Of all the Chinese novels, "A Dream of Red Mansions" (also known as "The Story Of the Stone") is certainly the best. I read it again and again, and every time I always find something new. There is nearly everything about ancient China in it.

I've been reading Harry Potter these days. After 10 years since I read it last time, it looks even more interesting.

modern STEM education has created an army of naive computer scientists that know how to apply processes to data but are completely oblivious to the philosophical implications and criticisms of their work

I decide to listen to new songs, before I become too outdated.

I just found that songs on Billboard are so different from what I usually listen. They are fast ,complicated, high density music, with very emotional, straightfoward lyrics, and they use rap and electroacoustic a lot. Musical taste of the time is changing so fast. I feel like an outdated old man already.

Youtube pushs me similar contents all the time, like all the websites do. This algorithm is so boring. What I want is something totally different, something new. Similar contents make me dull.

Beautiful night. Street is quiet nearly no one else here. The moon shines like golden ship lonely across the ocean of night sky, colorful light of bright stars though depth of millions of light years in the ocean of infinity.

There's a difference between resting from political discussions and attempting an apolitical life. An apolitical life is one of tacit approval for the status quo, and is rightfully condemned by all as an unjust privilege only a select few have access to. But resting from political action is actually a powerfully political act of preserving strength, being tactical, and striking an active blow against the moral exhaustion that Fascism thrives on.

Oh, D disk is still safe, only my user folder is gone. Not too bad.

My laptop makes me mad every few months. Just now, my windows was broken, when I restarted, my accout switched to "TEMP". With some “repairing” I found from the internet, I finally got my accout back, but all the documents was deleted ! Now my laptop becomes a new one again.

Everytime before I talk with my adviser, I get nervous. But I have to go to his office to discuss my project asap, or I would be too nervous to do it.

@sternenschwein Jean Vanier is a good Catholic theologian when it comes to disability. He started the L'Arche houses, a program where you don't have to be Catholic to be in it, where people with intellectual disabilities n fully able folx live together in a communal house.
Guy Gutierrez has a work on liberation theology that is beautiful. He is one of the founder and goes in depth into what it is. Simone Weil never officially joined the church, but is a beautiful mystic and political theologian

On twitter, there is nothing but politics, politics, politics, and it made me anxious everytime I open it. So I decide to return to mastodon these days. It seems better here.

Always find it interesting to read books. But hard to make friends with people, so my life is mostly boring.

Politics in China 

What's more, a few friends of mine, most netizens in China, they just buy the lies and support the cops. Some of them even living in Europe or Hong Kong, with no GFW,still stand by cops. Don't they know the violence of cops is a lot worse than violence of demonstrators? It seems they are insane, or I am.

Politics in China 

Politic news in HK makes me anxious these days. Media in mainland China unfairly choose information favorable for the government and miss the rest. Even one of the largest media told lies. When a cop shot a girl to blind, with several photos as proof, the media blamed on demonstrators as the responsible person. They even put together unrelated photo of another girl, and said this is the girl who hurt,she deserves it. What a shame.

I just found an interesting video, to teach Chinese chess in English. I like Chinese chess very much, and I am one of the best Chinese chess players in my university. Any one interested in it?
