If you know me at all, then you know that I’m an Asian woman. What does that mean? I have the dreaded, short, straight, pointing-down lashes. Thankfully they are pretty strong and relatively long (I condition them with castor oil). If I use an eyelash curler and waterproof mascara, I can keep them curled for … More My First Lash Extensions!
Let me start by saying, I am not affiliated with ThredUp at all. I am moving once again and decided it’s time to clear out the closet. I’ve heard a lot of different things about ThredUp and figured I’d give it a shot. The first kit they send you is free (it is usually around … More My First ThredUp Experience

My only plans are to spend the day immersed in really good books and hopefully getting another chapter or two written in my latest novel. Minor Update: Yes, I am still loving Scrivener and will likely be purchasing it to … More Cafes and Culture

I’ve heard writers rave about this software and one night when my hand was cramping from my pen and paper, I … More Trying Scrivener
Update: I’ve started a free trial of Scrivener (a writing software), and I love it. I’ll be posting an update post soon! If you’ve been following me, you’ve probably figured out that writing is one of my favorite hobbies. I never considered myself as a writer… I still don’t.

Often, people ask me how I do it all—a PhD, advocacy, reading, writing, Chinese lessons, exercise, socializing, taking care of my pets. When I hear that, I think to myself, “That’s not really a lot of stuff.” There are people with way more on their plate than me. There are people with way less time … More How I Balance Life
It’s been a long time! Time for a 50% photo-blog! I’ve been reading at a much slower pace, and I went on vacation so there was not much time for blogging.
