Un-Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is coming up faster than you can imagine.  In roughly 2 weeks, lovers everywhere will be sharing smooches and chocolates.  Don’t have a valentine for this year’s Valentines Day?  It’s okay, there are plenty of us out there as well.  So, I’ve decided to compile a list of things to do this Valentine’s Day for all those singles out there.  Just because we’re single doesn’t mean we can’t have fun on this day, right? 😉

Here we go:


Get with some of your single girlfriends (or boyfriends if you’re a guy) and celebrate your independence!  Make some food, decorate it, have fun, eat, and do some girl (or guy) talk.  Sweets are always nice, so I suggest baking some cookies, cream puffs, and cupcakes.  Oh!  And if you gals (or guys) want nice meals, perhaps a Giada de Laurentiis book might help.  Her recipes are always delicious and mouth-watering.  When the food is ready, turn up the music and have some good ol’ girl (or guy)time.


Maybe you have a friend or sibling who’s going out for a romantic night with their significant other.  And they need someone to babysit.  I say you go for it and have a good time with the child (ren)!  Believe it or not, kids are fun beings and they will definitely entertain you.  It also gives you a chance to feel like a free-spirited child again!  haha~ You and the kid (s) can make crafts, watch T.V., play a game, etc.  If you [hate] kids, this might not be a good option.


Maybe this is a good time for you to think about life and what you want.  Sit with a warm cup of tea or coffee and relax while doing some thinking.  Plan out what you want to do with your life and what you are looking for in a relationship.  I mean, you’ll have to do this sometime or another.


Go shopping!  Treat yourself to some goods.  Maybe gather some girlfriends (or guy friends) and go get a new wardrobe.  Find a new style for you and try a new look.  Kohls, Kmart, and Walmart are very affordable.  But if you’re really feeling up for some high-style shopping, Banana Republic, Commes de Garcon, Lacoste, and Burberry are nice picks for starters.  Or choose a store (or stores) to your liking.


Pamper yourself!  Whether it’s a massage or a day at the spa, get pampered!  I haven’t even had the fortune to try one of these yet (I think I’m also too young).  But if I could, I would love to spend the day at the spa.  All I know is that they rub a variety of scented oils on you and slather you with a bunch of other stuff.  But also imagine the hot springs?  Oh-la-la~ Take your mind off of everything and get treated with love.

Okay, so those are my top 5 ideas for un-valentining February 14th.  Maybe you’ll take my suggestions, maybe you won’t.  Either way, I hope you enjoy your February 14th, it’s a day of love, not just for couples, but also for yourself.

With the conclusion of my Physics exam on Tuesday, Summer 2010 began.


The first half of my summer will officially begin this coming Monday.

For the first time in my life, I will have my very first job as a camp counselor.

The exciting part is meeting the kids and being able to interact with new people.

I need  a change in environment and this job is offering me this opportunity.

Where nothing exists but laughter and fun, I will be able to let myself go for 6 weeks.

Seems like everyone already has formed their own cliche, but I never expected any less.

I’ll just do my own thing and time will fly by.

Will the kids like me?  Am I doing the best that I can?  Have I become someone they can trust?

We’ll just have to find out Monday…


My last day at the camp will lead me right into South Korea.

How exciting it is to escape… somewhere far, far away.

Exotic excursions on foreign soil… digging depths into the past.

The people I am sick of being around, out of my sight.

Making new memories, friends.

What lies in Seoul, the Paris of South Korea?

Is something awaiting me there?


Indeed… summer has arrived.

Yesterday was a really good day for me!  I was so excited that I did not even have a chance to blog on here about the wonderful news I was hit with…


Woo!  Haha I was typing up something and had to go on google for a second.  And then… in my inbox (which shows up on my iGoogle homepage), I saw an email from the program I applied to.  I opened it… and I WAS ACCEPTED! heheheh I made it to being one of the 100 finalists!  Yay!  Now I’m officially going to Seoul for the first time in my life!  This is going to be so so exciting!  I am so happy that I’ve been blessed with this opportunity!  Thank you God!  🙂

Omgzzz now for all the prep work… lol I’m so happy that I can’t wipe the goofy smile off my face… I really must look like a fool when I walk out of the house.

Lalala~ I can’t wait for this experience to live the Korean culture, breathe the Korean air.  I really need to get my excitement out so that I can make room for organization and rational thinking in my brain.

Oh, how fun this will be!  (As you can see, I’m still not quite over this initial shock that they… accepted me.)  I’m definitely going to take many pictures and share my adventures on here as well as my tumblr site.  Finally, my travel category will be able to expand!  kekeke… Oi, I’m so excited!

So, please subscribe if you want to experience Korea with me this summer!  All you have to do is find the little subscribe button on the sidebar and add your email to keep yourself updated!  There will be lots of cool stuff, GUARANTEED. 😀  I usually tend to be clumsy, so maybe that’ll keep everything comical if you like funny stuff. 😦

And one last thing.  I’d like to make it a point that if I am truly blessed, as I believe I am right now, I will meet Kyuhyun… up-close…  *melts into a little puddle*
