Yesterday i spent 2 hours on the phone with my mom trying to help her buy and download MS office on her computer. And in the end, I'm for certain that the reason why we have technology is not to make our lives easier, but a way for us to pay back our parents for all the times we were annoying to them...
Here's what 2 hours of my life was like last night:

The first thing sister #1 said to me when i told her i'd like to move into NYC was "ohhh you can do brunch in the city on saturday mornings!!!!" like this was the "thing" to do. Turns out.. oh wait.. it actually is a thing. (side note: nyc is apparently brunch capital. all the cool kids are doing it. you should too)
And so with my mom visiting again, this time, i decided to treat them out to this glamorous NYC brunch that we all see on tv and movies. It was going to be like sex in the city brunch time... but with mom and sister....

Sister #1 is total obedient, first child syndrome to the max, kind of person. which means that after she had her baby, she's abiding to several of the korean post-baby delivery rules. As i was explaining to my coworker some of these traditions, we got into the topic of other weird beliefs from around the world. And surprisingly, some of the beliefs from AFrica and Korea were similar! Anyways, as a Korean, I thought i'd share some crazy korean beliefs.

A started crying and my sister who was napping asked "can you change her?" And i said "sure!" So i placed A gently on the changing table and undid her diaper...

Today for labor day, i went over to a house for a bbq where most, if not all, were married and had children. And as i sat there with 3 children, 1 baby, and 2 toddlers running around, i thought to myself "omg. where is the alcohol..."

This past May I graduated with my masters degree. With an additional $60K+ in debt, I finally finished my education (sorry mom and dad, i'm NOT getting my phd) and was ready to make me some money, conquer the world, and live that "instagram" life of being a foodie, buying chic clothes, and having a martha stewart-esq apartment. But alas, reality hit and I realized I had no job to do any of that...including even buying a latte. That's real rock bottom. =(

A couple of days ago, before my mom left for back home, my sister decided she would treat me and our mom out to some relaxin massage time. Ive never gotten a professional massage, but my friends have talked about how relaxing it is and my sister raved about how awesome it feels afterwards... and i've gotten some from friends and it felt good! So okay. fine. convinced. lets go.
The spa wasn't a fancy place but the price was very very good for an hour long deep tissue massage and came highly recommended personally and on yelp ($35). There were several different choices but I decided to go for the whole body + 10 minutes of hot stone treatment. Here's what I learned about massages

My mom loves art museums, mainly because she studied art and is an artist herself! And since she's visiting NY where a plethora of art exhibits exist, we decided to take her to one! Although she really likes modern art, she'd already been to MoMA on one of her previous NY visits, and so we decided to take her to the guggenheim. In her words, "oh! that museum! i saw it in my art books!" Done.

Confession time: i have a fear of sounds in the dark. And so naturally, I went into full alert mode and the first thing that came to mind was, "oh sh*t there's a burglar in the house."... not gonna lie, I went through some pretty awful scenarios (i need to stop watching criminal minds). But then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw something black flutter by....

Yesterday, sister #1, who is preggers, was stuck in a flash flood when her car started flooding and she couldn't get out. Talk about scary...Her car ended up flooding all the way past her hip! And then, during the winter, my mom was stuck in her car for almost 8 hours when atlanta became paralyzed due to a sprinkle of snow and ice. And so I decided to research and make a list of items everyone should have in their car for weather related emergencies!

Having recently moved to a new location, the first thing I noticed was the effect the water had on my body, especially my face and hair. NJ seems to have particularly hard water, as does a good portion of the US. Given the way it was effecting how clean I felt, and because i'm the type to google every life problem, I decided I needed to get to the bottom of this!
Sister #1 is having a baby girl very very soon! Coming from a very opinionated family of mostly girls, my sister is having trouble deciding a baby's name. She has about a month left before the arrival of my niece, and she's still struggling with the whole thing! So i asked her to write about what she looks for in a baby's name.

One great thing about living in Baltimore is the seafood! And a particular favorite restaurant of mine, Ryleigh's, started their "Tuesday Shore Nights" for the summer! It's basically specials on crabs, oysters, shrimps, delicious corn covered in cheese...i'm seriously salivating thinking about it. And a special bonus, almost everything is covered in Old Bay! If you don't know what old bay is, you're basically missing out on life.

During finals time, I'm always looking for something quick to make/eat and something that will fill me up. Usually I revert to vending machine chips, soda, and coffee... but Sister #2 has been talking nonstop about "flax seed" and how much it fills her up (also along with all the health benefits). So in an attempt to be healthy and nice to my body, I went to the grocery store and picked up some organic flax seed!
