because perfection isn't easy

Using only 10% of your brain is a myth. Do you know what happens when 100% of the brain is used all at once? Epileptic seizures.

Also, I have a huge problem with having the protagonist who lives in Taipei be white and having the antagonists be Asian or other POC.

I wish people wouldn’t just see me as the Asian girl who beats everyone up, or the Asian girl with no emotion. People see Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock in a romantic comedy, but not me. You add race to it, and it became, ‘Well, she’s too Asian’, or, ‘She’s too American’. I kind of got pushed out of both categories. It’s a very strange place to be. You’re not Asian enough and then you’re not American enough, so it gets really frustrating.

On Lives - Act II

The unauthorized post of me in the buff has been removed. A lawyer friend gave me the tip that as the person who took the photo, I own the copyright and can deny someone permission to publish it on their Tumblr as per Tumblr’s DMCA copyright policy. Here’s my tip: Don’t send an email through the Help Center, as the documents suggest. Instead, submit a DMCA Copyright Notification. I got no response from the Help Center but the photo was removed within two days after I went through Tumblr’s legal channels.

All websites should have DMCA copyright policies, and this has been a lesson for me to become familiar with them. I’m not promising miracles (because life isn’t fair), but this process has given me a happy ending. Maybe it can work for other people, too.
