My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

What It Means to Be Me

"To be nobody but myself -- in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else -- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting." ~ E. E. Cummings ~ What does it mean to be YOU?

Wow! It’s amazing how parts of my life intersect. I wrote a post for my Successful Teaching blog this weekend about trying to be me and then I read this quote and prompt. Please click here to see what I wrote about Growing Up Chinese in an American World. Thanks for stopping by and reading!
