2010 Year In Review

by Jason -- December 29, 2010

This is a week of simultaneous reflection and looking ahead. Not wanting to be left out of the process, today’s post takes a quick look back at 2010.  Sharon and I will highlight a few of our favorite posts from this past year. Next week, I’ll be looking forward.

7 Life Lessons From A 27-Year Old – I was genuinely nervous in posting this since it felt ridiculous to give life lessons. In fact, I wrote the post about 2 months before I actually published it. It was Sharon who pushed me to post it. I’m glad I did. It turned out to be the most popular post we’ve ever written and I got a lot of great comments on it. If you haven’t done so, I recommend checking out the comments to see other life lessons people added to my list.

A Year of Travel in Numbers – This post was a lot of fun to put together. I thought of the idea long before our trip was over and was always trying to think of different categories that I could show numerically.

Your Taxi Options - East Asia Style – I was amazed at how different each of the countries that we visited were. Despite being right next to each other, each east Asian country was highly unique. This picture post showed one small example of it.

Dating in Korea - If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you already know what interests me more than anything else; people watching.  Observing the dating culture in South Korea was absolutely fascinating and hilarious (mainly the matching clothes part).  Korea was the country that we spent the most time in, so I was lucky enough to closely observe its culture of physical aesthetics and dating.

Observations of a Privileged American - Let’s face it, on some level we all judge things that are different than what we’re used to.  I realize this about myself, therefore this post is one of my attempts at deciphering my thoughts and new observations about other people from other cultures.  Yes, sometimes it was scary taking in the new sights, sounds and smells (unfortunately) of places on our trip, but in this post I explain what it revealed to me about myself and the way I view other cultures in relation to the one I’ve built for myself.

April Fool’s - On April 1, 2010 I posted an article regarding an “Exciting New Update” in which Jason and I were chosen to be sent to North Korea to become its two newest journalists.  To be quite honest, I was nervous about posting it for fear of people taking it too seriously.  Luckily, only a couple people thought it was serious (which was hilarious) and to this day people have brought up this particular post in conversation.
