Over a week ago, Grace introduced me to David Gray, an English singer-songwriter. Ever since I’ve been listening to his songs everywhere I go (on the way to work, jogging, doing chores around the house). Along with Roma Di Luna, listening to all these mellow songs, I just feel calmer throughout the day.

I decided that it is now the right time to write about my current life journey. This will be the first of many. As I mentioned, I am from Korea. I was adopted at a very late age by an American family. Growing up, they have been very caring and supportive. I always felt loved. [...]

For some reason, I haven’t been saving as much as I used to. What’s up with that? I decided that it was time to pay more attention to my finances and stop buying everything that I see. In general, it is cheaper to live in Seoul. The rent is lower, the food is by far [...]

I have a MacBook Pro (the smaller one). For a while I’ve been debating how to organize all my thousands of pictures: iPhoto or Picasa. After reading more about their differences in forums and other blogs, I realized that since I also have a Windows XP based PC, it makes more sense to use something [...]

Garage sale? What garage sale? No such thing in Korea. Sure there are people who go to farmer’s markets. Sure there are those who trade their books at a used book store for other books. But why can’t the people in your neighborhood just gather together to try to have a garage sale? I decided [...]

As I mentioned before, I am from Ohio. I am a product of Ohio State. Both my parents went there. I grew up watching Ohio State football and Ohio State basketball. If I had ever mentioned “Michigan” in the house, my dad would probably have disowned me. Anyway, I still follow all things related to [...]

I’ve been having some trouble sleeping recently. I would wake up in the middle of the night (several times) and would just lay there trying to find a way to fall back asleep. A couple of times, I got up at like 5 in the morning for a light jog. I figured, why not? Since [...]

I decided a week ago to stop drinking for at least the next 3 months. Ever since I turned 21 (maybe even before that), I don’t know if I’ve ever gone that long without at least one drink. I realized that I don’t really like some of the things I do or say when I [...]

All I want to say at this point is I want LeBron James to stay in Cleveland. BUT it would really be fun to watch him play with Wade in Chicago or Miami. Every game would be like an All Star game.
