Wish I could study here…
Totally din regret choosing HKUST over other HK unis even tho it’s probably the most ulu (out of the way) place. The views really made up for it. Woke up to a wonderful view of the hilly islands and the sea almost every day for four months. That was really awesome! :)

I took this photo on Friday as I was walking back to the Central train station in Hong Kong. So crazy to think of this intensely busy street being filled with brave citizens with their umbrellas and makeshift gas masks fighting for their own rights.
Hong Kong is the most incredible city I’ve ever been to. Such a beautiful cluster of noises, colors, lights, and people who are more like wonderful animated characters of themselves. The city both is modern and traditional and well oiled and kind and peaceful.
I never felt threatened wandering around any part of HK. During this protest, its obvious to see just how peaceful the people of Hong Kong are. There is over 50k people protesting against mainland China for their own rights and not one car has been set on fire, looting isn’t even a thought, and the only violence that has occurred is the weapons being thrown at these people who have done nothing to disrespect their culture. The only defense they’re using against the hoses, pepper sprays, and tear gases are umbrellas flipped up and used as shields. This kind of crack down on such an unique culture gives me an anxiety about the future of democratic Hong Kong. Its a place that deserves to flurish and give China a good name.

Friendship songs #5
An underrated friendship song!!! A lot of you probably don’t know this band, they are new, they are young, but they work so hard and support each other even years after not achieving anything. They love music and they happily perform on the streets for all to love what they do!!! This song is super cute and catchy!!! It talks about your bestie that you’re super glued with! Doing everything together and not being able to think about not having them in your life.
