About Jesse


In case you didn’t get it the first time you stumbled into my site, I’m Jesse. It’s actually Jesselou (yeah, that’s a real name) but I figured I HAD to make it a bit cooler, you know. Well, yes there’s that.So why the URL? It’s my name+a verb that essentially captures what I will do from this day forward: talk. And oh, I will talk.


Since last December 27, 2016 8:35 in the evening, I have accepted that fact that I am truly a jack of all trades but sadly a master of none. I sing, but only in the shower. I dance, but only if my job is at stake. I take nice photographs, with only a few Instagram posts to show for. I play the guitar, but have to review the chords every time I hold one. The list just goes on. But one thing that will always be in my heart, one thing that my fifth grade teacher convinced me I’m quite good at is writing (talking in print, if one must say).

So I blog. I pull out my phone and compose little poems when I’m sad. I loyally write up brief food and book reviews here and there.  I’ve maintain personal blogs for as long as I can remember. All the works.

When words escape me, I embrace them all the more.

So here we are, on the first day of 2017 with my first post on my self-titled blog (thanks to my awesome partner for making this happen). I can’t wait to share this year with you all. From personal insights on life, travel, food, and books–you bet I’ll cover everything there is to find.

I guess that’s it. Have fun reading!
