Band of Bloggers - Vol. 2/Feb. 2016


Welcome to the month of February! Congratulations, you survived the start of the New Year! If this is your first month joining us, Band of Bloggers is a revamped version of the Order of the Odor, where we do a monthly chat about all matters of waxy things and life. We hope you join us in the conversations!


This month's question is: Now that we have settled into the new year of 2016, we wanted to find out what are your goals for this year (life, blog, work, travel etc)?

Oh man, so many goals, so little time. In life I just want to move forward, put simply. I realized in 2015 that I was carrying a lot of baggage from my past and it still affects certain things I do and the way I perceive the world, and not always in a positive manner. Moving forward includes pushing myself to go out more and shut down that hermit-like side of me that I've been fostering since Michael joined up. It includes continuing to eat right and work towards more physical activity to keep my energy levels up and my mood more stable. It includes continuing to date Michael and never growing complacent in our marriage. It includes seeing and doing everything I can in Korea with the time that we have, and learning to splurge a little more if it means making an amazing memory.

For blogging, I just want to be more consistent. I kept up some fairly consistent blogging for two or three months in 2015, but kind of fell off the bandwagon for a good chunk of the year. I'm hoping that this year I not only keep myself more active in the blogging world but keep track of more stuff in my life to share with you guys, whether it be nail art or wax or the life of a foreigner in Korea. I'm determined to keep blogging about Korea so I have something concrete to look back on when our time here is over.

  1. Blogging is a must. =D I'm curious about the holidays in Korea, like which ones we're familiar are celebrated there, and which ones are big there that we've never heard of here.

    1. I know Christmas isn't as big of a deal. It's a more religious holiday here than what it has become in the States. I was upset about this. Not many holiday lights/decorations to look at!
      I know the Lunar New Year is a bigger deal here than it is in the States. The entire city pretty much shuts down for a couple days! Besides that I've not learned of any other holidays. I'm sure I will as time goes on, though.
      Blogging is so fun I can't imagine giving it up again. There's some sort of blogging fire in my belly that I can't put out.

    1. Thank you for the well wishes! I don't think I could stop blogging about life in Korea even if I wanted to. It's too fun and I'm already enjoying being able to look back and see how much I've already done here.
