By the time this blog post goes up, I’ll be in a plane over the ocean, or some mountains, or something (I am not good at geography). At any rate, I will be back in North America after spending a year in South Korea — and that is still just so hard for me to believe. I feel like I arrived in Korea, fell asleep and dreamed a bit, then

It’s Sunday. Normally that wouldn’t really mean anything, but it’s our last Sunday in Korea. Next Sunday we’ll be in Texas, surrounded by our families and friends, and reunited with Sherman. Our little apartment is relatively empty, only necessities remain accessible. Everything else is packed in our bags or shipped home already. It’s so strange to be on the otherside of the year. People are talking about Cinco de Mayo

Let me begin by stating: I love bento boxes. I was first introduced to them in junior high, and again in college when I worked part-time at a sushi restaurant.

I’ve never celebrated the Lunar New Year before. In fact, I was previously unaware as to what dates it even fell on. Oh, the things I’ve learned about holidays whilst living abroad.

Every time we go out in Seoul now I am all, “This could be the last time we [insert anything here]!” It’s not over-dramatic at all, I swear. This weekend, I thought we needed one more trip to Edae (because, shoes!) and one more theme cafe find (although I knew it would be hard to top the sheep cafe). I also endeavored to lure our friends Nikki and David out

We’ve definitely had our ups and downs in Korea, but the last three days has been a fairly consistent “down.”
Saturday began as any normal Saturday should, waking up late and eating breakfast in bed while watching TV. I have been pretty sick for the last couple of days (I am going to blame Japan’s obscenely cold weather), and I just wanted to relax with some Kleenexes and Theraflu. Then,
