Quit Nguyen: Year One - Part 2

Part 1 was about me on the outside looking in. Part 2 will be more about my life this past year.

Wanderlust hit hard this year. KC, STL, ATX, HOU, Denver, and even random towns in OK.

Plenty of things happened in my own back yard too. Oklahoma City is growing faster and faster each day. I don't know how long it'll be til I hate this place, but for now, it's been treating me damn well.

I consider myself an ambassador of this city. People are always visiting Linda and I, and we feel it is our responsibility to show them it's not (completely) red necks and white haired oldies.

I try not to be a one trick pony. This is why it's not Quit Nguyen Photography.com or something like that. I bettered my design, drawing, tastes, and hobbies on top of improving in photography.

Toy collecting, record collecting, coffee drinking, cocktail sipping, hero drawing. These are a few of my favorite things. Such a fucking "hipster."

The Plaza District.

I got a sweet gig working for the neighborhood that showed me OKC was cool in the first place. This job lets me flex the part of my brain no agency would hire me for as a new graduate. Being apart of one of the coolest districts in OKC is really something I'm proud of. Working with this lady is pretty fun too.

I think the biggest thing lacking in OKC are "my" friends. The homies I went to school with. The homies I grew up with. My goal is to get everyone to move here. >:]

The Reason.

The reason why I'm here. The reason I have the confidence to do things. Her.

Never have I met someone as crazy, emotionally unstable, and pure of heart. (I lied, Mama Bui is just like her.) Her family took me in and made me one of their own.

It's been an awesome 1st year in business, 2nd year in Oklahoma, and 3rd year with you.

I love you.

And I luh all y'all too.

Here's to 2015, staircases in the air, and taking in a feral cat!

Bye, Felicia.
