BEDM Challenge: Day 22 Korea Makes Me Happy

It's day 22 of the blog every day challenge and today's prompt was a mixed bag for me. Here's the prompt that opened the door for me to be snarky:

Rant about something. Get up on your soapbox and tell us how you really feel. (a pet peeve, a current event, a controversial topic, something your husband or roommate or neighbor or boss does that really ticks you off)

Hmmmmm....the possibilities are endless for all kinds of sarcastic quips and good 'ol fashioned soapbox preaching! My husband will tell you that I enjoy an opportunity for righteous anger and he isn't wrong because sometimes a good rant can feel wonderful, but I wasn't really feeling ranty today. Actually, I feel down right chipper! I just got done with my very first K-Pop dance class so all of the bubbly dance moves are most likely responsible for my happy attitude. I'm even whistling, yes whistling a happy little ditty.

So, here's what I'm going do instead of ranting I'll share some Korean things that make me really happy.

When I walk into 7-11 and see a glorious display of Samgak Kimbap. You didn't know it, but all the 7-11s went to South Korea to live and prosper.

Gwangjang Market's never ending food selection. I want to eat everything...TWICE.

Taekwondo because it let's me hone my jumping-off-the-wall-while-aiming-a-kick-at-a-burgler's-head in a practical manner.


Ridiculous Korean camera taking poses with friends.

And my new current favorite, K-Pop dance classes! 

Well, I hope you enjoyed reading this little post and while I strayed from the blog prompt I couldn't help it. Nothing to get indignant or snarky about when you are whistling a ditty! What are some of your favorite things?


  1. Oh I miss Korea SO MUCH!!! Especially after reading this post!! You look like you're having such a blast there!!

  2. I love that photo of the market and the idea of wanting to eat everything twice. :) Thanks for visiting my blog today!

  3. I love reading this... I've never been to Korea but all those things you posted about looked delightful!

    Especially the Hello Kitty Cafe! How cool!
