Yes, springing forward doesn’t make the second week of March all that appealing. Luckily, however, Audrey has some thoughtful, creative, and literary opportunities for you to be thankful for the “extra” sunny hours on this month of the four-leaf clover.

Best Quotes of 2011.
“Teehee” – Youtube star Ryan Higa. Yes, this has been around before this year. No, it has not gotten old.
I am telling you. There is something going on with Asian Americans and dancing.
Everywhere we turn, there is an Asian American making a name for him- or herself in dance.
Need further proof? Filipina-Hawaiian-Russian American Nicole Scherzinger just won the 10th season of Dancing With the Stars.
She follows in the footsteps of fellow DWTS winners Kristi Yamaguchi and Apolo Anton Ohno. And of course who can forget the Jabbawockeez, Kaba Modern and all the other Asian American winners and finalists in MTV’s hit America’s Best Dance Crew.
Hear what some of the top Asian American dancers have to say about this growing phenomenon in our feature story “The New Rhythm Nation” by Teena Apeles in our upcoming Summer issue, out next week!
