Tell us About Yourself​

 

Hello! My name is Mandy and I’m from southern California (Irvine). I’m an ENTJ (though my memory usually proves faulty and I forget this every few weeks), Slytherin (green’s not my color), and I refuse to identify by Divergent’s system. Pragmatism is what I believe is the best method of approaching the future, but I like to look at things with relentless optimism just for the sake of my sanity.
I like Marvel and have watched basically every single Marvel film opening weekend in theaters since around 2013 or 2014. I have a younger sister named Ruby because she was a REALLY red baby when she was born and her Chinese nickname means chubby, something I chose for her when she was born.
I have tendencies to get low blood sugar, like wearing white and blue and black, prefer silver jewelry, and have an obsession with Joshua from Seventeen and Bai Jingting right now. I’ve recently come to the realization that I really like movies, shows, and books with complex timelines built into the story telling (Tenet, Reset, Inception, Interstellar), but that might just because Christopher Nolan’s brain is really really big.
Whenever you don’t see me, I’m probably sleeping. I really really really like sleeping, by which I mean if I don’t get my 6-8 hours, I will be so completely out of it that it seems like I don’t exist. Unfortunately, caffeine doesn’t work on me (I’ve completely conked out and fallen asleep within an hour of drinking tea or coffee). I have ‘grandma tendencies’, though, meaning I will encourage you to drink hot water and wear warm socks because of random Chinese medicine things I know.

Hobbies/interests/passions?

I like reading, writing, and watching C-dramas.

What are some things you can't live without? 

I can't live without food, music, books, c-dramas, clothes, air, water, sugar (I get low blood sugar very easily), and the color blue.

What are your college and career goals? 

I'm quite unsure of what I want to do specifically in college (eg. minors), but I do know that I want to go into something in New York, probably something along the lines of IB or consulting.

Clothing sizes

I'm diff sizes in different brands so I think this might be better (also my memory is bad so I am doing this as I type):
Shoulders: 46 cm
Bust: 84 cm
Waist: 63 cm
Hips: 95 cm
Leg length: 105 cm
Shoe size: 8-- I had to check my shoes for this
Generally do prefer oversized outerwear though, so I stick to medium

What do you look for in a potential big sister?
Who do you look up to most? Why?
What kind of personalities do you get along with?
What is a moment or achievement you're proud of?
What qualities do you value in a person?
What do you hope to gain from the new member process of Kappa Phi Lambda?

Honestly, anyone that makes me feel safe! I like everyone and as long as they make me feel safe and happy it doesn't matter.

My mom! She's capable of a: putting up with my bullshit and being annoying for so long and b: she's really hardworking! She is willing to make sacrifices for my sister and I and I really admire her fortitude.

I think I get along with most people. I asked people and they said I get along with extroverted people? And that I can match people's energy.

I'm proud of rather small moments, like when my 112 code works. But in the grand scheme of things, I'm really proud of my achievements in Taekwondo.

I value loyalty, organization, and persistence.

I hope to make some good friends and to have fun! I want to have a community here on campus that makes me feel really safe.
