"It didn’t stop you from writing it. As if every thought that tumbles through your head was so clever it would be a crime for it not to be shared. (Erica Albright, The Social Network)"
I haven’t blogged since high school, back when xanga was popular. Oh dear, am I dating myself?? I guess it’s okay because I’m Asian, so I’ll always look young. LOL, you mad bro?
Seriously, though, my good guy friend encouraged me to start a lifestyle blog focused on fashion as a precursory activity to attending Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising - FIDM, for short - in LA LA land. While I definitely have my own sense of style and opinions about fashion, my first round of posts (to be continued indefinitely) will feature my thoughts and ideas about important, perhaps even controversial or taboo, issues that I think many people don’t think about or discuss enough. I’ll also highlight other interesting and entertaining topics such as food, traveling, healthy living, exercise (love me some power yoga!), sports, education and career opportunities, and relationships (etc.).
Confident in my most important 2010 new year’s resolution, ‘learning to be comfortable with myself,’ - although this resolution is (and will always be) an on-going process - 2011 made me discover that I have a voice, and more importantly, an obligation to use my voice for the greater good.
I’m utilizing this blog to present my unique perspective, share life experiences, offer advice, encourage critical thinking, and engage in self-reflection in hopes that you change old habits and/or adopt a new lifestyle for your own well-being. This blog is not supposed to be didactic or judgmental in connotation, but informative and motivational. As the title suggests, you are welcome to have and form your own opinions, and I urge you to either ‘take-it-or-leave-it’.
So with that disclaimer, I look forward to posting for your reading pleasure. Here’s to the start of a new and exciting adventure in twenty-twelve!
