New Year

1 01 2014

I left my house last night knowing I didn’t write a post for the last day of the year, but I’m a low-key kinda guy, so I was okay with the blog ending on a small note (or I guess, non-existent note) than on some big extravagant thing.

And similarly, I thought I’d start off the year with a simple post. Yesterday, I spent the day revising a memoir piece about growing up and watching different representations of gay Asian people on TV and how that affected me. I submitted it to Existere magazine since their deadline was last night, and got it done. Felt really good about that, and it confirmed for me that I can in fact motivate myself to write and to keep writing and to submit my work when I’m out of school without assignment deadlines. Take that, no one.

So here’s to another year of even more writing, and hopefully getting a few more steps closer to assembling my memoir book.

Another year over

1 01 2012

According the email wordpress sent me, I posted 259 new posts this past year, which far succeeded my goal of 182 posts that I had set.

My goal for 2012: 280 posts.

This year’s already started off kind of dramatically.  I’m not going to post what happened, but let’s just say that it was a first of many things, in both good and bad ways.

It’s the year of the dragon and things are supposed to be awesome for me since I’m a dragon.  Let’s see how 2012 goes.

Be good to me, 2012.
