For over a century, I've lived in secret. Hiding in the shadows,

alone in the world. Until now. I'm a vampire and this is my story.

Had dinner with my roommates, Zhisheng Xu and Wei Luo. The waitress at our table told me that I looked like Huang Xiaoming, a Chinese actor, singer, and model. She must have been the 4th or 5th person who said so since I came to the States. Very interesting. Perhaps I shouldn't stay up late every night watching TV shows. It's time to consider starting a career in acting. Lol.
