There are days I get so annoyed with all the shit that’s happening that I can’t help but feel frustrated despite knowing ultimately none of the Mickey Mouse bullshit [1] matters when I’m in a hospital bed.

And today is one of those days.

[1] One of my favourite movie quotes of all time








It’s like the beginning of a new era.


Photos are piling up in my hard drive once again. Not sure how I stopped uploading photos to Facebook but I do have this bad tendency of forgetting to keep up with things like that. Now that I’ve put that down on my todo list, I’ll be sure to get to it soon.



應該是下禮拜開始會去一間start-up實習,做手機的App (or ㄟ劈劈 as they call it)。我最多只能撥出一兩天的時間過去吧,但這個禮拜一定要惡補一下iOS的東西。他們好像以為我WordPress很強,要我幫他們寫plug-in,可是我從來沒自己動手做過,希望不會死太慘。

Been working lots and always running out of time for anything. Just went back to Tainan on Thursday and back to Taipei again on Saturday. Can’t believe I’m going to meet another company next Monday and possibly ask for even more work. As if I don’t have my hands full already :SImage

I miss summmmmmar

After a year of not doing much career-wise. Work start piling up all of a sudden. Last weekend I went to a tech career fair thing and spoke to quite a few companies. Of those, five I found intrigued. I didn’t take working in Taiwan too seriously because I thought the tech companies are still stuck in the early millennia, but apparently not these, probably because they are startups. Now I can’t wait to finish my current project, but seems like it will drag-on for quite some time, given the escalating scope I’m seeing.

I stopped updating few months back because one day I suddenly decided to make an effort to go to bed early everyday. 10-11pm that was. For health reason of course, not that I just learned that its a good habit, but I felt I should be more careful now for better recovery. Before I tended to write right before I go to bed, almost always after midnight. Somehow I felt particularly inspired during that time. Midnight melochony? When theres nothing good on tv and nothing u should be doing besides going to bed. A blank time slot. Meant for reflect if not recall or at worst regret.

Well. I wrote that about a year ago on a train ride and never got to update it. I actually procrastinated posting a post on the reason for why I procrastinated. Beat that!! Nothing special today, just feel like starting to pick up blogging again while still keeping myself in regular sleeping schedule. Have made a little to do list and everyday goals, gonna keep myself accountable this time.

If you ever tried to comment on my last few posts, you would notice that you can’t. I didn’t close the comment by accident. It was a concious decision and I’m sticking with it.

I used to track who reads my blog. From the regular WordPress stats or Statscounter, which gives more detailed information such as the visitor’s IP address, OS, and browser versions. You can see referral links, or from which website the visitor comes from. Why? Because I can I guess. Well, I did use it to see if this girl I liked read my blog. It’s bad for a techie to get stalkish (or more precisely, counter-stalkish in this case).

I wanted to know if people read whatever I write, and I liked comments. But I was writing for my readers. I could never keep at it. Sometimes I don’t think I have anything interesting to write about. Other times I feel I’m over-exposing myself, especially when I know that people will read it, even who specifically.

Few days ago I wrote my first post with comments closed. It felt good. I was documenting what was on my mind, for myself. That was enough to keep me writing. Having visit counts, likes, or comments only distract me. Sure I would feel good knowing people enjoy reading my blog, but what if no one reads, or stops commenting? Does that mean I should stop too? I shouldn’t need to seek encouragement for something I enjoy doing already.

Now, write like no one is reading.
