I’m so glad AP agrees with me

A little while back, I wrote about how the term Oriental offends me. Well, I am happy to say I’m not alone. Actually, I already knew I wasn’t alone, but I am here today to show you I’m not alone. One of my favorite blogs to visit is Stuff Journalists Like. The latest post was about […]

A long time coming…

‘Cause we all just wanna be big rock stars And live in hilltop houses driving fifteen cars The girls come easy and the drugs come cheap We’ll all stay skinny cause we just won’t eat And we’ll hang out in the coolest bars In the VIP with the movie stars Every good gold digger’s gonna […]

The best things Sammi said in 2008 (according to her)

Another year is coming to a close and that calls for a moment of reflection and introspection. So, in true journalist form, I’ve done a little backtracking and have looked back on what I’ve written since I started this blog back in April.

For those of you who have been reading my blog on a regular basis, you’ll know that in my more recent posts, I’ve been discussing my Asian American background a little more than usual. It was even the topic of my last post (I’m not counting my Updates post). So, in my normal fashion for whenever […]

Orient Express, the quick and easy way to offend: Minority Report part 1

Aside from my name and the variations that people have come up with from it–and believe me, there have been plenty–I’ve been called many things throughout my life: shorty, shrimp, midget girl, squirt, George, Asian Power.
