My name is Simeon Lee.
I’m not quite sure why I built this website. Some would consider it to be cumbersome to write blog posts, display portfolios of projects and accomplishments, and otherwise reach out to the rest of the world when – more likely than not – nobody is watching.
I was never one to keep a diary. Although there are merits of recording the past and reflecting upon long-gone mistakes, I tend to live my life with my eyes forward. This website is most likely not a diary.
I live for accomplishments, but I was never the type to post about them on Facebook or other social media for the world (i.e., my limited universe of friends and acquaintances) to see. My personal opinion is that accomplishments are for the self, not others. Of course, validation from those that inhabit one’s personal circles always feels nice. Either way, this website is not just a list of my goals and accomplishments. The thought of a website built just to glorify the self… how gross is that?
Instead, this website will most likely be like a poster or flyer I hang up in a hallway. Not very romantic, but this is a WordPress made by a student of finance with an accounting background. Like a poster, some people will pass by, see some useful information, internalize it and be on their merry way. Others will ignore it completely – fine with me. Posters aren’t useful to everybody, after all.
What will be on that poster? Oh, a little information about me. Maybe some reflection about recent news. Pictures I took, or maybe even just pictures I like. Maybe this will evolve (devolve?) into a more professional version of a Tumblr blog.
My secret hope is that I work hard in everything that I do, create a little bit of useful information that may be relevant to somebody out there in the world, and maybe get a couple of readers. Ideally, I’d like to spark some intelligent conversation and not embarrass myself in the process.
More about myself: I am currently a student at the University of Southern California in the beautiful city of Los Angeles. Right now, I am a fourth-year undergraduate in the Marshall School of Business, where I have taken classes heavily slanted towards finance and accounting. In addition, I have had the amazing opportunity to earn a one-year graduate degree in the Master of Accounting program, part of the Leventhal School of Accounting. I will be graduating with both an undergraduate and a graduate degree in May 2014.
