About Me

I’m a struggling NYC-based writer that hopes one day to be a non-struggling NYC-based writer.

Like everyone else in the world I had a plan:

1973 – Get born (check)
1987 – Get into prestigious high school (check)
1990 – Get into Ivy League (check)
1996 – Get into First Tier Law School (check)
1999 – Join white shoe law firm (check)

(I started to get off schedule when I left the firm after two months)

2000 – Marry high school girlfriend (thankfully, no)
2002 – Get rich young (not so much)
2004 – Have first child (nope – not that I know of)
2007 – Make partner (have to be in a firm for that)
2008 – Have third child (mathematically impossible)

2073 – Die a happy old man on some sunny beach (on schedule!)

Life never does work out the way you expect it to, does it? Right before the turn of the century, some things happened to make me re-adjust my plan.

Then again after. And again. Life keeps throwing me those curveballs.

But it’s ok, there’s a divinity that shapes our ends, Rough-hew them how we will. (V.II.)

I’m old enough to know that, after everything that gets me off my schedule, there’s a “thank god I didn’t…” moment when I realize that I’m on a better one. Somehow, this blog became a summary of my, admittedly strange, dating life.

But somehow, on the way to meeting Ms. Right (whom I did) I ended up somehow becoming a better person. And it continues to be a work in progress.

So, here’s to rough-hewing it then.

(Also, here are another seven if you’re really bored)

  1. Hey…cool site. We kind of have stuff on our sites like yours. Well, yours is more appropriate for our blog: http://isHotr.tumblr.com

    It's more about things that we think are cool. Maybe we can share some pictures or links with each other. Or if you don't mind, maybe we can take some pics off your blog and reblog them? thanks.


    1. Sorry, I just saw this comment now; you can subscribe by hitting the RSS feed icon on any of the entries or on the upper right hand corner of this page (it's the thing that looks like soundwaves coming out of a speaker).

  2. You can tick "Get rich young" if you allow grateful readers to give you a dollar for every hour you save us from the stupidities of the iTunes hollow stars…

  3. Its quite easy. Here is an example of someone, like you, who gave me help with iTunes.

    You will find, half way down the left hand edge, these magic words…
    Did my program help you? Please consider a donation through Paypal!
    Then there is a little Paypall Donate box.

    I gave him (her?) US$5 as a thank you present. I would have done the same for you. Believe it or not, although many web users expect everything for nothing, there are still plenty of us who are happy to say "thank you" is a financial way.

    Note: Just to remove any suspicion, I have nothing to do with Teridon nor Paypall…

    1. Hi – thanks! Actually, while the link looks cut off, it is actually clickable. I'd def check that out and I appreciate all the help!

      Actually, in lieu of a donation, I could always use another positive review for the book I wrote – it's a bit violent but it's crime fiction if that's your thing. And it's only $0.99 now! http://tinyurl.com/7p94f64

  4. Sadly I am not a Kindle person. I sincerely hope my suggestion is worth considerably more than $0.99 …!


  5. Glad to see my picture of me as The Red Skull made it up here! Thank you. My father survived Auschwitz, so this costume for me is really embracing some of the horror of Halloween and a fun Marvel bad guy all at the same time.

  6. This is extremely exciting, You happen to be a great constantly professional blogger. I’ve truly registered a person’s rss feed and show off in advance to inside the search for excess of the outstanding write-up. Additionally, We’ve provided your blog around my social support systems

  7. In your honest opinion and from your observations, do you think that asian women in most (not all) asian women/white men relationships are generally less attractive than asian women in asian women/asian men relationships? This is what many people have noticed but I would love to hear your honest and blunt opinion based on what you have seen. It is known that most white men in aw/wm relationships are less attractive than those in white/white relationships. If you think this question is too controversial to post, I would appreciate it if you emailed me your reply. Thank you and I love your blog.

    1. Hey – thanks for the kind words.

      Hmmm, I don’t know how to answer that because everyone has a (very) different idea of attractive. For me, I’ve seen some mixed race couples where I have no idea why one person is with another; other times, I think it’s a good fit. There are some people that want to have an Asian partner if they’re not Asian and that’s an overriding concern. Everything else – looks, intelligence, wealth – is secondary, that’s true.

      But we can change the word “Asian” to anything else and the same would still be true – “wealthy partner,” “powerful partner,” etc.

      That’s why there are so many supermodels that marry billionaires. Attraction is not a choice, people want what they want. And what is attractive to one person is definitely not necessarily attractive to another. Does that answer your question?

  8. Based on your idea of attractiveness, do you think the asian women involved specifically in aw/wm relationships are generally less attractive than those involved in aw/am relationships? Do you see more of those “good fit” couples or more of those not so good fit couples? In other words, in general, do you personally find the women involved in aw/wm or aw/am more attractive? Because based on personal experience, many of these aw/wm relationships that I have witnessed are dysfunctional and based on rather shallow reasons.

    1. Well, as I said, “[f]]or me, I’ve seen some mixed race couples where I have no idea why one person is with another; other times, I think it’s a good fit.”

      To put it bluntly, some are quite attractive to me, others are not as much.

      As for you, while some may seem dysfunctional and based on rather shallow reasons, no one ever really knows what goes on in a private relationship because we all have our three lives: public, private, and secret.
