Today is Good Friday. I probably shouldn't introduce a rude phrase. But, what the hell, learning knows no bounds. By the way, I am not a Christian nor am I a Buddhist; though I do believe in Buddhism.

It's about time for students to choose their elective courses in the upcoming school year. My daughter came to talk to me about her options: (1) continue to take French which qualifies for one credit or (2) take 5 courses with a quarter credit each.

This would be a good opportunity for her to explore more in her last year of middle school. She was thinking of taking wood-working, robotics, creative writing, art and design, drawing and painting. I told her to choose whatever she liked. It would help her to learn what she really likes and what she would like to study in the future.

By the way, I was watching a korean movie: The Con Artist, with English subtitles and came across this idiom “by the skin of one’s teeth”, which means barely, by a narrow margin, just in time, 差一點點就不成 , 險勝

2 1/2 years have passed since my last entry on this blog. I am sorry to keep you waiting. It has been hard without much motivation to write. Anyway, since I like to whine, I will talk about whining.
發牢騷 - Whine
Is it good to whine? Sometimes, it is good to whine to get things off your chest, so you can be done with it and not get bogged down. However, constant whining gets you nowhere and is unconstructive. Instead of fixing issues, you are wasting your time whining.
