Hi, I'm Rachel. Nice to meet ya.
I live in the heart of Silicon Valley, with the headquarters of Apple, Cisco, Facebook, etc. all within a 20 minutes drive of my house. Currently, I'm going to be a Senior in high school. Though my GPA may not be necessarily the best (understatement of the Summer Break), I go to an extremely competitive school. We have virtually no bullying, drug use, crime, etc, but instead foster an academic community in which students have competitive debates during brunch and intellectual chatter during lunch. Okay, that may be pushing it a bit, because come on, we're still teens. But we did have an Academic Rally last year. I love my school. :)
Anyway, umm, I'm not sure what else to put here. The Italian Job is my favorite movie (followed by The Proposal, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and She's the Man). I love That 70's Show, George Lopez, Outsourced, Sing-Off, Two and 1/2 Men, Nikita, House, V, and The Event. I still have mini-freakouts sometimes when I think of this EXTREMELY FREAKY movie, "It" (originally a novel by Steven King), that I was, ahem, "forced" by my older cousins to watch when I was in the 2nd grade... Which leads me to Things That Freak Me Out the most: 1.creepy clowns (e.g., "It") 2. scary dolls 3. needles 4. spiders and 5. the college application process. I love dancing and singing (though I'm not the best at either).
I have a favorite stuffed animal named none other than Pandy. And I also have 5 lucky numbers: 1, 3, 5, 23, 32. 23 is my luckiest lucky number. I am Taiwanese. I speak English and Chinese fluently, and I know a sufficient amount of Francais.
Well, that pretty much sums up my life. If there is anything else you would like to know, by all means: ask! I would love to hear from you.
