About golddigger1990

Lots of times I use golddigger1990 as my username. Some people find it funny and others feel embarrassing. I chose this because when I first learned English I didn’t know that gold digger commonly refers to someone who likes a rich boyfriend; I chose it for the literal meaning: someone who works in the gold mining industry.

Both of my parents work in the gold mining industry in China. They are engineers, my dad specializes in designing the ship that mines gold in rivers and my mom designs and supervises the construction of cable cars for moving heavy equipment up mountains. And since they love their job, they wanted me to be a civil engineer when I grow up too. I was called by them “little gold digger” very early in my life.

But I grew up and became a programmer instead :P
