    Lessons From My Past Jobs

    I am at a pretty stable job now and one I’m very fond of and I just started to realize what each of my past jobs has taught me. I’ve been thinking about it quite a bit recently because my job is fairly new. I’ve had 6 jobs prior to my current. A very wise person told me that each jobs is meant to be a stepping stone to help build you up until you reach the top which one which is your career. It blows my mind that I’ve had 6 jobs already, and those are all real paying jobs. That doesn’t even include my internships and volunteer experiences.…

    My Favorite Things About Fall

    Fall is officially here, it’s colder in the mornings and even colder at night. The sun is starting to go down a little faster. The leaves are still green, but they’ll change pretty soon. It’s slowly starting to get colder here in California and pumpkin spice lattes among pumpkin spice everything has fallen upon us. I had my first pumpkin spice latte yesterday and it was great. Less sweet compared to the previous times I’ve had it, but it was nice.

    What I Wish I Knew Before Moving In With My Boyfriend

    Intro Last year my boyfriend and I moved in together and we thought it was going to be amazing and it has been, but I wish I knew a few things beforehand. Finding an apartment together was tough, because we weren’t able to look together at most places since we were in a long distance relationship. That being said our move-in process was delayed a little however, everything ended up working out and I like how we ended up at our little home. Someone will ALWAYS feel like they are doing more for the other person and doing more in the relationship overall. I’ve read in articles in the past…

    The Struggles of being in an Interracial Relationship

    How many people do you personally know who are in an interracial relationship? One, two maybe three? Well, you might not think that an interracial relationship is completely different from dating someone who is of the same race as you, but it is. I personally don’t know of anyone who’s had a successful interracial marriage, but that doesn’t stop me from admiring those strangers who have made it work. Here are some daily interracial relationship struggles:  A family doesn’t accept you. You or you’re significant other are not accepted by the other’s family because of race or religion possibly both. There’s no way around it most of the time, parents are…

    Crazy Rich Asians Book Reactions

    Firstly, I read the book first and I wrote my reaction to the movie first because I know the movie was getting so much hype. Believe me, the hype wasn’t fake, the movie was pretty accurate to the book. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the book, I’ll warn you if I’m about to give a spoiler. Let’s get into this review! Plot I found the plot to be very engaging and although it wasn’t the best book I’ve ever read. I can say I loved the story since it featured all Asian characters with different backgrounds. I love that the author also showed the differences between Asians who are…

    First Day of My Last Day of School

    It’s so crazy to think I started my last first day of school for my undergraduate degree this past Monday. I can’t believe I’m 3 months away from earning my Bachelor’s degree. I can’t believe I’m so close to earning my second degree. My main goal for my last semester is to do my very best and earn the highest GPA I can. My mom didn’t finish school and although my father did I never had his support growing up. My stepfather has always been tough on me so earning my degree at the end of the year will be the most accomplished thing in my life to date that…

    Little Brother Adventures

    Intro My little brother, Dexter, is a 7-year old that I’ve raised from his newborn days up until the age of 5 years old. It stopped at 5 years old because I moved away to attend college.

    Interracial Relationships Struggles

    Being that I am biracial (half White and Half Thai), I always knew I was going to be in an interracial relationship. Throughout my few experiences with dating, and hearing about my close friend’s experiences I’ve made a list to share some of the struggles that people in an interracial relationship have more of a chance of going through compared to a relationship that consists between two people of the same ethnicity. I wanted to write this to bring awareness and to help people connect like myself who don’t have many friends who are in an interracial relationship. These struggles are in no particular order. I also just wanna say…
