About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Go cave diving! Eu sou de Recife!

ABOUT ME

I'm a college student, so most of the time I study, and if I'm not in the library, I'm in the dining hall, talking with amazing people!

I'm from Shanghai, China, so I speak Mandarin as my native language. But I'm also taking Spanish, so hopefully by the time I graduate, I can communicate with native speakers freely~

And I enjoy taking pictures. I usually have a camera with me while I'm on campus, because it's really pretty here in New England, especially during autumn, when the leaves fall.

PHILOSOPHY

¡Pura vida!

I really love my college, because here I grew to be more open-minded, curious, genuine, passionate, tolerant, modest and responsible. But there is always more to learn, both academic-wise and life-wise.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My friends suggest me join couch surfing, coz "it's full of wonderful and interesting people"! I'm still quite new to couch surfing, but experience always starts from scratch~

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

first experience = Woot! Drive-in movie with a friend and a couchsurfer who introduced us/drove us to this awesome movie place!

I hosted a bit in Budapest, when I was there as an exchange student for a year (2012 - 2013). It's such a busy and lively place, with lots of couchsurfers to host and to meet. Sadly I moved back to my college town in New England area and not many come to this little place as tourists, so I'm not really hosting much this year.

Interests

I like jazz. Horace Silver is great!

And I'm an advanced scuba diver! Woot hopefully I can be able to do cave diving soon! (Update) Now I'm a rescue diver! Still not a cave diver yet, but slowly getting there.

I also like rock-climbing and caving. The best part about college is that it actually pays for my rock-climbing and caving fees during the semesters! It doesn't get better than this! :P

Music, Movies & Books

I like the movie Meet the Robinsons. "Keep moving forward!" Also, much of my philosophy can be seen in the musical Into the Woods and the books of Harry Potter.

eg. Nice is different than good. - Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim

eg. Only those who can appease their own conscience can gain true freedom. - Hunyadi László by Erkel Ferenc

I lived right next to the Hungarian State Opera House when I was living in Budapest. It was amazing! Free opera all night ev'ry night when I passed by the opera house to go home.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I had a turtle for three years. And he lived under my bed.

I went scuba-diving in Rockport, MA during a windy day. I managed to walk out of the water and through the rocky beach with a heavy tank, all by myself!

Teach, Learn, Share

Um, I do math. Do you want to learn about Lebesgue integration or wreath products? How about different kinds of graphs?

:P I do other things too, like breast stroke and origami.

Countries I've Visited

Canada, China, Cuba, Honduras, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Northern Mariana Islands, Spain, Thailand, United States

Countries I've Lived In

China, Hungary, United States
