• Getting over the Type-B Influenza

    Josh caught the type-B influenza last week. I honestly think he caught it playing at the playground on Thursday. He started showing signs of a fever on Friday and that’s when I knew he was gonna be REALLY sick. On Friday afternoon and during the evening his fever started rising and it literally went up to 39.5 degrees Celsius and I immediately knew we were going to make a trip

  • FAMILY

    I don’t know how to put it into words. I always dreamed of all of us getting together and spending time together and it really happened. Except for John (my younger brother). I always envied those families who would get together for events and have big BBQ’s in the backyard.

  • Crazy week gone by

    This past week was so crazy I can’t even organize my thoughts to explain what happened. It was Josh’s second week of school, it was the week with Andrea’s dental check-up and it was also the week my lectures at a community center in our neighborhood started.

  • Fitting in

I was in grade 1 at the time and I didn’t speak a word of English. I went to school every day thinking “I hope we move again”, “I really don’t want to go to school”. I hated

  • Our school break almost at its end

    In Korea, the new semester starts in March. Right now it’s spring break for most kids. Which means, they’ll be going into the next grade after this break. So for Josh, he’ll be going into grade one next Monday. We really haven’t prepared anything yet. I think we’re just more relaxed and trying to act like nothing really concerns us. Well, we’re all trying to act like it… Not sure

  • Backup EVERYTHING

    To have all of your pictures and videos disappear in one day can seriously do harm to your mental health. Well, that’s what happened to me last week. I lost everything. Literally EVERYTHING. The backup drive that I had to backup this computer and all of my files just lost it and went poof. I was able to take it to professionals and get most of it restored. Except for
