About Fia the 5-Footer

Hello, my dear readers, photo enthusiasts, and awesome friends.

If you are new here, my name is Fia, and yes I am a 5-footer. And please don’t taunt me with the “Oh are you really 5-foot?” question, or else I’ll side sweep your mind with wit opposite of my usually silly humor.

If you have been loyal with me for the past 4 or so years: thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continuing support and admiration, even though the very imperfect self went too aloof from the blog. Speaking of which, if you haven’t noticed, this is my new website as the5footer.NET.

The .com version has been taken by somebody or something that seemed to buy/took use of my domain like a fake friend backstabbing my heart. That’s fine by me; all the memories are collected and stored both within myself and the content from the .com site that I can easily transfer to the new site.

This reminds me of my favorite mythical creature, the phoenix. When it perishes, it will soon rise up from the ashes and be reborn anew and improved. In this case that’s my .net site.

Now to the hard interview-like question: how would I describe myself? The lazy side of me would tell you to read the “Who is The 5-Footer?” widget on the main page. The deeper self says, “I am a Californian who has been through innumerable accomplishes, battles, successes, hurdles, rewards, struggles, and lots of happiness to get to where I am now and reflect on these to forward on to my future.”

Born and raised in San Diego, California, I’ve been through copious duties during my waking days — too much that I’m only stating the important remarks. I graduated at California State University Long Beach with a B.S. in Microbiology. Presently I work in a pharmacy, and I reside in the northern part of Orange County. Outside of my day job I may be carrying my DSLR camera at the following: at a restaurant, at home, at San Diego, at an event, at the outdoors, at an arbitrary city or country — anywhere¬†whether alone or with my significant other, friends, family, coworkers, colleagues, media influencers, and/or animals that I wish to take home with.

Because of my openness to explore places, foods/drinks, culture, customs, products that bolster¬†— NOT create — personal happiness (such as locally sourced items or makeup to brighten my facade) my 5-Footer persona developed and it has been moving along with my blog posts, albeit the honestly large gaps between the previous entry and the newest entry from my former site.

If you’ve reached this sentence, I sincerely appreciate your time to get to know the basics of me, Fia the 5-Footer. You deserve a shiny 24k gold star — in your dreams though, since I’m no Taylor Swift or Beyonce when she was being conceived.

If you’re particularly a business who would love to work with me by trying and promoting a product, or attending a restaurant/event/retail store, feel free to reach me at my email: fia.the5footer@gmail.com.

Thanks again for reading, and let’s better our constantly revolving world by putting our best foot forward.
