If I travel alone, I want to go to South Korea. Some people may wonder why Korean intends to travel to Korea instead of other new places. There are two reasons why I travel to Korea. First, I have lived in Northern California for ten years and have not visited Korea in the meantime. Korean proverbs say that mountains and rivers will change in a decade. Ten years is long enough to change the landscape. These days, many things are changing every day, not ten years. So I want to go and see how Korea has changed this time. The second reason is that I never traveled alone when I lived in Korea because I thought it was lonely and dangerous. So when I was young, I went on a trip with my family or with my friends in college. As the mountains and rivers changed, I changed, getting old and brave in 10 years, and I could enjoy my solo time.
Many daily lives are changing due to the global Pandemic. The first time quarantine began, most people started to do things at home that they did not have done before because they were busy. They began to learn the fields which they were interested in through various media. Gardening, baking, cooking, learning musical instruments. And they met people in virtual and played games together too. One of the most popular media is home-training. They started work out at home, who had been too busy to exercise, other people workout at home like usual, they did. Yoga mats, dumbbells, yoga balls, hula hoops, etc., were also sold well. So am I. I started writing as a hobby at home, and today, I'm writing about the Workout playlist Challenge.
Before start, I want to write a conclusion first. Skincare is self-care, and makeup is to express beauty.
One day, I saw my cosmetics and makeup products. There was only toner, lotion, and sunscreen; it was so shabby. I looked closely at my face through the mirror—traces of my busy life buried in every corner of my face. But I had no regrets about my past busy days because I came to the US for studying and finally got a master's degree recently. How can you imagine an international full-time student's life? I went to the library instead of the party and went to bed than hangout. I wrestled with lots of assignments, reading books, and English every day. Studying was important to me, and I finally got a master's degree recently. By the way, I got a degree, but I realized that I had not taken care of myself, especially my face. I started to take care of me. I will write my skincare three steps, which I did.
I moved bay area, San Francisco, in 2010 from South Korea. I live in here over the decade. Living in another country is a great opportunity and a life challenge. It is fun to make friends, attempt new environments, eat various food, and face diverse cultures. In contrast, it is not easy to get used to the way to live in another country. Especially, living in another country and getting sick is the most difficult emotionally and physically, then I miss my hometown and my family's care and want to eat mom's food, even if it's not a big illness.
She has been my friend ever since I recalled the past. She was always by my side and with me. Her arms were open to hug and help me; To my every move, she reacted and cared as if it were her body and mind. Someone who can touch, embrace, and take care of me without my permission. A person who gives unconditional love, praise, or encouragement. Of course, I couldn't remember when I was in her womb, birth, or infant. But she would have taken good care of me with sincerity and love because she was always full of love and consideration for me when I was growing up. When I fell to the ground, she ran to me and got me up. But more than her behavior, her face looked more painful and worried than me. She dressed me pretty and took me out to take a picture. Her face, which took my picture, looked happier and more joyful than me. I cried because my friend moved away. Her face looked sadder than mine. She laughed because of me and cried because of me.
I have lived in the same town for ten years and would like to introduce it. It located in the North Bay of Northern California, so it takes a twenty-minute drive from San Francisco. I can go to the beach or mountain within 30 minutes in the car. In other words, I am enjoying and spending time in the city or nature as 'city girl and nature girl'. Sunday afternoon my friend and I went hiking on one of the trails near my house. The trail is not a popular spot, and most locals are hiking with their family or with close friends or with doggies at any time during the day. The scenery of the trail is amazingly beautiful and spectacular. Mask-on and social distance are the new manners, and since the epidemic is serious now, but we can't stop outdoor activities.
