The most influential person in my life has been
I am vegetarian and like the idea of minimalism. I prefer someone who is vegetarian as well, but this is not a requirement, as long as she likes vegetarian food too.
The first thing people notice about me
Most people will notice that I have knowledge in a variety of subjects. This is probably because I have three different majors, and I have lived in several countries before.
The last book I read and enjoyed
It was about famous painters and their works of art, including those of Millet (The Gleaners), Rembrandt (Self Portrait), and Michelangelo (St. Peter's Basilica). I like the description of the artists' stories and the detailed explanations of their pieces of art.

A little more about me
I am currently a Ph.D student of a social science major. I plan to start working in academia when I graduate in about two or three years. As I spent most of life in school, I neither look nor behave like a typical guy of my age.I am mostly a spiritual nonreligious person. Originally from China, I have the experience of living in several countries. My life goal is to be a university professor, have a family of two or three kids, and travel around the world.Typically, I am attracted to girls taller than I am. Being a little over weighted is fine as long as you plan to be fit.Cheers!
