Better Home – Better Life
Who Am I
My name is Millie, I’m an English- Korean interpreter and turned my love for cooking and home decoration into this blog during the pandemic.
What I Do
I believe that home is a place where you can relax and recharge. And I’m here to help you make your home the best it can be, so you can live your best life.
I’m Millie, and here is my story
It feels a little weird and bizarre to write a full page about myself. Actually, it took me a while to come up with these words, I asked myself lots of questions, like who am I, what I do, and what I want to help.
And this is kind of like the hardest “examination” I’ve taken in my life – an examination of how well I know myself. This page is full of the TMI sections. So if you want information for your next home product or home decor idea, you can hop over here instead.
The Story Begins
When I was young, I was an ordinary girl with few words. My routine is nothing but a repeated circle of going to school and getting back home.
I remember when I was 12 years old, on TV, there was a TV channel that broadcast Korean songs and let the audience vote so they could make their favorite song air.
That was when I stumbled onto something that I really enjoyed for the first time. Unlike most of my friends my age who loved to go out, most of the time, I stayed at home to teach myself Korean so that I could understand the meaning of the lyrics of my favorite Kpop songs.
In addition, I’m into watching videos of smart home tours and household items from Korean Youtubers.
With a passion for the language, at the age of 18, I chose to study Korea Studies during my 4 years of college.
During those 4 years of study, I had the opportunity to work in large and small companies. And a typical example that can be named is Samsung.
I was 22 years old, and after graduating from college in 2020, I decided to move to another city to apply for a job with a Korean company as a Korean-English interpreter.
At that time, for me, this was my dream life: to work and earn money while speaking my preferred language.
But things didn’t go well…
I got a stable job while being able to earn a living, but all I can feel is…
Even though I worked hard and tried to be satisfied with what I was doing, I barely felt the fulfillment.
I wonder what the reason was…
Thinking about the future made me drained of energy.
And everything started to change in the summer of 2021...
During that time, I had to work from home due to COVID-19 hitting really hard where I live.
But thanks to that, I had more time to focus on myself.
I watched a lot of YouTube videos about self-development and I started to figure out why I was never happy with what I was doing.
Then I started over with my original hobbies—watching and learning about home decoration.
I used to spend a lot of time looking at and researching home products and decor ideas for my own home since I believe that the living space will directly affect the quality of life.
So, with the knowledge of what I know about home products and home improvement, I want to help people get a quality of life while not having to spend a lot of time figuring out which product is right for their home.
This leads me to why I started this blog.
If you’re looking for information for your home decor ideas or new technology products, you’ll find a wealth of knowledge here related to the best products and lots of how-to articles that make upgrading your home easier than ever.
If you’ve made it this far, I sincerely thank you for taking the time to learn about my story.
