2016.12. Wake me up in San Francisco, let's go cross the golden gate and party at the Frisco bay :D

I visited back Cal! Did LBL brownbag talk, Berkeley EPS graduate student brownbag talk, practice talk at group meeting, and the AGU talk. Jakes (my group mates) stayed (bore) with me for 4 talks in 4 different version😂 What good friends! 😁

Science :D

And so happy to meet up with so many friends (at Cal and AGU)!

Egyptian sculptures, magnificent; Greek and Roman statues, mesmerizing; Egyptian mummies, thrilling...and I especially want to say, Chinese art, breath-taking!!
Part of the Asian exhibition is not open, and I only visited the ceramics. During these days of visiting to museums and palaces, I find interesting similarity among the royal life--full of exquisite objects that take precious material, talented and heart-devoted skills of numerous people to manifest the royal highness and royal power. There are plentiful fascinating things, but for the handicraft works, I can't speak too highly of Chinese ones. Royal ceramics on display in Winsor Castle look better after 19th century, but the modern industrial trace makes them feel thin (I don't mean the physical thickness, but in the cultural sense, not having as high cultural extension.) While the Chinese ceramics on display (mostly from Ming and Qing Dynasty, after 1300s) really make people smite the table and applaud. These are only a very small part. I still remember the collections on display in Shanghai Museum and those in east China gardens. I was really impressed. Bronze, ceramics, jade, seals, paintings, calligraphies etc. Even on a very small but amazingly-carved seal, there could be poems. I don't know why, my trip in UK this time makes me feel that Chinese no matter people or art, are a bit short of "presence". This short of "presence" (something that is very important in modern and western narratives) makes Chinese people and culture sometimes misunderstood, or disunderstood. Part of this is due to language barrier, another might be the intrinsic cultural disposition. I feel proud of Chinese civilization and art. I don't deem it a nationalistic pride, but the kind of human achievement that we all could celebrate. The same to different amazing civilizations! Thus I encourage an open attitude (an interest to learn about, instead of feeling irrelevant); and I also encourage more presence of Chinese people and culture (not just a simple China town...). This means I encourage Chinese fellows to express more, and non-Chinese fellows to listen more.

Prison and Royal Power are in one. --Tower of London.

I personally like this spot very much. It arouses layers and layers sense of history. Besides, the collection of Crown Jewels at the Jewel house is stunning, especially in glass cases with back velvet as background, and with the typically museum injection lighting on them. I especially like a sword collected there.

'Gentle visitor pause awhile, where you stand death cut away the light of many days. Here jewelled names were broken from the vivid thread of life, may they rest in peace while we walk the generations around their strife and courage under these restless skies.'

Performance at Art China Youth Art Competition. 2016.8.
My new water sleeve dance piece: 水 (water flow) 墨 (ink) 烟 (smoke) 云 (clouds)   (For English name, maybe I can call it Ink Clouds)

In Chinese, we put four things together (水+墨+烟+云)and we can create a picture(水墨烟云)that really make sense, but in English, we'll have to establish the logical relationship to make the phase make sense...

Performance at Art China Youth Art Competition. 2016.8. 水墨烟云

Not easy dance training :D Usually I become nervous the night before the class. Sometimes I even cry out loud in class. 😂 But anyway, progress is proportional to effort, and it feels so good when you become able to do things that you really want to do but wasn't able to. 

 

I kicked >12000 kicks, back bent >1200 times to make some techniques in my dance piece. 

Really hope that I had started early and persisted practicing ballet or Chinese Classic Dance. If that is the case, I must have super cool Kungfu now. So, if you have a kid, especially a daughter, expose him/her early to ballet training (or Chinese classic dance if interested) :D

Attended a isotope workshop hosted at Tsinghua 2016.8.

Passed my qualification exam. I became a formal PhD candidate! :D​    2016.8

Attended and gave a talk on the isotope-convection study at AOGS 13th annual meeting in Beijing.

See how time flies. Two years ago, I went to AOGS 2014 in Sapporo, and had a poster on a tropical cyclone study. Had some injury on my leg back then, but it is recovered now. My advisor at Berkeley also visited Beijing in the same summer (the first time I met him), and my advisor at Tsinghua visited Berkeley in the summer of 2015 :D #LifeAsAGraduateStudent

As a PhD student at Tsinghua, we are required to attend a 'social practice' internship project at another place away from Beijing, to get to know more of the society. I was among the team going Fuzhou, a city in southeast part of China. I worked at a environmental monitoring station. On weekends, students make groups to take a trip around. Here are photos of us going to Wuyi Mountain National Park. 2016.7.

Hilarious and relaxing on Cal Day and in Art & Science Show.

Mood noted down: Not as relaxing as Cal Day. Nervous at the beginning and I tried to adjust my mentality to calm myself down: stage, spotlight, and me. When the spotlight shed upon me, it was so intense that I suddenly felt I can’t see. I can’t see the audience, I don’t know how well I play, I don’t know how they feel. I was a bit lost. This is somewhat like how the life is. Many times you don’t know how well your performance is; or how people think of you...But you got to play anyway, to the very best that you can. Because you choose to be a performer, you are recounting your narrative. Just perform, and don’t worry about how people will judge you. Friends who love you will cheer for you. And if you play really well, the world applauses for you. Otherwise they would probably just laugh and forget--it does not matter. Just perform, and leave less regret.
