Yakitori at Akiyoshi in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan

I’m going to smell like grilled meat forever. Not complaining.

So I’ve had this reoccurring headache that I can’t seem to rid. In case this is the end, just know that I died doing what I love: Whining online about a minor inconvenience that affects only me.

I think it’s a story that many Asian Americans will tell, which is that their families don’t really understand that a creative job or life is something you can even pursue. […] As a reaction to that, I actually shut myself off from the Chinese community and my family for a long time. I rejected it, because I didn’t feel like they accepted me for who I was—a creative person. On top of that, Americans didn’t really accept me as part of their society and culture because I was Asian.

If I was willing to risk getting run over, I should’ve shot this properly by bringing the camera lower and dialing in the focus. Next time.
