cure for the common boredom

well it's almost 1 am and i'm taking it easy tonight because i've got my alarm set for 6 am tomorrow so i can take the ktx to seoul to meet my parents! their flight got in at 9 tonight and because i had to work until 8:30 i decided to wait until tomorrow to meet them. but it's gonna be a short day there- maybe we'll do a tiny bit of shopping, definitely grab some lunch, then take the train back because my parents have to check out of the hotel by noon, and sight-seeing would be a pain lugging suitcases around. so to sort of unwind i decided to kill some time filling out some random surveys that make me think about being 16 again- the good old days when we'd email every single survey we got to each other- and there were a lot of surveys at that time. oh man i still have that uber-long survey that amy and i made up. seriously, i should post that one sometime. it was quite ridiculous. i really don't expect anyone to read this, but who knows, maybe you'll learn a little more about me if you do. enter at your own risk.
