What Is a Weekend?

December 8, 2017

One of my favorite places to get brunch in the city is Ichabod’s, which The Boyfriend introduced me to on our first date. It’s a tiny establishment nestled in Union Square, not too far from Strand Books, with dark, soft lighting, and a brunch menu with dishes like avocado toast and, my personal favorite, fried chicken with biscuits and gravy. We stopped by this past weekend with a friend from…

7/30/16 – 8/2/16: Montreal Getaway

August 8, 2016

Fun fact: I’ve never traveled outside of the United States. Well, unless you count the fact that I was born in South Korea, but no one counts that, right? Right. Anyway, this all changed this past weekend when I made a somewhat spontaneous decision to join the Boyfriend on his trip to Montreal. Don’t worry, I was invited, I didn’t just show up at the bus station yelling, “Surprise!”.…

5/8/16: Book Haul and South Street Seaport

May 9, 2016

  This week was a pretty darn good one in my bookish world. I mean, look at all those beautiful books! I was lucky enough to snag copies of Caraval and Heartless from work and you bet your bookshelf I ran out to buy A Court of Mist and Fury as soon as I could. I also attended the launch party for Mindi Scott and Michelle Andreani’s The Way Back To You, which…

November 13, 2015

Buzzlines is a weekly round-up of articles, videos, and other tidbits you might have missed during the week.  “One Bouquet of Fleeting Beauty, Please” by Alisha Gorder (The New York Times) — I was introduced to the Times‘s “Modern Love” column a month or two ago, but only just began reading it regularly. This week’s piece is beautiful and heartbreaking, and tackles loss and love in such a simple,…

Coney Island’s Mermaid Parade

June 22, 2015

SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 2015 — Ever since Disney’s The Little Mermaid and Splash, I have loved mermaids and to this day, still whole-heartedly believe in them. Or, at least, wish I could be one, ha. So when I heard about Coney Island’s Mermaid Parade, I knew it was something I had to attend. And this year, I did. First, here’s a little background on the parade. The Mermaid Parade was founded…

Day 5: The First Monday and Other Thoughts About 2015

January 6, 2015
Happy New Year

We’re now five days into 2015 and here I am, back at work, finishing up a simple lunch—though, the Pringles to-go cup was a nice touch—and trying to wrap my head around the fact that it’s not longer 2014. Seriously, where did the time go? Did last year even get a chance to happen, to learn to breathe and walk and live? Looking back, 2014 was rather eventful, even if it feels like…

Where I’ve Been

February 16, 2012

Hi, everyone. As you probably have noticed, my online presence has drastically diminished these last few months. I’ve slowly descended into the murky waters of I Have No Free Time Lake, and I’m trying my best to swim to the surface. I sincerely apologize for the lack of activity and, as always, I can’t thank you enough for sticking with me. For those of you who’d like to…

Updates

January 14, 2012

I just have a few tidbits to share that I thought you all might want to know. If not, oh well. 🙂 I’ve updated the “My Writing” page a little and have added a couple of quotes from reviews. I’d like to thank Kelley York and Erika for letting me quote them and for the lovely words they had to say about Hunted. School has started back up…
