• My thoughts on the 2018 Seoul Private Kindergarten CRAZINESS

    Over the past few weeks, the Ministry of Education in Korea announced the corruption of private kindergartens located in the major cities of Korea. They intentionally (and I say this “intentionally” part with emphasis because I personally do believe that they are doing this for a reason and a purpose) released a list of private kindergartens in Seoul and other major cities of Korea that stated violations and false use

  • Three

    It’s not easy being a parent to three [totally different] kids. It’s not easy being a parent. Period. Whether you have one or three or five or ten, just being a parent to any living animal is not easy. Even having a dog is hard. I always wanted to be a good mom. I wanted to be the active, knowledgeable mom that the kids could come to at any time,

  • Practice does make PERFECT

    I love design. I love designing things and working with people who have the skills and passion for design. I don’t like making logos and sitting in front of a computer with Illustrator open, but I love the whole DESIGN, CREATING and making something out of nothing process. Mock up desktop image designed by Yeven_popov I never really wanted to take part in the design and actual “making part” of my

YAY for me cause I LOVE em! [I don’t have a fireplace to sit in

  • The importance of “PRESENTATION”

    There’s always room for “improvements” when it comes to presenting your work to a client. I have NEVER given a client a design or mockup on just plain white paper. There’s a reason for that and it’s the most simple and obvious reason. HUMANS ARE VISUAL ANIMALS. We need to SEE what it looks like when it’s displayed on an actual SCREEN, BOOK or CARD to get a glimpse of

  • Mamma Mia 2

    I didn’t want to see it at first. I was one of those movies that I knew I was going to cry watching. I knew it was going to make me miss my friends back home and I knew I was going to feel all lonely and sad afterwards. I also knew that I was going to want to dance and sing after watching it. And sure enough, that’s exactly

  • Seol i Slime 셜이슬라임

    2019 March UPDATE: Seol i Slime is now closed. So last Friday I was lucky enough to participate and attend the opening of a SLIME cafe. This SLIME CAFE thing is so BIG in Korea right now. Even adults go in and play with slime for an hour. The concept of the CAFE is that you make your own slime, add the desired parts and sprinkles. Then play with it

  • After Thanksgiving, Before Christmas

    Designed by Valeria_aksakova Okay, so my mom never did the whole Thanksgiving dinner back at home. We always had people over, but it was more like a buffet of Korean food and a turkey made by someone else. All the other food would be done by mom but the turkey was always brought by someone else. So when it comes to Thanksgiving, I never actually miss my moms’ turkey, I
