Hey there and welcome to my blog!

I have noticed that I tend to learn how to do life by trial and error. Probably not the most productive or effective way to learn, but none the less, that’s the method that I keep resorting back to. In an attempt to chronicle the hysteria of my life, I have created Hey Heather Mei (pronounced like may)! You can expect my blog to be that drawer in your kitchen that collects a bunch of random knick-knacks that can’t find a home in your lovely abode, but are paramount in certain instances. Such as the almost out-of-ink ink pen you need to sign a check, or the 2-year-old peppermint you grabbed on your way out of a restaurant that’s now needed to make your breath acceptable in public.

Essentially, my blog is a compilation of writing and photography inspired by the daily encounters I have with those that surround me. And while these experiences may seem frivolous at first, in the long run, when they are all strung together, they become the fundamental building blocks of my life. Which to me, is worth documenting! Unlike many beloved kitchen drawers out in this world though, I will try to make mine a little more organized for us!

My blog is split up into three categories:

  • An Experience...
  • A Thought
  • How To

My hope is to articulate my thoughts in the most organic and unapologetic way possible. Thanks for reading!

Panel 1


Hi! My name is Heather Mei (pronounced like may) Wilson and welcome to my blog! I was born in China, and then adopted and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska. I love floral prints, a good mango, and dancing to anything with a beat. I believe that effective communication plays an integral role in each person’s life, which is why I majored in Communication Studies with a double minor in Art and Psychology. I graduated from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln in August of 2016.

I have a passion for listening to other people’s stories and have found myself in love with helping the international community in Lincoln. My first year out of college, I worked as a Program Coordinator for a private Vietnamese high school foreign exchange program. In pursuit to continue working with international students, I am teaching English in Jiangshan, Zhejiang, China for 9 months beginning in August of 2017. Afterward, I plan to pursue getting a Master’s Degree in Higher Education Administration! Where at is yet to be determined.

Awhile back I read this quote that stated, “Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them.” I made this blog to capture those little and big moments in my life, and am so excited to share them with you!
