Q: I know a lot of people have asked this question already, but what’s your favorite color?
A: Blue, as usual. (Subject to change)

Q: Have you ever done anything this month that is trivial but it makes you feel it’s a tremendous achievement?
A: I actually realized that I use my phone a lot. Yes, it’s A LOT. So I checked the Screen Time settings on my phone, and turned off notifications for social media. Guess what? The stats went down by 16%!

Q: How’s your 21st birthday going?
A: It was really amazing. My team gave me a very genuine and nice surprise, and so do my coworkers and roommates. Even my insurance company sent me a postcard this year, by which I apparently was shocked.

Q: You’re working on so much stuff simultaneously. How do you handle them well?
A: Well… Actually I am dying now. I am taking 18 credits this semester, and also working with different clubs, as well as organizing tech-related events. I kinda regret a bit of my choice, since it’s a bit overwhelming, but many of my friends also told me that “you cannot always get everything you want”. So my decision was to maximize the value of limited time.
