CURIOUSER AND CURIOUSER
Tell me about yourself.
For starters, I like conversations more than interviews. Say hi or start here!
What does jayemsey mean?
Say it out loud, slowly—it’s my initials! The reason I chose this name for the blog was pretty simple: my parents had zero creativity and gave me the most generic name possible*. This has resulted in a ridiculous amount of time and energy spent trying to find a combination of letters and numbers that isn’t unavailable. My nickname has always been Jenny, but sometimes my mom refers to all three of us by our initials: JMC, MMC, KMC. So to keep all my usernames simple, consistent, and easy to remember, I chose the phonetic spelling.
*I was named for two of my grandmothers and I love that. It’s just not ideal for personal branding/Googling. Sorry Mom and Dad.
what ethnicity are you?
I'm third-generation Chinese-American. Some people try to get really creative (I've heard Hawaiian, Filipino, Vietnamese, Malay, Korean, Cambodian, Thai, and strangely, Mongolian). No, my sisters and I don't look anything alike. Yes, we are all full Chinese and related. No, I wasn't adopted. Or so I was told.
