Happy Wednesday, friends! I’m kicking off this new midweek series where I’m going to share a bit more about myself. I’ve realized that while I do write a lot of personal posts, there is not always a ton of detail about me. So on Wednesdays, I’ll be sharing a few facts about myself that will hopefully intrigue (or at least amuse) you. And I hope you’ll share something about yourself too!

1. I’m Taiwanese-American. My parents are immigrants who completed college in Taiwan before moving to the States. I was born in California, and I grew up visiting extended family abroad– grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins– almost every year. I loved it, and I still love being bilingual and enjoyed having a bicultural experience growing up.

2. When I was little, my favorite color was green. I wanted green everything. For Halloween I wanted to be Tinkerbell a few years in a row. When I watched Sesame Street I decided my favorite character was Oscar the Grouch– because he was green. It’s one of those things that had no rhyme or reason. I just liked it. Isn’t it refreshing how children do that sometimes?

3. I am the opposite of a techie. While blogging has forced me to learn some basic coding, I’m really terrible about updating my gadgets or troubleshooting anything. I haven’t updated my computer in forever. My phone is more than 3 years old. And I’d rather not own a TV just so that I can avoid dealing with technological issues. I probably would have foregone college if my only choice was an “institute of technology”. In fact, my college room mate had specifically asked to be placed with a techie, and she wound up with me. Woeful disappointment. Thankfully, there are lots of techies in my family.

What about you? What’s something that most people don’t know about you? I’d love to hear about it!
