As a day well spent brings happy sleep, so a life well lived gives happy death. — Leonardo Da Vinci

Time moves in one direction. It carries our past and current memories along with our growth. Time also creates our life. It always helps us to look back on all of our great and worst moments when we are up and down. However, do you ever think about what kind of life you would like to spend? Or what is the meaning of life for you and do you enjoy it now?

"Soul,” this new Pixar movie caught my eyes…

“First they came for the Communists,
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist

Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist

Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist

Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew

Then they came for me And there was no one left To speak…


“Programming isn’t about what you know; it’s about what you can figure out”— Chris Pane, author of Learn to code

Learning literature and language is always my main aspiration, why? I have to admit that I’m not the kind of science and technological person. When I was in elementary school, the classmate next to me was able to tell everybody 7+6=13, right after our teacher asked him this question; while I could still calculate the number with my fingers underneath the table and gave out a wrong answer. So, can you imagine a person with the above background could learn…

A few days ago, a cruel gun shooting happened in Atlanta which caused eight people to die, including six women of Asian descent. The murderer claimed that he is sex-addicted and carried out the shooting to eliminate his “temptation.” At a news conference, a Giorgia sheriff said that the shooter just “had a very bad day.” It was shocking but after people found that he posted racist Covid-19 T-shirts on Facebook earlier this year, we could understand why this sheriff…


Have you ever experienced negative people in the office? Would you immerse yourself in the bad energy as well or cope with it wisely?

Working takes over almost half the time of a day; some people will see their job as their whole life, while others will consider it as a tool for surviving. No matter what circumstance you are in now, what you can’t avoid is you would always encounter some colleagues who prefer complaining or winning all the time. I won’t deny that sometimes letting off the steam together, especially when the topic is about company or bosses…


Life is a counted-down journey, when you were born, it won’t stop for you. — Anonymous

Have you ever thought that one day your beloved person will be gone all of a sudden? Have you ever thought that you are unable to control your life all at once? These thoughts only pass through my mind just for a moment before and I never think over it until recently.

The current outbreak of the Covid-19 every day on the news shows us not only the panic but the weakness of the human beings in front of the disease or nature. I…


“Technology now allows people to connect anytime, anywhere, to anyone in the world, from almost any device. This is dramatically changing the way people work, facilitating 24/7 collaboration with colleagues who are dispersed across time zones, countries, and continents.” — Michael Dell, Chairman and CEO of Dell

Working remotely is a flexible working model. There are less supervision and more freedom for you to adjust your working rhythm. It happens usually in the field of freelancers, designers, or programmers. However, it’s not limited to these types of jobs, especially during this difficult time, it is applied widely in the field…


A girl should be two things: who and what she wants – Coco Chanel

If you think back 100 years, could you have ever imagined that women can stand out from the crowds of men to express their talents? Take some celebrities, for instance, Oprah Winfrey, a famous talk show host, Angela Merkel, the German chancellor and Yin Wen Tsai, current Taiwanese president. The famous female representatives mentioned above are from North America, Europe, and Asia. Undoubtedly, the gender equality around most of the world has obviously developed. I’m glad especially the place I live in, Taiwan, is a country…


People rather tend to believe in bad, than in good. — Giovanni Boccaccio

When everyone pays attention to the epidemic status in Asia, a far distant continent, Italy, is suddenly in the global spotlight because of its rapidly increasing number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus. The case number jumped from 16 cases to 80 cases in a day. Sooner or later, the number reaches 100 cases and now became over 1000 cases. Italy sealed off 12 towns in Lombardy and Veneto to avoid the spread of the epidemic. The Carnival in Venice was closed earlier than usual, the Fashion Week…


The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis — Dante Alighieri

A few months ago, you would never have thought the panic of SARS will happen again after 17 years. Talking and laughing with friends naturally suddenly becomes a risk. What you can see in the Mass Rapid Transport now is people wear multiple colors of face masks, the only way to communicate is from the eyes. After the outbreak of Coronavirus from our neighbor— China in Jan. 2020, we had the first patient who came back from Wuhan for…
