After finish reading a book of history, I had nightmare last night. Some historic books can be a lot more scary than fictions like 1984.

@sophia if you look at the ancient graffiti on the walls of Pompeii you already realize shitposting isn't merely an old form, it is the human condition.

I just realized that the different languages or social medias certainly dicide who are the readers. I should choose my platform and language more carefully when I want to express anything.

I do not have a bowl in my dormitory, so I heated instant noodles in my plastic water cup. Even if I cleaned my cup with water, the smell of instant noodles haunted for several days. Today I cleaned the cup carefully with dish-washing liquid, but the cup smells like dish-washing liquid now :(
