Going from dark to pink hair

Last year, I wrote a blog post titled, “You can’t go from dark to blonde in one day.” (Okay, I guess technically you can, but your hair will be all sorts of f*cked up.) When I wrote that, I was starting to lighten my hair so that I could eventually dye it pink. I get … Continue reading Going from dark to pink hair

I’m going to my 10-year high school reunion

*This was originally posted on November 17, 2016 in my former blog. The inevitable has happened: I got invited to my high school reunion. That means that ten years—an entire decade—has passed since I identified as a Menlo-Atherton bear. My immediate reaction was: damn, I’m old. Then, the questions that I’m afraid to answer: What … Continue reading I’m going to my 10-year high school reunion

Letter to my high school self

*This was originally posted on my former blog. Dear Elizabeth, First of all, you’ve come a long way, but I’m going to start off sounding like a daily horoscope of sorts because I think that if someone had said this to you back then, it would’ve really helped: You might feel trapped in many aspects … Continue reading Letter to my high school self

My first time on a plane

*Originally posted on my other blog.* When my dad dropped me off at the San Francisco International Airport (SFO), I was really nervous. He handed me my duffel bag and he may have given me an awkward hug. I should note that my family is not touchy-feely. We’ve never been one of those families who … Continue reading My first time on a plane

The time I decided whether to be buried or cremated

*Originally posted on my other blog.* The beaches in northern California are not usually warm. It's usually a sunny day and you think, today would be an awesome day to go to the beach. When you finally arrive, it's foggy, possibly windy, and the water is freezing. But if you're lucky, you'll be there on … Continue reading The time I decided whether to be buried or cremated

The times I almost drowned and the last time I jumped in a pool

*This was originally posted on my other blog.* I remember being in a pool with my family. I was very young and I was riding on someone's back because I wasn't tall enough to stand in the water. It was fun, but then I slipped off. The next thing I knew, I was underwater and … Continue reading The times I almost drowned and the last time I jumped in a pool

My dad and I like to sing to animals

*This was originally posted on my other blog.* I've been spending a lot of time with my parents lately. Not because I'm forced to, but because I actually enjoy it. It's funny because when I think back to my early twenties, I did everything shy of moving out to get away from them (I had … Continue reading My dad and I like to sing to animals

You can’t go from dark to blonde in one day

*This was originally posted in my other blog.* About a month ago, I made an appointment to get my hair dyed with Jackie, an old classmate and coworker, since she works at a salon nearby. My hair is naturally dark and like many others who experiment with hair color, I'm guilty of using boxed dyes … Continue reading You can’t go from dark to blonde in one day

Balance Beam

All I had to do was get on the balance beam, walk slowly to the other side, and hop off. That’s it. I was in my early twenties and had never taken a gymnastics class before, but my small figure alone should've been enough to make me a natural gymnast. At only 4 feet 11 … Continue reading Balance Beam
