I was born in the Capital of North, err SOUTH korea. Seoul. Like any kind of kid, I had friends and went to school. First Grade and all the glory that came along was in my the palm of my hand, ready to be played with.
Sadly, my parent's buisness failed due to a current recession and we lost lots of money.
Not that I knew this back then, mind you.
Their great idea to fix everything? Start off anew in America. The land where they can't even buy a pack of gum without using a dictionary, but they were lenient. They gave me a choice. Lol. They said I would have the choice, me - the little 7 year old kid, to move our entire family to the United States.
My choice? Well, I said yes, because I thought it was like a visit to the zoo! What did I even know about America at the age of 7?!
I left my friends crying, and we took off for California, where I would spend a good portion of my life.
I realize now, I should never have said yes.
