Catching up is hard, but prolly also what makes life interesting

When We’re 30

I just got to 30 years old last month, I didn’t feel a thing, but many of my friends are having trouble going through the period. Seems to me that the struggle lies in the fact that they feel like they should go after their dreams now, inspired by the latest entrepreneurial trend, seeing all those younger people chasing after dreams and thought of the fact they never had the courage to do it; on the other hand they have the experience of working for almost a decade (or more), and can’t put down the pride to start over and putting them behind those younger people.

I think we should never feel old and never have too much pride, easy to say of course.

Perspective on Recently Developed Chinese Opera

I’m no expert, at all, yet I see two major issues from the show I attended today, it’s called “徽韻” meaning the music of the province of An-Hui. To clarify this is not traditional Chinese opera, these are shows built for the tourists, however these shows are marked as the biggest local show and apparently loads of local people attend them. First is the message, probably due to the competitive environment, country-wide shows want to show the world how good they are, local shows want to get noticed by the central government, they all shout “I’m the best”, when they do this, they put together lots of huge gimmicks to gain attention, like performing right in front of you or pour tons of water on stage, however there’s no message to connect the whole show, they seem to be talking about pieces of why “I’m the best”, the pieces disconnect with each other and because all they care about is getting those huge tricks done, they ignore the details of the show, and lost focus on the perfection of smaller performances during the show, which is a huge pity.

To people who are pursuing dreams and struggling with life #startuplife

What is authenticity? We mimic the behaviors of others, our childhood heroes, our grownup heroes, and hope that would one day become part of us.

Is authenticity simply successful imitations? If so what makes imitations successful? What would have to connect within to truly be authentic?

People read about things for various reasons, but they all include a personal and a social purpose.

This is a old saying in China, that heroes are not self-made, but no more than a product of context.

It’s more about luck and timing than being genius although it requires both to make success a reality. 

It’s said in the article “The Parisian art scene had changed since Van Gogh was alive, in ways that were still unfolding when Picasso began his great experiment. First, there was a new kind of consumer: the industrial revolution had created a class of young, educated, affluent Parisians, who, keen to distinguish themselves from their more conventional elders, prided themselves on daring displays of taste.”

 I’d say Picasso is very lucky, he’s genius, for sure, but he may also have simply met a need that no one knew was there, he wasn’t trying to help these people achieving their goals, but simply to create art that he found valuable.

What a novel idea for engagement! I want to watch Julie and Julia!

"We are attracted to beautiful things because we acknowledge effort."

I resonate this because of cirque du soleil. It may just be me, but every time I watch their show, every single time when the body bending Asian girl come on stage, I cry, I’m not crying because it’s way too freaky, but crying because the life I imagined they lived, they spent all their lives working on one thing and one thing only for the 5 minutes on stage for us, moreover, imagine how many of them do the same thing but never had a chance to get on stage, it’s the beauty of that takes my breath away.
