Beside math and computer sciences, I am also interested in music and visual arts since my childhood, and was good at writing essays & poems during high school times. I still maintain Photography, Singing and Writing as my main hobbies, and have developed new interests in Orienteering and Sketching during college years.
Particularly, I wrote a recap of 2022 in Classical Chinese.
I also have a hobby on the deterministic-RPG puzzle game Tower of the Sorcerer since primary school, and also designed my own version.
