I am a sports enthusiast, and the next thing I know is anime. I like spending my time reading mangas, watching anime, k-drama, and making playlists. As much as I want to invest my time in these activities, I am occupied with 'trying to become a psychologist.' I love giving anime references to real-life situations. I am a terrible cook but try to re-create Asian cuisines often, well I am an Asian.
