Since the 18th of December, I have resided in chilly Korea. For those of you who do not know, my brother & parents live here, so it’s been a while since I’ve seen them! I usually am not ecstatic to see them, but this time around, my trip has been great.
These are a few things I have done since I’ve been here:
-Visited Christina Cho in Busan (shopped, watched 2 movies, bought gifts, ate street food)
-Went to the dentist 6+ times for wisdom teeth extraction & crown repairs
-Ate lunch & caught up with Susan Lee at COEX mall
-Visited gramps on NYE & celebrated with him
-Had conversations with the mother about fears, pain, spiritual warfare, and revelations of God’s grace and love
-Had a snowball fight with mum & pa
-Bought RED shoes! :D
-Worked out with ma & bro
-Wrote (or attempted to write) new songs!
-Finished a korean drama about 3 pianists :P
Overall, it has been fun. But I am ready to return and claim God’s favor in the music industry. I am ready to start working for the glory of the Lord in this broken industry. Jesus, give me grace and favor in finding a job! All inadequacies and insecurities be gone in Jesus name! Coming back on the 10th! Woohoo!
Boarding now! :) Goodbye frandz
Lately, I have been experimenting with graphics & web design. It definitely has not been easy.. but it has been a lot of fun. It all started when my mom (president of the company I’ve been working part-time for) asked me to design a logo for the company to put on letterheads, business cards, etc.
SO, I bought a tablet (thinking it would be a great excuse to finally get one), and I have been working on…. my website. [insert snicker here]
I want to give a sneak peek at what I’ve been working on! Enjoy, & tips/references are welcome!
P.S. This is Day 2 of learning. Go easy on me!
As of late, I have been applying to many many jobs through Craigslist, Berklee job forums, NBC, Monster, etc., and I have not heard back from a single one of them. It’s been hard to see God’s presence in the midst of all this because I was so confident in getting a job. Not that I’m going to give up, but I need to rely on the Lord’s favor and timing in all this.
To fill up my time though, I have turned to healthier alternatives! I am an official member of 24 hour fitness, and I am on my 2nd consecutive day of working out. It feels SO good to be back on track, but this just means I need to eat right because I don’t have any energy at the end of the day w/o vitamins/protein. It shall be fun doing this whilst I wait for job interviews.
I also got a new car! I’m sure you’ve heard already through Instagram or Facebook, but I bought a grey Honda Civic 2012 EX exactly a week ago, and it has been great. It has almost 200 miles already (heh heh. I was too excited to drive everyone everywhere). I will let you come in my car if you are a clean person. hehe.
I have no plans to go back to San Diego anytime soon, but maybe the right opportunity will present itself, and I will make a short appearance. paha. I’m sure SD misses me. :D
School has been good—getting lazier, but trying to make the most of it. I’m glad I’m going to be a part time student starting late September. Whew!
Our new apt mate Pauline has finally arrived, and we are spending tons of time together. I am glad I have some of my closest friends with me in this new journey. Don’t know what I would do without them!
Last note: I really really miss carpet. Hardwood floors do not compare to carpet.
Raw talent. Right here. Bluey Robinson. SO GOOD.
