So a lot of you have asked me to do a blog while I'm in Korea. Even though I'm html and blog challenged, I thought I still might try. Throughout my time in Korea (south of course) i will update each day on here, showing you where I went, what I did and ate. I'm sure some of you probably are already assuming that my diet will consist of fast food and sweets. However, I'm not going to limit my experience to such foods I could easily find back in the states. Thank you all for the support and I hope that you all will stay tuned in! :)

Today i feel that i woke up to early, the heat has really affected me a lot. I feel sick to my stomach sometimes when i smell the food when the air in and outside the house is so hottt~ whew...i dont remember this feeling last year, or maybe i jus forgot. . later on today, around 1:20, we are going to take a bus that sends us all the way to the airport, which is 2 hrs awayy. Everything here take time to get to, especially if your walking, using the subways. . .and soo on ://

im hereeee~

heyy guys, im finally here in Korea. Jennifer and her mother picked me up from the airport. I got kind of scared because she was not at my gate when i arrived, all i could see were these surprised korean faces all staring me down. Sometimes the attention gets me, because its not like that back in the states. Everybody in Korea is Korean, and people in America are of all different ethnicities. I got used to the attention last year, im sure i will be able to do it again this year. Besides all the faces, ive been having sooo much fun already. Jennifers family and i went out to eat at the restaurant i ate at on my last day in Korea (last year). Her mom and dad, well they are my parents as well. I love them verrryyy much, they treat me like their own daughter. Today at the restaurant, they kept on saying how much i have grown and how beautiful i look. :)) awww, i know it though. Anyways, i am going to miss you (my family, friends, and Jacob)! i have to go soon, jennifer and i are goin to buy makeup and a special subway card. . . love you all~ please continue to read my posts, ENJOY,

next to last day in USA

So i'm really crushed. . .i sat down at around 11:16 to write out a post, and i was getting ready to confirm it. . . and stupid me, erased every single word :// i want to cry, but i wont. i just want to be able to remember everything. . i'll give it a try

So. . like i was saying-ish, today i (well my mother and i) finished all of my packing. There is tooo much to think about, i still have another list of stuff i have to get when im in Korea. For anybody planning to travel overseas, be prepared to plan and plan, especially ahead of time. Trust me, its worth it though. Last year when i traveled to Korea, i only stayed about 2 weeks. But i knew as soon as i got in the car and left the airport. . . i knew that i was going to come back and study or do something amazing! and guess what, im going back and i have plans to study at a beautiful school in Seoul named Yonsei University. right now. . I'm a little nervous to get started, but im sure everything will work out. Just remember to keep me in your prayers. . .for sure :) I love you all, 
and this post is just one of many soon to come. . . muahhh~
