Welcome to Try-Umph

Welcome to the first edition of Try-Umph! This blog is designed to provide some insight, practical advice, and words of encouragement as I chronicle my life. I contemplated over the name and I'm sure you're wondering why it's called Try-Umph. Two reasons. First, when I considered the purpose of this blog, I wanted it to be something more purposeful than sharing what dinner selections I made or what movies I'd seen. I wanted this to be uplifting, insightful, and maybe even lead readers to make some positive changes in their lives. Ultimately, I want this blog to push people to live a fuller and more satisfying life. I want people to try to live with some umph.

Additionally, the reason why I think I am capable of sharing uplifting and insightful pieces is because I have had to triumph. I have had to pick myself up and navigate through some difficult times. If I can encourage someone else to fight through the heartache and do the same, then this will have definitely served its purpose. I hope that something written in the coming months will lead you to try living your life with a little more umph.


  1. Heck yeah you procrastinated long enough! I love the name and I am behind you 100%. But you got one thing wrong - nothing wrong with chronicling food - as big as I am! Xo.

  2. Just for you, Joon, I may include some culinary posts once in a while.
