Day 14: A hero that has let you down. (letter)

I don’t have heroes.

Chicago Music Awards, my highlights

This post is ridiculously delayed, but hey – better late than never. Anyways, yes, such a thing does exist. For 30 years, Ephraim Martin has been organizing the event, and this year’s Chicago Music Awards took place at Excalibur. Since I was hanging out with the MIW folks, I didn’t get a chance to see … Continue reading

Day 13: A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days (write a letter)

Dear Mariah Carey, Where do I even begin? You’ve been with me since my pre-pubescent middle school days (yes, those awkward years), all the way through high school heartbreak and the craziness of college, up to my adult life. How can I forget those first number one hits and having you introduce me to classics like … Continue reading

Day 12: Something you never get compliments on

You know what I never get complimented on? My hair. That’s probably because it’s been a hot mess for the past 12 years.

My top 3 Superbowl ads

It’s crazy that 24 hours haven’t even passed since the Superbowl yet, but I already feel like this post is very belated. Anyways, here are my favorites from yesterday. If you need my to explain these or any other ads further, just let me know – I’m really good at that. 1. Chrysler’s Detroit Ad … Continue reading

New Chrysler commercial has style

I LOVE this commercial. It makes me want to be glamorous and arrive in style. I think I’ll wear red lipstick tomorrow, since it’s apparently my American birthright…

Day 11: Something people seem to compliment you the most on

Finally, back to some real questions! This one’s easy – my breathtaking beauty, of course! Ok, in all seriousness, one thing I get complimented on is that I’m a hard worker. Maybe it’s that immigrant work ethic, but I just don’t mind working hard. I also believe in paying my dues – I’ll do grunt … Continue reading
