life in technicolor

Seoul had definitely given me a new appreciation for taking walks.  You never know what's waiting just behind the corner or down the alley.  A new face, a new perspective, a new experience.  It's not always something glamorous or over the top.  Just little things you catch out of the corner of your eye.  Moments that slip by so fast, you get a tinge of excitement up your spine over the fact that you got to witness something so simple, yet amazing.  

Lately, I feel more and more convicted that "you have all the time in the world" does not apply to me anymore.  It definitely feels like this in college, but when you get out, you realize how fast time passes.  It's hard to believe that it's already been almost a year since I graduated.  It's almost been a year since I've been living in Seoul!  Yikes!  I don't know how much longer I'll have here.  Maybe 4 months, maybe another year.  But despite that, I just want to inhale as much of it as I can.  I keep catching myself dwelling on the uncertainty of my next step.  The fear of getting stuck is enough motivation to push me forward, but chasing your dreams, as enchanting as it may sound, is just as wearisome.  Never the less, I couldn't think of anywhere else I'd want to be in life.  Although living here has been short of hell in some instances, I seriously love it.  I've realized that in our 20's, our lives cascade all over the place.  Things change in an instant.  Tomorrow isn't promised to us.  We only have today.  Just gotta soak it up!             
Tunnel in Shinchon.  Cool graffiti.  

One God.

Down the rabbit hole.

I couldn't resist.  I had to contribute.  
Conversation with old Korean guy...
Old Korean Guy: You have to pay a fine, what are you doing?!
Us: Oh...
Old Korean Guy: Hey, what are you drawing?  Looks good.
Us: ? 

We ran away, but just after I snapped a photo of the half finished product.

Nothing out of the ordinary.  Just the Japanese girls taking an afternoon stroll.  Their sheep were close behind.

I wonder what they're thinking at this age.


"Just because my sweatshirt says hello DOES NOT mean you can say hello to me...creep." -Melissa Lim to creepy white dude on the corner of the street.


Even smelly standing water can be cool.

Just do it.

Go take a walk today, take your camera too! ^^
