About me

Gender MALE
Industry Student
Occupation Anthropology
Location Canterbury, Kent, United Kingdom
Introduction My name is Michael Rivera, and I am a Filipino-Chinese, 18-year-old, bisexual student living in Canterbury, but originally from Hong Kong. Here, I write about my daily life, my experiences, my aspirations, my expectations, my mistakes, my family, my friends, my thoughts, my feelings and my interests. I yearn to be rational, but I lose my cool habitually. I'm a sucker for television series, beautiful beaches, lime margaritas, the adventure of travel, and books considered 'classics'. Also look out for my reviews on the latest TV, my musings on global events, my finds from across the Internet, stuff related to anthropology, and some tirades on the annoying idiosyncrasies in people today.

You get to ride the big roller coaster three times in a row. What will keep your dad from taking a bite out of your candy apple?

He'll be lighting up a cigarette, increasing his chances of getting a heart attack, a stroke, chronic pulmonary disease, emphysema, and cancers of the larynx, mouth, the pancreas and the lungs. My candy apple? I'd be glad if he took a bite out of that instead.
