The Lost Summer

Okay, I think I have about five more days left on my Final Cut Pro Trial…and last but not least, here’s the rest of the (useable) footage I have from this past summer when I was volunteering in Busan. It was actually really fun editing this one. I had forgotten about some of the things I had done with and time spent with the friends I made while in PNU, as well as a not so happy reminder that I miss my best friend back home a lot more than I thought. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy. But, I […]

Weekend in Seoul, Summer 2017

Can you tell that my Final Cut Pro trial is coming to an end? Maybe? But, moving on… remember when I first got to Korea back at the end of June and was in Seoul for a little while, doing everything touristy and walking over twenty thousand steps a day? Yes, I said back in June. Basically, that first week was so hectic that I took all the footage, moved the files to my backup drive and never looked back. Yesterday I finally went through that footage, and let me tell you, it was pretty brutal. I don’t want to […]

Christmas in Kyoto

Apologies that it took a couple more days than originally planned to get this uploaded; my only excuse right now is the fact that I’m back at work so I’m lacking a bit in extra time to finish these things. Either way, here you guys go – part 2 of my Kyoto trip. I’m currently editing photos and trying to get the rest of what was saved off my camera posted, so bear with me (once again). xoxo

Christmas Eve in Kyoto

I’m back home in Korea, a fact that is, well, slightly depressing because being on holiday is significantly better than being at work…but… I’m feeling refreshed, a little bit like I’m floating, and still full from New Years, crazy enough. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday – and is remaining optimistic about the start of a new year! As 2017 came to a ridiculously fast, but inevitable, and frankly highly anticipated end (not that 2017 was a particularly awful year, but I like the idea of a “new” start too), 2018 began with a strangely motivated Monica, who, whilst […]

My Last Saturday in Busan

The end is near everyone! This past weekend was my last weekend in Busan. I leave bright and early on a cozy 7am flight to Jeju Island Saturday morning… so in a very stereotypical girls day fashion, Caleigh and I spent the day shopping, eating, walking, and doing face masks to close because we will be departing our separate ways (too) soon. I’m churning through footage still from the Skywalk, hiking, Gamcheon Culture Village, the Trickeye Museum, and the Shinsegae (as well as all the footage I still have yet to edit from Seoul – oops), but I promise that I have it, […]

Busan, Week 1

I’ve only been in Busan for about ten days now, but it feels like I’ve been here for much longer. I don’t know whether it’s the fact that I spend what feels like an eternity participating in small talk at an English cafe for four hours a day, six days a week, or if it’s because I’ve somehow managed to adjust (probably not). Can I complain though? They say going abroad gives you the opportunity to learn from the locals, and what’s a better way to do so than being sat at a table for three ninety minute shifts Monday […]
