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! :)

my essay . . .I wrote about my mommie~


제목: 우리 엄마
제가 살아오는 동안 우리 엄마는 저한테 많은 가르침을 주셨어요 중에 하나만 예를 들어볼게요저는 엄마랑 ‘dollar tree’ 라는 상점에 일이 있습니다. 아무것도 모르고 거기에 있는 선글라스를 끼고 나왔어요엄마랑 차를 타고 같이 집에 가던 엄마는 제가 사지도 않은 선글라스를 끼고 있는 것을 발견했지요그걸 보신 바로 차를 돌려 다시 상점에 가셨어요.  1 달러를 지불하기 위해서였어죠그런 엄마의 행동이 저한텐 뜻깊은 가르침으로 지금도  남아있어요

우리 엄마는 저를 너무나노 사랑해 주셨어요. 예를 들면 사실 저는 년간 불량스런 행동도 많이 적이 있었어요. 우리 엄마도 사실을 물론 아셨죠하지만 저를 바로잡아주기 위해 언제나 노력하셨어요무조건 혼내기보다는 항상 함께 고쳐나가자는 식으로 말씀하셨죠그런 엄마가 있었기에 저는 많은 좋은 습관들을 극복할 있었답니다

올해 12 14일에 저는 미국에 돌아가요 한국에 있는 동안 엄마의 고마움과 소중함을 더욱 느낄 있었어요돌아가면 동안 표현하지 못했던 저의 마음을 보여드리고 싶어요


After today’s class on the way out I stopped one of my Chinese classmates and asked her a question. I asked how I could write I Love You in Chinese. She began to show me and then from there she explained more stuff about each character. And from that phrase to the next, she wrote and spoke....and I wrote and repeated. At this time I felt like I was back in 10th grade again learning Korean from Jennifer Bang. It was so cool, because this Chinese girl taught me just like Jennifer taught Korean. So who knows, maybe in a few years I might be in China starting all over again. Whatever is supposed to happen will happen, I just thank God for guidance and wisdom for my future.

What I have learned by being here and sharing time with Koreans, Chinese, and Japanese people, is that I have a strong desire to study Asian history. When I was in America this past year, my longing was and still is for American history. Now that I have a lot of Asian friends and shared interesting history stories, now I think might be a part of my future study. I can’t too see what I can accomplish and learn in the future, I get so excited about all that I can learn and experience. Well that’s basically what this post is about, starting to find out what I want to do and figuring out what I’m good at. Yep….thanks for reading again~
 love you all
