About Me

Hi, my name is Gretchen and I am an in-betweener.

I exist in between childhood and adulthood, naiveté and maturity, spontaneity and responsibility.

I am a starter of many projects, and only sometimes a finisher of them.


(I wrote this book ^^ You can purchase it here.)
I’m between Asian and White, split my childhood between different countries growing up, and I am constantly, constantly between hair colors.

And I live on that lovely plane that exists between straight sized and plus sized clothing.

I am exuberant and awkward, enthusiastic and neurotic, extroverted and introspective, cautious and carefree, and… well, I think you get the picture. I could probably constitute an entire dictionary’s worth of antonyms and contradictions all on my own.

Now, some other facts you were just dying to know about yours truly:

I am 28 years old, I work for Yelp (and have the best job in the world), I am truly obsessed with Harry Potter, and my entire world is run by two adorable miniature schnauzers.

You’ll be seeing a lot of Harry & Daxter in these parts.

Once upon a time, this was a weight loss blog, which helped drive me to lose sixty pounds and discover even more about myself. I hit some bumps along the way, and ended up gaining back the weight I had lost, so I’m currently back at it, trying to unearth my healthiest self.
