Day 1, Wednesday: The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph... no one will be counting your words... probably)
I know our blog is mainly a makeup/nails blog, but I also want to use it as medium where I can document my thoughts and stuff that goes on in my life, because it's fun and god knows I don't have the perseverance to keep an actual journal. Anyhow, I really encourage all of you who frequent our blog to join in as well because I would love to learn more about you!
Day 1: The Story of My Life In 250 Words or Less
I was born in mainland China. My parents say that I was a very shy but independent baby who didn’t cry much. I had a best friend growing up and we lived in the same apartment building; we had a hobby of going to department stores and collecting fashion catalogs, weird I know.

when we were little.
I was very close to my grandmother, I remember she taught me how to jump rope. Unfortunately she passed away of cancer when I was ten, and in that same year my parents and I immigrated to Vancouver.
When I first moved to Canada, I had the hardest time fitting in; my classmates made fun of me because I was an immigrant and didn’t speak English; one boy in particular teased me mercilessly about my appearance. Because of that, I have a pretty negative body image even today. Whenever I pass a group of teens standing around laughing, I subconsciously have this fear that they are laughing at me.
Fortunately, I found solace and a bit of confidence in arts and crafts. I loved art class in high school; I would spend countless lunch hours working on my paintings. I considered going to art school but I didn’t feel like it would lead to a secure career so I decided to study biology. I can’t say whether or not I am glad with the decision I made but I guess only time will tell. There you go, a very brief story of my life, I feel like I have so much more to share!
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed that tidbit and hopefully it wasn't too depressing, haha. :p
The prompt for tomorrow is:
Day 2, Thursday: Educate us on something you know alot about or are good at. Take any approach you'd like (serious and educational or funny and sarcastic)
Hmmm, don't know what I will do with that, but we will see!
