November 2019

This month was hectic and tiring. My calendar has never looked so crowded and I feel like I’m always out and about physically and mentally. So many things were happening and it’s hard to process what’s really happening around me. Highlights Went to the States for the first time! Fell on my knee and earned

Schaumburg, IL

The event ended in the afternoon so we had a couple of hours to explore the city. I decided to visit Woodfield Mall, which is the biggest premium outlet in the area (apparently). My newly made Korean friend decided to join me since she had to do some shopping as well. We took the free

Chicago, IL

I was in Chicago (to be exact, Schaumburg) for a week from 29th of October to the 4th of November to attend the Global Leadership Summit held by Beta Gamma Sigma. Obviously, the event wasn’t the highlight of the whole trip. It was more about the places I visited and the new friends I made,

June 2019 in a nutshell

Life June was fun yet extremely exhausting. I got to go to Osaka for holidays, but I also had to prepare for internship applications as well as keep up with my lessons. I still haven’t gotten any updates from my internship employer. I do wish I got the job but at the same time I’m

Splurging on Muji products

I can’t believe I did it … but I kinda went crazy and splurged on Muji because they had a 20% sale for almost all items. Apparently, the only branch in this small city is going for renovation, which is why Muji is selling off all of their products with huge discounts. I actually went
