Experiences

I enjoy problem solving, as it brings tangible solutions to the real world. Currently, I am looking to explore more about front-end developing because I am interested in enhancing user visual experiences and bring more convenience to their internet adventures. Aside from front-end developing, I am also enthusiast about Machine Learning. During the remaining times of my undergraduate years, I plan on taking more Data Science and Artificial Intelligence classes to better prepare me for robust jobs in the future.

    Lifestyle


    Cooking at Home

    Cooking is very therapeutic and stress-reliefing for me. From buying fresh groceries to plating and serving hot dishes on the table, I enjoy every step of the process. What I like about cooking the most is that I get to customize everything. I mainly use recipes as guides and add my own twist based on my preferences. This is the Youtube channel I watch the most for inspirations.

    Here are some dishes I made for me and my friends:

    kimchi fried rice with seaweed lemon baked with salmon chinese soy sauce steamed pork belly japanese curry over rice peppered steak pasta with broccoli korean bibimbap

    Favorite Restuarants in NYC

    New York offers a wide variety of food choices and that's what I love about it. My favorite cuisines include Japanese, Korean, and Mexican. Here is a list of my top five restuarants in New York:

    1. Sakamai
    2. Her name is Han
    3. Los Tacos No.1

    Books I've been reading!

    Recently, I have been getting in the habit of reading. It is important to wind down and spend time by myself every night before bed. I try to take at least one hour out of my day to read a bit. Below are some books I want to share:


    Crying in Hmart
  • This is a book about how an American-Born-Korean Artist found her roots after the passing of her mother due to cancer.
  • A very heartfelt but somewhat somber book.
  • Connects back to traditional korean dishes to bring special memories to us. It is a good way to savor these good times through good food
  • Lesson I learned: Family always comes first. You never realized how important it is until you lose them.
  • Speaking of so, I kind of miss home food right now.
  • Strongly recommend.



  • Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck
  • A very basic book that I think everyone has read (or at least heard of).
  • Honestly, I feel like the book was stating the obvious.
  • Funny book though.
  • A very "light" book, so not a lot of commitment to read it.
  • A took some notes while reading it, but I don't really remember any essential take-aways. Might go back to read my notes if I ever need some wise words.



  • Python Crash Course
  • Read this during quarantine when I got COVID at the end of 2021.
  • Pretty self-explanatory.
  • I don't have much to say about it, but I think it did help me review some python concepts I was not strong about.



  • System Error Book
  • I plan on reading this book next.
  • I think it will shed light on how technology could be a horror to the real world.
  • I want to read this to expand my knowledge on techonology's impact on our society.



  • The House of Gucci
  • I just bought this book today.
  • Never really a mystery genre type of person but I want to try it out.



  • Linear Algebra Textbook
  • This was a gift from my friend when I was taking the course Linear Algebra.
  • Personally, I find it troubling to learn math from a textbook. I prefer watching videos on it.
  • The MIT professor, Gilbert Strang, is a great way I found to learn Linear Algebra.
  • Don't think this should be on my book list because I never read it, but I am going to leave it here anyways.



  • The Power of Letting Go
  • Another book that I plan on reading soon.
  • Side note to myself: I should stop buying books because I have too many books I need to read.
  • The speed of me buying books is way faster than the speed I read.
  • This is a self-help book that I found online. It's pretty thin so I think I can finish it in a few days.
