seoul / a week at home away from home

koreaoct_4-checker-copywhen i was back in korea for a week last month it got me wondering (which doesn’t happen very often, btw) how my life would’ve turned out if my family never left korea to begin with. what i’d be doing this very moment. to be honest it never crossed my mind i will ever go back to korea for good but seeing some of my friends, a tck like myself, assimilating so seamlessly into their new life in korea got me wondering maybe it’s not as bad as everyone makes out..

obscure indeeeeed..

it’s been a long time and i feel like i say this every time i update a new post these days.. but seriously i’m realizing how valuable it is to have the luxury of time to be able to do what you genuinely love doing and the importance of finding the time to do that in the midst of all the craziness that life throws at you every. single. day.
