Blog? What blog?


You caught me. Time got the best of me and I've contributed a lot less to this blog than I would have liked to admit.

Thankfully, "blog more" is at the top of my 2011 resolutions list, so that's exactly what I'll be doing! Rather than just depending on my phone's camera, I'll start carrying my Nikon around more often to capture the ever mysterious and never-sleeping Seoul.

I've also wanted to do some film photography for awhile now, but I never knew where to start. Recently though, my friend Jamie got a mini Diana, which is a toy camera with detachable lenses and a flash, and I think that's a great starting point. I don't want to invest in an SLR until I familiarize myself again with film photography.

Nor do I have an excuse for blogging less. Just recently, a few crucial changes at my job made my schedule a lot freer and made me a lot happier :) In short, I was able to convince my producer to move me to the international news segment twice a week rather than the Bigger Picture segment every night. Now, I have more time to explore and freelance while doing a segment I'm much more interested in. Granted, it's a pay cut since I'm working much less, but sometimes you gotta sacrifice a little to do what you love, right? :)

On another note, I have a lot of great things to look forward to in the near future. My mama is coming the first week of March, which I am soooooo excited about! I've been making a tentative list of all the things we're going to do, all the food we're going to eat and all the places we'll explore. The list is entirely too long for the 8 days she'll be here, but I get so excited when I find a new place that I have to put it on the "list." If I can't show my mom, I'm sure I'll be able to share it with another visitor!

Then, in April, I'm going back to the States for 2 weeks to go to Coachella, hang out with friends and spend time with my family, whom I miss oh-so-much! I'v been dreaming of the beautiful weather and fun times ever since I booked my flights last week. So the countdown begins!

Anyway, because I put my goal to blog more on here, I hope you can help me stay accountable. Please feel free to leave a comment, question or concern and I'll be sure to address it. Plus, it's nice to get a note every once in reminds me that this isn't just a vain attempt to write about my experiences ;)

I miss all of you terribly. I hope you're enjoying the beautiful weather and if the weather isn't so beautiful (ahem, East Coasters), know that I feel your pain.

Until next time, bisous xoxo

I was just about to leave you a comment on FB that I missed your blog. I depend heavily on your insight to make me feel just a bit closer to you guys.

I also think you are going to love Mark's new co-worker who I sent his way. Charlotte is one of my dearest friends and a really special person. You are going to love her!

Have a great weekend!
