Trying something new!

So I guess this is where it all starts…

I am a happily married 31-year-old Chinese American living in Boston, who’s been to 5 continents, left the job that changed my life, and am now looking for financial independence ASAP.  I was born in Flushing, New York but grew up in a tiny town in Western Massachusetts, so you can say I am “white-washed”. Still like most Asian’s growing up, I grew up with a large extended family that was cutthroat, gossipy, and all about the “face”.  I want to share with a little about how I navigated through the pins and needles of being brought up in a very traditional Asian household, in a very “American” town, and more importantly, where I am going now and how I am doing it, with my own unique narrative.  These are just my thoughts and personal opinions.  I don’t mean to disrespect or offend anyone, and I am always open to input and thoughts.
