very cute and simple!
 
Indoor Tulips . . . Step 1 - Fill a glass container about 1/3 of the way with glass marbles or decorative rocks. Clear glass will enable you to watch the roots develop . . . Step 2 - Set the tulip bulb on top of the marbles or stones; pointed end UP. Add a few more marbles or rocks so that the tulip bulb is surrounded but not covered (think support). . .Step 3 - Pour fresh water into the container. The water shouldn't touch the bulb, but it should be very close, so that the roots will grow in.

+Chris Nieves hey! So we had to trade in the 2013 and got a 2014 (error in paperwork in our favor!). Does the grill fit a 2014 Sonata? Either let's meet up soon, talk cars, maybe diner?

Introduction
UPDATE 3/2014: finding my style, finding my voice and growing some "balls" is what's in store for this year.  After passing the bar exams (finally) and leaving my job of 14 years, I finally feel like I'm starting to find my stride, professionally.  I'm gaining confidence at depositions and becoming more secure in my writing.  I'm looking forward to growing a client base and really kicking butt this year! Sorry that it's been a bit sparse lately but this "being a lawyer" thing is taking up a lot of time!  happy reading :)

Original Background
I feel like I've been on the longest trek.  I am a first generation Korean born in South Philadelphia and raised in Montgomery County (might as well be Philly imo).  Thought I'd be "a doctor" when I first went to college (William & Mary) and after a huge disagreement with Orgo II (i.e. Organic Chemistry II), I decided to return to my violin (I started lessons when I was 4).  I was accepted into Temple University's School of Music only to have it taken away from me after a bad car accident in 12/98 (see below).  Due to my injuries, I lost my music scholarship and couldn't pursue my dream of being a concert violinist (I still get the chills when I hear Dvorak's New World Symphony).  Also, a few years ago, I broke my L/index finger (the bone under my nail was crushed into 4 pieces and I needed surgery) and it has been difficult trying to get my fingers back into shape.  Thankfully, 20+ years of playing the violin has kept some muscle memory but it's difficult, and at times, a little painful.  After my accident, lost my job and after sending out 30+ resumes, ended up as an overflow typist for a law firm.  

I never thought the law firm life was for me but due to an amazing boss/mentor (yeah there were a few bumps in the beginning), I decided to go to law school after finishing my undergraduate degree (yerp, took 12 years but I finished!).  I attended the part-time/night program at Rutgers University School of Law (Camden) and finally finished my schooling in 5/2011 (16 years!!).  

I passed the PA bar exam in October/2012.  I recently left my job of 13 years (Margolis Edelstein) and left my boss/mentor of 14 years.  I started working as an attorney at a new firm (The Chartwell Law Offices) on May 1, 2013.  A lot has changed and I'm nervous but excited to see what the future will bring.  While the work I do is called "civil insurance defense" work, I want to start doing some immigration work and give back to the community and my family.  

I am hopelessly in love with my pets (3 cats, yes 3 - miko, eva and oliver - and my dog, sophie).  The artsy side of me comes out a lot and sometimes I wonder if the logic of the law conflicts with my natural artistic side.  

Ok, to wrap up - I love pop music, Brittney Spears will always be my favorite, my husband and I met at a club in Virginia Beach, dancing while waiting for the bus, train, etc. helps me feel young and yes, I played World of Warcraft for a while.

I'm here to share my interest in food and learn from the numerous communities out there.    I primarily post pictures of food I've made, food I've bought, my pets and things I see in the every day (flowers, etc.).  More recently, everyone in my family (parents, brother and sister) added the G+ app and we try to conduct G+ Hangouts every Sunday.  Kind of like a family video chat.

Thank you for adding me on G+ and hopefully we can all get along!
