About Me

Who Am I?

Nice meeting you here stranger!

As you may already know by now, I am a junior majoring in computer science and applied math at USC. Besides that, here are a few fun facts about me:

  • My Chinese name is 封欣雨 (Xinyu Feng) and Lindsey is my preferred name
  • Besides learning math stuff and coding cool stuff, I have huge passion for anime, games and music. (yeah otaku me!) I also like surreal and post-modern literature and art works.
  • Speaking of anime stuff, my favorite anime character is Asuka Langley Soryu. Always.
  • Speaking of music, here are a few random songs that I enjoy and you may find interesting: this one, this one, and this one
  • I am also actively writing random stuff. (you may find them here) i myself refer them as post-modern writing. They are mostly fragmented pieces filled with subjective dillusional distorted reality to capture the absurdity of a meaningless world with essentially no rule and no purpose at all (haha getting real). I also try to explore different narrative structures.
