Fashion is an essential part of my life. Without fashion, Jas wouldn’t be the Jas you know.
I breathe fashion, literally.
 
With a mom who dared and loved to wear tight mini skirts with leather boots at her young age (even when the society was still very conservative at that time),  it is no surprise where I got my passion for fashion from.
Ever since I had memories, I never failed to be one of the best-dressed girls in school, thanks to my mom.
I was raised to dress pretty, with styles.
My mom was my personal stylist, the best one I’ve ever had.
 
Coming to the States to study was a life-changing event for me in many ways.
Not only did I learn to be independent and more mature, I also became more style-conscious.
My values were changed. From Giordano to Forever 21 to Abercrombie & Fitch, Von Dutch, Ed Hardy, Diesel, Miss Sixty, Seven, Paige Premium Denim to Coach, YSL, and Dior.
My fashion sense and knowledge were also polished. From having my mom as my stylist to being a stylist myself.
 
To me, fashion is no something superficial. Instead, it is something about human life.
It is something that reflects and represents people’s daily life.
It is part of the modern history.
 
Like any other type of arts,
fashion is about aesthetics.
Fashion is about human.
Fashion is very personal.
Fashion is about a person’s personality and the image he/she is trying to present.
It can be deceiving,
but it is still art.

Life imitates arts, arts imitates life.
Fashion is about life and arts.
 
Like what was said in one of Jolin Tsai’s songs,
“人不愛美, 天誅地滅.”
After all, what is so wrong about making yourself and others feel good?!
What is so wrong about being a pleasant “view”?!
What is so wrong about knowing your physical asset and flaunt it?!
 
A person who cares about his/her appearance can also be knowledgeable in other things too.
He/she can also be deep.
The old stereotype that blondes/beauties have no brain may not be applied to today’s case.
 
I am not trying to say how gorgeous I am,
But, I am confident that I am fashion-savvy and not too bad looking.
So, does that make me a stupid and shallow woman?
Received two Master’s Degree of completely different majors from the prestigious USC and studied for 1 ½ yrs in the PhD program of UT Austin,
I don’t think i'm stupid.
Why all these degrees? I guess one of the major reasons is I want to prove to people that beauty/fashion does not equal stupidness. 
A professor can be a hottie too! (that is if I had insisted on continuing my phd study and received it…haha…)
 
Anyways…
Besides my mom (who loves the color green), the people I encountered also shaped my sense of fashion.
Lu, my good friend back in the TESL program, introduced me to A&F, 7 for all mankind, and Citizens.
Brandon, probably the most fashion-savvy guy I know, influenced how I felt about the color brown. 
Andrea, my best friend here, rite now, brought a whole new perspective towards the combination of “black” and “gold”.

Introduction - The Astrology of Time

The ancient Maya and Aztec astrologers studied the mysterious influence of the rhythms of the sky on earthly life. Everyone knows the Sun rises and sets every day -- this is the basic rhythm of life around which we set our clocks and calendars. What the ancient astrologers discovered was that other time cycles existed that were multiples of this basic day cycle. This fact was discovered about 100 years ago in Europe and these cycles (there are many of them) are now called biorhythms.

The most important time cycles in ancient Mayan and Aztec astrology are those of the day, 9-days, 13-days, and 20-days. Additionally, years are counted also, in groups of 4 and 13. Each day is then part of several other cycles, so no two days are exactly the same. Your Maya/Aztec horoscope below shows exactly where in each of the cycles you were born. Each category below examines a specific cycle and a specific aspect of your personality. Keep in mind that our personalities are complex and contain many contradictions. All of us present a different "face" depending on who we meet. The delineations below will reflect this, but they will also give you a clear picture of who you really are. The true value of astrology lies in self-knowledge, the first step to wisdom.
 
 

Your Most Personal Traits -- The Day-Sign of Your Birth

Here are your strongest and most obvious personality traits. The delineation below describes who you are and how you appear to others, at least on the surface. In Aztec astrology this part of is your horoscope is your Tonalli, or Day-Sign, the form bestowed upon you by the Sun.

WaterWater: You have very strong emotions and feelings that are easily aroused. Sometimes these feelings are so deep and so intense that they can take over your personality. You have very strong territorial drives that often operate openly with little conscious resistance. At your worst you may display compulsive and addictive behaviors, including abuse of power, sexual obsessions, drinking, and use of drugs. On the positive level these emotional drives cam lead you into deep commitments and persistence in achieving goals. Whichever way your emotions lead you probably has much to do with your early childhood experiences.

It is very possible that you have psychic abilities, or have an interest in psychic phenomena. Undoubtedly this is something that stems from your unusually strong feelings and reactions to things. Many Water personalities become artists who produce sounds and colors from their souls, not superficial illustrators or imitators. Even if you are not an artist you probably have a vision that you will attempt to realize during the course of your life. Whether psychic, artist or visionary, you are driven by forces that most people have no idea even exist.

You also have a need for recognition that is both a blessing and a curse. If circumstances allow you to exercise this part of your nature legitimately, as a performer or artist, then you are probably very successful. If circumstances work against you, then you could drift into an unrealistic or even potentially dangerous life-style.

You have an uncompromising quality that pushes you toward great success in career matters. You are an extremist and do nothing halfway, yet this is often what it takes to be at the top of a profession. You have a strong, independent mind and are capable, and very willing, to solve your problems by yourself. Although you may have some initial problems handling responsibility, control over your powerful feelings will bring out the leader in you.

You are likely to receive recognition for your accomplishments, whether these be positive or destructive. As you struggle to control, or at least monitor, the nearly uncontrollable urges surging within, you will undoubtedly achieve much. The important thing is that you channel your energies into constructive and productive area.
 
 

Your Deeper Self -- The 13-Day Week of Your Birth

Each of us reacts to the world around us in different ways. Our reactions are mostly unconscious; they represent what our deeper self needs. Our reactions both attract and repel us from things, people, and situations. What we like, what we like to do, and who we really are is shown by the 13-day week called the Trecena that we were born under. Each of these periods begins with the number 1 and the name of the day-sign that starts it. A number is attached to your position within the 13-day period that may be an important number for you.

This is the second day of the 13-day period beginning with 1-Rabbit. Beneath your surface personality you are a competitor and fighter. This may not always be apparent to others -- until they get to know you well. You secretly love a confrontation and will take risks in life to create them. You are clever and forceful, but you do have serious emotional weaknesses that you must overcome before you can achieve the success you seek in life. You prefer a life of excitement rather than one of routine. If you can meet your competitive and active needs in a non-destructive way, and you probably can, you will find happiness.
