We insertVerbhere together relationships

I mentioned this to Rowena awhile ago when I slept over at her place and we hung out, but I’m reminded of what I said time and time again as I meet more and more people here in LA. I have this theory that the more verbs you can do with other people in your life, the more fulfilling, full, inspiring, joyful and deep the…

What I did for Lunar New Year 2017

My idea of a perfect weekend is good food, good company/conversation, good rest, some nature and if possible, no or less technology…. This past weekend for Lunar New Year was exactly that. I went to Arcadia to spend the weekend with my friend Rowena to feed my soul and stomach! I put in video form what the weekend consisted of. Vlogging is not very natural to…

First YouTube video of the year!

As mentioned in my last blog post, I plan to make more YouTube videos this year. For my first video of 2017, I wanted to re-introduce myself so I put together a 40 random facts about me video. I just noticed some editing mistakes (eeek) but I did give you fair warning that I’m not very good with editing video just yet. I hope you enjoy…

STTA: Saying “I appreciate you” more

I went to Atlanta this past weekend, for the Create + Cultivate conference and got back to LA early on Sunday. The trip was short (about 24 hours) but much needed, as it’s always nice to get out of LA. That time zone difference, weather change, switch in “vibe” always jogs my mind a little bit and shakes some perspective into my head. One of my…

Broken up but not broken

My rare specimen, you know the one I was in a long distance relationship with, and I are no longer together. It’s taken me a week to decide whether or not I was going to write about this but here I am. The days after it happened, whenever someone asked me “how was your weekend, how are you?”just casually in conversation, I said good/fine…. and I meant it….

STTA-Quarter Life reflections

I’m finally 25 after what seems like an eternity.  Here is a video of what I’ve learned so far and what continues to drive me moving forward. I’ve learned and grown so much in the short time since graduation and I can’t imagine what I’ll continue to discover in the year(s) ahead. Hope you liked the video! This video is dedicated to my rare specimen,…

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…

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:…

That kind of Woman

“You look posh” he said as he looked at the screen and showed me this photo. “Me, Posh?” I thought to myself. And there I was, caught off guard and caught in the moment. I barely recognize myself because I look so relaxed and comfortable with where I am. I’m just doing what I usually do- thinking- only this time it’s while staring off into the blue…

Share what you know, show that you care

With all the texting and emailing we do these days, it’s hard to tell what’s genuine and what’s not. (Did you know “a twenty-something may report spending two hours a day on Facebook, an hour a day answering texts?” (source)) At least in person, you can read someone’s body language or hear their tone of voice.  With messages, it’s easy to fake sincerity with just some punctuation and…
