ThirtyWON For A Polished Man

After celebrating my 30th birthday last year(check out that blog here), I had started to make plans for my 31st. Like Jackie Christie said in one of her many ponderosas, if you keep planning a wedding, you won’t have to plan for a divorce. So with that same zeal, if I keep planning for my…

But My Skin Is Black, Too

I recently released an episode on my podcast that touched my experiences being Black in Japan. On that episode, I shared three but only detailed two.

Warupan is here!

  Last month, while browsing through Facebook, I came across a video that caught my attention. This video was a short animated clip of a cute panda who bought bread which turned out to be bad. I couldn’t stop myself from laughing because it was so funny (well to me at least). I wanted more. I…
