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



Exactly like in Vancouver. A good dinner with my favourite dish with one of my absolute favourite people.

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.

Slow your footsteps down by 66%.

Put on your good headphone.

Pick a tune that goes well with your speed.

Crank up the volume to 83%.

Take off your glasses if you can.

And watch the city slow down for you.





This got me thinking… 現在這個年紀停止做蠢事會不會太早?

TV is screwing up my bed time schedule.

More specifically, I stay up watching 新聞挖挖哇 almost every night (Monday to Friday that is, because they show reruns during the weekend, and I would have already seen them). I used to watch it because my mom does, and I find it a good way to spend some time with her. But over time I find myself watching it even when I’m by myself.

The show runs from 11pm to 12:30am. And after that I have to do some mindless web surfing for another hour or so before I can really go to bed, that pushes my bed time to 1ish to 2ish. That’s no good. Plus I’m picking up another habit of writing blog posts (like this one) before I go to bed, and this always take longer than I expect.

I remember back in 2009 when I came back for almost 6 months, the show that kept me up was 全民最大黨 (I still like the name 悶鍋, not sure why they changed it). Oh my how I have aged.
