ABOUT

Currently, I'm making the most of my last year at UC Irvine 馃槉
Here's what I've been enjoying these days:

  • Norwegian Wood, a coming-of-age story.
  • Circe, the legend of the Greek witch.
  • Shoe Dog, the story of Nike's inception and the autobiography of Phil Knight.
  • Pachinko, a story about love, suffering, and a Korean family trying to survive in WW2-era Japan.
  • The College Dropout, an album by Kanye West.
