Phew!

Last week was busy busy busy, with work work work.

When Friday afternoon finally hit, I looked at my desk and saw that I had at least 5 identical cups of coffee sitting all about.

And for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out which one was the one I had bought that morning. So I took a gamble and grabbed the one closest to me and took a healthy swig.

Mistake.

The good news is, it totally woke me up. Nothing like 3-day-old cold coffee hitting your gullet in the middle of Friday afternoon. That chill up your spine can keep you going for another good 6 hours alone. Red Bull, eat your heart out.

I watched the Avengers Movie on opening weekend, and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the movie.

But it got me thinking…

The Avengers could really use one more member on their team…and I knew just who would do the job.

TO BE CONTINUED…

My long work hours are finally over! (For now!)

So now, I get to catch up on my sleep. As you know, sleep is very important to me.

And my body tends to seek it out one way or another. Many times unintentionally.

My mom was telling some of my friends a story about how my narcoleptic ways preceded my working days…it all started when I was a wee little Whang.

True story. I was a heavy sleeper, and would actually sleep through falls like that. Fortunately, my mom would usually catch me before I would eat it.

Anyways, with my schedule opening up, I’m hoping to get into the habit of updating more than once a week again.

Thanks for your patience, my lovelies!

Is it just me, or was January a really really long month?

Even after the hustle and bustle of the holidays died down, the combination of work, fundraising, studying, church activities, and getting ready for my February trip to Haiti has generated a little bit of stress.

And (unfortunately) this week, it’s beginning to show on my face. I finally decided to take a minute to just stop what I was doing and get things under control. Mini-Grace tagged along. Again.

Ew. I wish my face understood that I am way too old to be breaking out like a teenager. Despite temporarily deactivating my Facebook account, which has not-so-surprisingly opened up my schedule considerably, I still find myself wishing that there were more hours in the day.

On the bright side,  I am super pumped about returning to Haiti! I have had the wonderful opportunity to work with my church in order to partner up with Grace International (as well as another non-profit called Beyond All Boundaries) on a much larger scale. This trip coming up at the end of February will symbolize the start of something amazing for Haiti, especially for the children.

[If you are in the DC/VA/MD area and are interested in joining me on future trips to Haiti, check out the pamphlet I made below and shoot me an e-mail!]

As ususal, I love your faces. If you live around the DC area, enjoy the beautiful weather this week~

Wait…does DC even count as “South?”

As you know, I am a clumsy person.

A very…VERY clumsy person.

On my way to work, I had another wipeout on the streets of DC. The laces on my high heel boots managed to get tangled and before I knew it, I had fallen off my bus and onto the sidewalk.

Fortunately, there were two other people walking by, who ran up to help pick up my bags (and body) off of the floor. It made me realize just how different DC was from NYC…

Despite the embarrassing tumble, I came to the realization that I am so blessed to be where I am today.

Last week, I was able to go to an Israel Houghton and New Breed concert in Gaithersberg, MD.

I was blown AWAY. I wish I had taken some pictures while I was there, but for once, I enjoyed the concert so much that I didn’t even touch my camera. 2 hours straight of non-stop worship. And it still ended too soon.

The Ravens may have lost today, but another week is on it’s way! Are you ready my lovely readers? Let’s see what God has in store!

This article is dedicated to my friend Jason Kim, who is dutifully and graciously serving our country in Afghanistan. Come home soon, brother!

Phew! 2011 is OVAH, and 2012 is HERE!

According to the WordPress Summary Report I got yesterday:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

(Click the image above for the full statistics!)

That’s a lot of love. Thank you all for making 2011 the most successful year yet for my blog!

Since Christmas, I have been reflecting on the past year, and how much has changed in my life since last January

  1. In January, I rang in the New Year with my friends in New Jersey, and spent the rest of the month battling icy sidewalks, broken apartment heaters, and searching for my snow-buried car.
  2. In February, I continued to deal with crazy NYC Metro incidents, and Starbucks came out with their new “Trenta”-sized coffee.
  3. In March, I talked dirty to the Starbucks baristas, got bitten by a Vampider, and packed my bags to move back to the MD/DC area to work as an architect!
  4. In April, I shot my very first firearm, and shared trade secrets, including how to avoid bedtime bugs and how to make their very own photo comics~
  5. In May, I enjoyed my mother’s amazing cooking, tried to bring sexy back, almost accidentally killed my brother, and went fishing for river monsters.
  6. In June, I practiced my golf swing at the range, and tried to convince a stranger that I didn’t fart in an elevator.
  7. In July, my family went to Orlando’s Islands of Aventure, Faith gave a shot at making her own comics, and I pondered deeply on what my Prius would look like if it was a Transformer
  8. In August, I broke down and finally got myself a new computer, and experienced one of the most disgusting things in my life, and it was all my dad’s fault.
  9. In September, I went fossil hunting with my dad, helped my grandfather get Sex on the Beach, and had a stranger’s butt too close for comfort to my face.
  10. In October, I got myself some new glasses, and learned how to deal with my Dad’s creeping and my Mom’s backseat Facebook driving.
  11. In November, I began my very first Mini-Series comics (in which my own boss cameo’d), celebrated 11/11/11 at 11:11 am, and started my own Non-Profit Organization for Haiti by selling my comics.
  12. Finally, in December, I got to try my hand out again as a photographer, gingerbread architect, and singer/dancer.

What in the world could 2012 possibly bring? 2011 had a new job, new lifestyle, new locale, new friends, and a new look for me. I lost 15 lbs, started a non-profit that raised over $1000 in a month’s time, worked for a job that I absolutely love, and am the happiest I have been in a long time. I have no idea, but I have a really good feeling that God is still going to outdo 2011~

My own goals for 2012 include becoming fully licensed as an architect by the end of 2012, taking the New Mercy Project to the next level, and Lord willing (as corny as it may sound), finding love.

And no worries, lovely readers. I’ll be sure to take you all on this journey with me. Here’s to 2012~

새해 복 많이 받으세요!

PS: If you wanted the rest of the Christmas Videos I took, I’ve put them below!

Thanks for your patience~ I’m back!

What a month! December has been pretty crazy with work, Haiti, and getting ready for the Christmas Musical.

But~ I am so excited about all of these projects and what’s to come.

2012 is going to be a great year, I can feel it!

Love your faces, my lovely readers. Thanks for an amazing year, and keep posted for more comics and videos!

The plot thickens…

Hang in there, lovely readers. More shenanigans to be had this upcoming Wednesday  Thursday!

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving holiday!

My family certainly did!

Happy Thanksgiving, from the Whang Gang.

I have no idea where that saying even came from.

All I know is that after my trip to the dentist’s, I definately wasn’t able to.

My dentist novacaine’d me to the point that I couldn’t use my upper lip for the rest of the day, which made things (like NOT drooling) very difficult. The lip felt disembodied and squishy. Like dough. Om nom nom.

The numbness even spread to my nostrils. If I tried to flare them, only one would actually move.

Anyway, back to normal stuff!

Another fantastic donor is featured today! And this featured photo comic is for David Woo from Maryland, who has also been put onto the New Mercy Project’s featured donor list! Thanks!

We are 2/3 of the way through to reaching our goal of $900!

Please continue to show your support and donate even a dollar! Each dollar feeds 3 children, and I know that we can give them a Christmas that they will never forget!

Ahh, finally a weekend to recover.

My cold is finally almost gone, I got to sleep in, and I got to pamper myself a bit after my bathtimes.

Unfortunately, Mini-Grace wanted in on that action and wouldn’t leave me alone.

You must be this tall to use a hair straightener, Mini-Grace.

Anywhoo, this week should be much better and filled with comics and such. September was quite the chaotic month, and thanks to everything that went awry, I have quite a few fun little comics to draw and share with you all.

Love your faces. Bye!

Yay, an update!

It’s been an entire week since I’ve last updated, but it feels like it’s been longer for some reason.

I’ve been putting in quite a few hours at work, and had to spend most of yesterday in the office as well, so comics have been (unfortuanately) non-existant this week.

Sleep has been pretty hard to come by, too, which resulted in my transformation into a zombie at home.


Good thing Mom is good at fighting off zombies. (My poor chesticles are still sore from that punch.)

Anyways.

To answer the question I *know* is burning in your minds…

Yes, I do actually own a pair of leopard print pajamas.

Too, too sexy, I know.

I have an actual photo comic in the works for this week! If I can get home at a decent hour, I will do my best to get it up before the weekend!

Love you all, and thanks for continuing to read this blog!
