Seven Things About Me:

  1. I am obsessed with the number eight. Not only is it my lucky number, but it holds a lot of meaning for me. To me, the number is both lucky and shows strength. It is also perfectly symmetrical – I love how it can be split up and divided so evenly. Also my birth year is ’88 and I am an August baby. Haha, and random fact (and coincidence), me and my boyfriend’s anniversary date is 08/08/08.
  2. In high school, I was super shy around strangers and really crazy hyper around the people I know. I had a group of friends and we called ourselves the “ring crew” because we always sat around in a circle on the floor during lunch time.   I was also a dancer and did lots  of performances for mostly hip hop and locking, and sometimes jazz, house, wacking, and a tiny bit of break dancing.
  3. I am American born Chinese. My first language was English, but I also speak Mandarin. I understand Shanghai dialect, and understand even less Cantonese. My French sucks even though I took 3 years of it, I think I may actually know more Spanish. I am fluent in Japanese, but lately I noticed a big drop in my reading.
  4. There was a time that I was highly addicted to piercings. In middle and high school, I would pierce my own ear. I remember one time in high school, I gave myself 7 piercings in one night. Most of those piercings have gone away now. Currently I have 8 ear piercings (cartilage, industrial, tragus, and four lobule auricule). I’ve always wanted to get my rook pierced, but that would mean that I would have 9 piercings, and I can’t have any other number but 8 because I’m weird like that. I do however have my tongue pierced. I also has my navel pierced at one point, but my body rejected it literally, and pushed the piercing out and broke my skin.
  5. My fashion style timeline: In high school I loved to wear Nike Cortez, baggy pants (and I sagged), tight fitted spaghetti strap top, big zip-up hoodies, and hoop earrings. I also carried around a CD player with big headphones. Then I started dressing more girly to attract the guys, wearing lots of little skirts. In college I never went shopping and wore lots of hand-me-downs because I was super broke. Now that I’m working and making money, I buy new clothes that makes me feel good about myself and confident. My aim is usually to look sexy while still looking classy.
  6. My make up has always been influenced by gyaru. In high school, my role model was Koda Kumi because she was hot. I remember back in the days, gyaru was unheard of in America and to be able to see how much it has grown over the years is remarkable. Although I loved gyaru for oh so long, it wasn’t until a year or so ago that I really started to try to achieve the gyaru look on many more levels. I don’t do it on a daily basis because I don’t think it is practical for my working life and schedule, but I do it when I go out to see my friends. I know I suck, but hey, everyone’s gotta start somewhere, yea?
  7. Jesus is my homie. But I’m a bad friend and I never hit him up unless I am in deep sh*t. I’m such a bad Christian that you can’t really even tell that I’m Christian. I do believe in God however and try my best to go to church every Sunday.

    1. xlicious says: Reply

      its probably hard because its so different and there are probably some sounds that aren’t used in portuguese! haha but i imagine that portuguese is just as hard to learn 🙂

      you totally deserved it!

  13. CeeCee says: Reply

    I really want to get my ear pierced (the rook), but I am super scared of pain! I can’t believe you managed to do it yourself, I wish I could too ^-^

    1. xlicious says: Reply

      I like to think that pain doesn’t last. U can’t stop time from moving on and pain will soon be past. Also, I bought a piercing gun from Sally’s beauty supply to pierce my ears when I was a kid. Haha I feel like that should have been illegal for me to buy.

  14. Aww thanks for nominating me! I’ve been tagged a few times already haha should really get to it~ Nice post! And LOL your last fact just precisely summarized my religion. hahahaha

    1. xlicious says: Reply

      Haha cool happy to hear that I’m not alone. And u should do the post so I can learn more about u!

  15. Ohhh yeah number 2 is me as well! But I think I’m starting to be weird around people I’ve just met too… O.o Thanks for nominating! Will get to it!

    1. xlicious says: Reply

      hahaha i think i weird people out all the time =___= i feel like i’ve lost some social skills after college, either that or i just don’t care anymore.
