1. I am woman, hear me roar!!!
  2. Green is still my favorite color, but I’ve come to appreciate blue.
  3. The love I have for my family and friends will outlive me, this world, and every anything. This, does last forever.
  4. The library is my first love, and books (especially non-fiction) will always have my undivided attention.
  5. Penguins are forever my favorite: birds and the hockey team.
  6. Still got mad love for the windy city, Beyonce, and mittens.
  7. I cannot whistle or wink: I have accepted that.
  8. I am a terrible singer: I will sing in my best cracked voice, in my own made-up lyrics, regardless.
  9. Yes, I am ridiculously skinny—always accepting fried chicken, sprinkled donuts, bacon, egg rolls, watermelons, and hearty soups. Ramen with a dropped egg is my all time favorite. No Hot Cheetos or Takis.
  10. Gerald is mine, super amazing, super loyal, and he turned one this year!!!!!!
  11. The beauty and character found in Proteas are unmatched by any other flower; thus, they’re my favorite.
  12. “Women, we are our own gatekeepers.” Some women fall, some women rise; however, I refuse to hate on another woman. I desire to connect with other women, to strengthen the incredible beauty that all women possess.
  13. I am so, so, so forgetful when it comes to my eyeglasses, keys, purse, and phone(s)… I think I’m forgetting something else too…
  14. “I don’t love studying. I hate studying. I like learning. Learning is beautiful.” -Natalie Portman
  15. I was once asked, “How do you unlove someone?” Tough question, because I don’t think you can. I don’t believe that love comes and goes. If I’ve loved you, I still love you. The love may have changed and muted by ten-fold, but the love is still there. My heart doesn’t know how to erase or go back in time- it keeps pumping for the seconds ahead. Crazy heart.
  16. “2+2=5!” Good laughs. P.s. I found it first bestie!
  17. Every winter is all about outsmarting the mitten thieves.
  18. Soulmates and life partners are not limited to couples. I have soul sisters and soul companions. Living just wouldn’t be the same without each one of them.
  19. The “good” Hmong woman (daughter, daughter-in-law, wife, mom, grandma, aunt, niece, sister…) does not exist, but the human life does. Hmong women exist, and that is not only more than enough, but beautiful.
  20. Psalm 139: 13-14, from my sister of Christ, before I even knew my Lord and Savior.
  21. My mom and dad help take care of my plants, indirectly teaching me about love, hope, and patience; I love my parents and their amazing souls!!!!
  22. Mistakes are healthy: they remind me that I am human and how perfectly imperfect (Thank you John Legend) I am. When I’ve recovered from one mistake, I am sure to make a new one, and that is okay.
  23. Jurisprudence.
  24. Spirituality ≠ Religion.
  25. 2014 was all about healing; 2015 is all about my emancipation. By 2016, I won’t stop roaring.
