I am an old soul stuck in the modern life, who loves urban life but does not understand most of the current trends. I am a chronic insomniac and those nights are the time when I feel the most inspirational. I frequently create, observe the world, read and think.
Very recently I was diagnosed with bipolar type II, have been learning about it since then. I have acknowledged that I have mental problems only several years ago and having handling them since then. There are bad days and good days. With or without the medicine I will get through.
I am a full-time student at Peking University (MA China Studies). I am a 23-years-old Lithuanian living in Beijing, learning about China and myself. I am interested in many different things, from travelling and poetry to LGBT rights and mental health.
My ultimate goal is working either in education or with marginalised communities. I no longer have a dream country (used to have a huge obession with South Korea), I wish to work with people and for people of East Asia and world. But mainly East Asia, seriously, not leaving this part of the world!
