Lately | March

Currently March 5

Staring at my bags, packed in the corner of my otherwise empty room.

Flying to Korea tomorrow.

Amazed at all the synchronicity I’ve experienced as this big move came together. 

Content that I’ve been able to say my goodbyes-for-now to almost all of my loved ones. 

Giggling (still) over how gosh-darn cute these Korean flag cupcakes I made turned out. 

Designing a website & logo for a new venture I’m really excited about.

Drinking a lot of chocolate almond milk and white wine.

Eating a batch of these amazing cookies, one by one. 

Loving the fact that it’s still light out around 6PM nowadays.

Turning pro (slowly but surely) after reading the awesome book.

Editing interesting videos for the Red Tent Sisters

Discovering new podcasts I can fall in love with – the comments section in this article helped! 

Nervous about starting to teach children on Monday.

Staying positive. 

Grateful for all the love and supportive words I’ve gotten from everyone around me about my move to Korea. 

Resolving to get back to my yoga practice + start taking more photos again. 

Filling notebooks with ideas and quotes. 

Planning to watch all this year’s Oscar-nominated movies…of course, now that the Oscars are over, right?

Happy to be escaping the frigid temperatures and snow to go to a warmer climate. 

Excited/disbelieving/overwhelmed by the fact that in a few days I will be living in Korea. 

Feeling BLESSED. It’s a wild and wonderful life.

  1. Hi! My name is Young Mi and I am from Korea, currently living in Vancouver. While searching for a cheap hand blender, I ran into your blog posting about it. I bought the same one(pc brand) and tried making smoothies too today. It worked well! Thanks for that information. What a pleasant surprise you are leaving for Korea. I will bookmark your blog and check it out often. If you have any questions about living in Korea, please feel free to ask me. Busan is a beautiful port city, which has a similar vibe of Vancouver. Hope you have a fun experience there! Take care.

      Hi Young Mi Do!! So glad you found that the hand blender worked well for you! I bought a Korean brand when I got to Korea but I still love the idea of making smoothies with a hand blender, it’s my favourite thing. Makes clean up so easy!

      I would love any advice you have about living in Korea or places I should check out! I want to explore Korea as much as I can and it would be great to get some tips from someone who has lived here. :) Plus it’s so cool that you are living in Vancouver, I’m pretty sure that’s where I want to move after I am done my contract in Korea!

      I saw your other comment too – your English is so excellent. And it’s so interesting you met your boyfriend when he was teaching here! I think it’s true about learning the language through your co-workers and taxi drivers, at least that has been my experience so far.

      Look forward to hearing from you! Thanks again for your comment. :)

  2. Just so you know, it takes a lot of courage to live in another country, especially in a country where you can’t understand their language. I met my Canadian boyfriend while he was teaching English in Korea. (And we came to Canada together.) He learned useful Korean phrases through his co-workers and taxi drivers. :) So, Good luck!
