This time, I write from San Francisco. That’s right, I’ve returned. And it was a very fun trip. But that’s all on that for now.

For the first time in a long time, I have a celebrity crush.

Younha. And only three years older than me. ❤

A guy can dream.


Nonsensical Musings

June 27, 2008

Ahh so. In Seoul for another two days. I have yet to get a tourist tee for a someone. But that’s ok, I’ll get something better if I don’t. We’ve been touring for quite a while now, within the city, observing age-old customs and examining architecture of my forefathers.

It is now two in the morning here (more accurately, 1:23 A.M.) and I can’t seem to get tired, although I’ve been out for most of the day. Simply musings of a nonsensical nature. I think I might be allergic to something here. Every night I break into very itchy hives all over my limbs. Which is a shame because I was considering studying abroad here. It would be so nice to be able to fluently speak Korean. Speaking of which, my Korean is pretty bad. I spent a full five minutes ordering at McDonalds here. Though I think I know enough to live here. Just a lot of repeating and kringlish. It feels incredibly summery here and I think it suits me quite well here. Which reminds me, the Song of The Summer 2007, Missed the Boat by Modest Mouse, is still the most played song in my music library.

And that’s all that is on my mind at the mo’. Hope to see all of you alive and well in three days.

Refreshing the Seoul

June 22, 2008

After a full week of touring, we have finally reached our final destination of Seoul. It’s a wonderfully metropolistic city, complete with loose traffic laws, giant department stores, and huge multiplex apartment high rises. And it has been quite the trip getting here. A majority of the time, the weather was not on our side, giving us torrents of rain. But that’s in the past. I’m now here. And you know the best part about it? Free wi-fi internet at the hotel. It was almost enough to make me squeal with excitement. Almost.

NorKor and SoKor went head to head in soccer today and came out with a tie. What the heck is this crap?

Two more days of touring and then out into the populus to test my Kor skills. Will I be ready for it?

I write to you not from a state of insomnia, but from another state all together. The Rep of Kor, to be exact, and it’s just as I remember it: hot, humid, muggy. But with all this comes a brand new sense of excitement. For the first time ever, I will have the ability to walk around and explore by myself. No parents, a good thing. No cousins, a bad thing. But it will be a learning experience. Why?

나는 한국어를 잘 못 해요.

My solution?

한국에서 영어를 안 하고 싶어요.

I didn’t realize that I missed Kor so much. It’ll definitely be fun. I promise pictures soon.

Flailing Failure?

June 14, 2008

I’m still not quite sure what I want to do with this. I don’t have many presentable talents. We will see if it does any better in the future.

I leave for Rep of Kor tomorrow afternoon. A majority of people are requesting “something cool”. Hope they approve of what I deem cool. Otherwise, they are in for a very unpleasant surprise.

I received $200 and a digital camera for graduating. Pictures soon?

While I’m gone, visit these fabulous establishments: 1901 San Jose Ave, San Francisco and 500 Kirkham St, San Francisco

Friendly Wisdom

A good friend once described his relationship with his dad that I wish I had with mine.

Most people say “If my dad finds out, he’ll kill me.”

He says “If my dad finds out, I’ll kill myself.”

See the difference?

Project yaiskor is a go. Godspeed.
