My name is Sun. I'm 35. I'm a Korean American. I'm from Oakland, but I now live in Oregon. I'm a member of the LGBT community, notably identifying with the B part of that acronym. I am married to a truly amazing man, who I refer to as "manz" in this blog, mainly 'cause of that old phrase "my manz and them" which sort of signified your crew, I guess. He's the 1 man crew I got these days, and he holds it down, for sure. Anyway, more facts about me, I was a foster kid when I was in my later teens, coming out of the system before I aged out of it.
I was a middle kid, and grew up in my dad's martial arts studio, surrounded by blue collar men, so I probably heard the word "Fuck" early on and I definitely recall hearing a lot of talk about women, and I think a lot of those experiences shaped me into who I am today.
What I've become: I know I'm a product of my upbringing and environment. The major thing to know about me is that I like breaking paradigms like Terry Tate. I like to be contrary and to break stereotypes wherever and whenever possible. What does that mean? I am a tomboy at heart. Sometimes I'm majorly conflicted. I'm a woman in her 30s with a teen aged boy living inside me. I love hip hop music, video games, comic books, football, action/martial arts movies, and your mom jokes. I also think that I'm very layered and a Jane of All Trades because...
Some things I've learned/grown to love as an adult: I love foreign and indie films. I love food, although I'm not a foodie, 'cause fuck that shit, I ain't that snobby. I love a lot of different kinds of music now, although of course, hop hop and r&b are always going to be my first loves. I love really good television, although for me that changes from time to time. I love a lot of shonen anime. (Weird that I came to like this as 30-something, and not younger, but hey)
I've been compared to the following:
Probably because of my lower pitched voice and sarcasm.
The martial arts training and the relationship with her father, I guess.
Likes to fight, also very sarcastic and direct. Also stubborn and confrontational at times. Check.
Violent, raised in "captivity" and major mommy issues growing up? Yep.
Hmm. That about covers it.
