Monterey Date with the Wees

I went to Monterey with my aunt and cousins last Friday. It was a beautiful day with no overcast, which was such a treat! Weather in Monterey is such a hit-or-miss, so I really appreciated the sunny, breezy weather.
We ate lunch in the aquarium by this huge window that looked out to the bay. We saw harper seals sunbathing on the rocks and sea otters napping on the surface all wrapped up in kelp. The food = bomb. If you’re ever going on a date to Monterey Aquarium, eat there! Monterey Date with the Wees

“I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything.”
— F. Scott Fitzgerald, about his wife Zelda in a letter to a friend
“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”

I recently stumbled upon this Korean calligrapher’s blog and noticed that she’s been taking submissions from people to write their one-line journal entries. So, I sent her a line and… Tada

Isn’t it so pretty? I love it! It’s amazing how the way you write can add so much personality to what you write.

Outside Lands 2014

08.08.2014 - 08.10.2014
Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA

I went up to San Francisco last weekend to attend my very first music festival ever - OUTSIDE LANDS! I’ve been looking forward to this event for so long and it was definitely well worth the anticipation! It’s kind of funny to look back at the time when I bought my tickets because back in March, I assumed I’d be working by now. And I worried that I wouldn’t be able to take Friday off… (This is why worrying about anything is never worth the time.) 

Anyways, my friends and I had a blast! Some highlights from this weekend include:

- Seeing so many amazing artists perform live. (Personal favorites were Disclosure, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Flume, & Tiësto. Kanye was a huge disappointment though. That man talked way too much… We wanna hear you perform, sir! We don’t care how many shows you’ve been to with Kim since you’ve been married!)
- Running into old friends I haven’t seen in ages. Ages as in since high school graduation! 
- Being carried on the shoulders of a random tall guy who was blocking my view during the Disclosure set. Whoever you were, thank you! It was amazing to actually see the stage over all those people! Now I know never to turn down people who offer to carry me on their shoulders.
- Eating good food nonstop. NONSTOP!
- Not remembering a big chunk of Saturday… (But having pictures and videos to prove that I actually ate the 4505 burger and saw the Death Cab for Cutie show.)
- Staying at Kevin’s parents’ beautiful condo that overlooked fidi’s high rises and the San Francisco bay. Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. Yu!
- Laughing, dancing, and just having a good time with friends. :) 

Over the weekend, I was reminded once again of how you really don’t need a lot to have a good life. All you really need is good music, good food, and good company.

서울에서 돌아온지 벌써 6개월이나 됬다. 그동안 겨울이 지나고, 봄도 왔다가고, 이젠 한창 여름. 그새 하루가 길어지고 햇빛도 강해졌지만 나는 아직 백수라는거. OTL
하지만 이상하게 지금 이 순간이 참 좋다. 정말 유치원 입학하고 나서 이렇게 오랫동안 여가를 즐겨보는건 처음이니까. 학업이나 일 걱정 없이 마음편히 아침에 일어나고 저녁에 잠드는거. 얼마나 오랫동안 바래왔던 생활인지… 스모그 없이 파란 하늘만 봐도 너무 좋고 감사하다. 일은 때가 되면 찾게되리라 굳게 믿고, 오늘은 그냥 즐기련다!  July Sky

잠이 오지 않는 밤
오늘 같은 밤엔 생각이 많아진다.

왜 하기 싫은 것들은 분명한데
하고 싶은 것들은 애매할까?

왜 원하지 않는 것들은 잘만 보이는데
원하는 것들은 잘 보이지 않을까?

싱숭생숭. 들쑥날쑥.
밍밍. 답답.
그냥 그러네.
