-who I am-

I'm just a 22-year-old guy from Hong Kong who's now living in London pursuing a degree in Classical Studies with English. I'm a Chinese guy by birth and an odd hybridised mix in person; English is the language that comes most naturally to me but I also speak Cantonese and Mandarin, though I am by far not too fluent in either of them. I have a fairly intermediate knowledge of Latin - just completed a module in intermediate Latin, for that matter - and also a fairly intermediate grasp of German (on a simple, conversational level). I'm not particularly tall, I'm on the somewhat scrawnier side (though I'm less scrawny than I used to be - I hope), and I'm not terribly athletic (this one could definitely use more exercise. Way more exercise). And yes, unfortunately, I do wear glasses. If you make any terrible Asian jokes you go on my blacklist, and you will stay there until you repent of your error. Beeeetch.

-what I love-

Total nerd, and unfortunately I can't say I'm not proud of it. I don't really have the patience to read a lot of stuff, but that also means that my material of choice is largely either poetry or drama, both of which I adore immensely. Theatre is something I always go back to no matter how much I say I'm done, and I have a feeling I'll be going back to it for a while more. Well, I'm really not complaining. I do also love languages very much (as you might have noticed from the previous section) and nothing excites me more than an interesting language to get my mind around. I sound like an utter perv right now.

Yes, however, I also do like a handful of shows. Alias was my first love, Glee I will always love, Gossip Girl is frustrating and fascinating all at the same time, and Happy Endings is without a doubt my favourite. sitcom. ever. Don't even try to argue.

I do enjoy gaming as well, but I'm by no means a decent gamer (I love cheat codes, I'm really lazy, and I use walkthroughs). My favourite game (for now) is Dragon Age, but I also think Portal is awesome (both 1 and 2). I used to be nuts about Age of Empires II (honestly speaking, who wasn't?) and other similar RTS games. Oh and I really really liked city-building games (Caesar III! A game that will always have a special place in my heart :')).
