December was life-giving. It was a good time of holiday fun and rest. Taking inventory of the year is one of my favorite things, and it was nice to see how hard and absolutely fulfilling the year was. I am SO thankful to see 2018 come to an end, and am filled with energy for 2019. Living my solo life has its lonely moments, but being around my chicago fam was a good reminder that there are many people who are there for me and vice versa. I am also struck by the reality that I get to pursue art and things that really energize me - that is an incredible honor and is also birthed from many privileges. Thank you for supporting me, because you, my patrons have had a big part on making the hustle life less stressful. Thank you also for engaging with me and rooting me on!

This year was the 6th annual #tiffanywongartmas! Wow I can’t believe its been so many years. I REALLY loved doing it this year, because collage work was something I’ve always wanted to try - and it was fun to finally do it. For 2018, I decided to revisit the whole year starting from january and talk about what shaped me. So I went through the year and presented articles, people, events that gave me inspiration or energy to address social justice issues and my identity. Unlike other years, it didn’t feel as overwhelming and I enjoyed it probably the most this year. Here are some pieces from tiffanywongartmas.

I reread this recently and if you aren’t familiar with this - please read this.
Jenna and Wes (I like to refer to them like they are my friends haha) have a conversation about media and sex. They talked about the new Netflix series called “Sex Education,” which I watched and absolutely loved. I liked how they were able to articulate how critical it is for media to approach sex in a inclusive and intentional way.

This play reading moved me really deeply - to see an all asian cast addressing topics that are so personal to me was really healing and incredible for me.
