An Introduction

I'm Erin, or Wei, or Weiwei
(username backstory: my sister always says "Hi, Wei" when she answers a call from me and then people ask her why she's talking about highways on the phone)

Taiwanese American born November 11, living in California.
Languages: English, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese (still learning), Korean (very little, want to learn)

What I like: Art, reading, music, inspiration.
What I wish I could do: Sing, socialize, inspire.

I am an avid fan of Asian pop: Shinee, f(x), EXO, Infinite, NEWS, 张芸京 (Zhang Yun Jing),Super Junior-M, etc.
But I also like: Most music genres honestly, American bands that aren't old enough to be classic yet have already died (see: The Academy Is..., Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Panic! at the Disco—though they haven't died yet)

My favorite famous people: Do Kyungsoo, Kim Jongin, Huang Zi Tao, Lee Taemin, Lee Jinki, Kim Myungsoo, Zhang Yun Jing, Amber Liu, Brendon Urie, Rooney Mara, but also many others

Other places to find me: k-pop dedicated tumblr // inspiration tumblr // deviantART

Other facts:
I have a sister (skudge) and am going off to the same college as her soon, but for a very different major.
I tend to have trouble in overly-crowded places, yet I find that I can't stop touching people.
I also have trouble socializing and opening up.
I think I have so many problems in my head and am utterly unique, but then I tell myself that everyone is exactly the same so I should stop thinking so highly of myself.

Feel free to friend me, but if you do, please comment on this post so I have some idea of who you are.

Apathy (again)

After successfully finishing a drawing I started last year, skipping graduation, and planning my college schedule, I am now too busy lazing around to start any of the other things I had planned for this magical, end-of-high-school-but-before-college-months-filled-with-hazy-days-and-marijuana summer (Not that I'm ~cool enough for pot), such as but not limited to:

Learning guitar (I should really use that nice acoustic in the corner of my room), playing piano, drawing more than I ever have before, experimenting with painting, cleaning my room, becoming more organized, reading new books, getting out of the house, socializing, not becoming a hermit.

But that's okay right? I'll get to it eventually.

Really, these are already posted on my deviantART page (a link!), but I have very little to blog about as of yet, so, I figured I might as well.

Sketches, doodles?

School started a few weeks ago now, and last week I decided that if I was going to be bored during boring classes I should use my time wisely. Meaning, not doing my many weeks worth of Calculus homework but sketching random things instead.

My sketch book is finally getting some use after how many years? XD I figure if I just keep drawing they'll eventually get better. Or theoretically, they will improve.
