這幾天搬家辛苦,外面世界風暴不斷,心裏也不好受。

舊的傢俱,從儲藏室搬到新屋裏。費心費力安頓下來,卻要面對物是人非的窘境。打發寂寞重看甄嬛傳,天子不會有錯,妃子委屈只能忍著。皇上的母親是太后要盡心侍奉,妃子的母 …

Ever since the first Fredrik Backman book, he became one of my all time favorite authors. I love his dark humor, his very empathetic character building and how observant he is of little things in life.

This is a short review of the 5 Backmans I’ve read so far. enjoy!

Anxious People

Anxious People was my 2020 best fiction choice. The story unfolds like an onion, with each layer offering more back story and makes you question how different people really are from each other.

I was extremely impressed with how Backman was able to create so many characters and give them…


心理师问我,什么是爱情,我张口结舌,自尊心受挫,情急反问道,你说什么是爱情。「没有标准答案,每个人的理解都不同的」。

真是狡猾。

我又要努力回答,又要答的与众不同。

二十六岁的我被问爱情是什么,我好像还没有答案。不 …

“It’s strange how you give people you love so much power over you.”

I wonder when do people realize that their family is weird. For me, it’s 2020 (2020 is weird too), when I am 25 years old.

Childhood is like a long hypnosis period when you take in everything as normal and never question them. I never asked why we don’t go out and eat at restaurants. I never asked why my uncle comes to our house but we never go visit his place. I never asked why I had to learn manipulative strategies to negotiate with my dad…


蒲公英的种子快活的随风飞舞

偌大的世界充满了无限可能

甜的雨 暖的阳光

吞下一口自由

她亲吻天空

跨越彩虹

蒲公英的种子自己生长

她知道自己的年轻不知道自己的美丽

她的花渴望欣赏但拒绝碰触

她还没有足够的能量一颗一颗拔掉她全部的刺阿

又还要时间一遍一遍的练习 练习哭 …


我一直自以为是很乐观积极的人,很少有烦心事,也很少思考困难的问题。每天最开心的就是完成作业,划掉记事本里所有的项目,安心的睡觉。

我的心理谘商师经常问我你现在的感受是什么,我通常只有感觉想哭和没感觉两种答案。后来她又开始问我那你现在身体有什么感受,我的回答就只剩没感觉了。

用脑子推理出的感觉不是感觉吧。每次被问这题的时候我都会僵住,想象太极大师运气,武林大侠调动内力,漩涡鸣人汇集查克拉,我的感觉你到底在哪里啊。

我很想证明自己是幸福知足,不是悲喜傻傻分不清楚。但如何分辨快乐是真的,还是设置了快乐的默认值,没有留出感受其他情绪的时间呢。

多年前晚上在北京的一个商圈,步行街上有个穹顶,上面有一个很大的滚动屏幕,我发了一封表白的短信,仰着头睁大了眼睛看着一条条信息出现又消失,期待着下一行是我的那条。等了好久好久,快要放弃回家的时候,突然看到我的信息出现在屏幕上,很大很大的字在蓝色的背景上投影给这整条街上所有的人看。我好开心好开心,冲着朋友激动的大叫。看着抓拍的荧幕的照片,觉得自己就是连续剧里最浪漫的女主角。

所有是不是曾经也会感受也有表达,只是没有一块有观众的荧幕。

In this post, I will walk you through the preparation steps that enable you to schedule a containerized machine learning model as a batch job on AWS. It is the second part of this post series, which assumes you have finished the first 2 steps in Part 1 to create a Dockerfile and build a container image.

To understand what are you preparing for, eventually, we will be using AWS Batch to schedule the ML job.

AWS Batch executes jobs as Docker containers using Elastic Container Service (ECS). It dynamically provisions the optimal quantity and type of compute resources (e.g…


Readability Counts by Trey Hunner at PyCon 2017

This is my notes for Trey Hunner’s talk on Python readability from PyCon 2017. The slides are available here but I think the content will be easier to consume because there are many before-and-after comparison examples. All credit goes to @treyhunner and a big shoutout to his Python Morsels training.

In this 30 min talk, Trey talked about how to make your code easier to read, including better use whitespaces, line breaks, code structure, naming concepts, choosing the right construct and many more.

First, why readability important?

  • code is more often read than written
  • easier to change or maintain your code
  • easier on-boarding
  • PEP…
