Lately, for some dark, inapparent reason I have been mentally captured by the phenomenon of matches and matchbooks. I have been tracing my brainwaves back to every known source, over and over, and I have no idea what could have ever triggered this sudden obsession over something as a match, or a matchbook.
Honestly, it's getting ridiculous. Matchbooks. Safety matches. Collecting them. Collecting their boxes. Lighting them. Firing a canon with them.
Maybe it was all…Continue

A wise, old, Chinese man once said that somewhere out there, somewhere far away, there’s a cave. All the pretty girls from all over the world go in there when times get cold and dark, to take cover. Now the weather has been nice for two days, and anywhere you can see there’s pretty girls flocking the streets.
Men ask themselves the following question, over and over: where the hell is this cave!?

Life tends to be a it on the busy side lately, or maybe that's just because here always seems something to do around Jiuba Daxue (what did I promise again if I wouldn't keep up my daily writings? A case of beer? Eternal suffering?). There's classes, all kinds of distractions like ping-pong on an improvised table, and apparently it's birthday month. I love the sound of merrymaking and African drums at 4 in the morning.
Another thing keeping the mind of yours truly occupied is the…Continue

Also the name of my radio show here on campus at Beijing University of Technology*, but I doubt any of your circles run close to our little Beigongda planet over here.
In case you’re in the neighborhood – it’s between the 4th and 3rd east ring, closest subway would have to be either Jinsong or Panjiayuan (line 10). Line 14 is being drilled underneath our feet as we speak, to be opened in 2014.
Either way, you are missing out on very few things . So…Continue

Before success comes in any person's life, they're sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a person, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of people do.

Instead of focusing on how much you can accomplish, focus on how much you can absolutely love what you're doing.

When love beckons to you, follow him, though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you, yield to him, though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you, believe in him, though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.

Life holds no promises as to what will come your way. You must search for your own ideals and work toward reaching them. Life makes no guarantees as to what you’ll have. It just gives you time to make choices and to take chances and to discover whatever secrets that might come your way. If you are willing to take the opportunities you are given and utilize the abilities…

My first job test a computer programmer was to alter data or rather translate Microsoft 2007 into my mothertongue languagua which is Lingala, that was done and I got a job!
So much has been given to me; I have no time to ponder over that which has been denied.
