27 Things About Me


My name is Charles. In the picture above, I'm on the left and we're eating dog in Beijing.

I'm a 25 year old writer with an interesting view of the world. The type of guy that thinks Dog Owners Are Weird, Dating Doesn't Make Any Sense and People Have Way Too Many Different Types Of Laughs.

I created this blog to share my unique perspective on things because people do lots of weird **** and it's funny to talk about it.
