About Me

It is hard to describe oneself accurately because there always have some aspects in one's mind to discover but I can say I try to find out more about myself almost every moment in my life. I like the things connect to nature and all beings in the world. Being open-minded,honest,unprejudiced and easy-going is the person I want to become because I believe live in this way can lead a much more better life not just for myself also for other people. For me,the world is the only university I should go and learn forever. Life is hard but do not lose faith in it.


Keep mind or even soul like a kid,observing this world by own unique way and be patient to tell the only truth behind sorts of complicated things. To find your anger but not be controlled by it then your anger will become the power to let the life find its truly own way:)

I like the way the American indeginous think that they do things always think about the next seven generations first. "Sometimes I am curious about what dreams the children will make after all of us have gone already."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love traveling and meet local people to share our different life experience and diverse cultures.

Music, Movies, and Books

Heaps of them so below just mention some pieces I am interesting recently or inspiring me a lot.

The Turin Horse/Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind/Weekend/Mon Oncle d'Amerique/Red Desert/All animations from Hayao Miyazaki,and I love Japanese animation very much so if you ask me for recommending which animation are worth watch,I can make a quite long list for you:)

John Berger/The Great Gatsby/Paul Auster/Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami,Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse,Qiu Miaojin who contributes almost all her life in Lesbian Culture in Taiwan when people were still very conservative about the culture and her novels and diaries not only encourage people to stand out but also inspire lots of young people to discover themselves deeply(one of them is me)

Guns N' Roses/John Lennon/Bob Dylan/Patti Smith/Noel Gallagher/The Velvet Underground/Pink Floyd/U2/Damien Rice/James Blunt/Sigur Rós/929,Taiwanese indie band/Omnipotent Youth Society,awesome Chinese indie band/Folks music,Classic and Jazz are interested as well and I like to find out local music band or alternative music rathet than mainstream music while traveling.
