Osservazioni da Italia (capitolo 1)
Gelato generally costs €2 or €2.50. Anything more than that better be really good. Most gelato matches some market-achieved standard of taste and price, which means you can get tasty gelato anywhere. Most will also do more than one flavor even in a smallest size (piccoli). Italy, like many Old World cities/countries, requires vicious instinct, killer luck, and hard-headed perseverance to find...
The (Only) Ten Basic News Stories →
azspot: 1. Shock and Horror. As they say in the news biz, “If it bleeds, it leads.” Murders, especially multiples, acts of unusual violence, brutality, or sadism, shark attacks, and the carnage left by explosions are sure fire grabbers for the attention of a nation of gawkers. 2. Tragedy. Preferably enhanced by the horror factor, as in a suicide bombing, the Tragedy category includes natural...

princesshyejin: this is exactly what i needed to hear for this week. too much going on. time to get going. timtimedin: (via lpster) I’m using the free internet in the Logan airport terminal waiting for our flight to NYC. Saw this on my dashboard. Thanks Hyej & Tim, this article is mad good. I’ve always suspected this is largely true — for instance, I can’t take...
Una vacanze in Italia
I am going to Italy for 2 weeks for vacation. Milan, Florence, Siena, Trento, Bolzano, Venice, Padua & other north country cities. Hurray! I am very excited to go to Florence and Siena. Ever since “Quantum of Solace” showed that crazy scene with the horse racing around the public square and other pictures of Florence and such Renaissance cities, I’ve wanted to go. And since...

breathofmusic608: TPao: (looking up at the lights as we walk through FFSC) Hey, those lights actually look kinda cool. Me: … is it bad that i just thought of hybrid orbitals when i saw them?

Nothing new and probably nothing good
I wish I were completely at peace. But I’m not. It wasn’t long, but I spent 20 minutes at the piano today playing sad/break-up songs because that was just how I felt. It was a sudden and overtaking bout of heartache and missing. *sigh* I am so close to being well. I am not going to write anymore than this because it will be nothing new and probably nothing good. I’ll leave it at...
articulate mr. hsu. you could persuade me to buy air– Beka Ouyang, in response to my Facebook status: “Greg Hsu is very thankful that the presentation went so well.”
Love is a Battlefield
Why does sin have power over us? Because we love it. If we didn’t love sin, temptation wouldn’t faze us at all. Sin is not a behavior issue, it’s a heart issue, a love issue. How do we overcome sin? By having a deeper love for something else, for Jesus. It is clearer than ever that I am messed up. God has been extremely generous in His provision to me by providing me with so many good and...

First thoughts from home (about... lots of things)
I’m sitting in the Framingham Public Library while my mom teaches an English class to some of the elderly people in our church. My flight left RDU @ 7:00am so props to PNak for driving me so early. GRADUATING/LEAVING DUKE: Leaving/graduating/moving on has been pretty hard. I think I’ve had an easier time than most because (1) I didn’t leave right after graduation but stayed...

White Noise Generator = productivity →
Much as I hate to say it, listening to music doesn’t help me study, it may block out other noises or keep from being bored, but it takes up brain space. White noise generator does not. It’s actually really good. This white noise generator even has three “shades” of noise (different frequencies) to satisfy all of us. My favorite is “Brown” noise at 44%, unless...
