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…

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…

Life Lessons: Learned Lessons (삶의 교훈: 배운 교훈)

As a part of my Yeppuntwenties section I wanted to share a few life lessons that I have learned or re-learned in recent years.  These lessons each taught me something new about myself and my life.

Arriving in Cambodia

Aunt Life (이모 라이프)

Aunt or Auntie, Tati or Tatis(*means aunt in Haitian Creole-French) are future names I will be called by my nephew once he learns to speak. It seems quite nostalgic that just eight months ago he was only a newborn baby, welcomed into the family. As a first time aunt I was elated and blessed. Elated…

Courage to Grow (용기와 노화)

Less than two weeks ago I turned 28. My birthday was a quiet one this year. No birthday cake or evening celebration, just a quiet one with family for the first time in a while. Being a simple birthday this year gave me the chance to look back and reminisce about my louder, splashier, and…
