Tales of Wonderlost

I'm a Korean-American adoptee living in Seoul, just finished my MA in Anthropology (yes, i took all of my classes in Korean TT). In my spare time, I volunteer at two great organizations: Korean Unwed Mothers' Families Association (KUMFA) and the Women's Global Solidarity Action Network (WGSAN) - a group that works on various issues, including with the survivors of military sexual slavery during WWII ("Comfort Women"). I also love cooking and baking and going to the noraebang ^^ To make a monthly donation to the Korean Unwed Mothers' Families Association, please click below!! (You can also make a 1-time donation)

i had an amazing 32nd birthday in spite of myself.

yesterday, i had dinner at a lovely bulgarian restaurant with sharon and ollie (now her fiance, congrats!) and jinwoo. i got some really thoughtful gifts: a special josie maron argon oil set from sharon, skinfood products and dog treats from ollie, and a clarasonic face cleaner from jinwoo. and last time when jinwoo’s parents were here, they said they wanted to get me a bracelet for my birthday. so i also got this bracelet made. i had it designed to match the tiffany key necklace that jinwoo’s mom gave me as a wedding present. the bracelet is a lock with our initials on a larger circle. also, since it was my first birthday since we got married, jinwoo even had a cake special-made with my name and everything. wowza! as well as some of the most beautiful flowers i’ve ever seen. and then we went and ate crab. i’m a lucky lady to get so much love as a sister, sister-in-law(!), wife, and daughter-in-law

IT’S 2AM AND I’M LAUGHING WAY TOO LOUD HELP

(via lostintrafficlights)

once you reach a certain age, some people don’t necessarily like their birthdays because it reminds us of how old we are getting. but for me, even though i was always thankful for my family or friends for trying to make birthdays nice for me, i never really liked birthdays before i was 30 because it only served to remind me how, unlike most people, i didn’t know basic information about myself, like my birthday. i didn’t start to like my birthday until last year, when right before our 31st birthday, we were able to find our korean mom and know our real birthday for the first time since we were adopted. but i also feel sorry to my fellow adoptees who are hurting because they still don’t know their own birthdays. this year, i feel very saddened and upset because of the sewol ferry tragedy. in the midst of that sadness and anger, as i celebrate another birthday, i have come to realize how thankful we must be to be able to grow another year older.
