Five Months Into Learning Japanese

Earlier this year, after having gone on a vacation (in February), I found that my habit of listening to podcasts and reading books had been broken. During my commute, I didn’t feel like listening to podcasts or reading books anymore. Most of the time, I spent on just listening to music. However, after a few months, I felt like I could put in something more productive. That’s why on a fine day in April, I decided to learn Japanese.

Setting Up Git SSH Key on Windows

I recently bought a new laptop and went through the hassle of setting up Git SSH key again. There are many guides somewhere on the Internet but it’s all over different places and they tell you to do different things with different outcomes. Also, the guide from GitHub is less than ideal as it requires using “Git Bash” which I do not like. So I’m writing things down for my future reference.

Seasons of Anime

I haven’t written any post for a while now. Well, that’s not entirely true. I’ve been keeping a weekly journal of what I did over the week and this has been ongoing for several years now. In the past few months, outside of work, I’ve been quite occupied with watching anime.

2022 in Review

When 2021 ended, I picked 2022 as year of exploration: to discover new things, hidden or overlooked, places, food, or even knowledge. Looking back, it was really scary to break out from my shell of following routines. However, this year I learned a lot from such experience. This post will delve into three aspects: work, people, and health.

2022 in Books

Initially I planned to include this into the “year in review” post, but this section felt too long, so I separated it into another post.

This year, as tracked by Goodreads, I read 21 books (hmm, apparently they included 2-3 books that I didn’t finish reading). The number is comparable to the previous 1 or 2 years. When I work from home, there isn’t a set time to read book, so usually I don’t read. However, when working in office, I usually use the time for commuting to either listen to podcast or to read. Even so, this year, I felt less motivated to read books, but I discovered and read some great books.
