2016 resolution

1) No work on the bed

Won’t bring my laptop to the bed.

2) Sleep in the dark


It’s about another bad habit I had. Doesn’t feel good when I sleep with the light on.

3) Five manuscripts publishable


Want to spend this year with lots of presentations/networking/publication…

4) care of body


Won’t forget I have both soul and body. As much as I care of my soul and career, I will cherish my body in many ways—work outs, taking supplements, dolling ups(?!)

5) Read books

Thanksgiving 2015


Nothing much to do for an international student. It’s just been a blessing to be able to have a few days off. I celebrate Friendsgiving, hence the days before and after are busier than Thanksgiving day.

Today I was staying at home, mostly alone, speaking only with my bf through Skype, chatting only with texts. Never spoke something like “I’m thankful…” aloud. I guess this is a good place to do it.
I’m thankful for 

Having a wonderful family although they are thousands miles away,

Having a loving, caring partner,

Doing what I have passion for,

Finally getting the hang of what to do and how to do in this field.

And also thankful that I got two fantastic paintings this year:



These are from my favorite animated films of all time, the Little Mermaid and Frozen. I feel warmth and courage emanated from these paintings. Totally in love with them.

After being grateful to what 2015 brought to be, I became more hopeful for the next year! Come, come, holidays and the New Year! I’m ready to listen to carols for the next 30 days!
