a · soft · howl 

“All stories are about wolves. All worth repeating, that is…There’s escaping from the wolves, fighting the wolves, capturing the wolves, taming the wolves. Being thrown to the wolves, or throwing others to the wolves so the wolves will eat them instead of you. Running with the wolf pack. Turning into a wolf. Best of all, turning into the head wolf. No other decent stories exist.” – Margaret Atwood



A Soft Howl is inspired by a fondness for wolves and the desire to become a head wolf. Maybe this blog will be the telling of that story. (It probably won’t be)

For now, I’m a 20 something in New York City named Peggy Chen.

I spend most of my time consuming media in some way or another. I love engaging, connecting and analyzing pop culture as a form of social commentary. Part of this blog functions as an outlet for my thoughts about everything I watch and read as an Asian American feminist. The other part is me trying to figure life out while looking cool.
