My self-summary
I started out thinking I would be staying in the states after college until family affairs brought me back to Taiwan. I got very drawn by the richness of culture, the dynamics of the society and the friendliness of people here that I ended up staying a lot longer than I intended. Well, I've been traveling between two places and would like to make friends and find someone whom to share feelings with.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently doing research in the comparison of sociological psychology between people of Taiwan and China. My research also pertains to comparing the psychological effect of rationalization, abstract reasoning and philosophizing worldly phenomenon between Eastern and Western cultures.
I’m really good at
Cooking, taking things slow in life, enjoying a good time with friends and family.
The first things people usually notice about me
Friendly, I guess.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
So far I've been reading a lot of research papers on scientific theories and methodologies, I enjoy reading poetries, visiting galleries and museums and engage in more creative and free spirited conversations with people who are passionate about life.
The six things I could never do without
Spending time with family and friends, creating, exploring, meditating, enjoying life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A poem that I haven't thought of for years but recently surfaced at the back of my mind. Many can read it as a love poem, but at this age, I think it simply reveals something unspoken and secretive that many long for.

It's written by a Chinese female poet named Shi Mu Rong called A Tree that Blossoms. Here it goes, "How do I let you meet me, at the most beautiful moment of my life? For this, I prayed to Buddha for five hundred years, to let us encounter. Buddha then turned me into a tree that grew on the road you often passed by. As the sun shone on the tree, the flowers that imbued with wishes from my previous lives, blossomed.

When you walk near, please listen with care. The trembling leaves are the passion that I awaited. When you pass by indifferently, the petals that fall behind, my friend, those are not the petals, but my heart that shivers."

I'm not a sentimental person, and Buddha certainly would not turn people into a tree, but this is a poem that simply make me sigh... The question I cannot help to ask, is love truly intentional or purely a state of mind?
You should message me if
If you enjoy meaningful conversations.

If you don't mind the results and implications given by the personality test of this website, which, I think requires a lot of qualification. That is, if you don't mind to befriend me even if we're rated high as "enemies".... Haha....
