"… but I should always have my tea," said Fyodor Dostoyevsky in Notes from Underground. A cup of chai latte and a super buttery lemon scone was all I needed for some me-time this afternoon.

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.

My recent obsession. I love her voice. And her cover of this song is just so lovely.

Take a trip down the memory lane. :)

“Lebensalter und Wahrheit. - Junge Leute lieben das Interessante und Absonderliche, gleichgültig wie wahr oder falsch es ist. Reifere Geister lieben Das an der Wahrheit, was an ihr interessant und absonderlich ist. Ausgereifte Köpfe endlich lieben die Wahrheit auch in Dem, wo sie schlicht und einfältig erscheint und dem gewöhnlichen Menschen Langeweile macht, weil sie gemerkt haben, dass die Wahrheit das Höchste an Geist, was sie besitzt, mit der Miene der Einfalt zu sagen pflegt.”

"Age and truth. - Young people love what is interesting and odd, no matter how true or false it is. More mature minds love what is interesting and odd about truth. Fully mature intellects, finally, love truth, even when it appears plain and simple, boring to the ordinary person; for they have noticed that truth tends to reveal its highest wisdom in the guise of simplicity.”

In Human, All to Human by Friedrich Nietzsche
