Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I joined the site some time ago, initially for the question
matching thing with my friends. That's why my profile was empty for
quite a while (not for knowing new people at the time). Back to the
question stuff, my friends' answers and mine got high enemy rates
with depressingly low matching. However, it turns out that we get
along pretty well and thanks to OKC, I got to know my friends
I just started my master's program in Toronto this fall. I am
studying developmental psychology and education at UofT. This is my
first time in Canada, and of course Toronto. I haven't really got
involved in the city much. I would love to see some museums/artsy
places, since there are many in Toronto. If you know the places and
would like to show me around, hit me up!
I stayed in the US (more specifically California) for one year.
Before I came to Canada, I simply assumed that Canada and America
were just the same. Now I realized these two countries are quite
different in some ways, which excites me!

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
--Sleeping. I mean, I can fall asleep real quick, and won't be
easily woken by sounds or lights. That said, I may not successfully
escape in time whenever an earthquake occurs at night. :(
--Listening. A good listener and a secret keeper. :)
--Laughing. Smiling and laughing all the time, especially when
someone tells a bad joke and nobody laughs. :D
--Making faces ugly. When I make faces, I do look very ugly. :'(

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Considering that's six THINGS:
--A glass of water after getting up every morning.
--A cup of coffee after breakfast.
--A pen and a notebook. I can retrieve them within 5 seconds when I
--A camera or a smartphone with a camera. I like to record
--My stomach. Eating is important!
--A brain and a heart. Do and say things with responsibility.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading a book, watching a movie, dinning out with friends...
