Oh haha my hair is in my face

Hi there. My name is Chin. My full name is actually Chin-Hua Lu but a lot of people have trouble pronouncing the Hua part so I dropped it. 

I am a 25-year-old woman living in San Francisco, originally from Taipei, Taiwan.
I can eat surprisingly a lot of (good) food for my petite size.
I do so love dancing really hard and laughing really hard, sometimes even simultaneously.

I did indeed challenge boys to fights in first grade, and I won them all.
I would pick up playing video games again, but I know that would be dangerous.
I should have more role models and muses other than female figures in pop culture, but I can’t help it.

I have loved writing and reading ever since I was able to do so.
I could tell you more about myself, but you should just read this blog.
I will be putting down my various thoughts and stories here.

Yes, more and more I’ve been writing about dating and relationship and all that jazz, but that’s because I’m not qualified to talk about  stuff like how the environment is dying and international political conflicts. Read my published stories on the Bold Italic here.

You can look at my professional side on LinkedIn, read my bursts of words on Twitter, or contact me via dailychinups @ gmail.com. Send me a note or tweet- positive or negative, I would love to hear from you. If you have any questions or need any advice on a topic that I might be able to help you with, shoot me an e-mail.

I also write for the Mekanism company blog if you want to check it out.

If you’re interested in why I started this blog, please read my first post ever here.

P.S. Props to anyone who got the Boxers Or Briefs board game references.

  1. hi chin,

    i couldn’t find a link to email you directly so i guess this is the second best thing. a coworker linked me to your bolditalic article about yellow fever (great article btw), which led me to your information and this website right here, dailychinups. i admittedly haven’t read all of your posts or much of your pretty extensive writing history (i read slow while at work) but you seem like a pretty interesting person who has a good amount of things to say about a variety of topics. my question for you is, why didn’t you name your site dailychinlups, to slam even more of your name in your play-on-words blog name.

    very important.

    • Hi D, Thanks for taking the risk of reading my non-work related writings at your office. You can e-mail me at dailychinups @ gmail.com.

      The reason why I didn’t name this blog DailyChinLUps is because then I wouldn’t get all the traffic from everyone who was looking for exercise tips. No, JK. That would be a good idea if my last name is pronounced another way.
