From Austin to Ktown to South Korea!

*Diary*

I’ve been busy here in Austin, Texas!

I partied for almost a week with friends AND family after I finished my last final on Tuesday the 13th, graduated from law school on Saturday the 17th, and started working at a nonprofit law firm on Monday the 20th!

Yes, I like my job and the people I work with, although I am definitely still “learning the ropes.” And, when I come home from work, which is an amazing feeling now that I’ve redecorated my apartment home, I have so much free time that I just don’t know what to do with it– except relax and do absolutely nothing…

Nothing other than watch my shows and hang out with my friends.

After all, it is summer!

Anyway, I am waiting to start my third job as a proofreader. My second job (I’ve had it for a year or two now) is writing for various clients that I receive through my agent.

Both are remote, so I just work at home.

^^

Work hard…

Play harder!

For me, “play” includes everything from partying (usually with my friends– not my family) to watching my shows to blogging, so stay tuned for more from The “Feeding Your KDrama Addiction” Series along with The Top 6 Reasons People REALLY Go To South Korea and Preparing for Life in Korea: Working in Korea.

In the meantime, HERE is something different to watch, a hilarious web series about life in Ktown for one Korean-American who’s brand spankin’ new to L.A.:

When John Kim (Lanny Joon) relocates from the comforts of his picket-fence, WASP neighborhood of Richmond, Virginia to the alluring city of Ktown Los Angeles, the land of sultry women, Booking Clubs, and late night taco trucks, his arrival immediately sparks the most epic night of his life. His cousin, Jason (Shane Yoon) introduces John to his audacious crew (Peter Jae, Danny Cho, Sunn Wee, and Bobby Big Phony Choy) who teach John the basic yet inventive ways on how to survive the perfect Friday night in Ktown.”

Honestly, we’ve got late night taco trucks here in Austin, Texas, too. In fact, ours are all day! Other than that little fact I have to add that I LOVED this show because it shows a different side of Korean culture– the (very) American side!

And, my friend and fellow blogger The Traveling Kimchi, who is currently in South Korea, is having an awesome giveaway, so be sure to watch and listen to what she has to say:

As for me…

"I'll be back."~

P.S.: I’m working on an Ask Your Unni  thing– just your typical advice column, so start asking me any questions you have about life and love in South Korea on my Ask Your Unni tumblr blog HERE.

*Korean Culture: The Good, The Bad, &The Ugly*

Before The Traveling Kimchi was The Traveling Kimchi, she was just a girl named Jessica that I met in my first Korean class back in 2011. Little did I know that she would become a great friend AND fellow blogger years later.

We met again in 2013– when I went to Korea last winter. We had an amazing time at my favorite bar– Bunker, my last night there.

Recently, I found out that she’s been blogging about her adventures in South Korea, too, so I knew that I had to introduce her to you and share her adventures with you, too!^^

“Who is the Traveling Kimchi?”

“Why, she’s a tiny half Korean-Irish American currently living in Seoul, South Korea! After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin the Traveling Kimchi decided it was time to explore her roots! Since her arrival in 2012 she has been blogging about her experiences not only in Korea but all of her adventures abroad. She hopes you will enjoy traveling along with her and are inspired to pick up your own passport and see a culture and world beyond your own.”

– From The Traveling Kimchi’s Facebook Page

In addition, The Traveling Kimchi and westerngirleasternboy might be two very different blogs by two very different people, but we share the same exact mission:

“… to encourage thinking openly, meeting new people, having lifetime experiences, and traveling abroad.”

The Traveling Kimchi is on Youtube, and I wanted to share this cover she did with you all since it IS Sunday morning!

By now, we probably all need a little pick me up before the week starts, so here it is:

She has a lot of other great videos on everything from her adventures in Korea and Thailand to her favorite beauty products to what to do BEFORE you come to Korea, so be sure to check them out!

Sunday morning…

For some of us, “rain is falling.”

For some of us, it’s Easter, and we’re with our families– celebrating what should be a day that is less about hunting for eggs and more about hunting for something else.

For some of us, though, it’s just another Sunday– the Sunday before our last week of school… ever.

(That would be me!)

So, I’ll be watching Korean dramas and trying to write and edit my final papers! My last year of law school is coming to a close, and I can’t wait to start working, traveling, and living. I might even get to see The Traveling Kimchi again sooner than either of us thought…

The Traveling Kimchi, take me with you!~

The Traveling Kimchi, please take me with you!~
