Hey everyone,

Welcome to Apples and Celery, a personal blog where I post my thoughts and pieces of writing! My name is Richard Peng, and I’m a student at Princeton University studying Psychology, Theater, and Creative Writing. I’m Chinese-American, male-identifying, and short, all of which I have been sources of insecurity at some points in my life. However, in coming to terms with who I am, I’ve also been constantly learning about what’s most meaningful in life. I’m hoping that through this site, I’ll be able to share some of the insights I pick up.

Please feel free to look around, I update periodically with new works.

Thanks for visiting!
