Song of the Day

Jamie XX – I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) ft. Young Thug & Popcaan

Happy Memorial Day everyone! I just arrived home this morning from my long weekend in San Diego and already, we’re back in the grind.  I snuck a listen of this new song today and it’s really setting the mood for my lazy Monday. Why do long weekends have to end? It’s kind of how I feel about this song being on loop.

Performance of the Day

I’ve probably been watching all of Mariah Carey’s performances of Vision of Love/Infinity all week. This is the 3rd time at least! And it is still so so good. It’s a pretty good girl anthem by the way (if you’ve been looking!) We haven’t plugged any for awhile until now.

In Case You Missed It…

Taylor Swift – Bad Blood ft. Kendrick Lamar

Talk about some serious build-up, I feel like we’ve been waiting for this music video for over a week and the anticipation was only slightly killing us. I didn’t even see all of the celebrities that were featured in it. Meredith, were you even there?! It’s a pretty extravagant video, but here’s how we felt about it afterwards:

  • More than ever, girls everywhere wish they could call Taylor one of their girlfriends
  • Katy Perry, this song about you? If so, I think this is directed at you.

Late At Night I Think About…

Dessert! Boutique ice cream shops are all the rage right now, but I remember way back when I used to beg my Dad to just take me to the local Baskin-Robbins. Those were the DAYS! I watched this video and instantly became hungry. The internet is a dangerous thing sometimes.

The Hundreds Staff Interview: Alina

Every now and then I come across things on the internet about various people and I’m like “Yeah, cool they have traits like me. We have stuff in common” Then I come across this interview of some girl named Alina who I’ve never heard of in my life and I’m like “This girl IS me.”

We don’t look alike, but I’m pretty sure we’ve got the same vocabulary and that we’re the same person.

Saying Goodbye to Derek Shepherd

I actually stopped watching Grey’s Anatomy a very long time ago – like after the second season or something like that. Yet over the years (the show has been running for 10!) I’ve tried to stay in the loop whenever I could. When the first episode aired, I loved it. Finally, a show taking place in Seattle! Actually, it’s a pretty great series and I wish I would’ve continued. When I heard that Derek Shepherd passed away during last week’s episode, I decided that I just had to see the episode. Even though I got lost in the seasons, the relationship between Derek and Meredith was one that resonated closely with me. They had a great romance and in last week’s episode that I watched this evening, I cried puddles. Cross-legged on my living room floor (what? not even my couch, I know) eating my Chicken Noodle Soup from Panera and tears streaming as we said goodbye to Derek (yeah, both Meredith and I!)

This doesn’t make me want to continue the series or anything, but it was classy send-off and I really appreciated ABC for doing it the way that they did.

Psychology Behind Restaurant Menus

The Atlantic sat down with  FUDS: A Complete Encyclofoodia from Tickling Shrimp to Not Dying in a Restaurant author, Arthur Meyer, to discuss how restaurant menus trick us into making us hungrier and more loose with our wallet.

…tee hee author Arthur. I did that on purpose.

Natalie Tran – Asians in Media Talk

A few years ago, my brother introduced me to Natalie Tran’s videos and I found them to be pretty comical, but this is – by far – the most powerful video that I’ve ever seen from her and I’m really excited to share this with everyone.

Growing up, I’ve experienced having to answer every question under the sun about my heritage and the stereotypes that come along with it. The “where are you from?” question is one that I know all too well. In addition to “…but where are your parents from?” like Natalie mentioned, I’ve also gotten much more.

“You’re full Asian? But your eyes are SO big.”

“You must be really good at math.”

“Are your parents fresh off the boat?”

“Are your parents upset that you didn’t go on to be a doctor?”

“Do your parents speak any English?”

“Wait – say something in Vietnamese. Anything!”

It’s interesting for me to look back on my childhood and the types of things people expected me to answer. There were plenty of times when I received questions from those that were Asian that also confused me. “What do you mean you can’t eat spicy food? Didn’t you grow up on this?” “You only have a few Asian friends? That’s weird.” “If you grew up speaking Vietnamese, shouldn’t you still be pretty fluent?”

In the end, I think having to endure these types of questions has probably made me a stronger individual. At first, I felt pulled in a number of directions and naturally – it’s these questions that cause you to question yourself and who you are and who you should be. But we’re not alike. Not any of us. I don’t have to radiate “Asianess” to show that I’m proud of my heritage and where I came from. I want to show that in my actions and the things that I can accomplish. And goodness, it’s crazy to think of the things I still have to experience in 2015, but that just means that we still have a ways to go.

It’s important to know and continuously remind everyone through media or through our everyday relationships that not all Asians are the same and that racism does very much exist on both sides so let’s help each other out and just let people be who they are and be okay with that.
