Friday August 24th 2012 So basically i screwed up a bit and missed the first half of my orientation. I realized it was occurring and had to return to my dorm room to write down my id number. by the time i had returned to the hall where they were handing out orientation packets the morning session had ended. This was about a 30 minute walk each way :/ OTL After getting my student ID card. The...

Study Abroad Update #2
Last Saturday Dr. Gi Woon Yun and I traveled together to Dayton, where the Chicago Korean Consulate was having a workshop to have paperwork done for overseas.

I had no paperwork saying that my American name had been changed from my Korean...

hyoyeonjjang: LMAO apparently at the Soshi fanmeeting today, Tiffany was talking about some problems with her mic and Hyoyeon, who was beside her, wanted to say “the decibel is a little loud, right?” but ended up saying “decibal” which in Korean is pronounced “de-shibal” (shibal= ‘fuck’ in Korean lmao) so Taeyeon heard it and told the fans that Hyoyeon just said “fuck” The girls and fans...

UPDATE The only issue now is visa issues. I am working with my university and G.O.A’L to figure out my eligibility for an F-4 visa. My draft status was clarified in this e-mail that said: You were registered as a family of one before your adoption and those registries are closed when children are adopted.

It's all hitting the fan (See update
I guess it has been a while since I wrote anything down. Here is what has happened since my last blog blog.

We have discovered what may be a problem. Congratulations on your successful...
Yay I think??? Birth Family Search timeline!
I was born July 22nd in Daejeon, South Korea. My mother was unmarried and gave me up for adoption. I was adopted to the US.

Birth Family search update
I was just contacted by AIAA that my birth mother died in 1998. I really do not understand why I am so emotional about it. I guess it may be because i will never know some questions I wanted answers too, or get to maybe know my mother. Apparently SWS will continue searching for my paternal uncle, so i may find new relatives from korea. I am also wondering if SWS would continue to search for...
