About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Take it easy, and enjoy humor especially about yourself :D / Draw a map in my mind.

ABOUT ME

I am a student from South Korea. I studied English Education in South Korea and currently study English Literature in England.

When I was young, I was imaginative and wrote several short stories. I still keep story notebooks home. Reading books and writing stories has been my great pleasure. Now I do not write a short story but still love to depict life in my own language.

Traveling on my own and meeting new people from different culture/life style are amazingly helpful to widen my view. Thanks to travel, I try not to be too much serious for everything:D! Therefore definitely love to travel with as few people as possible to meet new people and experience more.

I love to chat about and experience something I have never tried before. Also, I am proud of myself since I adjust myself in a totally new context quite well. I rarely complain about difficulties from cultural differences since I believe I am not qualified to judge other cultures before I actually experience or understand them. Apparently, learning new culture is simply fun and excited.

PHILOSOPHY

- Often, it is better to think something is 'different' than 'wrong'.
