Feeling burned out by real estate as an agent

Posted by on Tuesday, July 29, 2014,
While I was pregnant with my son, I took a real estate class and got my license to become a REALTOR. I joined an agency and my wonderful office took me in and showed me the ropes. I got my license in October, gave birth in February (4 months after joining the agency) and am now just slowly getting back into it in July (5 months after giving birth). Even though I've been in real estate for only 9 months, I feel really burned out. 

While I was pregnant, I showed some homes to a couple who were r...

Ranting because I'm bored

Posted by on Tuesday, September 17, 2013,
I am so bored at the moment. I think ever since I became a housewife 8 months ago, I've only been bored for a handful of times. Today is one of those days. 

The dishes are cleaned, my trip for this weekend has been planned and all I need to do is pack but I have three days to do that. 

I remember when I used to work for an office job, I would get really bored sometimes and actually google for ideas on what to do when I'm bored at the office. I would clean my desk, clean out my computer files an...

I'm of Vietnamese descent and I was born with double eyelids okay?

Posted by on Saturday, July 6, 2013,

A couple of years ago, my coworker asked me if I had something done to my eyes to get double eyelids. I was so shocked that she asked me that?!!! No one has ever asked me such a weird question about my looks before so I was caught by surprise, especially in a work setting. I was like "No, do people do that?"

She said "yea, a lot of Asians do it". I thought maybe she was being racist but the other times, she's really nice to me so I try to brush it off and can't blame her for being ignorant if ...

First time going to the indoor Magnolia Mall in Florence, SC

Posted by on Tuesday, January 29, 2013,
I went to the mall in Florence, SC for the first time a few days ago and for a little town, I was really impressed. It's an indoor mall so when the weather is crappy outside, you can still come inside to shop. There is also a lot of restaurants inside and outside near the area. If you are just passing by the city or staying for the night, stay near the mall. See all hotels in Florence, SC.

Things from the South that I don't see in Southern California

Posted by on Thursday, January 24, 2013,
There is so much about the South that fascinates me. So far, for the 3 weeks I've lived in the South, these are things I noticed that the South has a lot that West Coasters don't typically see:
Everyone calls me "ma'am"
Country ham
Cafeteria type restaurants
Piggy Wiggly
Food Lion

Posted by on Thursday, October 4, 2012,
I am at the one month mark before my wedding takes place and I am so stressed out.

My last projects include having my last hair trial, decorating party favors and completing seating chart/guest list for place cards.

Here's how I'm coping with my stress with now.
1. Venting to my fiance. He's been so understan...
