Oh, the cleverness of me!
Hello, my name is Andrea! I'm not very good at writing about myself, so here are some random facts about me.
lazy summer goddess
- I am Chinese American. I grew up on the northeast coast of the U.S., but when I was around 12 or 13 years-old, I moved to Shanghai, China. After graduating high school, I returned to the U.S. for college.
- I am bisexual. And romantic as fuck.
- Probably one of the most common questions I'm asked is: How do you pronounce your name? It's "ahn-DREY-ah," but I respond to all variations, really, haha.
- I share the same birthday as Napoleon Bonaparte (August 15th)! It also happens to be the same day the historical King Macbeth was killed. R.I.P.
- My sun sign is Leo and my moon sign is Cancer. According to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, I am an INFP. I feel they're pretty accurate.
- My Chinese name is "Phonyu" (鳳瑜), which is the username I use on most social media accounts. My siblings and I are named after our Chinese zodiac animals. Since I was born in the year of the rooster, my name means "phoenix."
- I've had short hair since I was 5 or 6 years-old. When I was little, my mom convinced me to let her cut it by telling me I'd look like Mulan from Disney's Mulan, which just came out in theaters. And I fell for it because, well... who wouldn't like to look like Mulan?! I haven't grown it out since.
- I love reading and writing. I'm also a pretty big William Shakespeare nerd. My favorite play is Macbeth, but I'm partial towards King Lear as well. My favorite heroes are Macbeth (which can be subjective, depending on whether or not you view him as the protagonist or antagonist—or both!), Othello from Othello and Prince Hal from King Henry IV/V. My favorite heroine is Viola from Twelfth Night; I also love Cleopatra from Antony and Cleopatra!
- I also enjoy playing video games! Some of my favorite series include The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Fire Emblem, The Elder Scrolls and Dragon Age. I'm also a regular player of Guild Wars 2! The classes I tend to gravitate to in MMOs and other games are rogues and dark sorcerers/mages (necromancers!!!).
- My favorite season is summer! It probably comes as no surprise then that I love hot weather. I enjoy experiencing the different seasons and all that, but the cold... ugh... I don't like it...
- I started building websites around 2003-2004 and learned HTML/CSS coding through... Neopets. Heh. My first site was a graphics site. Eventually I got swept up into the whole fanlistings/fansites thing and I haven't looked back since.
I have quite a few online haunts, but whenever I try to make them public, they somehow inevitably go private because...??? But don't worry, dudes, I'm plenty friendly! (｡•̀ᴗ-)✧ If you'd like, you can hit me up on Twitter or find me on Tumblr, where I always entertain questions, including anonymous asks!
