Some of you may not know that I co-founded a functional lingerie company many years ago now called, Dear Kate. I decided to pursue my dreams to be a singer/songwriter, but I will always whole-heartedly believe in everything the company stands for.
The newest ad campaign featuring real tech execs in underwear has been labeled as “controversial.” I believe that success and femininity are no separate! We can be smart, confident, and girly all put together! Now THAT is a definition of beauty I’m proud to uphold. So let’s take some pictures and join the movement! #NotControversial 你們有些人也許不知道，多年以前，我和朋友創立了一間公司，叫做 “

This is how I’m trying to motivate myself today.

I have been spending too much time on what is urgent and not on what is important. First and foremost, I am a singer and songwriter. Also being an entertainer, avid social media poster, and an entrepreneur, is a means to an end. So why have the responsibilities that spark from those roles taken over my life? When did music become my second, third or even last priority? If I have no good content, I am not a musician! So here’s my goal for the next 6 months: MAKE TIME EVERYDAY FOR MUSIC!
I respond well to rigid guidelines and due dates, so here is my FIRST PRIORITY for the next…let’s start with ten days. After these ten days we will reevaluate.
The Mandarin class I took at NTNU was two hours a day, and I improved by leaps and bounds! Hopefully making a commitment to do these six essential music skills for a minimum of 2 hours a day will force me to make music a priority. I can’t wait to get back to basics and work on myself. See you all on the other side.

I’ve moved so many times and reinvented myself even more times than I’ve moved. I’ve lived in Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taipei, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Minnesota, and now I’m back in Taipei; did film and theatre, then economics, then finance, back to theatre, started a company, dabbled in design and fashion, theatre again, and now I’m pursuing music. Every time I look back on each chapter of my life, the memories are shrouded with a flurry of seemingly overarching emotions or events. Essentially, I end up remembering the entire period of time I spent in one place, whether it’s a month or seven years, by a short defining moment or powerful feeling.
Being a part of the Stoughton STARS’ production of RENT is only one patch of this quilt of memories that make up my life, but it’s a bright one. One I hold onto desperately to somehow justify that I am worth being taken note of, worth taking a second glance at, “Hey so and so important person, I’ve played my dream role Mimi in my favorite musical RENT.” Because maybe if I’m good enough to do that, I’m better than I actually think I am. In reality, I wish I could do it all again. My friends took video recordings of me, and years later, I’ve never even seen them. I’ve improved by leaps and bounds after going to music school, and I lost forty pounds, so I think back on those four months and cringe. But one thing I constantly forget is that I had to start somewhere. RENT made me realize that there is nothing I enjoy more than singing and being on stage. But most importantly, I made indisputable friendships that I will cherish for a lifetime.
I couldn’t have done any of this without each and every one of my fantastic cast members in RENT. You loved me, accepted me, and believed in me, even when I did not. We were like family, and each and every one of you will always hold a special place in my heart. Yesterday, David Jose, our Collins, passed away from cancer at the age of 26. I wasn’t very close to him, but he made a mark in my life. As Jake posted, “I’ll never forget the day he auditioned and we were just standing there in awe. We had no clue how lucky we were.” David, was always smiling, had a voice like an angel, and was one of the most fearlessly funny people I know. I’m sorry I let the bad memories overshadow the simple, good times, I’m sorry for not keeping in contact, and mostly, I’m sorry I forgot the lessons that Jonathan Larson taught us, the ones we belted at the top of our lungs– “There’s only us, there’s only this. Forget regret, or life is yours to miss. No other road, no other way. No day but today.” David, thank you for making me laugh, thank you for being in my life. You will be missed.
I woke up at 5am and couldn’t go back to sleep, so here’s what I wrote:
My heart is racing through the night
My body’s breaking down
My vision’s slowly blurred to white
My hair is falling out
My sweat is beading up with fear
My mind’s on overdrive
I’m on the verge of losing what
Is keeping me alive
Wake me from this hellish dream
Where it’s beautiful and green
Save me now
Fill me up with gasoline
Tie me up with knots
Dunk me in an icy lake
Bludgeon me with rocks
Plug me in a socket quick
Jolt me back to life
Don’t hesitate to drop me from
An overhanging cliff

Oh procrastination can be bliss…
Every Tuesday I spend an hour and a half with some incredibly talented songwriters and wordsmiths. Last week, we decided to have several 5 minute long free writes based on different words or phrases. Here was my favorite of the bunch:
Flowers red now rot
Time has ticked away
Tape the boxes shut
Memories have decayed
Unhinge all the doors
Let the wind sweep through
Hear my last encore
All my love for you
