There’s A First Time For Everything.

For me, one of the scariest things to experience in life is boredom. Ever since childhood, I have wanted the day to day goings on of my life to remain forever fascinating. I always have to be learning something new, seeing something I haven’t seen before, or doing something I’m not entirely comfortable with in order to truly be at peace.

Even though it isn’t always possible to make each and every day the funnest day ever, it is relatively easy to keep life fresh by choosing to expose yourself to new things on a regular basis.

Let’s Eat: Korean BBQ Chicken + Vegetable Fried Rice + Gamja Jorim

When it comes to food, I am sometimes a creature of habit, so I never thought it would be very interesting for you guys to hear me eat the same thing over and over and over again. And even though I don’t mind eating the same things, I don’t particularly find it fun to write about the same old stuff day in and day out. 😴

However, I finally have a treat to share with you: Korean BBQ Chicken, Fried Rice, and Gamja Jorim (Korean braised potatoes).

Yum. 😋 🇰🇷
