as alluded to earlier, i go to the university of washington for school, currently in my sophomore year and undeclared. i'm trying to become a materials engineer, but there's a pretty slim chance i can get into the major.
i'm still trying to figure out a lot of things about how to live my life. i have terrible habits, haven't achieved entirely all that much, and don't have a good idea of what i should be doing usually. my grades are pretty bad for what i want to do. i usually retain a pretty positive outlook on life though, so that keeps me going.
i like music, like ~90% of people do. i listen to all sorts of shit. whatever sounds good, really. some of my recent favorites would include the beethoven sonatas (trying to listen to all of them sometime), a lot of hip hop, alternative, electronic, and classic rock even. i bought a bunch of audio stuff, like my prized sennheiser hd 600s and dunu iems, which accounted for a large part of my spending last year.
when asked about what makes me interesting, i usually think about my family first. both my parents grew up in the cultural revolution in china, and through extreme hard work and a little luck, managed to make it to america and graduate with stem phds at a highly prestigious university. i have a brother that went to the school that my dad currently teaches at, graduating an engineer and working at a tech giant in silicon valley. to say that they have accomplished great things is pretty easy for me to say, but i just don't know what i will end up doing. i'm just grateful that as the youngest and perhaps most troubled at this point in time out of us, they fully support me and want me to be happy. i know that i'm very lucky to have them.
anyways, right now i need to find an internship over the summer, housing for next year, and figure out how to do well in school. i always struggle trying to figure out these sorts of things... but i guess it shouldn't be that hard once i start.
this is my favorite oc
