About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Save some money and travel together.

ABOUT ME

Effy:
Passionate, when it comes to language learning I would become a weirdo.
I interpret the language I'm learning in my own way, and become stingy with every little mistake. But I'm not a hard working type, I believe that there's a process to learn especially when it comes to languages, I give it time to digest what I learnt, then take my time to learn more. ;)
I'm a very flexible person, from my own point of view, there're many things that I can't understand in this world, but I do not judge, I believe that everyone has their own way of living, and it's none of my business how others think or live. ;)

PHILOSOPHY

Effy:
Live and learn.
If one does not know any better, one cannot be held responsible.

Music, Movies, and Books

Effy:
Love sad music. (not when partying of course :p) Love country.
I like Jason Mraz, Keith urban and Darin(swede), I think they have the most beautiful voices in the world.
Read too many books years ago, now I mostly read my text books only and I love 'em.
I love comedies and I watch lots of American series, Dexter is the best show ever, I love criminal minds, the Carry Diaries, sex and the city, friends, Chuck, how I met your mother, Big Bang, 2 broke girls, house of cards, etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Effy:
Met my ex-BF through CS, he's one of my hosts' friend in Penang.
He also hosted me for 20 days in total (as my bf).
We're not together anymore mostly because of the distance.
I traveled around Southeast Asia in one summer.
Quitting my university in China during the 3rd year and came to Poland to start over.
Moved in with Olek after dating him for less than a month, and it's been amazing.

Olek:

Teach, Learn, Share

Effy:
I'm learning Polish, and still working on my English at some point, because when it comes to learning languages, I become super picky;
I study psychology in UW and I teach Chinese as a part-time job;
I love food, eating & cooking, so I'm always learning new cuisines. ;)
