Quit

Two memebers of one of my teams left me today, and I feel a little depressed. Everytime this kind of things happen, I will check myself and ask why.

There are several resons that I can conclude, listed below.

Firstly, belief. Simon Sinek pointed that first why then trust. Those people who do not beleive what I believe will not trust me or trust what I am doing. Let put it more clear, if they are not interested in the thing, they feel bored or meaningless, they quit.

Secondly, attaction. There are moments I am totally attracted by some leaders and I think it is also true that if you are attractive enough, you will get more people who would like to cooperate with you. If you are not so attractive, they quit.

Thirdly, benefits. If they see no value in it, if they could not get anything for what they are doing, they quit.

Yeah, something like this.

Moved all my blogs to wordpress.com

WordPress is just awesome and I know it.

Firstly, all my blogs are in http://wanderseeme.blogbus.com/, it was cool but it is just a little stupid and unprofessional, I finally got fed up with it. Then I planed to move it from blogbus.com to wordpress.com.

Later on, I moved blogbus.com to 163.com with its online moving tool: http://blog.163.com/clone/clone.html?fromToolBarCopy. It is because I found out that moving blogbus.com to wordpress.com directly is not possible.

Finally, I found a tool named “blogs-to-wordpress”, very cool and robust, all I need to concern is a few key strokes:

sudo python BlogsToWordpress.py -s http://wanderseeme.blog.163.com/

Yeah now I am here.

回答:一二九

为纪念“一二·九”爱国运动77周年,弘扬和传承“一二·九”精神,清华大学2012年“清春激扬,华歌绽放”一二·九革命歌曲演唱会129日晚六点许在清华大学综合体育馆顺利拉开了帷幕。经过23支队伍的精彩演出,软件·教研联队在第四幕的第四个登上了舞台,开始了自己的精彩表演。这首专为合唱改编的《故乡的云》,编曲优美,感情丰富,音域宽广,对合唱者要求高,合唱难度大。但是软件教研联队的同学完美地演绎了这首《故乡的云》,深深的表达了游子对故乡的思念。最终我们完美的表演征服了评委,当演唱结束,评委给出了我们全场最高的43盏灯,我们用完美的表现证明了自己。经过组织方的统计,软件教研联队获得全场第一名、艺术水准特等奖、最佳组织奖和最佳领队奖。“软件教研联队”这个名称是从2009年开始使用的,由软件学院和教育研究院的一年级研究生同学们组成,并且在历年的一二九合唱中都取得了优异的成绩,前三代的联队分别获得了2009年、2010年综合一等奖,2011年最佳合唱提名奖。做为第四代联队的领队,今年的成绩算是对我们全体老师和同学的一个不错的回答。

        12月9日的那个夜晚,当我站在领奖台上,和阎肃老先生、金铁霖老先生热切地握手时,我不断问着自己这样两个问题:为什么要有一二九合唱?我们从一二九合唱中收获了什么?

        后来我找到了答案。

为什么要参加一二九?不经一二九,不是清华人。这是研会主席张瑜婷学姐在一二九开始之初对我们的宣传公告中的一句话,这句话让我感触很深。或许在全国各地都在开展经济建设的时候清华继续唱红显得那么不合时宜,或许老师同学们在繁忙的工作学习科研的时候准备如此宏大壮观的艺术盛事是那么的劳民伤财,或许我们这些组织者、工作人员、领队们都倍感压力终日忙碌得不可开交,可是我们为了什么呢?我相信,我们为的肯定不仅仅是那些奖项,在排练中,在宣传中,在制作新闻视频的时候,在上场前彩排动员的时候,直到上台表演那一刻,我们心中充满的不是灯数多少获奖集合,我们满怀的是和老师同学在一起时的点点滴滴嬉笑怒骂,满怀的是团结一心众志成城犹如家庭般的温暖,满怀的是一路走来辛酸苦楚对自己带来的成长和锻炼。而这些记忆,这些欢乐和苦恼,这些温暖和期待,才是一二九对于清华每一名师生的意义,它能让我们穿过历史的车轮,感受到清华前辈们当时的团结和热情,感受到自强不息厚德载物的清华情怀,感受到作为清华人作应面对的挑战和所应肩负的责任。不经一二九,不是清华人,这句话简练有力,含义深刻。

 我们又从一二九中收获了什么?

 首先是喜悦,我们付出,所以我们快乐。在这个世界上,再没有比劳动更快乐的事儿了。排练从1020日那个周六开始,一周两次,到129日当天从未间断,不管刮风下雨,不管夜色已浓,不管将近半夜疲倦不堪,我们从无半句怨言。还记得第一次排练我们无一缺勤兴致勃勃来学习一二九精神;还记得暴风雪的那个夜晚我们在教室里尽情地唱响一二九之歌,用热情将寒冷和潮湿挡在门外;还记得演出当天下午我们在东阶梯教室毫不松懈,百尺竿头更进一步,上场前三个小时还在努力练声。就像学院党组副书记,我们敬爱的辅导员老师彭凌老师说的那样,我们站在台上,就已经是胜利者了。是的,合唱的结果只是一个总结,而我们辛勤付出的过程才带给了我们最纯正的喜悦,才让我们真正体会到了劳动成果的甘甜和宝贵。

 其次是友谊,同学之间的友谊,同学和老师之间的友谊,学院之间兄弟姐妹的友谊,学校工作人员和领队之间的友谊,一二九在场下带给我们的,是这些同甘苦共患难的革命友谊。学院通过一二九,加强了彼此之间的交流与合作;工作人员和领队通过一二九,更加深入了解了清华的每个角落和每项事务,更加深了彼此的认同感和信任;同学们通过一二九,结识了不同专业不同背景但志趣爱好相似的好朋友。在这个寒冷的冬天,我们收获了温暖如春的友谊。

 最后我们还得到了知识的增长和能力的提升,我们对一二九革命运动有了更深入的认识,又了解了一段可歌可泣的清华历史,更是掌握了基础的合唱技巧。对于工作人员和领队,我们学到了更多,我们锻炼了自己组织和领导的能力,更加熟悉了清华的制度规范和决策流程,还是的我们的一直更加坚强,信心更加坚定。一二九更加让我们有信心和有能力完成祖国交给我们的任务和嘱托。

 这就是我对一二九的回答。

My First Mac

I am currently using a MacBook (MC516, if you are an Apple guru) and I love it very much. It is my first Mac and also the last one (Mid 2010) of the MacBook product line. It helped me a lot on everything. Here I’d like to write something about it.
I bought it at Jan. 30th, 2011, at price of 7300 RMB. At that time I was working on an iOS project but sadly enough I didn’t even have a Mac! After I come back home I became stuck in the dilemma that I have something to do but I do not have the tool, my parents saw my sad face and they asked me why. “Just buy one, my child,” said dad. And yes we did so. Why I can get a Mac? It is because they love me so much and know I can do better things with it. I named it “HELL”. I’m an optimistic person, I just need find it awesome to have a partner which denotes opposite. I mainly did three things with it, using it, upgrading it and love it.
Using it is of great fun. This little machine runs so smooth and fast that I can handle things very quick without any delay. With this Mac, I accomplished a lot of important projects such as contest apps, graduation thesis and outsource projects. With this notebook, I successfully arranged so many social activities which also taught me a lot about leadership and ability. With this computer, I finished many courses with high scores. With this powerful machine, I played a lot of games and made many friends.
As to upgrading, I bought two memory modules at Nov. 9th, 2011, at a price of 310 RMB. Now today I bought an optical drive at a price of 115 RMB, then an 256GB ADATA SSD (ASP900S3-256GM-B) at a price of 1029 RMB. So for now, the additional expense is 1454 RMB, 8654 RMB in total. After upgrading, my MacBook became much more powerful.
I just love my Mac so much.

Stargazing in Guilin

 

As the sun sets over the hills in Guilin each reliably cloudless night, dazzling ruby red and garnet hues paint the mountain peaks in the eastern skyline, deepening almost imperceptibly until they are indistinguishable from black. That would be the grand finale at many resort areas. But here, it is merely the opening act.

After the nearest star had set one evening last August, I peered through the Meade 20 centimeters telescope in the 3 meters observatory of the Hotel Tianma in Guilin to see the main attraction: the Alpha Centauri stars that, without the benefit of magnification, look like one; the misty, yellow Swan Nebula; and the Scorpio Constellation’s bi-winged Butterfly Cluster.?

This beautiful forest, roughly 800 miles south of Guilin, offers some of the clearest views of the Milky Way in the world, making it a natural home to a cluster of high-tech research observatories used by international astronomers. The resorts at Guilin are no outliers. Stargazing has increasingly become an alternative to traditional after-sundown dining and drinking at hotels and resorts. Call it night life for nerds.?

For people who live in the cities, the only way to see the stars in safety and in comfort without worrying about what might happen in the dark is at a resort,” said Feng Lin, a guide from Letu Tour Company, the biggest tour company in Guilin.

“?I first encountered stargazing tourism several years ago at the Qingcheng Mountain in Sichuan, a 4000 mu resort with sweeping views of Qingcheng Mountain. Instead of drinking beer at the bar or attending a party I joined Wanqi Li, an astronomer, who led our group of 12 to the roof of the hotel’s nine-story main building. The relatively high perch and resort lighting-designed to angle down rather than shine up-preserved the dark setting for his three 50-minute nightly public stargazing sessions (50 yuan a person).?

Mrs. Li oriented us by pointing out the North Star, the Big and Little Dippers and the constellation Orion, all visible to the naked eye, of course. But what appeared to be a fuzzy cluster in the sky became clear with binoculars: they were the seven stars in the Pleiades Group. And moving to the 20 centimeters reflector telescope, far-off planets come into the sharp focus you see in Hubble Space Telescope images: Saturn and its rings, as well as a quartet of Jupiter’s moons precisely lined up beside it.?

Newly in possession of a 18 centimeters computerized telescope, Mrs. Li still leads stargazing sessions, which she started 10 years ago. Some 6,000 gazers a year take her sky tour, according to the resort management. “I remind them that Earth is a starship, and we are just passing through,” said Mrs. Li, who distributes Yinhe candies after the show.?

That sense of floating through the galaxy is underscored in the southwestern China, where low population density and favorable weather combine to make for particularly starry skies. Near Guilin, Kunming, the Boulders Resort abjures the science of astronomy in favor of the lore of astrology in its “Dining With the Stars” dinners held three times each year, on the summer solstice and the spring and fall equinox dates.?

I had a chance to stargaze out west firsthand this spring during a visit to Jiuzhaigou. After a day of white water kayaking I took part in a decidedly low-tech session at the new town Pi Xian, an opulent 173-room resort on the Qingqing ski slopes near Chengdu. Instead of using an observatory or even a telescope, guests sat around a bonfire on the pool deck, faces facing heavenward as the leader, Jie Liang, pointed out constellations and planets visible above the mountains.?

With the planet Venus shining in the west, the overall order of the night sky emerged as the evening progressed. Taking in the panoramic view of the sky was more meditative than scientific, but rewarding nonetheless, especially when a shooting star streaked by.?

“There’s a mystery and wonder about it,” said Mr. Guo, leaning back in his chair to point out the constellation Cassiopeia. “Many people find comfort in the stars. As things are changing around them, the stars stay steady.”?

“?That steadiness was evident in the Yangshuo region of Guilin, where there is little night life to compete with the twinkling sky after dark. Nearby resorts that feature stargazing include Kuaiyue Plaza, a stone’s throw from Hotel Tianma, and Hotel Rugui, which offers guided stargazing nightly, except during full moon phases that wash out the viewing.?

Stargazing at Hotel Tianma is no mere add-on. On my tour there, several gazers took along beers from the bar to the fireside orientation involving charts and diagrams before navigating paths to the observatory marked in dim red to minimize light pollution. Inside, the dome opened and swiveled under the computerized direction of the scope as it lined up stars and constellations, which the six of us took turns viewing over the next hour, murmuring oohs and aahs normally associated with fireworks and giving us plenty to marvel at over dinner after the show.

As we were watching, some of us started to whisper songs, most of the songs are within my knowledge, and what I remember clearly is ?I Hope You’ll Come Back?. It is an old song written by Yuhuan Jiang, I love this song very much and at that moment when I was stargazing, I felt a little more motional. I was watching at those shining stars as they were watching at me, we are just so far away from each other but we feel so close as our emotion moves. With the cold beer in hand, the breeze touching my face, the lovely night ahead, I felt peaceful, delightful and moved. I will remember this moment of stargazing and let it cheer me up every time when I feel tired chasing happiness in my life.

 

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year, alsoknown as Spring Festival, is the most important of the traditional Chineseholidays. It is sometimes called the “Lunar New Year” by Englishspeakers. The festival traditionally begins on the first day of the first monthin the Chinese calendar and ends on the 15th which day is calledLantern Festival. Chinese New Year’s Eve is known as Chu Xi. It literally means”Year-pass Eve”.

On the days before theNew Year celebration Chinese families give their home a thorough cleaning.There is a Cantonese saying “Wash away the dirt on Nian Nian Ba”, butthe practice is not usually restricted on Nian Nian Ba (the 28th day of month 12). It is believed the cleaningsweeps away the bad luck of the preceding year and makes their homes ready forgood luck. Purchasing new clothing, shoes, and receiving a hair-cut alsosymbolize a fresh start.

In many households Buddhismor Taoism is prevalent. Taoists, and Buddhists to a lesser extent, will also”send gods”, an example would be burning a paper effigy of Zao Junthe Kitchen God, the recorder of family functions. This is done so that theKitchen God can report to the Jade Emperor of the family household’stransgressions and good deeds. Families often offer sweet foods (such as candy)in order to “bribe” the deities into reporting good things about thefamily.

The biggest event ofany Chinese New Year’s Eve is the dinner every family will have. A dishconsisting of fish will appear on the tables of Chinese families. It is fordisplay for the New Year’s Eve dinner. This meal is comparable to Christmasdinner in the West. In northern China, it is customary to make dumplings afterdinner and have it around midnight. Dumplings symbolize wealth because theirshape is like a Chinese tael. By contrast, in the South, it is customary tomake a new year cake after dinner and send pieces of it as gifts to relativesand friends in the coming days of the new year. In modern practice, manyhouseholds hold parties and even hold a countdown to the new lunar year.Beginning in the 1980s, the CCTV New Year’s Gala was broadcast four hoursbefore the start of the New Year.

The Chinese New Yearcelebrations are marked by visits to kin, relatives and friends, a practiceknown as “Bai Nian”. New clothes are usually worn to signify a newyear. The color red is liberally used in all decorations. Red packets are givento juniors and children by the married and elders.

The First Day is forthe welcoming of the deities of the heavens and earth, officially beginning atmidnight. Many people, especially Buddhists, abstain from meat consumption onthe first day because it is believed that this will ensure longevity for them.Some consider lighting fires and using knives to be bad luck on New Year’s Day,so all food to be consumed is cooked the day before. For Buddhists, the firstday is also the birthday of Budai Luohan, the Buddha-to-be. People also abstainfrom killing animals.

Most importantly, thefirst day of Chinese New Year is a time when families visit the oldest and mostsenior members of their extended family, usually their parents, grandparents orgreat-grandparents.

While fireworks andfirecrackers are traditionally very popular, some regions have banned them dueto concerns over fire hazards, which have resulted in increased number of firesaround New Years and challenged municipal fire departments’ work capacity. Forthis reason, various city governments (e.g., Hong Kong, and Beijing, for anumber of years) issued bans over fireworks and firecrackers in certainpremises of the city. As a substitute, large-scale fireworks have been launchedby governments in many cities to offer citizens the experience.

The Second Day of theChinese New Year is for married daughters to visit their birth parents.Traditionally, daughters who have been married may not have the opportunity tovisit their birth families frequently.

On the second day, theChinese pray to their ancestors as well as to all the gods. They are extra kindto dogs and feed them well as it is believed that the second day is thebirthday of all dogs.

Business people of theCantonese dialect group will hold a ‘Hoi Nin’ prayer to start their business onthe 2nd day of Chinese New Year. The prayer is done to pray that they will beblessed with good luck and prosperity in their business for the year.

The Third Day of theChinese New Year is generally accepted as inappropriate days to visit relativesand friends due to the following schools of thought. People may subscribe toone or both thoughts.

Families who had animmediate kin deceased in the past 3 years will not go house-visiting as a formof respect to the dead, but people may visit them on this day. Some people thenconclude that it is inauspicious to do any house visiting at all. The third dayof the New Year is allocated to grave-visiting instead.

The Fifteenth Day ofthe new year is celebrated as Yuan Xiao Jie. Rice dumplings Tang Yuan, a sweetglutinous rice ball brewed in a soup, is eaten this day. Candles are litoutside houses as a way to guide wayward spirits home. This day is celebratedas the Lantern Festival, and families walk the street carrying lightedlanterns. This day often marks the end of the Chinese New Year festivities.

Chinese New Year isthe longest and most important festivity in the Lunar Calendar. The origin ofChinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because ofseveral myths and traditions. Ancient Chinese New Year is a reflection on howthe people behaved and what they believed in the most. Celebrated in areas withlarge populations of ethnic Chinese, Chinese New Year is considered a majorholiday for the Chinese. and has had influenceon the new year celebrations of its geographic neighbors, as well as cultureswith whom the Chinese have had extensive interaction.

 

 

 

Written at the 14th day in Tsinghua University

I steped in to THU on Aug. 20th, 2012, and formally registered in on Aug. 21th, 2012. It’s already 2 weeks after I officially became a student in THU.

THU is somewhat a dream place for me, even when I was a child, but for now I think I was just being childish and held a natural obstinacy of the elders’ questions. When I was about 8 years old I went to Beijing with my mother and lived with my mother’s little brother and his wife for about 2 weeks in Peking Unversity. One night we walked alone a small road in PKU and my uncle asked, “which college do you prefer, PKU or THU?” I hadn’t visited THU at that time, nor did I in the following 10 years, but I simply replied, “of course THU!” I just did not know, and I even decided that only when I get an offer from THU will I visit its campus.

Things change. I got a not so good score in National College Entrance Examination (NCEE), so I was not competent to study in THU and finally I went to Tongji University, which is, frankly speaking, also good but not great. After 3 years, in the process of postgraduate recommendation, I finally got the offer from THU. That period of time is really tough, I grow up a lot, not only because the process itself but something else. During my days in Tongji, I ever visited THU twice. The first time is when I applied for a visa to the USA, after completing the visa thing, I decided to go to THU for a while since I thought I may never have a chance to visit it again. The second time is when I attending the postgraduate recommendation interview, where I met my now instructor Jiaguang Sun.

Here am I, sitting on the chair of Dorm 324, 1# of THU campus at night. I feel no longer any nervous or self-abased or revere, in stead, I feel excited, ambitious and cheerful. I met so many great teachers and students here and I believe that I will have a better tomorrow as long as I work hard and do things well.

I became League branch secretary in our class on Aug. 23th, minister of culture in the Graduate Association and administrative of Liaison Department on Aug. 28th. I became busy preparing for the freshmen welcome party and 12•9 chorus contest.

I felt tired now, I’d better go to sleep for a while.
