Happy New Year!

I am getting lazy with this blog thing. It's hard to keep it up especially when I am busy with my experiments. All attention should be focused on one thing --- how to get good data.

Many things happened in the past year, some bad, some good. As said in the song, "troubles they come and go, the good times are the gold". I believe so-called "selective memory-loss" can benefit my health, both mentally and physically. And I choose to forget my age as well.

I usually listen to FM39.9. When I was driving in another city, I always tried to find a station with similar songs, because after these years, they are like some old friends to me.
Sometimes DJ introduces some new songs. Just like meeting strangers, I don't know whether or not they can become my friends. There are songs I loved from the beginning, and the ones I never liked. But there are also other kinds of songs: one that I didn't pay attention first, then gradually like them more and more, and the other that I fell in love at first sight but lost interest after I really got to know the lyrics and the singers.

the Golden Globe

"Brokeback mountain" and "Walk the line" seem to be big winners. I was surprised to Ang Lee's head was shaking during his speech. Hopefully he was just being nervous instead being sick. Anyway, I am very proud of him no matter which part he was from.
On my to-be-seen list, there are "match point", "walk the line" and "the whale & the squid". Like Ang Lee said, this year the audience have been lucky because there are so many good movies out there.
I better watch out for my wallet.

glory road

Jia and I watched "glory road" this afternoon. Actually she wanted to see a horror movie, while I was kind of interested in a comedy movie, then we compromised on this one.
There is nothing fancy about the movie. It's simply exciting and inspiring. I would say the script itself is not strong enough, but it has the advantage --- based on a true story. BTW, the actor playing the coach is just so so so cute!

cloudy days

Today is that kind of day that I'd like to stay at home (well, which day is not?).
It seems ready to rain in any minute, which makes me feel very unsecure, unless I am under some shelter.
There are a lot of similar days in my memory about my college life, gray and humid.

a little bit freedom

Driving to school is not really an economcal thing for me. I need to pay for the parking permit and gas, and walk longer, and clean the snow if there is any.
But I am happy to exchange this amount of money and efforts for just a little bit freedom.

blah blah blah

It's time to write down something, before I forget.
Maybe someday I won't even remember that I have a blog.

New Year Resolution--- know better what I can do and do my best

"I wish I knew how to quit you"
---Brokeback Mountain

I guess I am becoming old. Words like this can not touch me anymore.
