Recite π as a binary decimal, if you wish. This page is updated annually, subject to my current time zone. On π day, 2014, at about 15:9.26, I ate a chocolate pie (those small ones) during a Chinese literature class, got nearly choked, and had to leave the classroom to search for water... Thank you … Continue reading π Day Memories
An over 1,800-year-old poem revisited :).
So, here we are. A few days back in California, I asked a few people how they were a year ago. Well, on the upside, one thing that I have learned is the triviality in organizing events of one's life in boxes of "years", maybe birthdays could make more sense. I wanted to say how … Continue reading Re: MMXVII
Another very short one. I just printed out my last assignment of the week, and decided to spend another few minutes writing (personally) before I head for a Café (to grab a non-caffeinated drink alone, of course), and hopefully finish the problem set soon after.

In order to finish some essays, I have been digging through my archives painstakingly. Here's a trivial find. From my 2014 Chronicle. Translation approaching. 绝对的寂静里， 深的模糊 是无尽世界的棋子 还是岁月旅人的眼睛 他们单纯地向未知跋涉， 最初的 却不是最后的 恐惧可以解除 只是一瞬 却为剧变的天地铄出光芒 在我所及之处 恰是我不可即之殇： 那将发生， 你将归来， 那也是很久远的事了 这层当下延伸至未可知的迷雾 也遮挡不了那点遥远的旋转的光锥。 星星或许也很远 或许更远 我只能看到千年， 那不是我的世界 那是未来的领地了 此去期年， 忘掉了， 和努力阅读自然的故事时一样 再看看自己的过去。 Link to original work: user.qzone.qq.com/775842684/blog/1419872866/
Hang on. -- to gravitation. A bunch of family friends were in my living room. After cutting a Wassermelon, introducing Prof. Carl Sagan (whose picture was smiling at us on the dining table), and discussing my new semesters' resolution... I took out my laptop and showed them Titan, red giants, and M 31, etc. with … Continue reading Earth, #2
