I turned 21 years old on October 1! On the day before my birthday, I got my ears pierced with a friend. I got upper lobe done and it was painless. We visited a Chinese garden then went to my place for a sleepover.

All of my close friends attended my birthday dinner. We went to a Japanese restaurant.


Two friends surprised me with a cake. The staff sang ‘Happy Birthday’ really loud and I was shocked! I thought it was for a different table.


You can see my balloon and a scarf my friends gave me. I got a lot of cool gifts! I honestly think that I have the best friends in the whole world because they accept me for who I am. I am a little different with the whole anime hobby thing. I act like a kid, and I ask a lot of dumb questions. They still love me for being me.



Exo Bear Mask


Chanyeol loves One Piece, just like me

It’s no secret that I love EXO very much. EXO is a Korean pop boy group that consists of Korean and Chinese members. They sing in both Korean and Mandarin Chinese.


Plz ignore the fact that my bag is falling lolol

Xiumin here is one of my favourite members (along with Chanyeol and previously, Luhan). I feel a little embarrassed… *laughs*

I did see them in real life too, at their concert.

Help: Which book should I read first?

  • Walden Two – B.F. Skinner ($2 at book sale on university campus)
  • Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde – Robert Louis Stevenson ($3 at thrift store)
  • Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte ($2 at thrift store)

I try to avoid thrift stores because they make me sneeze a lot. I think I’m allergic to dust but if it means getting $2 books, then I’m willing to go.

I read manga everyday. Manga are Japanese comics and they are the book version of anime. You read in the opposite direction. Even though I like manga more, I still like novels.

I like books on psychology, mystery and books with villains. I read books that were written a long time ago. Walden Two was published in 1948. Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde was first published in 1886. Jane Eyre was first published in 1847. The only more modern books I like are by Haruki Murakami. He is a Japanese author and I read his books that have been translated in English.

Let me know in the comments which book I should read first!

First day of 2017

So today did not go as planned. I went to the theatres to watch Studio Ghibli’s Kiki’s Delivery Service, but there were technical issues and we were not able to watch the movie. The people at the theatre were really nice so I’m not mad.



Thanks for reading this pointless post!

Who am I?

I’ve been contacted in the past about what I do, questions like that. That’s why this post is for anyone else who might be curious.

My name is Rose and I am in my third year at the University of British Columbia. I am 20 years old. I started university when I was 17 years old, but that’s because I have a later birthday. I was raised in Canada so I am a Chinese Canadian citizen. I go to UBC because I live in British Columbia, and also because I got in. It’s also the best psychology program in Canada. For those of you in high school who might be interested in attending – the admission average is about 90%. ^^

I’m studying Psychology because that’s where my interests lie. I almost never talk about school so there you have it. I cannot believe that I am going to graduate university at the age of 21. That is so young in my opinion because I still feel that I am not mature enough. I do plan on continuing my studies and go to graduate school to get my Masters degree. That’s the plan! ^^
