Answers Part 2


Do you speak Vietnamese? Have you ever been to Vietnam? I understand Vietnamese but I don't speak it. I've been to Vietnam once. I plan on going again in 2014.

Are your nieces full Viet? No, they're half Caucasian. The funny thing is they speak better Vietnamese than I do, except it's more sad than funny.

Do you really wear certain outfits outside? Of course. It'd be a complete waste of time and effort if I didn't actually wear my clothes in public.

How does it feel or what is your experience when you are walking down the street, dressed the way you dress and knowing that people might be staring? I'm used to people staring at me, although I've never actually had a stranger negatively comment on anything I wear—not to my face anyway. Just remember to keep your head up high and your middle finger higher.

Favorite food? I'm a sucker for desserts and baked goods/anything carb-related.

Top 3 turn-ons and turn-offs? Turn-ons: Honesty, humility and humor. Turn-offs: Close-mindedness, lack of manners/common decency and excessive drinking.

Are you currently in a relationship? No, but I'm also not one to put labels on things.

Who are some of your favorite musicians/bands? Adele, Lauryn Hill, Lykke Li, Robyn, Sara Bareilles, OneRepublic, The Fray, The Script, Linkin Park, I could go on forever.

Life motto? Expect the worst, hope for the best.

Your favorite lipstick/lipgloss brand and why. MAC, but only because I have yet to experiment with other brands.

How were you as a teenager? I don't really remember. I was high for part of it... high on life, obviously. Side thought: Do you ever just sit there and marvel at how opinionated you used to be, and maybe still is? Age 15/16/17 and you couldn't possibly be wrong. It wasn't you, it was them. Adults including your very own parents just didn't get it. You were too cool. Now, you slap yourself on the forehead. Was it you all along who didn't get it? You thought you knew, but you had no idea.

Do you have any quirky hidden talents? Not that I know of.

Who are some of you personal icons/heroes? Aside from my parents, Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Harvey Milk, Ellen DeGeneres, just to name a few.

What's your most painful pair of high heels and how long can you stand and walk in them? I don't care what anyone says, I find the YSL Tribute platform pumps uncomfortable. That doesn't stop me from wearing them, though. I try to walk as little as possible in them. 2-3 hours tops.

What's the craziest thing you've ever done to your hair? I had my hair bleached and dyed half blonde, half black before, Cruella de Vil style.

Are you really getting a half sleeve tattoo? I have a consultation appointment tomorrow (Tuesday).

How would you describe your style? My style varies on different days. I don't think we should limit ourselves to just one.

Best blogger friends? Mae of thereafterish (E-BFF), Michelle of FVNCY, Christina of Profresh Style and Sharon of elisharon. Love these ladies. I get inspired by them on a daily basis.

What's your biggest struggle in life? Reminding myself that life is worth living. I'm getting better.

Where do you go from here? I haven't figured out the answer to that yet.
