Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Today is a new day...Happy Thanksgiving!

I've never thought of myself as an illegal immigrant, but these past few weeks have been agony as I wasn't sure my 'status' was going to be renewed. Just to let you know, my visa ran out on November 18th. Yes 7 days ago! But the I-94 was valid until November 28th.

If none of this means anything to you, let me translate. I am legal until November 28th and then I have 10 days to leave the US unless I get an work permit extension?@! So this past weekend and yesterday I was pushing on my boss and my company's immigration department to file the correct paperwork to keep me legal (aka please can I keep my job!?)

Thankful I was pretty close to being sought after by the US immigration department. Now I have status until seems long, but it ain't! Some of the hassle was self-inflicted due to me declaring I'm a 'manager' level employee, but in the eyes of US immigration I'm not. Whatever.

So, to stay strong I wondered what Bruce would do...? He'd play ping pong!
