Happy Family Day long weekend to those of you who have it! It's been a while since I've updated, and it's only fair I let you guys in on the loop. I can tell a handful of you are wondering where I've been and why I've disappeared.
For those of you who don't know, I am a new high school teacher, and Pinc Stuff was started in my university years as a hobby. I learned a lot throughout undergrad, and it was nice to have a business running on the side while I was in school. However, since I started my first job, my students quickly found me online through youtube, and it was difficult to separate my online persona with my teacher one. I really had to make a decision and focus my time and energy into the career I've always dreamed of.
Update on the work situation, I recently transferred to a new school and I have to drive half way across the city every day. I leave ridiculously early in the morning, and spend my free time planning and prepping for upcoming lessons. My days are long, but I am very thankful for the opportunity. You have to pay your dues when you're a newbie!
I'm also teaching a business course: Entrepreneurship that I'm enjoying. I tell my students about my experience running a business, and bring it up as an example when we're discussing certain terms. One student asked me how old I was because I sound like I've done so much, haha! I said I ran my business while I was in school... I'm not THAT old... yet.
As always, I hope you're all doing well, and thank you for stopping by~ I wish you all the very best in your journey in life <3

Quick update: I've been really busy lately with super long days. Just thought I'd update you all after MIA for so long!
It's definitely been a rough week... at work and in general. There are always so many choices to make: what I want to do, and what I should do. Unfortunately, the two things I love to do, teaching and working on Pinc Stuff + related videos do not mix. I decided to shut the store down earlier this year because of work, that was something that had to be done. In order to be great at something, I need to really focus my time and energy into it. Although I'd love to work on many things, I knew I had to choose, otherwise I'd become medicore at everyhing.
Something else I've finally decided to do last night is to take down 200+ of my videos on youtube, especially the ones that are not Pinc Stuff related. The profession and career that I chose cannot mix with my onilne presence, especially with the clientele I serve. After thinking long and hard, I finally mustered up the courage to take down and erase something I truly enjoy doing, at least for the time being.
The past few years I've experienced a lot of personal growth, and really learned a lot running Pinc Stuff along side of getting my education and more recently getting my career started. Both I've worked equally hard for, but at the moment, I can only do so much.
There is so much I will miss, but sometimes it's easier not to think about it and remember the bigger picture.

Made some Pinc Mochi for the first time! (real and edible)
It was reallyy sticky and hard to handle
Long time no blog! A lot of updating to do, so don't mind the bits and pieces of things I chuck at you!
For the first time in a long time, I actually have the summer off. The last time I had a free summer was after 1st year university, which was the inception of Pinc Stuff. All the other summers were filled with summer school, part-time jobs, and volunteering. Last week on the 7th was Pinc Stuff's 5 year anniversary. I didn't host a giveaway like I normally would have because I was very unsure Pinc Stuff's future and next steps. It's hard to believe that I've been running Pinc Stuff for 5 years now.
The past year has been a year of tremendous change and growth for me as an individual. I was no longer a student, and as cliche as it sounds, I was trying to find my place in the world. I was trying to find out who I really was as a person, and where I was headed. I kept Pinc Stuff running the best I could, except when I had to work in Korea over the summer, and when I landed this teaching gig 3 months ago.
With my newly discovered faith in God and Jesus, I feel like I have a better sense of where I am headed, and want to say thank you to each and every one of you who have stuck by me (like the mochi I made!) every step of the way. After getting my hands busy making PInc Stuff again this afternoon, I realized how much I missed making Pinc Stuff (really), and decided that I want to reopen for the shop this summer.
Thank you again for your encouraging words and kind messages, I appreciate all of them!
