Culture Shock 101.

I guess this blog has somewhat of a corny title, but then again, we can't all perfect the art of being corny quite as well as I! Nonetheless, the trip is quickly approaching, and everyday I am feeling more and more unprepared! So, instead of sitting around and allowing it to sneak up on my any longer, I've decided to start this blog. Every day... or as often as I get around to it... I will post something new that I can learn about South Korea.

I also hope for this blog to be a way for me to journal my thoughts, questions, and comments mostly regarding my summer trip, but also just for everyday life. I hope that sharing how I learn and grow can help to encourage those around me. So.. for whoever actually takes the time to read this, other than my own mom (which I very much appreciate mom!), I will try my best to be open and honest. Hope you enjoy it and learn much along the way with me!

As a side note... this blog was also inspired by my great friend Meredith Brunson, who recently started her own blog.


  1. Rachel, I'm so excited you're joining me in this crazy blog world!
    By the way, I'm a huge fan of the title. I love puns and yours is very clever :)
    I'm definitely praying for you as you prepare for this summer. I know God is going to do amazing things in and through you and I can't wait to see it!

  2. Well, of course I will follow your blog!! And like Meredith (who I still can't remember), I love your catchy title! You have my interest peaked for Korean Drama on YouTube. I will have to give it a look.....
