Blogging Goals for 2011

Writing

Writing is my zen. It’s therapeutic. Kinda like Fruit Ninja on the iPhone. I’ve been looking back at my archives for 2010 and I realized my blog sort of suffered. I posted when it felt convenient but this year I’d like to be on schedule, have a game plan, and blog consistently here and on […]

Welcome to the 30′s, Suki

Me in SF

They say life begins at 30. Truer words couldn’t have been said. Growing up wasn’t easy. I didn’t have the ideal childhood meaning I missed out on all sorts of pop culture trends and silly things like carnivals, riding a bike, learning how to swim etc so for the past few years I’ve been like […]

Family and Friendship = Chicken Soup for the Soul

Christmas Tree

It’s Christmas Day. Last night and early this morning, our family celebrated their first Christmas. It was an exciting time for us. We decorated our first tree, wrapped presents, and eagerly watched each other unwrap those gifts. It was also a bit awkward. Do you unwrap presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? Is there […]

Lesson Learned: Just Say No and Let it Go

letting go

It would be pretty easy to sum up this year by saying I learned a lot which is true however today’s #reverb10 prompt asks us what was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward? There is no canned response for that however there […]

2010 in 5 Minutes

First tweetup

Today’s #reverb10 prompt by Patty Digh is: “Imagine you will completely lose your memory of 2010 in five minutes. Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.” This year has seen me go from introvert to extrovert so let’s just start from there. My First Tweetup […]

One Year and 50 Books

Books

If you’ve ever come to visit me, you’ll notice my place is surrounded with books. They’re stacked up against the walls, on the dining room table, around the coffee table, in my bedroom and just about everywhere. No, I’m not a hoarder and neither am I messy person. It’s just that I’ve collected every book […]

It’s December a.k.a. My Birthday Month

xmas tree

It’s now 13 days into December. For the rest of you, it’s another month, a countdown to Christmas, or the New Year. For me, it’s a month long celebration (almost) to December 30th – my birthday. Since birth (a very exciting time for me) until about a few years, the occasion was simply celebrated with […]

Time to Hit the Gym. Yes, Really

Running

It’s almost the start of a new year and you know what that means. Everyone commits to being a better version of themselves from the previous year. It’s always a strong start and full of promise but somehow after a few weeks or even a mere matter of days, the excitement starts to fizzle out […]

Thankful

Thankful

Last Thanksgiving,  the family decided it would be a great idea to hold an intervention and discuss the taboo topic of marriage with me. If you know me, it’s a touchy subject.  There’s just no way I’m going to marry some random dude they pick for me.  It’s a little more complicated than that and […]

Reclaiming the “Queen of Happiness” Title

Dr Seuss book

Earlier this year (late April to be exact), I took a life changing course because my SoCal Mom Sandy told me too and she was hell bent on me being there. I saw the impact it could have on my life and dragged my BFF (Best Friend Forever) Trina in there with me. If I […]
