Hello friend. You've somehow navigated the internet's deep and strange waters and made it here. We're going to get to know each other really well. Let's start with some interesting facts about myself:
- I have a bit of an attention deficit that is both a pro and con for me. Pro: I explore anything and everything that I have a natural curiosity for, and my life is pretty interesting because of it. Con: I spread myself way too thin sometimes. But can you really have too many hobbies?
- I have been an "artist" (in the true sense of the word) for as long as I can remember. I played piano and flute for years, I drew, I painted, I sewed, I blogged, I knitted, I made jewelry, I "remixed" songs on a voice recorder, I sang and played keyboard in the church band, I made bomb ass mixtapes, I developed photos in a darkroom, I was always making collages in my bedroom for some reason. One of my earliest memories is my kindergarten teacher telling my mom that she should really nurture my artist side after comparing my crafts project to the other kids' (shoutout to Mrs. Brandon for seeing my potential at age 5 wow) ...to which my mom didn't really listen to because I was a straight A student and what Asian parent would encourage their child to pursue art when they could be a doctor with these kinds of grades?!
- I'm about that #avolife. Is it obsession? Probably more borderline worship. Yeah, avocados are amazing in every way and it is my lifelong dream to own an avocado farm like Jason Mraz.
I wouldn't really call this a blog because I don't consider myself a writer. It's just an outlet for me to express my thoughts, emotions, opinions, and maybe along the way, share something that will touch you in some way or trigger you to start your own journey of self-discovery. If there's a topic you want me to talk about, definitely let me know. I want this to be a candid and open conversation space, not a speakerphone on a podium.
Looking forward to getting to know y'all,
