Share 30
2017-5-17 11:51
Strictly speaking, I am still a step away from turning 30. Here I just want to write down my feelings for the soon approaching 30. 30 in Chinese traditional culture is quite special which is shown in the Chinese saying that a man should be independent at the age of 30. In many people's mind, someone should have already achieved some important things in life at this age including having formed his/her family, having climbed to a certain level on the ladder of ca ...

Share What I didn't know
2017-4-27 17:27
In the past half year, quite a lot of emotional tumult has been witnessed in my life. For some time, I was even sightly depressed. One of my friends even suggested me to seek for professional advice. Nothing made me happy. I was utterly disappointed with myself and with my life. About two and half years ago when I was hunting for a job after securing my master degree, I wrote this blog about how harsh reality hit me in a totally unexpected way and in a way sort of dragged me ...

Share My Bike?
2017-3-19 10:17
My Bike? Last weekend, I was hanging out in the downtown with my friend and sister. We were walking at a public spare when all of a sudden a heated arguing between a student and a middle-aged woman arrested our attention. Out of curiosity, we all stopped to look around and found that they were arguing over an Ofo bike which recently got quite popular in this city along with two other bike-sharing companies including Mo-bike. From what we observ ...

Share Random Thoughts from Old Time (2)
2017-3-16 10:37
7. Life teaches us a lot of lessons which I believe that we would be far better off with first hand experience regarding to those lessons rather than second hand one. This also perfectly explains why we cannot lead a decent life after being lectured by others all these years. Our parents always believe that we should follow their advice because they have been through the journey we are taking and because they are giving their hard-earned lessons to us so that we can ...

I wrote these about two years ago. I have been sorting them and decide to post some of them here. They are raw feelings and therefore can be very subjective. 1. If I were an unfinished song, would you be the lost part? If I wrote down the lyrics, would you compose the melody or vice verse? If I didn't tell you the underlying meaning of it, would you be able to figure it out yourself? If I hummed the song by moonlight shadow, would you hum it with m ...

Share A Pet
2017-3-5 09:17
I watched “ A Dog ’ s Purpose ” this afternoon. It is not a particularly good movie. But it touche d me all the same. I had had a few pets when I was little, dogs and cats. Even though I grew up in an extended family and have a younger sister, I still treated my pets like my best friends. My parents were away a lot and I constantly had bickers with my sister and cousins, so it made sense for me to treat my pets like my best bu ...

Share Slow down and Savor the Moment
2017-2-28 11:33
Everything is in a rush. Flowers are rushed to blossom to bring fragrance to and lighten the mood of people. Deadlines are rushed to be met so that more of our precious time can be saved. Everybody is in a rush, on the way to a workplace, to a school, to a tourist destination etc.. Children are rushing to grow up, trying all those things that are way beyond their age and behaving in certain ways that are not becoming to th ...

Share Spring Festival
2017-2-3 17:38
Growing up in a teeny-tiny village, Spring Festival had been my favorite Festival for a very long time. It was a time for materialistic abundance and family reunion; it was also a time for bright smile and loud laughter. In my memory, my family would start preparing for the celebration of Chinese New Year almost a month ahead of its approach. A variety of activities would be organized in line as we approached this meaningful Festival. My mom usually would buy all sorts of co ...

Share Belief
2017-2-3 09:10
Belief Do you have any belief? If yes, what is it? Have you ever doubted your belief? Belief is not a topic frequently brought up in Chinese people's daily conversation. Instead of talking about rather abstract as well as philosophical subjects like belief, we show far more passion towards profane stuff such as education, money and relationship etc. The majority of us are so caught up in the trivialities of day-to-day business that we are not able to s ...

Share Fear
2017-1-13 16:23
To be able to live without fear is probably the greatest thing in this world. But this sort of ability doesn't come naturally or easily. To be fearless is a kind of status I would relentlessly chase after. I forget since when the feeling of fear started accumulating in my deep mind and sometimes it would almost drive me nuts. When I was little, I was afraid of getting bad score and facing up with my mother's burst of anger and verbal abuse or even physical punishment. & ...

  • Fear 2017-8-20 17:04

    These are the things I have feared that actually happened to me in my life of 66 years.
    1. Getting drafted and sent to Vietnam in 1970.
    2. Student gang members threats to teacher.
    3. Gun pulled on me by a student.
    4. Mugged by gang member with knife walking to store.
    5, Car jacked at gun point
    I could go on but my point is these things that happened to me in the USA,still cause fear to people in the USA. I do not fear these things in China.
