Since last March, I’ve been drawing like crazy - my instagram is proof enough of how active I’ve been lately. I’ve been posting more digital work than ever. My artistic output in total during 2020 probably beats any other year that I've spent doing art. I realised that just drawing a lot is a huge… Continue reading [Chatter] Let’s talk art~
6 years of Twenty Swans!
Okay, so a whole host of things happened in the last year that mean I am lucky to even have cool photos to share right now to reflect on. Who would have guessed that when I flew home to the UK, I'd end up leaving the house only a handful of times in 6 months??… Continue reading 6 years of Twenty Swans!
[Reflection] My Placement Year Studying Abroad in Seoul
Oh gosh. Where do I start? I started this post off from Amsterdam, during a really long layover on my way back to Birmingham, and I'm finishing it off now, just as my final year is about to begin. Korea already feels like a dream from another time. I have a LOT of feelings and… Continue reading [Reflection] My Placement Year Studying Abroad in Seoul
[Chatter] Staying Until it’s Over
It's almost April, somehow. This year feels surreal, but for all the wrong reasons. In the words of my university, the current situation is dynamic and rapidly changing. The current government advice is to travel home, however, after much discussion with friends and family, I am staying in Seoul for the time being, at least until… Continue reading [Chatter] Staying Until it’s Over
[Chatter] Living in Seoul during the coronavirus outbreak
Hello everyone! It's been a while. I hope you're all well and staying healthy. As for me, I'm finally reaching the end of a 3 month winter break, the result of extensions due to the coronavirus. In February, my boyfriend flew over to see me so we could celebrate lots of things together, like our anniversary… Continue reading [Chatter] Living in Seoul during the coronavirus outbreak
Five Years of Twenty Swans!?!?!
Things change a lot in five years. I started this blog while still struggling in school and now I'm over halfway through my undergraduate degree. Not to mention that it's now 2020 - At the beginning of the last decade I got into Kpop and I have started the 2020s in Seoul. I can't even… Continue reading Five Years of Twenty Swans!?!?!
Media Edit Autumn/Winter 2019, #1
It's been a while (April, in fact??), so I've consumed a fair bit of content since last time. I've split it all up into two posts, so I will be covering TV and music in a separate post. I can't believe we're moving onto a new decade of new things to read and watch and… Continue reading Media Edit Autumn/Winter 2019, #1
[Seoul Diary/Reflection] Winter Is… On Its Way
It's November. Every Seoulite has embraced the arrival of jacket season, apart from me. The weather was still hitting 20 degrees C at the end of October. It took a sharper downturn to highs of 14 just recently, depending on the day, and in the evenings it can hit anywhere between 10C and -2C! Somehow,… Continue reading [Seoul Diary/Reflection] Winter Is… On Its Way
[Thoughts/Seoul Diary] Not Quite Homesick
So my second week of classes is over. I have a long post for you all today - I am back to relying on the blog to get my thoughts out due to the different timezones and sometimes not wanting to bother people with my feelings. I've been telling people I am fine and settling… Continue reading [Thoughts/Seoul Diary] Not Quite Homesick
[Thoughts] My first day (or 3) in Seoul
I headed out early the other day to grab some things from the convenience store a minute down the road, but after I ate I got hit with some mad jetlag. Fair, as it was reaching 2am back in the UK. But I also meant to buy a multitude of other things which I didn't… Continue reading [Thoughts] My first day (or 3) in Seoul
