Worth 1000 Words #12: Monochrome

Despite my complete lack of fashion sense, which is an affliction I have suffered from for the duration of my life, I watched Project Runway for a handful of seasons, binged my fair share of ANTM back in the day, and have seen enough episodes of What Not To Wear that I should genuinely know...

Lucille

One of the proudest days of my academic career was being placed in the "advanced" group after a reading assessment in first grade. As such, I was permitted to read books marked with a daunting "5." The most challenging books set aside for young, aspiring readers - the first small steps on the way to... Continue Reading →

The Dolphin Statue

Every day, on my way to work, I pass a house with a dolphin statue featured proudly in the front yard. It's a curious thing. I'm pretty sure it's made of wood. It's cute, and the dolphin looks friendly. But most of the time, when I glance out the window at it as I drive... Continue Reading →

Worth 1000 Words #10: Reese

On a Wednesday night in 2007, I received a cryptic text message from my older sister while watching the latest episode of Lost. The message contained only one word. Meow. Some time later, I was dozing off on the couch when my sister returned home and deposited something furry onto my lap. I opened bleary... Continue Reading →

It was Halloween weekend. My parents were visiting for a few days, and would be taking my grandmother (with... Continue Reading →

The Woodpecker

I have always had a complicated relationship with birds. I actually think birds are pretty awesome; I mean, they come in so many shapes and sizes! Penguins are the bomb, owls are rad, falcons are fierce, and hummingbirds are adorable. I especially LOVE pigeons; whenever I travel to different cities, I make sure to take... Continue Reading →

Writing Rewind #1: Wings of Fate – Prologue

I've mentioned my history with fanfiction in a previous blog post, and I've probably touched on some other early writing ventures, but perhaps the most significant of those endeavors is the 539 page, 285,000+ word anime-inspired sci-fi epic, Wings of Fate, which I wrote when I was a 14-15 year old "weeaboo" with lofty dreams...

B.A.P. Concert in Washington D.C.!

Let it be known, before I launch into this post, that I am not a K-pop aficionado. I do harbor a long-running deep love for J-Pop/J-Rock (Do As Infinity, L'arc-en-Ciel, Ayaka, Ayumi Hamasaki, Every Little Thing, Utada, FLOW, etc) and an appreciation for C-Pop and Mandopop (Jolin Tsai, Jam Hsiao, S.H.E., Mayday, Leehom Wang, etc), and...
