Writing Letters

In my year abroad, I have really started to re-appreciate writing letters. It wasn’t that long ago that my friends and I were waiting around to see that clock tick to three o’ clock to see our mailman walk by to distribute the day’s mail that I would walk out and see an envelope that a friend wrote from his or her trips over the summer abroad. I remember the envelopes would be decorated or full of stickers. And for many of us who were artistically challenged, just a pretty envelope from the stationary store. (Remember Sanrio stationary?)  Read More

Revelations from”Blood Brother”

Last week I wrote a blog a post about the importance of a human connection: one that we all strive to have, a human necessity. Then, Netflix suggested “Blood Brother”. Talk about my world being shattered. I highly recommend this film to anyone who needs a dose of reality and anyone who might be questioning or might be in search of how to make a difference in the world.

This Is Acting

Sia’s seventh album, “This Is Acting” is created with the intent she wrote “for other people” she told nme during her interview.

Nine Track Mind

From an appearance on one of the most widely watched day time television shows, to landing a spot on Ellen Degeneres’ record label to a major record label, the New Jersey native has certainly made big waves in the pop charts in the last few years. Charlie Puth, better known to many fans for his acoustic renditions of Adele’s “Someone Like You,” and Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now,” has become the new face of the cell phone wall papers and ringtones to every teenager around the world.

Are you Korean or American?

Deciding to come to live in South Korea for  year, I never really considered the downfalls of being an American that happens to be Korean as well. I have never thought about being Korean or American or having the option to be one or the other, really. And while growing up, as most people of many diverse cultures do, you have a tendency to identify with one or more cultures over the other. I have never had to think about it or have to chose one or the other in my thirty years of life, until tonight. It’s like the standardized testing we all take in elementary school that asks for us to identify which race we belong to. Read More
