[Day 836] Crazy poor Asians

I didn’t want to watch “Crazy rich Asians.” I tried to read the first book but gave up after a few chapters because it was obnoxious. It is filled with descriptions about how rich rich people are. What am I supposed to learn from that?

I also hated it that the first time Asians are represented on the big screen, it’s about the crazy rich. I can’t relate to them. Where are all my crazy poor, hardworking, discount-hunting Asian homies at?  Continue reading “[Day 836] Crazy poor Asians”

[Day 830] Princessy things to do

  1. I met a super nice guy with beautiful eyes and a great sense of humor but all I could think about the entire time was: “Why is he wearing those shoes?” It makes me feel pretentious.
  2. Scott told me the most princessy thing a girl has ever done to him was Continue reading “[Day 830] Princessy things to do”

[Day 823] Google X

Simon asked me to come to a robotics event with him at Google X, the moonshot factory. I was psyched — there’s such an air of secrecy around X. The only problem is that I wasn’t invited. Some friends at X asked around for me but unfortunately, the event was full (s/o to Nick and Stephen for being homies). Simon told me to come anyway. If I couldn’t get in, we’d just grab a drink.

[Day 822] Dance your way through life

Some friends messaged me that I seemed rather down in my previous blog posts. I appreciate their concern and I’m happy to say that the down phase is over. I’m doing great. I’m feeling great. I rarely have the urge to just lie in bed and do nothing. When that happens, it’s because I’m a bum and not because I’m sad. I even went on a date. I was so awkward that I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t want a second date, but this still made me happy. The butterfly feeling I had in my stomach before the date let me know that I can fall in love again. Continue reading “[Day 822] Dance your way through life”

[Day 815] A party at Jensen Huang’s house

Jensen Huang invited all interns, 400 of us, to a party at his house. He was as funny as ever. Everyone loved him, though watching him, I had a feeling that he should have a lawyer with him at all time. He was prone to jokes that, while hilarious, weren’t exactly politically correct. HR reminded us about a dozen times that everything was strictly confidential. They walked around telling people to put their phones down when things got out of hand.

[Day 813] Having nothing better to do

After work, I went to this semi cocktail party hosted by an entrepreneurship school in Menlo Park. These schools are everywhere in Silicon Valley. They charge about $5 – 7k for two weeks, without room and board. They attract mostly international startup founders and startup founder wannabes. I joined the husband of the lady who runs the school and his friend. I found out that this school, in particular, has had 4 courses this summer, each course has about 15 students.

“You’re doing quite well, eh?” His friend said, and the man chuckled. Continue reading “[Day 813] Having nothing better to do”
