Marching to the beat of her own drums, Roseanney Liu shares her first half-life memoir You did WHAT now?! that details many experiences that shaped who she is today - a straight shooter giving and tolerating no BS, able to see the humor in most things, and a boundless curiosity and energy that enable her to explore the possibility in everthing that piques her interest. You did WHAT now?! gives detailed account Liu's close encounters with wild animals that almost cost her dearly, why certain teachers she had as a youngster were fantastic, her oh-so-many jobs that finally landed her where she is happy today teaching and writing, how her independent nature was fostered in childhood that's led to bravado and strength in adolescence and adulthood. Included are lists of random things in life Liu loves and finds annoying, as well as a few short essays on different topics ranging from parenthood, encounters with strangers, hot topics in media, and charitable work.
