There is only one very good life—and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself.
— Diana Vreeland


Hi, I'm Jessica Dang.

The idea for SINGLE GIRL DINNER occurred in 2010 when I was newly single. I'd come home from work at 10 p.m. and have a bowl of cereal (or something random of that nature) for dinner, which I lovingly called my "single girl dinner." I started using this term for these quirky types of meals and saw that other women were using it too. What began as a recording of what I ate when no one was around came to symbolize a sense of independence. 

If there were any place to learn about independence, it would certainly be New York City. I moved there in 2000, attended my "dream school" Parsons School of Design, got my "dream job" at Chanel Inc., then dove into the art world where I traveled for a few years. For the past three years, I had living the (more or less) single life in Manhattan. Then, in July of 2013, at the recommendation of a friend, I scheduled an appointment with a psychic who told me that I would soon meet my soul connection and move to a place surrounded by mountains and trees that would be "a place of golden happiness" for me. I met him the very next day. By November, I moved to his ranch in Three Rivers, California.

I learned from a friend that, sometimes, even though you might have figured out the love part, finding your place in the world is still a solo journey.
