Interesting Fact: Naturally left-handed, as a kid my grandmother forced me to learn to write with my right hand. Today I have the handwriting of an angry cat and suspect it might be why The Joint Commission has an ever-expanding "do not use" list of medical short-hands.

Interesting Fact: According to my birth name, my first name technically should be spelled as "Ying". However, when I immigrated over to the United States at age of 10, both my passport and my green card somehow spelled it as "Yin". I didn't even realize this until when I naturalized into a US citizen at age of 18. So that's the story about how I lost the "-g" in my first name.
