10 things my Korean Calligraphy Class taught me ūüĖĆ

žĄúžėą

Pronounced Seo-Yeh
~ A traditional method of artistic writing ~

It’s no¬†secret¬†and you may have already guessed from my occasional Korean Drama schpiel on Twitter, that I have a very¬†strong¬†appreciation¬†for Korean Culture, and that includes Customs, Traditions, Language, Food, Entertainment, Art and most recently Literature.¬†I often get asked “So what made you¬†get into¬†Korean Culture and what do you love about it?‚ÄĚ and as I’m currently learning korean I usually get the surprised expression followed by¬†‚ÄúOh, you’re learning Korean!? What made you want to learn it?‚ÄĚ to which¬†I reply;¬†‚ÄúI just love the Korean culture, language, Dramas, Music and of course the Food!‚ÄĚ ~ which is the more condensed answer.

¬†A more detailed and lengthy answer would be;¬†‚ÄĚI really love the language ~ It’s¬†beautiful¬†in every sense of the word; Nice to speak and nice to listen to. The sentence structure fascinates me.¬†Hangul (The Korean Alphabet) to me looks especially beautiful written in calligraphy. I find Korean customs and traditions admirable. Korean Street Art/Graffiti with Calligraphy incorporated is my favourite kind. Korean food is hands down my favourite cuisine of all time ~ Japanese, Thai and Greek are close behind but Hanshik wins for sure. When it comes to Korean¬†Music; I love all kinds; Classical, K-Indie and of course a little K-Pop. And when it comes to Korean Dramas, I‚Äôm well known to lose out on hours of sleep just to get in ‚Äúone more episode‚ÄĚ which let’s face it, is impossible because ~¬†Cliffhangers amirite? haha!

“PROCAFFEINATING”

(n) The tendency not to start anything until you’ve had a cup of coffee.

I’m always on the lookout for independent coffee shops that are cosy, inviting and have friendly staff that are passionate about the¬†art of coffee-making. I find coffee shops are the best places to be productive¬†so the atmosphere and environment of a coffee shop means everything¬†to me. Having spent countless hours in Coffee shops I have come to realise that a coffee shop is way more than just the coffee. It’s the staff, the decor and¬†a good WiFi connection. Lion Coffee + Records located in Clapton tick all the boxes and that’s why I’m thrilled to be sharing this coffee spot as my first London Recent discovery Post.¬†

“Are you chatsnapping?” – Lauren German

I think we all have an inmate nosiness about us and that’s why we love reality T.V so much. Snapchat is our instant fix of reality in its purest form. It’s no wonder¬†why it has become increasingly popular. Admittedly I was late to the Snapchat ‘game’ and never really saw the appeal but OH how the times have changed! I now spend a ridiculous amount of time going through my snapchat feed and I follow a crazy amount of people. I kid you not, it’s borderline a “cause for concern” and I have friends who can testify to that. By some miracle, I have managed to narrow down my extensive list to a tiny list of my Top 10¬†favourite Snappers. If you’re new to Snapchat or¬†if¬†you’re looking for new people to follow then this handy guide will help you along the way. Don’t forget to share your personal favourites in the comment section below. You can find me on Snapchat @ hellohenrietta

Chelsea Wears | Username: chelseawears

I absolutely love Chelsea. I’ve been a fan of her YouTube channel since the very beginning and till this day I still love watching her videos. She’s naturally funny and relatable so I ¬†was thrilled to find out that she had a snapchat account. Aside from her lovely personality I think the character she created called ‘Cheryl’ (upside down mouth filter) is the main reason I fell in love with Chelsea’s snapchat. I think we can all agree that at some point in our lives we have come across a ‘Cheryl’ – The over-zealous self-appointed neighbourhood watch. I call them curtain twitchers! You have to watch her snaps to understand. It’s hilarious and I promise you won’t regret it.

Spencer Pratt | Username: prattspencer

Not everyone’s cup of tea but I for one love Spencer Pratt’s snaps. I tweeted about it once and Spencer gave it a like and a RT. I’m very tempted to change my bio to ‘Spencer Pratt once liked and RT one of my tweets’ Ha! ¬†In case there are people out there that doubt his awesomeness or are put off by what they think they know about Spencer, I’ll just say this; Spencer¬†is very much in control of what ‘image’ he puts out there. TBH I think it’s all for sh*%s and giggles. He has the kind of sense of humour that once you get it… you just get it. I live for his trips to the barbers, magazine reviews (especially the commentary on the Royal Family & the “who wore it better?” parts), burrito¬†segments and the funny jujitsu dance that he does before his workouts. He seems super friendly with everyone and his trips to the farmer’s markets are far and few between but my fave snaps for sure. I can’t get enough of the stunning ocean view he has right on his doorstep. Lucky guy! He’s living the good simple life and it’s a pleasure to watch.
