<li>Honesty is important. There should be a balance in sharing honesty. That's where straightforwardness comes into play. The italics portions is my opinion. Scroll down for the relevant material. I like honesty and straightforwardness. Everyone likes to know the truth. I've often heard single friends wish that they knew who had a boyfriend/girlfriend- that they [...]

class, teach, compose, ultimate, maybe eat

I was navigating through Hulu today and I accidentally clicked on this short film. After it started, I thought, 'why not, just watch it?'. It's worth the 17-some minutes.

I’m a bad blogger

I haven't written in a very long time. Last semester, I arranged and directed music to an LSU theatre production of Maria Irene Fornes's Promenade , music by Al Carmines.

I'm on my way back to Baton Rouge after a week visiting my parents in Florida. My stay was actually cut short because of a strengthening Tropical Storm Fay approaching the bay area. With word that the storm system would strike on Tuesday afternoon, my would-be departure time, Southwest airlines posted they would honor adjustments [...]

Oui, soy un Berliner.

At the hotel in Denton, I was waiting for the elevator when a father of two, sitting in the lobby, yelled something in spanish at me. I turned around, puzzled. He asked if I spoke spanish. No, I'm asian. Oh. You look like you're from Vera Cruz. I'm from Taiwan. Oh. Okay. The elevator opened. [...]
