the cherry on top

A cherry blossom canopy now covers the of city Busan. 
With sunlight peaking through, hem lines crawling above the knee, winter coats back on the hanger and beach season around the corner, I can say with great enthusiasm that spring is here. Picnics, days that blend seamlessly into nights and rooftop hangouts...can't wait.
However, as we make this seasonal transition, the August 2010 EPIK class can't help but acknowledge the fact that we are also quickly approaching the end of our contract. One thing I know for sure, we will move through the next 4 months with mixed emotions. Lets enjoy that fresh feeling

the dip out

Kym - Adrian - Jen  Seoul 4.2011
'The dip out' - a term coined by my dear Minsu. It describes a situation when one comes and goes without inhibition. Adrian Heller did the dip out last week. Blazed through Seoul and Busan in 6 days...walked the back alley stalls, gawked at the Jagalchi Fish Market, snickered at t-shirt typos in Nampo and enjoyed cheap Mexican night at Eva's. I was surprised how easily a friend from home made his way through our Korean daily routine, meshed with our fri-mily here then packed up, Aussie bound, as if 6 days in the ROK was nothing at all. Thanks for stopping by dudeman, love!

the prime of my life

There is something so exhilarating about live music. 
The vibrations of the base pounding through your body...
The seemingly tangible energy of the crowd...
Anticipating each new song...
Last weekend we traveled back up to Seoul for the MGMT concert, they said it best. 
Control yourself.
Take only what you need from it. 
- kids
This is our decision, to live fast and die young.
We've got the vision now let's have some fun.
Yeah, it's overwhelming, but what else can we do.
- time to pretend
You can feel it in your mind
Oh you can do it all the time
Plug it in and change the world. 
- electric feel

Music and friendship. Timeless. 
I hope you keep dancing to the beat of your own song.
