The inspiration for this post came from an article I read "20 Awesome Things About Being in Your Late 20s." A lot of the things on their list, I was still trying to figure out or had no idea when I was in my late 20s. Surprisingly I know people I know who are my age (or older) that still haven't grown up in so many ways. Counting down just under 9 months before I hit the big 4-0, I'm realizing that I've come a very long way since my late 20s, but still have a lot more room to grow.
Growing up Asian in America was a very interesting experience. Growing up Asian in Kansas - THAT was challenging in so many ways. Back then, the only kind of Asian that existed in Wichita was Chinese and Vietnamese. Thailand wasn't even on the map yet.
