Weekly Diary

3:41:00 AM

From the 3rd week of January to the 2nd week of February

There were many stuffs going on since the last time I shared my weekly diary.

First of all, I found my part time job @ Dunkin' Donuts.
Second, I made another bank account, this time with authentication certificate or something, which still sounds intimidating to me! (It was a must thing to get
cause I needed to have it to enter the government scholarship program)
Third, it was Seol-nal in Korea, a korean version of lunar new year celebration.
And a lot more going on...

So, here's another photo snippets kind of diary that I usually write once a month.

A very random shot of my left hand.
I don't remember the exact reason why this was on the corner of my phone.
Maybe I was proud of myself to finally put on some nail polish
even though it got messy after few days or
I was happy with that new golden minimal ring I got with my bestie!

This is one of my daily routine:
reading an article from Kinfolk magazine for at least three times a week.
I'm now running out of spare issues that I usually stock up on my bookshelf!
This is a quite urgent situation for me, and I'm definitely going out
this week just to get another amazing issue.

A heavy snowing day in Seoul.
There're many kinds of snowing day- a rainy snowing day, a snow-stormy snowing day,
snow you rarely see snowing day, horrible air pollution affected snowing day...

This snowing day was a very decent one, with no grayish puddles left on the streets.
It snowed so beautifully that I didn't mind those white flakes getting on my hair & coat.

This kind of weather is one of my favorite thing.
Pale sky, chilly air, and warm sweater!

Let's appreciate my sister here.
Sweeping off the snow with the broom that's taller than her.
She ended up pretending like a wizard flying on a broomstick.

In the evening, we all went to the Seoul square to see my little sisters ice skating.
It was freezing that none of us felt our feet anymore,
but I just looooove to see strangers ice skating!

The last Wednesday of every month is called 'A Day with Culture' in Korea.
Many places such as art museums, theaters, and concerts let people to enjoy
their exhibitions/shows with discounted offerings.

For that day, my sisters and I went to see Impressionists' masterpieces.
We couldn't stop chatting over and over again about all those colors & lights
from the legendary artists like Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Gauguin, etc.

I'm still in awe of Impressionism!

There was another dumpling making session before we celebrate Seol-nal.
Seol-nal is korean new year's day, which all koreans celebrate and wish
that year's luck to their families & friends.

Since it's one of the main holidays in Korea, people prepare a lot of things
for this time of the year. (Food, traditional costume called Hanbok, and a lot more)

We all gathered in the living room to pre-make our homemade dumplings
before the d-day comes. The best part of this was that we could taste test
some of the fresh dumplings right away!

This divine chocolate waffle.
I and my friend devoured all of this calories even though we had stomach full of sushi.

I'm obsessed with this movie!!!!!
All of you need to watch this (Our Times) if you read this.
This might be a cheesy movie to some people, but it totally got me
into feelings & made me want to visit Taiwan even more.

I can't tell the whole plot of this, but it's one of the movies that brings everyone
back to their high school life. (whether it was fabulous or not...)

It was finally Seol-nal.
For this year, we had straight 5 days off.
These days include all the cooking, cleaning, waking up early in the morning,
visiting & chatting with your family members, and blah blah

It may sounds quite tired & work overload. (and yes! it is)
However, getting together with all your family members to spend time with them,
watching everyone's favorite movies together, and being talkative up all night
with aunts & uncles are the best things to have.

For upcoming weeks, I'm gonna get even busier since I'll need to prepare myself
to start my college next month, complete all the documents & requirements
for scholarship, do part time job on the weekend,
and go on shopping to buy stuffs I planned to get for decades and centuries.

I can't wait to share all those bits on my next weekly diary!
What are your plans for this & upcoming weeks?

I am Korean but adopted, so I have only been back once but do plan on coming back soon to learn more about Korea, so I always love stumbling upon bloggers who are Korean or living in Korea as I feel like it gives me a taste of my culture. All of your photos of food also look delicious!

    I really like impressionism, especially those by Renoir, Manet, and Mary Cassatt. I'm not the biggest fan of Monet. They are nice but sometimes too much to look at haha
