New shoes! It’s ridiculous how many times I’ve stabbed myself, instinctively grabbing the heel to take these shoes off. But they’re fly!

This year, my pole teacher and myself decided to have a Halloween Party at the studio. I haven’t been participating in Halloween too much since living in Korea, so this year I wanted to do something fun, creative and something I’ve never done before. So I decided to portray this look. I watched several videos, pictures and played in my makeup once before to get an idea of what to do for the day. 

I LOVED the result. I think it came out great for someone who never has the winged eyeliner the same on both eyes. 

This is the photo I had open while doing my face (found on google):

I had so much fun with this. This was the first time I went all out with making myself up. The makeup took me over an hour to do. 

Some Youtube videos that I’ve seen and adored:

As you’ll notice I took pointers from all of them, decided what would suit me and performed. 

Yes! I poled in full face. SO.MUCH.FUN!

Theres nothing like a late night green smoothie as I bust out paper work in Beans Bins.

For the last couple of nights I haven’t been able to get some good sleep. When I hit the pillow, choreography and the manuscript I was writing for work were on my mind. Aaaaaahhh. But it’s all in good fun! Can’t wait for the vertical performance. In the words of Borat, I’m so excite! Let’s just hope this excitement allows me to get some restful sleep.

The good stuff! Jummy!

Tonights dinner! I love how, in Korea, they deliver your food in the dishes. (된장찌개 -dwenjjangchigae) My favorite Korean dish!


My Old home used to be all the way up these stairs. 79 to be exact!!!

Memories! Broken bottles and cold butts.


I miss you. You taught me how to know myself, how to challenge myself. My chingus who initially I had nothing in common with suddenly became common in my life;they became my family. From the time I spent with you I learned a valuable lesson, we must keep growing. I learned how to be alone and not…

Beautifully written. I’d have to agree on so much of what is said here. Loving. Being alone and not lonely. Challenging yourself. Korea taught me!


Every time I see the prices.. I’m like…
