ChunZhu (蠢猪 – Stupid Pig) is a mid twenties male Cantonese-Chinese-American from a lower middle working class immigrant family. I attended the University of California Berkeley and graduated after four years with a degree in International Political Economy.
I am currently working as an English trainer at Microsoft Beijing’s Advanced Technology Center.
I am a jack of all trades and master of none. I was a mediocre student at Berkeley, usually ranked just above the mean, participating occasionally in classes, and gained minor respect from a small number of my professors. I speak English, Spanish, Cantonese, and Mandarin, but am fluent (barely) only in English and am nearly illiterate when it comes to Chinese. I have worked a variety of jobs and performed adequately though without any distinction, starting out as a janitor at a movie theatre before becoming a dishwasher, photographer’s assistant, resident’s adviser, event assistant, accountant, an English teacher at a Guangdong university, and
now, an English trainer.
I did some volunteering as a tutor for new immigrant children in Chinatown and was a high school cross country assistant coach in my spare time. I participated in a large variety of sports, gaining a yellow belt and an award in judo, ran a decent but unremarkable time at the Bay to Breakers, and rumbled with my friends during weekend backyard football games. I played many computer games but rarely to the end, was involved in the development of a text based online game but quit after coding a raccoon, and wrote after action reports which were nominated for a hall of fame award, though it failed to win.
I am nothing special. I go through life doing what I want and what is necessary, rarely amazing or disgusting anyone in the process. I write this blog for no purpose and don’t expect this thing to become very popular. I predict that due to lack of interest, this blog
will soon has faded away like the millions of other abandoned blogs out there after a few months of obscurity…
…but while it’s around, I hope you enjoy the words of Stupid Pig. Thank you for reading.
