"I like highlighting things in my Kindle," I said. He laughed. "I don't get it, what's so funny?" I enjoy flipping through the physical pages of a book more so than clicking buttons and reading from a screen. At the same time, with a Kindle there's no fear of dog-earing or annotating a mint condition … Continue reading Push & Pull
lim·i·nal adjective 1. relating to a transitional or initial stage of a process. 2. occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold. Committing these past few months to words is no easy feat. I've often called this time of life my "transitory twenties", and it could not have been truer in this … Continue reading L is for Liminal
Short vlog of a date I planned for my boyfriend before he headed off to Chicago for the summer. 🙂 Our itinerary included a quick coffee stop at Joe & the Juice before wandering hopelessly near the SF Temporary Transbay station looking for the free Presidio shuttle (there's no sign at that stop, you sort of … Continue reading one spring day
"I view my own life in this lens of a character arc. That there are certain ways life is supposed to go.

"Please, I have so many trains of thought, people call me Grand Central Station" What's your geographic paradigm? A paradigm is a way of conceptualizing and processing your thoughts - so … Continue reading Trains of Thought
We're living in a digital age and we're as connected as can be - we get it. But do we? I spent a whole semester studying the impacts of technology on the socioeconomic development of China. I took a shot at making my 10+ page paper a little more digest-able. Here it goes! Part 1 The … Continue reading Let’s connect!
It was over dinner when I realized that I had become my friends' personal DIY consultant. One of my good friends (from my college freshman years!) asked me for help in designing a wedding proposal - not for herself, mind you, but for yet another friend. I found that amusing. He had this grandiose idea that involved renting … Continue reading Let there be light: DIY Glitter Letters
(That title sounds so clickbait-y, but clickbait is called that because it works, right?) I am seldom home alone when I am back in LA, but on the few occasions that I am, I like to invite friends over to sleepover so it's a little less lonely. Over my "winter break" (I never thought I could say … Continue reading Home alone? 3 things you need to know
Make it a great day or not, the choice is yours. This was how our middle school principal would close her morning announcements.
