About Me

I love Google image search. I would agree with anything that can make me laugh. :))))))))

I grew up in Taipei, Taiwan, and moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2010. I love creating art and listening to music, it's like a meditation to me so I know I am living.

I LOVE NATURE. Nature calms me down and brings me back to the pure space.

You can talk to me just about anything. There are no sensitive topics to me.... yes, please, let's make each other laugh. :D

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
