Korea: Part 1

I'm home! Throughout school I never completed a true all nighter but my jet-lagged self yesterday watched the sky become dark and then light again from my bedroom window. What a frustrating experience! As I started to get sleepy, it was already bright outside. I almost wanted Vancouver to be as dark, gloomy and wet as it was during my entire stay in Korea AND Hong Kong. I will not let myself complain about the weather during my trip though. Rain or no rain, my trip was awesome and I had a great time.

More on the way!


June Adventures

June went by so much quicker than I had anticipated. Between lab reports every week, studying and volunteering I found little time to sit down and reflect.

Here are some of the June highlights:

  1. Became the new owner of an Samsung Galaxy S3. Major upgrade from my HTC Incredible S (which wasn't able to charge properly...). I even bought camera lenses for the smartphone. With the fisheye, wide-angle and macro attachments, taking photos with my phone has become a lot more fun
  2. Graduations! Graduations! I made my rounds to visit other schools graduations and celebrated with my cousins and friends
  3. I saw Wongfu Productions when they visited Vancouver (well, Phil and Wes). I high-fived Phil's sweaty hand and saw Wes play frisbee with UBC students. Vancouver fans were even able to see the newest Wongfu video before it was uploaded to YouTube :)
  4. Dragonboating! This is something I would never thought I would do but since I started my "YES!" attitude last year, I am always trying new things. I have to say, I am really enjoying it. Travelling once a week to Victoria can be a little draining but the experience is worth it.
  5. In one week I will be making my way to Korea! I may disappear again for another 2-3 weeks but I will be back! 
Happy Canada Day!



The name "sojoo" roots from "this is so Joany". Somehow in my convoluted thoughts, the name makes sense. On this blog you will find a collection of photos from my every day life. Hope you enjoy and stay for a little while.
