I'm Chinese (it runs in the family) but I get asked about twice a week whether or not I'm Hawaiian. One time, after I answered No, someone asked me if I was sure.. wtf!? haha! People have also suggested that I am Hispanic, Latin, Indian, and "Texan." And recently someone said that they appreciated learning more about my culture by watching Slumdog Millionaire. yeah. For the record, I don't carry an abacus around, am not great with math, I pronounce "Rolling Rock" with all the appropriate L and R sounds, I don't own either a nail salon or a laundromat (though if you do, i'd love a discount), and I don't walk around saying "Me love you lonnng tiiime." I can speak Chinese but not very well, and I can't do karate though I'm pretty much a card-carrying ninja (which also runs in the family).
I'm a huge Duke basketball fan (I went there for my master's) and enjoy going to the gym. Otherwise, I spend my time Grad Studenting, Binge Papering, Leading the blind, Pitying the fool, Being laid back, and Wandering Aimlessly. I've played the piano for 20 years, and I also bartend on the side. One day I hope to own a Sham Wow.
