, I don’t want to do it in my hometown. I’m going to be honest, I don’t like my hometown. I hate the atmosphere, I hate the bad memories, I hate living with my family. When I was in Korea for two years, I had a little bit of hope that the things that needed to be changed within my family would change, but when I returned, everything remained the same. It’s like time froze at the time I was enjoying myself in Seoul, where time seems to disappear much faster than in some boring SoCal city. My mom wonders why I can’t just live the rest of my life in this boring city and I think that once you’ve experienced the city life you can’t just go back to a place that feels like time is literally crawling. I fell in love with San Francisco and it may just be the place for me, but I don’t think it’s *thee* place. I’m not convinced just yet. I have a place in mind that I have wanted to live in since before I graduated high school. I have made a plan to move there but I never started. For years, I’ve been putting off moving there because of stupid reasons (though living in Korea was most definitely NOT a stupid reason for me), but I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want in life and I absolutely must do it now. Once you start living independently, there’s no turning back.
My mom and the rest of my family will question me for these decisions, but it’s MY LIFE and I will not bend over backwards to satisfy others, even in my bloodline. :) Nothing, not even my family and friends, is here to prevent me from packing my bags. Luckily I don’t have any baggage that will keep me here forever (which is something I DREAD). I will not explain myself but the only thing I can say is “I’m not happy here. I just WANT to do this. If you don’t like it, then too bad!”
I will continue to live my life…
My favorite spot in SF. (guess why^^)
Restaurant near Taejongdae~
I have been waiting almost my entire life to see this bridge in person. It may or may not sound lame to you, but it sure is meaningful to me!
I left my
heart mark in Busan~
Living 20 minutes away from the beach by car is amazing. I used to drive here every morning before going up to State for class and doing my morning walk/jog along the shore. Being able to enjoy this year round is also amazing.
Chillin with friends^^
Hi there~ I was teaching English while I was there. And yeah I know the feeling of taking candid pics. I had to use many methods to stay discreet, such as taking photos from a distance, pretending to shoot landmarks, not looking directly at the viewfinder, and so on. However, in Korea it’s sort of a big thing to take photos, although it’s far more common to use a smartphone. So after awhile, it becomes easy to stop caring and you eventually become brave^^
