3 things I do every weekend to stay grounded

Though I like to think that you should include some “me time” in your everyday, for a lot of people it’s the weekends that allow for it. I’m trying to get back into the routine of slow and early mornings as I get settled here in LA, but on weekends I make a big effort to refocus and recalibrate for the week ahead. I think it’s so important…

Why I write

There are a lot of things I could be doing, but I choose to write. Here’s why:

The Rare Specimen Vocabulary

I love words. I love vocabulary. I always have since I was younger (spelling bees and the reading section on the SAT were actually fun for me). I like learning the etymology of words and understanding the definitions. Lately I’ve been making up my own words, because sometimes there just aren’t words that already exist to describe new and incredible things/feelings. Since having my Rare Specimen (significant…

Thoughts on Soulmates

Remember when I made a friend in an Uber Pool car ride and a couple of weeks later we had a small dinner party together? We talked about soulmates that night. And the way she described it has changed what the word means to me since. (Soulmate. I know. It’s an intense word but I’m going to write about it). Cheers to special moments shared with…

Best Writing Advice

I wrote my 4th post on Quora! The question was: What is the best writing advice you have received? Read my answer here I’m shocked at how many views and followers I’ve already gotten on the platform. In just one month since I have started I’m at 128K views and 86 followers! Not that numbers really drive me, but it does feel quite amazing to have…

On my radar: Zen Pencils

Someone sent me a comic that described exactly how I felt. And then I spent the next few minutes clicking around the site that it came from. Usually when I click around aimlessly on a site, I end up regretting it but every moment spent on this site, Zen Pencils was totally worth it. They’re quotes in cartoon form. If you couldn’t tell, I’m kind…

Bruce Lee 75

Today, November 27th, would’ve been the 75th birthday of the man and legend, Bruce Lee.  I haven’t watched all of his movies and I don’t know every detail of his life (though I did see “Kung Fu,” a play based on him), but I think it’s pretty obvious why I (among many others) respect, appreciate and admire him. Before he passed in 1973, the legendary martial artist played…

Interview with Daniel Wu, Actor and Executive Producer, Into the Badlands

Confession: I don’t watch much TV. There are a lot of new television shows that sound intriguing but none that I personally feel compelled to watch and/or continue to watch….  until Into the Badlands (Premiering Sunday Nov 15 at 10pm). At first, I was hesitant. In writing, ““Into the Badlands” is a genre-bending martial arts series very loosely based on the classic Chinese tale “Journey to the West.”…

What makes a (sexy) Man

What does it mean to be a Man in today’s society, where common courtesy is not so common and etiquette gets lost behind the screen? As a twenty-something millennial navigating the ever changing world of relationships, this question has popped into my mind more than once. What exactly makes a man (or person in general) sexy? Is it looks? Is it how much money he spends?…

Pay it forward

It’s only month 3ish of my LA adventure but plenty has happened since I got here. So much in fact, that it’s hard to keep up blogging about it. I spend a lot of time living it, then processing it, then doing it again… that sometimes I just don’t have time to recount the past events until much later. I hope you bear with me…
