My name is Irene Shih, living a post-post-graduate life and enjoying the dichotomy of being both poor and privileged. I am a writer aspiring to be (more traditionally) published, to share my affinity for reflective essays, fiction, poetry and plays. Above all, I wish to be read for having written things worth reading.
You are welcome to contact me with professional leads and constructive feedback.
Through this blog, I hope to indulge some self-important musings and scratch the creative itch (take what you will from the imagery). My writing will inspire you to laugh, cry, throw things – and quite possibly none of the above.
Be your body ready?
Haha nice choice in blog layout!
Completely inspired by you, sir. I’m as unoriginal as they come.
Loving your writeups. May all aspiring writers (like you and me) be successful and content within self 🙂
Thanks, Danial! Here’s to our artistic perseverance 🙂
Ok . . . slow down. Relationships take time. You seem worth it. The Ang Lee story is excellent. His photograph is haunting and beautiful.

I like you’re usage of “poor and privileged”. I feel I can relate. Anyways, I came across your 李安 文章 translation. I had actually read the Chinese version first before coming across your translation. I thought you translated it well. It’s an inspiring message. Hope you don’t mind but I posted it up on my blog http://www.mylast365days.com
Thanks! Poor but privileged really is an accurate self-description. I’m glad Ang Lee’s essay resonated with you, and thanks for crediting my blog. Feel free to peruse the rest of my blog as well!
Hi Irene, enjoyed your translation quite a lot. Can you consider facebook friending me. My name is Larry Shinagawa. I have been chair of many Asian American studies programs and am currently a researcher and consultant in DC.
I like your blogs design. Where have you been published?
Thanks, Jay. I haven’t published much yet — just through a few Harvard periodicals and online sites.
Awesome! A fellow aspiring writer 🙂 I’m going to follow back now.. Thank you for following my blog 🙂 Let’s talk writing sometime.
