Contemplating Changes

Changes are a happening all the time. Some changes are expected, some are not. Some changes are good, some are not. We all encounter changes, and we can either make the best or the worst of it. Personally, I like things to be routine as a whole. Changes can provoke me negatively, especially when they are unexpected. However, give me time to think about a potential change, then I can accept them better. Just in the past couple of weeks, I’ve been told about some changes that will occur in the future. Some of these changes are ones I’ve initiated and planned for myself; others are changes I have no choice but to accept and take them as they come.

The past two months have been full of so many interesting things, but most of them were pretty minor, so I decided to wait until I had more materials to share. I picked out the best happenings and compiled it into this Recent Realities post. It’s amazing how much has happened to me in a span of two months. Hope you will enjoy reading some of my unique experiences :)

Aigoo Adventures: 4CC 2017

Aigoo Adventures

When I was 13, I remember watching Tara Lipinski (USA) at the 1998 Winter Olympics. She caught my attention because we shared the same name. The actual sport caught my attention, too — the spins, jumps, costumes, music, elegance — they captivated me. After, my interest in figure skating wavered on and off, but in 2009, my interest in the sport grew. I watched the Four Continents Figure Skating Championship (4CC for short), and I became a regular follower of the men’s singles and ladies’ singles events. This interest led me to go on a day trip to the 2017 4CC event in Gangneung, South Korea.

It’s been a while since I’ve last typed a Recent Realities post. I hadn’t written for this column since October — whoops! Here is a new post filled with some of my Seoul adventures from last month, including me trying some new food items. There is a new thing I am looking forward to in February, but I guess I should finish January first, haha! Speaking of January, I also realised that this is a pretty good month in terms of having a lot of days off. Oh, and Amazon Rewards Visa has become fabulous!

Aigoo Adventures: Sokcho 2016

Aigoo Adventures

Last year, I visited Sokcho and fell in love with the area. However, last year’s trip was plagued with rain, so I didn’t quite get to see the East Sea on a clear day. I decided earlier this year to do a return trip to Sokcho, but this time for a shorter duration — two nights instead of four nights. I’m glad I made this trip because I really needed to get away from Seoul and Songtan. With all the stress from my new job, I wanted nothing more than to escape for a few days, and this trip was it. It was a short getaway, but I’ve regained my sanity, and I saw the East Sea again, so that made me happy.
