11 Things About Me

  1. I am Canadian.  Born and raised.
  2. My background is (South) Korean.  My parents immigrated to Canada before I was born.
  3. I have a lovely boyfriend, and we've been together for almost 3 years now <3.
  4. I work a normal grown-up 9-5 as a Marketing Coordinator.
  5. I haven't gotten a haircut in a year! (gross!)
  6. I STILL do not have my drivers license.  Sad face. =(
  7. I love spicy food.
  8. I can play the guitar & ukelele =).
  9. I used to work as an "extra" (background actor) in movies & TV shows filmed in Canada.  Maybe you can spot me in Scott Pilgrim, Camp Rock 2, Silent Hill 3, Resident Evil 4, Degrassi, Being Erica....or the upcoming Cobu 3D.  Haha.
  10. My eyes are not symmetrical.  I find it terribly annoying, but what can ya do?
  11. I taught English for a year in South Korea, and it was an amazing experience.

My Questions from FloBirdie...

What is a weird habit of yours?
Taking napkins.  Every coffee shop/fastfood joint I go to...I take a gigantic stack of napkins when I leave.  My purse is full of napkins. Brown ones.  White ones.  McDonalds.  Starbucks.  My goodness.  Thank me when your nose is dripping and I've got one!

Who is your celebrity crush?
Is it weird if mines a girl?  I have a total girl crush on Emma Stone.  The girl is all the way beautiful and talented!  Remember her small role in Superbad?  So happy for her Hollywood success!

What do you get out of blogging?
A sense of community and appreciation.  I love that I can share something that I love with the world, and get a response.  Though my blog is small, what little traffic I get really means a lot to me. 

What is your dream job?
My dream job would be either professionally blogging full-time, or being a television host for some sort of fashion television (Jeanne Beker?  Alexa Chung?).  I never went to school for fashion, nor have I been trained in broadcast, but it just looks like a lot of fun and I'd love to try it!

What is a positive quote that you like?
"The most important thing is to enjoy your life -- be happy -- it's all that matters."  -- Audrey Hepburn

What was your dream last night?
I can't remember!

How old are you?
I'm not sure if I've ever answered this question on my blog.  I am 25.

Favourite food?
Sandwich.  Looooove a good sandwich.

Where do you shop the most?
Online.  And lately, gojane.com

Who inspires you?
Wendy Nguyen of Wendy's Lookbook.  The girl is a true inspiration. 

Tell me something interesting?
I edited my first video for Youtube last night!  Watch out for it!!
