Surprise Success Message on Soundcloud

Weird how you can read or listen to something at one point and the next time you read or listen to it, you see it with a completely different perspective. Maybe it’s age, maybe it’s wisdom, but I love that “whoa” moment I get when I revisit something I’ve already experienced before. It’s a sign that I’ve changed. This is how I felt when I…

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…

Serendipitous Uber Pool Adventures in LA

The other night I had dinner in one of the houses that line the Venice Canals with a very unique group of people. I’ve strolled by these magical and quirky houses so many times, but I never imagined I would be eating dinner in one of them. The way it happened is sort of weird and funny. The person who hosted the dinner with me…I met in an uber…

The way I love my sister

My sister started college this year the same way I started another “chapter” of my life here in Los Angeles. My sister is 18, 5 years younger than I am and sure, we’ve always had a sisterly bond, but it is now that I can say with absolute confidence that she is one of the most amazing people I have had the privilege to meet in…

What I love: Quora

I like to read. Some people like to read the paper everyday. I like to read Quora everyday. It’s one app that I use everyday alongside google maps and instagram. What is Quora exactly? Quora is a question-and-answer website where questions are created, answered, edited and organized by its community of users. The way I like to describe it: a reddit but for more… profound topics (at…

The Broad Museum- Opening Day in Los Angeles

Here’s yet another thing to add to your “LA to-do list”: The Broad Museum (pronounced like road) located in Downtown Los Angeles on Grand Avenue. Here’s a glimpse of what I saw on opening day. You’ll want to visit the next time you’re in town.

Exclusive interview with Pocket Sun, Founder of SoGal

24 years old. Pretty. Smart. Ambitious. Empowering.  As much as I’d like to say that I’m describing myself, I’m describing Pocket (Yiqing) Sun, founder of SoGal. I’ve met a few CEO’s in Los Angeles (there seem to be plenty who are younger than age 30) but what stands out about Pocket is that she was born and raised in China. Let me reword that for you:…

California is kind of perfect for me

I’ve been here for a few months now (it’ll be officially 2 months in a day or two)! At this point, I’m pretty sure the initial novelty has worn off. That being said, I think it’s safe to say: California/LA is perfect for me. (side note: if you’re not sure why I’m in LA in the first place, read my blog post on why I moved, here)….
