As the story has it, I woke up and found myself on the very opposite side of the globe – the flipside. I arrived February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d simply do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. I went from being just some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, wife, professional boxer, wife -- and now I run my own fitness company (Flipside Fitness) and am starting my own boxing club!!!
Life on the flipside is nothing like what I ever thought it would be… it’s better. It's fabulous!!!

Ok... so I wasn't exactly kidnapped but I WAS told I had to go out with them. A bunch of ultra cool K-boys that ooze of humor and smell like teen spirit insisting I take a break from my work, work and more work schedule that's been consuming. I wasn't going to argue with them.
I pretended like I was being kidnapped while some of them pretended we were on a big group date with all them dating just me. Typical Korean guys are all about doing things for their girl, like carrying their bags and paying for their food and that's exactly the same manner they showed me. I didn't have to lift a finger and it was nice. When it got chilly outside on the outside deck we were on, one guy took it upon himself to wrap my legs in a blanket while another got the waitress to add more hot milk to my coffee. I felt quite spoiled but the icing on the cake was when one of them insisted he lift my coffee cup up for me to drink from... hahaha.
Ahhhh... gotta love my K-Crew!!!
When I joked with Snickers, asking him if he was jealous of all these men tending to me so attentatively, he said, "No". And when I asked him why not he responded with, "Because I know I can knock them all out and you think that's hot". He wasn't serious with his answer but his answer was somewhat right. His one-punch knockout rate isn't why I'm with him but I do think it's hot. My husband is hot.

Spilled my beans to Junior Mint today… “you know how I mentioned to you that I’m dating someone, well, that someone is someone you know.” I told him and, needless to say, my comment was followed by a million questions from Junior Mint. I told him who I was talking about, not before I made him pinky swear over it though… hahaha. Both Snickers and I agreed that we should keep this relatively on the low at the boxing club because of various reasons, him having an upcoming fight and many members not knowing about Q and my split is just the few. Snickers’ coach is all “anti-girlfriend” towards Snickers and so we’re waiting till after his fight to tell his coach. In June/July, Snickers’ coach will be opening up his own boxing club here in Cheonan and so Snickers will be training and working there. We figure this will be the appropriate time to make our little announcement.
So there you have it. Today, May 14th, 2013, marks the fifth year anniversary of our first kiss and how did we spend it, you ask. We spent it at our boxing club, training together and then training others.
