My name is Vivien, and I'm a teen from New York. I'm incredibly straightforward, which may come off as being rude. But, I'm trying to be nicer by thoroughly editing my posts. I hate making things lengthier than they should, which is why my reviews are relatively short. Short and concise is nice. Grammarly proves that I have horrible grammar and syntax. Prepare for zealous punctuation usage!

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.)

-I love a dark thriller, but I'm a total scaredy-cat when it comes to horror films.

-I love Beauty and the Beast retellings. I have enjoyed every one that I've read, and I hope to continue to.

-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, Bob's Burgers, Jeopardy, Twin Peaks (Log Lady is mood™), Sherlock, Soul Eater, Naruto, Blue Exorcist...

-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. 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 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 person... 

-I hate printing, but people these days can't read or write cursive, which is disheartening. I appreciate a great font and calligraphy.
