  • Something to tell the world!

    Hi there,

    "May my heart be my guiding key." That's what I say all the time (Quote: MoM, KH X Back Cover). I feel like joining this site is an adventure yet to begin. I don't know what will happen or will be happening. I hope you can be part of my adventure too!

    Meanwhile, I'm a freshman chemistry student at the University of Technology in Eindhoven and a volunteer of the student team SensUs, where we organize an international student competition to improve personal healthcare. I like to play piano/basketball. My hobbies are making quizzes(on Kahoot.it and I'm always open for improvements) and learning new cultures. That's also the reason why I like travelling. A personality of mine is really eager at learning new things. I'm always open to new technologies, like new inventions, but also discussing social matters. Also, I am a hardcore Disney and Kingdom Hearts fan. There are still a lot of things I like or I like to do...but then you would be bored to read all of them 😉. (If not, just read below this part)

    All in all, I'm quite a crazy guy. You shouldn't be afraid to text me! No matter who or what you are XD. I like to chat or send emails anyways. Thanks for reading and I hope I'll meet ya here on pen-pal!

    With kind regards, Henry

    PS: I'd like to improve the languages above here (I prefer Skype for speaking and mailing for writing)....just call me to help you with Dutch or Chinese.

  • A trick or piece of advice

    I think everyone has felt this kind of uneasiness, loneliness, uncertainty about yourself. Those fears have been haunting me for years. You are scared because of humiliation, feeling you don't belong to your friends, colleagues, neighbours, family or even when it gets worse: the world.
    Every life, which includes mine, has a lot of obstacles to conquer. Some people need to get help or have to believe that they overcome the barrier. It's really NOT that easy.
    My advice would be to always trust yourself and be confident to do everything you care about and cherish the most and hang on them. Try to seek out for help. There'll always someone to help you. You're not alone.
    Also, ask yourself what you need the most. You might be confused and lost track of your thoughts. Don't be easily brainwashed by people you can't trust logically. You have to combine your heart and thoughts to form your conclusion. What do you really seek? Fake love or friendship (for example)? You won't immediately see it, but don't jump into conclusions so fast.
    Last but not least. Be happy every day. Be proud with everything you did. Even the things that weren't all that pretty. But all those things define who you are. All those memories became you. You should be hanging on to those and be proud of it. Try to understand this if you don't see it immediately because I know how difficult this process was.

  • My opinion on human nature

    My opnion about people is that we, as human, should try to pursue your dreams whatever it is. I think living is "useful" when you've got a purpose or an achievement to get. Sometimes we can feel sadness in our hearts when things don't go as anticipated, and sometimes it gets even worse that you want to make an end to yourself. But we must never forget hope and try to make love (not the LOVE from undertale though 😉 ) and make the day better than the day before. Carpe diem guys!

    Also I feel like we must accept everyone as it is. We must work together to make the world a better place, even there's a lot of controversy in what we think. Together we stand strong and that's why our future is looking bright.

  • I always enjoy talking about...

    I like to chat about anything. I don't care who it is or what it is.

    When you're talking about travelling, games, cartoons, good music, then you're on the right page 😉.

  • My interests in other cultures

    The languages, the traditions and especially FOOD!!!

  • Something uncommon about me

    From time to time I want to learn and question things. Here's a list what I want to learn or want to understand. Feel free to help. Your help is just what I need!

    -Learning languages (Any language is welcome)
    -Programming (e.g. w/ Javascript)
    -Chinese poems or novels (such as 红楼梦)
    -Physics (every subject within physics is worth sharing it XD, e.g. rocket science)
    -The Culture/Rituals of every country

    NOTE: This list is gonna be larger 😉

    Also, I like reading books in my spare time. I'm reading at the moment: "Brief answers to the big questions" by Stephen Hawking and "The Dark Tower" by Stephen King, 《水调歌头》by 苏轼. (Last update: 9-12-2019)
