Moving to Korea

So this doesn't have anything to do with KPop but it does have something to do with Korea... P.s. I'm crying as I write this, it's very difficult.
As many of you know, I will be making a life altering move to Seoul next month and it's so close it's terrifying. My parents are even freaking out because this isn't like my trip to Ireland, I'm not going to Seoul for two weeks to study I am MOVING. So for my parents to see their only child spreading her wings at 31 and taking off to a forieng country where they will have no way of rescuing her is very scary for them.
seeing my dad this terrified made me cry, he raised me as a single father until I was 10 and he remarried. When he saw my Facebook post about me disconnecting my phone everything became more real for him.
several previous customers whom I served coffee to over the years and even now, are supporting me wholeheartedly and helping me with jobs and contacts. I'm so grateful for this and I love my customers so much! If I miss anything from Seattle it will be my loyal customers. They have shown me that I am needed and very much loved: I always figured I was just another barista and had no idea how much of an impact I made on people.
my temp job here at Post Alley has also brought me a new fan base: the owner included. When the owner and her sister found out I am Jewish, they latched on to me. I adore my boss and her family and the feelings are mutual they treat me like one of the family and are not that excited about me leaving but are also very proud of me.
My year working here at Firehouse coffee also brought me a lot of joy and new friends. The owners are Korean so that helped with my language abilities and they've given me a lot of tips for surviving in Seoul as an expat.
September is just around the corner and my adventure will begin. I fly out on the 13th and who knows what will happen after that. I'm taking this one day at a time. The world is my oyster at this point and who knows, I may find the perfect partner while I'm there: whether it be a man or a woman I don't know. Either way, I'm positive I will have a happy ending. I also really appreciate all the love I've received from the vingle community. I love you guys!

Benefits Of Effective Visitor Management System In Commercial & Residential Premises
The moment we think of a visitor management system, it reminds us of the pen and paper procedure with a number of ledgers piled up in the security area, followed by the traditional practice of having a receptionist at the front desk to personally greet the visitors and help them to check-in. The scenario has changed a lot nowadays as we are syncing to our new normal post Covid-19 crisis. Presently, going digital no longer remains an option but is a compulsion to manage visitor management systems online to make our workspaces and residences a safer place for both the visitors and the hosts. Integrating a contactless and paperless visitor management system in our businesses and residences is not a far-flung idea from a sci-fi movie; instead, it’s as simple as just scanning a QR code or entering a pin in our smartphones to check-in a gate or a door. Above and beyond, it can be assured that the guests have a warm welcome even in the absence of a smiling host in a more convenient, fast and protected way. Besides acting as a receptionist, a virtual visitor registration system also enhances visibility, security and the ability to serve the visitors satisfactorily. Digitizing the visitor management process and coupling it with smart access control not only tracks everyone entering the commercial or residential premises effectively but also helps to track the exact whereabouts of the guest inside the premises. Importance of Visitor Management System In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, many commercial and residential buildings are relooking at their check-in procedures to reduce human contact in the lobby and avoid using shared items like doorknobs, pens, clipboards and check-in kiosks. Also, people are starting to understand that most of the threats to their building security comes from the visitors and hence it is the need of the hour to establish a strong visitor management system. On the other hand, there are many misconceptions about the Visitor Management System – like it is assumed that VMS is only about security which is opt for big businesses and involves a high budget to get it installed; the smart check-in system is for show-off and luxury; and so on. This article clears the myth and lists the benefits that businesses and residential premises can enjoy from instilling an effective Visitor Management System: Touchless, Contactless and Paperless Check-in The electronic check-in system allows visitors to check in remotely via their smartphones by scanning a unique QR code at the entry desk. Upon scanning, a browser will be launched and that guides the guest to complete the check-in process without any human assistance. Later the visitor will be granted permission to enter the premises after identity verification, as well as notification will be sent to the host about the guest’s arrival. This contactless procedure minimizes the risk of spreading any virus or disease and ensures the good health of the visitors and the hosts Increased Visibility and Strengthened Security Complete details of the visitor along with his/her photo will be logged online, once the visitor checks in a door through the smartphone. This enables the building administrator to have a track of every movement and real-time location of the visitor inside the property. By integrating smart access control, the visitor can be granted customized access to the designated doors to avoid unnecessary wandering and can track any suspicious behavior.  Visitor’s Privacy Protection and Data Compilation Be it a customer, a delivery person, a relative or a friend; privacy is important to one and all. Having an online visitor check-in process will safeguard the personal information including their name, contact number, email ID, purpose of the visit and so on. A digital check-in system is preferred over the conventional paper-based check-in system because of the fact that the visitors can’t see a written log of other people who have visited before them. Meanwhile gathering visitors’ data can form a potential catalogue for future marketing communications and helps to build relationships. Better Planning and Time Optimization Deploying a robust visitor management system allows the guests to book appointments and schedule meetings in advance to have hassle-free and quick screening at the front desk. Avoiding delays at the reception desk saves time for both the guests and the hosts and in turn contributes towards increased productivity. Low Costs and Easy Installation Procedure Contrary to the fallacy, installing a digital visitor management system in a commercial and residential property is an easy and simple procedure. As it deploys wireless access controls for visitor management, there will be no damage caused to the infrastructure and immovable assets during the installation process. Irrespective of the size of the business and building, a digital visitor management system can be opted by all because of its low cost and high returns in terms of safety, security and credibility.   Why Spintly Spintly offers various types of smart access controls like QR code-based, card-based, Bluetooth-based access controls to establish an effective Visitor Management System at commercial and residential buildings to make sure that the right people are in the right area. VMS enables the guests to enter the designated space, meet specific people and complete their planned agenda in a secured and professional way. Spintly’s contactless and paperless visitor management solutions coupled with smart access control system offers its customers to craft a safer, quicker and more seamless check-in experience for their visitors, further creating a great first impression. To conclude, employing an effective visitor management system is a win-win situation for both the visitors and the hosts!
How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
