1. Are you an amusement/theme park kind of person?
Not really… I like carnivals/fairs but I don’t care for roller coasters so I don’t want to waste a bunch of money at an expensive amusement park.

2. If yes, where have you gone? If no, what makes you dislike those kinds of places?
I have been to Disney World twice as a little kid, Carowinds and Dollywood many times, Six Flags once, and Lotte World in Seoul once. I have also been to Six Flags Hurricane Harbor and Dollywood’s Splash Country.









3. Do you like to go on roller coasters?

4. Does your answer to #3 directly correlate to how you are about life experiences?
Not at all… I think I’m pretty damn adventurous.

5. What was the last scary and/or risky thing you did?
Traveling around Asia by myself last summer was probably the last BIG thing… I had to take a lot of selfies! 😉

Throwback Thursday

Last April I went to the Jindo Sea Parting Festival while living in Korea. It was so cool! Jindo is the third largest island in Korea. Every year, a narrow land pass opens for about an hour between the main Jindo island and the smaller Modo island as a result of tidal activity. This event attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists and is known as the Mysterious Sea Road.

1. What is your favorite flower?
Hot pink gerbera daisies.

Two years ago I had an epic Valentine’s Day date while living in Seoul.

And I got my favorite gift ever, 아기 곰 (my teddy bear).

Not really but I liked giving and receiving Valentines at school and my mom always gave me a card and a present.

A job in a public library.

Nope, I am single and babysitting tomorrow! At least I’m earning some money.
