About: A 22 year work in progress. I am a writer, reader, photographer, graphic designer, traveler, life-long diarist, and Jeopardy! champ in training. Well-versed in my knowledge of mid-century and current high fashion super models, small, cute animals (no matter how obscure), lame jokes, Miyazaki films, and TAL. This blog is a collection of musings and photographs of my life: past, future, and present

Oh yeah, guys. So lots of life happened and I live in Austin now. I promise I will start blogging again soon. If not about life, about the food in my life.

Big hair days are good hair days. 

Halloween weekend, one year ago. Also my first time in Austin.

I’ve been MIA in the blogosphere, but as I’m getting my life back on track, I’m hoping to catch up. I visited Seattle with my little brother last week, and on the day we left, Occupy Seattle had its biggest protest ever. The following posts will feature a few shots. This one was my favorite sign (and what a beautiful lady holding it, too).

The bunch we bought last weekend! We found a new man who makes some pretty yummy bao zis. I don’t like rice very much, but when it’s wrapped in leaves like these or of lotus (like luo mi ji), the starving child in me kicks in and I end up being able to eat a million and three.

Developed some summer photos but haven’t had the chance to scan yet.

Various tributes — all equally touching. I find it odd how affected I am, but in trying to understand why, I looked around at all the aluminum products around me, thought about how a good 12+ hours of each of my days are spent with the internet that has been extra enjoyably accessible because of him, and I found half my reasons right there. The word “revolutionary” gets tacked on and thrown around too often these days, but this man really embodied that entire mind and spirit. It takes a remarkable human being to elicit such visceral feelings from so many strangers. I don’t exaggerate when I say the world truly witnessed a very sad day today. At least, we can confirm, he made the future nothing but better and so extraordinarily brighter.

My little brother and I saved the image on Apple’s homepage right now and found that the file name is “t_hero.jpg.” An aptly named file indeed.

Truly, thank you.

Truly, thank you.

Fall finally arrived today!

Also, I snipped my hair last night — I think I’m about 8” shorter than what I had just two months ago. I’m still itching for a few more changes though. Which department in my little life will be my next victim?

First personal emergency care visit, first visit back to the hospital I was born in, first diagnosed UTI, first prescription filled at Walgreens, first consumption of prescribed antibiotics, and first (of many) giggles at my bright neon orange urine (because of the dye in my medication) later, here I am, announcing it on Tumblr as my first post back.
And I mean BRIGHT, golden poppy orange.
