. Specifically, I'm proud of my shoe
collection. Shoes are the foundation for an outfit, and then I
build my way up. I do like hunting for a nice skirt or cute top to
complete an outfit, but everything really centers on the
. Hunting for deals is one of my favorite
pasttimes, regardless if I have money to spend on them or not. It's
the thrill of the hunt, amid the plastic jungle.
. I have been making meals for my family
for many years now... maybe eight years or even more, I don't
really remember. It's one of those things that you get trained in
as a kid, and then one day, it's your responsibility...you know?
While a lot of my dishes are Asian, I can also do some typical
American stuff, and I fuse cuisines too (necessity is the mother of
invention). I know that not everyone loves Oriental flavors.
I am pretty good at academics, especially English
even if they're boring to me. Math and science are not my favorite
subjects; I'm more liberal-arts-oriented, I guess? Somewhat
ironically, English is the subject I dislike above all others. It
is terrible to be good at something and not like to do it...but
then again, it's not a good idea to pick what to do in life based
solely on what you're good at.
I write code on and off, although I'm pretty rusty now. Check out
if you're so inclined:
Specifically, I used to write code for Multi User Dungeons
, using the language known as LPC. These days I
program using Ruby (and Rails)
, and I think my
level of mastery is about the same as with LPC, even though I've
only spent a month or two learning it. Having a quality teacher
makes learning so much easier.
are another big passion of mine. I
have been playing ever since I was a little kid, maybe 5 or 6 years
old. I still remember my Dad's old, brick-sized GameBoy, which I
would play with sometimes. Nowadays, due to a lack of funds, I
generally stick to the retro gaming circuit...I also play Japanese
or indie stuff occasionally, such as visual novels, since it's
cheaper than buying a lol game disc.
Currently, despite still being poor, I'm back in World of Warcraft.
It's been good to go back to an MMO, but it really does take over
one's life...I often feel like WoW is more important than "irl",
and that's a sad thought.
I moved my giant games list to a gist on my Github account, since
it was just too large and no one reads the entire thing anyway.
(Bonus points if you do.) Need to reformat it at some point:
