Secrets to how I save money – every day and while traveling

I’m sure everyone has a method of how they personally save money, but I thought I would share with you some of mine. Every day living I have been dubbed the Coupon Queen. So that would be secret #1. Whenever you go to a store, check beforehand if you can use a coupon. I use…

Venturing to Vancouver

  The first weekend in February my friend Melanie and I took yet another trip to a K-pop concert. This stop: Vancouver. It’s actually the furthest west that either of us had been, which was cool. We were able to cross two things off our bucket lists that way. The Concert This trip was to…

An Adventure in Atlanta

Kicking off 2020 right. At the end of January, only a week before our trip to Vancouver, my friend Melanie and I headed to Atlanta, Georgia. Why Atlanta, you ask? For a K-pop concert, of course. Even though Atlanta wasn’t on my bucket list, I think going to a K-pop concert is a pretty darned…

Resolute in February

I’m pleased to announce that my January resolution went well. If you didn’t read my blog post, I was inspired by a friend of mine to have small resolutions each month, as well as more general ones to keep throughout the year. My resolution for January was a shopping ban. This meant not buying anything…

Party Like it’s the End of a Decade

As 2019 comes to a close, I am reminded of the fact that it is indeed the end of a decade as well. In 2009, I was in 9th grade, and didn’t really contemplate the significance of the end of the time frame. So this will be the completion of my second decade in life…

First Family Christmas Minus One

  This year for Christmas I will be home with family. If you have been following my blog, you know that last year I was in Korea for Christmas. Technically, last year was the first Christmas without my dad, but it was also my first Christmas apart from my family, so it was an altogether…

#Adulting

  So I have recently discovered that adulting is hard. Some of you might be nodding and smirking at this very obvious discovery, but since this blog is to share my personal experiences, I thought I would share this one. Moving to Korea at the end of 2018 was the first time I experienced living…

My First K-Concert

Now I’m not sure if K-Concert is an actual term, but I am using it to indicate a Korean concert. There’s K-Pop and K-dramas, so why not K-Concert? Either way, in November I traveled with a friend to Chicago to see a favorite Korean American artist of mine, Jay Park. Some of you might have…
