Hi. I’m Helen. Here are some facts about yours truly: I was born in Shanghai and grown in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am often restless, occasionally reckless, but always reasonable, except when I’m not. I love books and movies, but I hate when I can tell what is going to happen. This preference applies to my views on life in general.

I am drawn to things that I find grotesque or unsettling, like books by Elfriede Jelinek and most arthropods. I love everything about summer and fall, am distrustful of spring, and fickle about winter. I can forgive almost anything under the sun as long as it is honest.

If you want to tell me something, send it to helenqzou at gmail dot com.
