Weeks after my thyroid operation, I focused on one of my vacation goals: have a standing desk. Why a standing desk? Well, I have read many studies about sitting for too long as unhealthy. Two years ago, I felt numbing pain at my back for sitting too long. I thought that as a runner, I […]
What really, is courage? Is it facing a battle for others to feel safe again? Is it standing up for what is right? Is it facing the music? Is it jumping off a 50-foot cliff, or diving the deep ocean? Or is it reaching the highest peak despite not having enough supplies and tired
Others woke up last December 26 to brace another day at work after Christmas. Me? I did my 30-minute ran, cleaned the house, took a bath, then closed my door’s room. I was so excited for my two-day ME Planning. I waited for this day to happen. This was my second time to do this

I sat down for my first Tuesday work. I opened my ODesk Team application, signed in, and waited for my team to become visible. I wondered why my team was still invisible after a few minutes. The application even said that it might be so because I do not belong to any roster. That’s weird.
