My Pre-Semester Checklist for College

I can't believe winter vacation (寒假-han jia in Chinese) is over and this Monday I'm going back to college. Like last semester, this one will be entirely online.

I am currently 26 years old as of writing this post and on my Goodreads I have just surpassed 1,500 read books (technically 1,552 as of writing this post). This doesn't count a lot of the books I read as a kid before I discovered Goodreads, but I thought it was an exciting benchmark. Now, … Continue reading How Reading Over 1,500 Books Has Changed My Life
