books, movies, shows n’ peeps

coucou! it’s been a while… a whole month to be exact.

i’ve been busy hosting my exchange partner from france and we had a couple rad weeks together. meanwhile, if you know me, the crazier my life gets, the more stuff i expose myself to. i just can’t help it: books, movies, musicals, and this month i got Netflix, so i watched me some good tv shows as well.

it’s actually what i love about being such a huge nerd: people just rain recommendations on me… i suppose it’s reciprocal. almost everyday i get poems, authors, podcasts and even norwegian tv shows that i “HAVE TO CHECK OUT”.

not that i mind.

We cannot all look alike. –Amber Liu

amber liu 

 

i’ve been loitering at the entrance of the kpop fandom for a while, and then i found amber. she’s a member of the girl group f(x), and she’s the realest, smartest and most talented person ever. she’s so cute and down-to earth and meanwhile so full of wise words about self-acceptance. she’s one of first people in the kpop industry with an androgynous style.

petra collins

i first discovered petra collins on instagram. she is an amazing artist and photographer from Toronto (woo hoo TO!). her photos are stunning with dreaming colours and the beauty of things unsaid and unexpressed.

 

jen ruggirello

 

if you watch buzzfeed videos, you would recognize jen… she is so cute and genuine, and as a queer asian woman (well, half-asian half-italian), she is such an inspiration.

aaron tveit

 

aaron tveit is the broadway dreamboat… he was in musicals such as Next to Normal, Wicked, Catch Me If You Can, and Grease Live, Rent Hollywood, and the Hollywood Les Miserables movie. his voice is like when you wake up on the first day of summer vacation.

if you have more gems for me to discover, please comment below!
