I write. I cook. I read. I bake. I draw. I sing. I dance. I snap pictures. I laugh (a lot). I do stupid things. I make goofy jokes. I love traveling alone to foreign lands and playing tourist in my hometown. I travel with notebooks and pens. The further or the longer I go, the more notebooks and pens I’ll carry with me. In the cities I visit, usually I will just stroll around listlessly, no destination in mind, while taking pictures of everything until I find places I like. These are the places where I will sit for hours: writing, drawing, painting, reading, daydreaming, talking to strangers, or watching the passers-by. I don’t mind skipping landmarks and tourist attractions, but I’ll be heartbroken shall I miss bookstores, coffee shops, or flea markets. I love to take pictures of plants, animals, doors, windows, and hanging laundries. On the plane, I’ll memorize how to say “I don’t have a boyfriend” or “I’m single” in local language.
