"The days are long, the hours short. If only I can just do without sleep."
The other day I recall the time I went drinking coffee early in the morning in Seoul. I woke up early, 5:30am. As it was summer, the sun was already up. Although it was summer, morning was a breeze chilling. I stuck my hands inside the pockets of the jeans. Walking in Seoul in the morning, it is just like any other city, quiet and comfortable. I saw the awaken grandma, I smiled. I wander in Samcheong-dong for my coffee, it was difficult. The city has yet to awake, I slowly crept inside her. Slowly I did not want to disturb her. I found a cafe that open early and slipped in. I knew iced americano was a favorite drink of everyone but I still bought my favorite cappuccino. Sitting at the corner of the cafe, I watch as the city slowly awoke. Reading my magazine while listening to the music in the cafe, I smelled the making of coffee. This must be the simple happiness. Ah~
Recently I found out that when it comes to giving present, I have totally no sense of it. I think partly because I don’t like to receive presents in the first place. Gift giving is really a profound skill and honestly sometimes the correlation between the price and the present cannot be compared. A good present is one that touches the heart and only through understanding the person can you know what is the most sincere gift. I think I have a lot to learn when it comes to gift giving!

- Me: *gentle nods*
- Sometimes classes are so philosophical they give some good sense about life.
