Chiang Mai + Phuket

Marriage or Nah?, Episode 5, Black and Abroad

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage? Not necessarily! In this episode I build off of my last episode, (checkout episode 4 — Moving in with my boyfriend), and share the societal and even cultural norms that we live under in things like relationships and starting a family. When …

Visiting home after a year abroad…

The Chuseok holiday (Korean Thanksgiving) this year gave me about 12 days off from work so I took the time to go back to North America. To say it was so nice being home is an understatement. It really didn't hit me until I got back, and was surrounded by family and friends, how much …

Updates, let’s catch up…

Hello old friend, It has been a little while, again, since we spoke. If you haven't already noticed, I take a hiatus, from my blog/social media, sometimes. Usually, it's because there is something going on in my life, that I'm figuring out, and other times it's because I'm experiencing a mental blockage and, simply, can't …

10 months loc’d, this is my journey …

When i decided to start my loc journey I never could have anticipated the confidence and freedom it would bring. I think at first I was mostly focused on just getting past the dreaded "ugly stage" where it's hard to say what's going on, on your head. Lol! I'm happy to say, the "ugly stage" …

Emancipate yourself so you may grow. 

I was raised in a large family. Mom, dad, four brothers and two sisters. I'm the second youngest, out of all my siblings, but the youngest girl. I've noticed that I sometimes struggle to maintain a balance between living for my family and living for myself. The norm for me has been to allow my family's …

Bali was beautiful and somewhat overrated.

As expected, Bali was beautiful. I had a few days off the first week of May, also known as golden week here in Korea, so I broke the bank back in February purchasing my plane ticket and accommodations. Flights from Korea, at that time, were much more expensive because of the holiday. I was in Bali …

Taking a trip doesn’t always have to involve a flight… Weekend in Seoul

This trip to Seoul couldn't have come at a better time. It's been about 4 months since my last trip, outside of Korea (see Hong Kong + Day 1 in Joburg), so visiting Seoul felt a little like I'd left Korea. Exactly what I needed. Sometimes all it takes is a change of scenery and …

Cape Town + Robben Island – Final pics

What I liked the most about Cape Town was the African art, the Congolese live music, being by the water; as well as, the cool African people I met in Obz. What I disliked was the predominant European influences that had me really confused as to where I was sometimes. If I were to try …
