Writing up my packing list for Paris, as I occasionally let out a cough, and would immediately steal a piece of coconut dark chocolate right after. A cold just one day before departing for Paris, it couldn’t have come at a better time.
At times when I’m feeling unwell and indulging in chocolate at the same time, takes me back to my post-surgery in 3rd grade.
Mom is feeding me pieces of decadent chocolate, as I look up at her blankly and waiting to feel better again.
Me: I want to have rice.
Mom: But you just had a surgery, so that won’t be a good idea.
Me: But how come that man lying beside me is having rice?
I love you mom :)
SO cute.. I’m dying.

I’m still madly in love with you, Park Hyo Shin.
If I hadn’t met you, I never would have realized what kind of person I am. I would have grown into an apathetic, clueless, obedient adult. However, after spending time with you, in tears, laughter, and anger, I now know that I have all these emotions inside me, too. And that makes me proud. I’m glad to have known you.
I’m still pretty much in love with my airbag even after 4 years – the same feeling I had when I first got it.
