+ May Netflix Favs

Sunday, June 04, 2017

I just spent 7hrs of my Saturday watching the docu-series on Netflix called The Keepers. Let's just say it's some heavy sh*t. Throughout every episode I felt angry, sad, and even sometimes hopeful at some parts. You start to realize that a lot of people turn a blind eye due to corruption and fear and throughout each show it brings to light what I believe to be true in this case is the failure in both church and state to bring justice to these women. It really is heartbreaking. You grow up thinking the government and the law enforcement are out there to protect the people, but in reality there are the ones who are being deceptive and this cannot be more relevant than right now.

These women endured so much. Words cannot really describe how I felt after watching this, but I think everyone should see this docu-series.

Also, another Netflix fave is Hasan Minhaj's stand-up, Homecoming King. For those who are first-generation American, this bit is so real that it's kind of scary...Watching this brought up some of the memories of me growing up as an Korean American with immigrant parents.


+ Adulting

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

I'm back at it again. Going to start logging my thoughts, feelings, wishes, and my inspirations because I simply need an outlet.

To be quite honest, I've been feeling discouraged about everything lately. I think most people think I have my sh*t together (or maybe not) but I'm so so far from it. Hoping to be super candid and honest here because I'm tired of seeing all these 20-somethings who seem to have it all figured out. Like-- I'm just trying to make sure I have enough money for dinner next week (just kidding, but for reals).

Moving out to LA from Duluth, Georgia has probably been the scariest but also the best decision I've ever made in my life. I've been out here for over two years now and I don't think I've really taken advantage of all this city has to offer. I get the privilege of being surrounded by so many creative and inspiring individuals and I'm ready...ready to make things happen, create things, and just start doing me.


+ Artist Muse - Kei Meguro

I'm in awe of Kei Maguro's work.  Each illustration is so captivating, brilliant, and detailed. I love how she uses a pop of color in her illustrations. It's absolute perfection. 


+ The Spectacular Now

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

The Spectacular Now is a coming-of-age story about two high school kids named Sutter and Aimee. No it's not one of those cliche teen movies but rather a raw depiction of two teens crossing into adulthood and dealing with the realities of life.

Last summer I had the opportunity to be part of this film as an art department assistant. (Even got my name in the creds I'm totally legit now).  I got to help out here and there on various sets. My biggest contribution were the stars in a big prom scene which I handmade.

I don't think people realize how many people are involved in this storytelling process we call filmmaking. It's a beautiful thing to be able to tell a story and is an experience I will never forget.

Everyone should go see this...because it's a beautiful film with a talented cast and amazing crew! 


+ O Canada!

Thursday, September 05, 2013

For Labor Day Weekend my parents decided to drive to Rochester, NY to visit my sister. I honestly thought the 13-14 hour drive would be hell but it wasn't too bad. The route we took was very scenic with a lasting view of mountains and trees.

My mom had never been to Niagara Falls so we decided to go take a day trip to Canada. It's truly breathtaking in person and the boat ride on the Maid of Mist was wonderful. There was this moment on the boat when we were surrounded by the raging falls. We were immersed by the waterfall as if it were going to take us down under.
