STTA: The truth about social media

I have a love/hate relationship with social media, particularly Instagram. I’ve been on and off of it in the past few months. There was even a time I was MIA on Instagram for 14 whole days *gasp*. Honestly, I didn’t miss it much-you know, the constant urge to check, the impulses to scroll and the consequent time suck. BUT I always return because the truth is…

STTA-Quarter Life reflections

I’m finally 25 after what seems like an eternity.  Here is a video of what I’ve learned so far and what continues to drive me moving forward. I’ve learned and grown so much in the short time since graduation and I can’t imagine what I’ll continue to discover in the year(s) ahead. Hope you liked the video! This video is dedicated to my rare specimen,…

What I want for my birthday year (yay 25)!

25 is that age where you’re expected to have a quarter life crisis. I want it to be my best year yet. Every year as I get older I’m always thinking of what I can do better and I feel that THIS year will truly be the year when I can make things happen (if I’m consistent and put in the effort of course). Here is…

My answers to 40 deep questions

For the past few years I’ve been reading the self help blog Marc and Angel. Their newsletters and articles have really helped me through dark times and forced me to think about things that have ultimately shaped my value system and mindset. Whenever I meet someone who thinks they know a lot about themselves, or I reach a level of deep conversation with someone, I like to ask…

Why long distance (relationships) are worth it

I’m in the first serious, healthy relationship of my whole existence, and it’s long distance. I never thought I’d be that person. In fact, I used to be the kind of person who didn’t “believe” in long distance relationships. Based off of what I heard, it didn’t seem like there was enough face-time or quality time spent between the two people to make it “real.”…

I’m on Buzzfeed!

For those of you who don’t know, I’m actually Korean-American….and believe it or not, Korean was actually my first language. Hard to believe considering how current day, I can barely hold a conversation with my family (or strangers) without starting to fumble or using English mid sentence. I was recently asked a few questions about what it’s like to be Korean-American, but not be able to…

Lost and Lonely (NY vs LA)

It’s officially been 8 months since I made the move to LA. Coming from the East coast, I’m inclined to make comparisons. When I first came here, being in a new environment made me feel lost and lonely at times.  It was strange though- the lost and lonely I felt here in LA was different than the lost and lonely I felt in New York. The feeling…

When Words are a reflection of Them

“Wow, that’s really brave of you.” “Good luck with that….It probably won’t work.” “Why….” “That’s really awesome. I’m really excited for you.” “LA is the worst.” *silence* I’ve gotten the whole spectrum of reactions when I told people I was going to move to Los Angeles. If I didn’t know any better I would’ve let what others thought or said get to me. I’ll admit, some…

STTA: Loving someone

Loving someone is really difficult and really scary. But I’m doing it and I’m learning so much (blogpost on what my rare specimen teaches me here) This is basically what it felt like getting into a relationship with him: I’m getting better at it with time. He’s helping me to trust more. You might have been disappointed, you might have been betrayed, you might have been…

Sit and Sig

Every two weeks on an early weekend morning, I get together with two individuals at one of the many Coffee Bean and Tea locations around Los Angeles to talk about business and life. It’s kind of weird how it happened. Someone I had met 3 years ago in New York, saw the post I wrote about me moving out to LA, and reached out to me saying…
