I dislike Trump greatly.  Bill Prickett took the words right out of my mouth.  I couldn't have said it better myself.  Below were what he said in his article "Do I hate Trump?"

I find his egomaniacal superiority insufferable.
I detest his snide condescension and arrogance toward those who disagree with him.
I’m appalled at the way he demeans others.
I am disgusted by his obvious misogyny and blatant sexism.
I despise his racism and his blasé acceptance of white supremacy.
I loathe the extreme nationalism he promotes.
I am terrified by his petulant, unstable temperament.
I am sickened by his complete ineptitude to hold the office POTUS.
I think he’s uncouth, coarse, bad-mannered and crude.  

That said, I kind of support Trump’s action in his trade war with China, though it might come back to bite me as a consumer for which inflation might be triggered.  However, looking at a bigger picture, to me, national security is more important.  I can’t tolerate big corporations eyeing only for their own selfish short-term profits, giving into Chinese demand, nurturing a snake in our bosom (養虎為患), and letting China get whatever they want, stealing all the intellectual property.

The phrase “rose-colored/rose-tinted glasses/spectacles” is used to describe an optimistic, cheerful way of looking at things. 

When one looks through rose-colored glasses, things may look rosy but far from the truth.  He might be too optimistic, looking only on the bright side.  In reality, things might be worse than one can imagine.

只看到事物好的一面;過於樂觀地看待問題

I have a twitter account but I have only tweeted 4 times since 2009.  I still struggle to find the reason to tweet and the benefit of tweeting.

I was reading something online which happened to talk about first love and why first love was unforgettable.  It brought up a theory in psychology, known as the Zeigarnik effect (蔡氏效應), which states that people remember uncompleted or interrupted tasks better than completed tasks.  Thus, interruption of a task requiring focus could somehow improve one’s ability to remember it afterwards.   Isn’t it interesting?  I don’t know if it is true or not.  Maybe when you have unfinished business, you tend to become more anxious which leads to more constant thought of the incomplete tasks and in turn causes it to retain more in memory.  However, if you are not motivated enough to finish a task, the Zeigarnik Effect might not work as much.  We will see if this makes any difference in my son's study.
