Pregnancy and Responsibility

Pregnancy and Responsibility

Thank you everyone for all the comments and messages! As we mentioned in our video, we didn’t know if we would ever be in this situation. We didn’t want to hope too much because we were trying to avoid disappointment. That meant not thinking too much about actually having a baby and the responsibility that comes with that. Letting us hope too much was a risk. It’s also why we asked people to not ask us when we were going to have a baby. Now that I’m actually pregnant we realised we have to be responsible adults!

Once the elation of finding out that I’m pregnant calmed down a bit, that was my next thought. Oh no… now we have to care for a real living baby! I’ve killed at least a third of my house plants before… Wish us luck!

We’ve been enjoying starting to look at baby stuff and make decisions, things that we couldn’t allow ourselves to do before. We are in a good apartment, and in a wonderful area full of other young families so it’s an ideal time for us. This is one of the main reasons why we moved to Seoul. I needed to be near a major hospital for this to happen. When we first moved there were sometimes comments like, “Why did you move from the countryside??? The countryside is so nice!!!” Yeah, the countryside is nice, but not convenient. There are always things going on in a person’s life that others aren’t aware of. I love the countryside, but Seoul is great too. Not only it is better to be here for health/pregnancy reasons, but it’s opened up a lot more opportunities career-wise.

I still have morning sickness at the moment, which I’m not sure is fading or if I’m just getting used to it. I’ve been told it just disappears one day. Looking forward to not feeling sick all the time!

This is just one of the mistakes I’ve made in Korean! It’s hard learning a second language and not knowing how words are related or not related at all. At least Hugh got a good laugh out of my dumb assumption.

Our audience can be quite fragmented. We have people who only read the comics, people who only watch our videos and some who only follow the Nicholalala webtoon. This new series is a way of showing the comics to the YouTube audience and to discuss them further as a couple.

When I posted this comic there were people who said they thought the same thing, so I felt a little less dumb! Let us know what other comics you’d like us to revisit in a video!

Original comic is here.

Busking in Seoul

My brother visited for a weekend and went busking in Hongdae. Unfortunately we had torrential rain for most of the weekend, but it cleared up enough for him to go busking for a short time. He has performed in many countries but this was the first time in South Korea. A lot of people commented later saying they wish they had known he would be playing, but until the last minute we really were not sure if he would be able to. He will come back sometime though. My brother is a full time drummer (and also plays real drums of course), he plays in bands but also regularly does bucket drumming. A video of him playing went viral a few years ago and since then he has been invited to play at events around the world. He also does a lot of live streaming now where he teaches some drumming techniques or streams his busking.

Korean Jumping Spider

Just a little video about these types of jumping spiders in Korea. I’ve shown these spiders in the Nicholalala Webtoon before.

The more I filmed him, the more I thought he was cute, so I carefully put him outside.

BUSY BEE

READ THE FULL EPISODE HERE.

Since I’ve been photographing bees and blossoms a lot for my paintings, I’ve noticed how many flies were hanging around too. The bees are very focused and busy and have an important job, but I always wonder about the flies…
