Hello, my name is Vivien, and I hate making things lengthier than they should, which is why my reviews are relatively short. Short and concise is nice. I think it's the New York mentality of wanting things instant. Grammarly proves that I have horrible grammar and syntax. Prepare for zealous punctuation usage, and "complex-compound sentences!"

As if that short paragraph wasn't insightful enough, here's a list of my favorite things and facts about me. 

-Favorite Singer: BANKS
-Favorite book: Stolen by Lucy Christopher (I've read this book multiple times and mention it incessantly.)
-Favorite Movies: Silence of the Lambs, 10 Things I Hate About You, Moonrise Kingdom, Princess Mononoke (best Ghibli film), Pan's Labyrinth...
-Favorite Shows: Veronica Mars, Penny Dreadful, RuPaul's Drag Race, Dragula, Jeopardy...
-I enjoy learning languages. I'm Chinese, but my Cantonese and Mandarin are awful. (I prefer Cantonese because it sounds better, rolls off the tongue, and what I primarily hear/speak, excluding English. I've been steadily improving my Mandarin because I've been focusing my studies on it.) I've learned bits of Spanish, Latin, French, Swedish, Russian, and Japanese. Pronunciation, and retaining vocab, leads to frustration. I would love to learn ASL in the future. I aspire to be a polyglot and translator/interpreter. 
-I enjoy crafting/building/creating things. I love origami, cross stitch, puzzles, cooking, and baking. I sound like such an old fart!
-My favorite painting is "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat. I've loved this painting since elementary school, and I have a puzzle of it hanging on my wall.
