My [Same As Me] Friend (나 처럼 똑같은 친구)

“Time will pass and seasons will come and go [but friends will stay the same] ~ Roy Bean.”  I recently used this quote in one of my online posts because no matter how many seasons pass I know that friendships with some of my closest friends will still stay the same.  As mentioned in a…

The Giving Friend (기빙 프렌드)

In reviewing my blog’s most published topics I have realized that I write more about love, travel, and family and have not written too much about my friends, friendships, and ties.  Having as many close friends as fingers on my hands I thought that I should dedicate a few posts this year to the friends…

Family Migration(가족 이주)

Often on my mind as well as those with scattered relatives I wonder why families choose to migrate.  Sometimes for better livelihoods, sometimes for more freedoms, and very often in pursuit of one’s dreams for themselves or for one’s family.  Family migrations have been apart of human history since our nomadic days.  But can one…

Thoughts on Breaking up? (헤어지는 생각?)

If thoughts of breaking up are on your mind then some may ask you what might be wrong in your relationship.  Truthfully, there are positives and negatives in all relationships similar to yin and yang.  If the balance is steady then any issues that a relationship may face can weather any storm.  That is how…

Summer Plans (여름 계획)

Summer is officially here and just like last summer I plan to write a few posts related to childhood stories, new experiences with old friends, family time, and love.  This past month I was somewhat disconnected in blogging due to some events taking place.  However, as my birthday month kicks-off I have been re-building myself…

Inspiring Millennials – No.3 (영감을주는 천년 세대)

Can you inspire others?  Not simply a yes and no answer type question the meaning behind inspire is not concrete.  Some people can say yes that they can inspire others because of their charisma, well-verse use of words, personalities, career positions, or even creative ideas.  While others may say no this question if they feel…

K-Travel: Boryeong Mud Festival(보령머드축제)

(my travel story continued from K-Travel: Jeonju (전주)) Once we arrived at the Jeonju bus terminal we were able to find the time-table schedule of Boryeong/Daecheon Beach bound buses.  Purchasing tickets for a noon bus me and Kevin sat down to wait until boarding time.  Within twenty minutes we left to stand in line for…

K-Travel: Jeonju (전주)

It was a hot, very humid, summer day back in 2014 when I decided to plan my first 4-5 day out-of-Seoul backpacking trip in Korea.  Being my first trip alone I decided to see most of the south-western, central, and eastern regions of Korea and travel through Jeollabuk-do, Chungcheongnam-do, and Gyeongsangbuk-do.  Prior to my departure I…

Growing Pains (자라나는 고통)

Unlike the 1985 sitcom show Growing Pains or adolescent growing pains the growing pains we all experience in life is the continual growing pains of falling out of touch and contact with those whom surround our lives. Beginning with the playground to work office spaces, from high school to graduate school, from first loves to…

Healthy Living (건강한 살기) – Part 3

Do you strive to live a long healthy life?  Based on the question asked many people would say they do.  But, how many of us (individually) strive to ensure that we place utmost importance on our health? Our focus on our health begins when we start to learn about what being healthy is and how…

The End of the School Year / My Favorite Recent Memories

It’s finally June 1st or June 2nd depending on what side of the world you are residing in. For me June officially marks the end of the school year and my international student’s departures back home to China, Korea, Egypt, Taiwan and elsewhere in just two weeks! In one week the 2016-2017 school year at…
