wow, i totally just had deja vu.
i'm moving out of my place in Kangnam today, and going to my aunt's house in Hongdae. i'm pretty sad to leave what's been my home for the past 2 months. living here has been a great experience, hopefully something i will never forget.

so i move into my aunt's house today, leave for thailand on wednesday, and then come back on monday. then on the wednesday after i come back from phuket, i leave for tokyo and then come back on that saturday. i then leave back for nyc on the following day, march 11th.

the past week has been a blast because one of my best friends from home came to visit me in korea. we did so much and had a great time.

oh and my fucking ibook seems to be broken. i'm so fucking pissed. one moment i'm uploading pictures and videos from my camera, and the next thing i know my ibook shuts off and i havent been able to turn it on since. and plus my ipod screen is cracked so i can't see a damn thing.

i think that God or whoever is telling me to stop relying on technology so much. my ibook and ipod are two things i can not live without, i absolutely use them everyday. but now i can't really use either fully, and am starting to adapt without them. my main concern is about my laptop, and the possibility that i might lose all the pictures i took in korea. everything else is backed up at home so it's okay, but damn it i want my korea pictures!

don't you hate it when you lose something, and there's just no reasonable explanantion as to how you lost that item?

and then you start looking for it in the craziest places, such as outside your place or inside your fridge?

damn it i hate losing shit, especially books. i lost a book and am honestly perturbed as to where it could be.

my ongoing love-hate thing with Haruki Murakami is definitely back at ON.

less is more.

sometimes i read some entries of mine and wonder if i was drunk or watching oprah when writing them, because they make absolutely no sense, are extremely superflous, and seem to just be bad writing overall. can i really make it in life as a writer?

who would trust me to ever edit anything, let alone an issue of highlights magazine?

since i fucking hate all my entries, i will keep this one nice and terse.

going to thailand on feb 25- march 3. this will be my first time in life ever going to somewhere tropical, i can finally get a tan.

going to japan on march 4- march 10. i am so fucking god damn motherfucking exciting.

i arrived to seoul on Dec 26, 2006. today it is february 8, 2007 and it has not rained a single day since i've been here.

a few days ago, my guy cousin from nyc says after 23 years that he finally notices i have a sort of "twang" to the way i talk. my response, "oh ghee i've never heard that in my life!"

buying thoughtful gifts for friends is hard.

i'm at my aunt's house in hongdae, sleeping over because it's her birthday. i went to lotte department store today and bought her 2 bottles of really good wine, hoping she would enjoy them. my cousin told me my aunt couldn't drink, but i didn't really think it was as bad as it is.

today after dinner we had a few drinks in honor of her, and she literally had 1/2 a shot glass of beer and said she was drunk. HAHAHAHAHA. and then she said once in her life she took 3 shots of soju because she was at a wedding and went bananas from it, like off her rockers madwoman drunk. HAHAHAHAH. i know it's mean but i find it all so endearing. i love my aunt, she's funny.

oh and during our drinking session, at times it was really awkwardly silent and i really hate that. during one of our quiet spells, the most randomest thing happened. all of a sudden we hear the most awful and painful cries from outside the window of cats. obviously they were having sex, because... well that inhuman sound is known as the screeches cats make when they're mating. i don't know, i feel like it's just a known thing, no?

oh man i wanted to laugh so bad but i don't know if my relatives don't know what the sound is, or they just didn't think it was funny but none of them paid it any mind. i thought it was hilarious, and kept my eyes on the floor from busting out in laughter.
