Dealing with mental overwhelm and external stressors can trigger unbalanced behavior and thoughts. Just today, I had a hard time focusing on work because I allowed overwhelm to take over, so I literally took 10 minutes to give myself a break and do some grounding meditation.. the rest of my day after that was way more productive ‍️

J.Crew is my favorite clothing store. Their clothes are pricey, but I wait for good sales and buy their staples. I have bought used also. 80% of what’s shown is J.Crew. Many pieces are 5+ years old and still in good shape. • I have built a good wardrobe and am content. I hardly shop now. • I double checked my expenses and it seems I didn’t spend any money on clothes for myself in 2018. I know such a bold statement. Maybe I am missing a charge? • One thing is for sure, I don’t feel the need to buy. People can change! • #taysstyle3

Kapwa, Pilipinx psychological term for shared inner self with others. The obligation we have towards fellow beings. As a First-Generation Pilipinx-American Millennial, I identify with she/her/hers gender pronouns, and also have a history of mental health issues and have learned to navigate “success with distress.” I want to develop a space for those that identify as Pinay, womxn of color, and allies to be vulnerable and share experiences of how we try to achieve success with distress through personal, professional, and holistic wellness. DM me for more information or if you would like to collaborate!

Dancers perform at the Festival of Asian Cultures from May, 2014 in Albuquerque. This city is diverse...60% of the population is something other than white/Caucasian. I’ve always found it a place that isn’t merely tolerant of diversity, but quite relishes it. #newmexicotrue #albuquerque #505 #newmexico #abq #asianculture #asianamerican

Weekly Article Today’s topic is about “The history of Asian Americans and their activism at Yale.” In short, the article talks about the stories of many Yale students, from the past to current, and how their actions — such as the establishment of the Asian American Students Association (AASA) & the Asian American Cultural Center (AACC) — have strengthened the solidarity within the AAPI community and contributed to the large growth of diversity at Yale University in CT.

Stuff like this from the Asian-American community completely grinds my gears. Not this meme in particular, but the attitude towards those who don’t know much about a particular culture. “Hurr Durr stupid white people don’t know culture xD” is a cancerous response and mentality to the problem of cultural ignorance. Educate, but take away the smugness and “evil white man” attitude from it. - J - - - Partners: @vasi.space @asianwingism @ricewingism - - - #asian #asianactivism #asianactivist #asianconservative #asianrepublican #asiannews #desi #pinoy #hypebeast #asians #asianamerican

Words Unspoken: A Memoir | Rain | A rainy day is a mood, and in SoCal it’s been quite the rainy winter. I feel like rain understands me, in a way. Do you know what I mean? | If you are wondering, this is a personal social media campaign that featuring my writings and photography in hopes to share stories related to depression and mental health. I am not the most eloquent writer but my goal is to simply share and provide a narrative of my own experiences (which is an Asian American perspective on navigating mental health issues) to decrease stigmas and stir more conversations around the topic. If it touches you or resonates in any way, I would love to hear from you and know your story . . . . . #WordsUnspokenAMemoir #poem #poetry #rain #mentalhealthawareness #depression #mentalhealth #anxiety #art #asianamerican #poemsofinstagram #reflection #story

As writers, we create characters molded according to who we are or what we’ve gone through in life. In most cases. And we shape these characters. We can make them happy, carefree, livid, hilarious, silly, naive, wise, broken, empty, fulfilled, and a million others, because perhaps, once upon a time, we were one and the same #celebratelife #cestlavie #writersofinstagram #authorsofinstagram #fobolous #rainnemendoza #asian #asians #asianamerican #pinay #pinoys #myfavoritethings #freelancewriter #writer #anntaylorloft #cutelovestory #kindlebooks #kindle #barnesandnoble #ebook #asianbooks #asianamericanstories #inspirational #chickflick #fashionable #girlpower

Grateful for the leadership and insights of Kevin Doi, Mike Park, @prayingpilipino, @irenemcho, and Jane Hong. I loved reading and finding myself nodding my head in agreement. I keep saying, “Yup, that’s me,” and “Wow, others too?” I also enjoyed the conversation topics suggestions and further action steps I can take with my youth group. I am also thankful for @jenbentheten for championing this voice and @macypdavis for helping to design this resource from cover to cover. #fulleryouthinstitute

Asian RED WHITE AND BLUE 🇺🇸 • • LA is the perfect place for me. It’s a melting pot of so many different cultures and different kinds of people and I love it! Although I am obviously Asian, I grew up in a small agricultural town in Santa Barbara County surrounded by mostly white and Hispanic people. I’m what some would call a “banana” or a “Twinkie” (white on the inside and yellow on the outside). I never really felt like I fit in and on top of that I was homeschooled my entire life. So when I first moved to LA I was awkward AF lol. I mean I’m still awkward, but at least now I embrace it 🤓. Anyways, just felt like sharing..tootles! • @agoodspot • • • • • • • • • • • • #asianamerican #chineseamerican #redwhiteandblue #meltingpot #ilovela #losangeles #alittleaboutme #blondeasian #asianblonde #reddress #whitehair #bluelight #jade #photography #photograph #dancer #actor #model #mystory #picoftheday #happywednesday

** MEET THE ARTISTS ** "Growing up in a blue-collar suburb of Detroit, I rarely saw people who looked like me in media or the arts. (Or anywhere, to be honest.) "People are quick to tell marginalized groups that if you're frustrated with representation in comics, movies, etc. you should create your own, but it's an incredibly difficult road that's not for everyone. There isn't much support, and the truth is that the challenges of being an artist (which are significant no matter what your background) are magnified when you're a minority. Asians especially are more under-represented in American media than any other ethnic group. "But I do what I do because it's important work. I believe in it. And I'm trying to be the person I needed when I was younger." - Raks Geek founder/director @dawnxianamoon Chicago: Join Dawn and the rest of our majority Asian-American cast on Feb. 8 at Raks Inferno.

MEET THE SEADRIFT CHARACTERS: After the shooting in Seadrift and subsequent murder trial, tensions continued to escalate in many fishing communities. In Seabrook/Kemah, the KKK patrolled the bay brandishing semi-automatic rifles, showcasing a person hung in effigy. This got the attention of civil rights lawyer Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center, who convinced the Vietnamese community to file what would become a landmark lawsuit against the klan. Dees recounts this critical episode in SEADRIFT, which effectively sets about the gradual easing of tensions across the Gulf Coast. SEADRIFT will premiere Saturday 1/26 at 11AM at Slamdance 2019.
