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.

Udacity Deep Learning Nanodegree Completed!
Made the decision to end my pescetarian diet that lasted for more than 6 months; I'm not gonna go back to my old carnivore diet but to a more balanced one with fresh meat. As always, stay healthy and strong.

Really proud of myself to have found the new place to live in three days.
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.
Made a donation online today. Felt so good about myself.

Birthday dinner with Jen, Kim, Lu, Chaoya, George, Javier, Smokey, and Zach. An unforgettable evening for me. I felt so grateful and lucky to have spent the past two years with these people at CMU. Best luck to everyone!
On my way to school, I was impressed by a man picking up his pet waste with a plastic bag. Indeed, one should never make their responsibility somebody else’s problem.
Met up with CoDe labers at Hemingway's Cafe.
With Jen, Chaoya and Zach, we walked along a desire path near campus on our way to dinner. I love the soup noodles at Love Yogurt. On our way back to campus, we saw people playing Tetris, which I was thinking as "Russian Cubes".
