This post was inspired by Isabel of The Sunny Side of This. I enjoyed her post, and realized that I rarely write anything personal. Here’s your chance if you were hoping to get to know me a little better!
4 things about my appearance
I wear glasses, because contacts are a bit too uncomfortable to be worth it most of the time. Someday I’ll have lasik surgery done!
I almost never pluck my eyebrows- they have a nice shape to them without me having to do anything.
I wear a lot of earrings. They add so much to an outfit!
My height is 5’5”, or 1.64 cm- I’m ever so slightly taller than you, Isabel! 😀
4 jobs I’ve had
Street team member for Recycle Everywhere- I went around to summer festivals and events and talked to people about recycling.
Canvasser for a citizen-based environmental organization.
When I was 15, I worked at my aunt’s law firm. I wore jeans and sneakers, listened to my iPod and reorganized files in a storage shed. It was very relaxing!
English teacher in Korea- my current gig!
4 places I’ve been
4 things in my purse
A reusable water bottle
A T-money card for buses and trains in Korea!
4 things I can’t live without
Diverse, interesting people to talk to
4 favorite things
Reading in cafes or at home on grey, rainy days
4 things I don’t eat/drink
Sugary sodas (they’re not good for me, and not good enough to be worth it!)
Boendegi, or boiled silkworms- the only Korean food I detest!
SPAM/highly processed meats – not into it.
Oreos. This has caused conflict with a couple of my friends 😀
4 favorite foods
Gamjatang- Korean potato and pork bone soup
Perfectly ripe mangoes
Fermented/cultured foods! I’m definitely geeking out on those. Here are my kefir, makgeolli and kombucha projects (although normally they are separated to avoid contamination)
Toasted sourdough with raspberry jam- oh, how I miss sourdough!
4 things I will do this weekend
(I’m heading to the east coast for a beer and makgeolli festival this weekend, so…)
Walk along the beach
Sample new and exciting varieties of makgeolli
Get into some intense Scrabble matches
(Possibly) hang out in a hot tub!
Which begs the question- what are four things you will be doing this weekend?
