我们的样子

我挺久不发博客。因为我用笔在写日记,收集我的记忆。但是想来我的很多记忆也并非属于我自己。所以有空还是写写。 今天刷 Instagram 偶然看到 Alex 的一张全家福照片,他说现在终于成为新西兰公民了。看到他们开心但也随着岁月成熟的样子我真的非常高兴。我非常非常的敬佩 Alex,我曾经觉得他就是那个高不可攀的终极偶像。我们共事只有短短两月,而后就只有很少的交集,他后来也伤感的登上小船漂到了世界一端的那个岛上。 曾经,我辞掉了我幸运得到的第一份工作参加了 Sam Newman 先生的一个创业项目。可是那时的我太不成熟,被项目中的无良人坑了,几个月就丢了饭碗被踢出来了。新婚还不懂事的我觉得这是天大的麻烦,所以发推求工作。Alex 当天就约我出来喝咖啡,也许那是个周日的晚上。我借口不会喝咖啡,他就说可以吃芝士蛋糕——柠檬味的非常好吃——我就更慌忙的推脱完全不懂他说的那个东西是什么。但是我们约了第二天在金湖茶餐厅见面。 和 Alex 相见的那天他在星巴克点了伯爵红茶。对于那时的我来说花掉二十块钱买一包袋茶冲一下热水很是不能理解,但是不明觉厉。对于 Alex 当时用的 Django 我完全不懂,python 也是从来没写过。但是和 Alex 聊天缺让我热血沸腾,不知道为什么,他鼓励我去接受这些看似挑战的新技术,他相信我一定可以马上搞定。而后我就幸运的加入了他的团队,队友还有蚂蚁和二傻。 我记和 Alex 一起工作的那段日子超级有趣,醒着就在看文档实验代码片段和各种配置。因为什么都不懂就写 wiki 给自己备忘。除了和老婆在一起聊天、给她做饭就剩下睡觉和研究技术了。后来我做的事情就是采购服务器,把【好看簿】从一台服务器升级到三台的服务器组。工作很顺利,这是我第一次在家办公,而且让我对在家办公很上瘾。我现在还记得每次和 Alex 见面他都拿着一本皮质的记事本,所有的事情都用笔记录下来,手帐写的非常整齐。他随时都有有趣的点子,听到别人有趣的点子也都记录在本子上。他非常忙,有接不完的电话,是个非常有趣的老板。他说之前在美国做过一个创业项目卖掉了,而后做了几年企业项目,后来就做了这个新的创业项目。他身上那种对工作和生活的激情是我羡慕的,我很想成为他那样的人。他给我看好看簿上他的结婚照,我得知嫂子在微软工作。他们两口子都是信息技术从业者。 后来,另外的挚友给我推荐了 ThoughtWorks 的机会。那次运气很好,通过了面试。所以幸运的得到的和 Alex、蚂蚁、二傻工作的机会就提前要结束了。现在看离开的选择还是对的,加入 TW 是我更大的一个转折点。Alex、蚂蚁、二傻这样好的同事和导师到现在也是难忘的。 看到 Alex 的全家开心加入新西兰的照片我非常开心。看起来真是一家人,每个人颧骨上的强健的肌肉都在描述他们努力生活后开心微笑锻炼出来的清晰轮廓。我们的样子都写下了岁月,我们也都有我们自己亲爱的女儿——美丽的家。这就是我们的样子。

Summer road trip 2017 day 5

Today is the last day of this very trip. We get up at 8AM. It’s because I didn’t figure out how to shut the sun blocking curtain, so the bright sunshine comes to hour hotel room early. Monkeys are energetic like never been on a road trip in previous couple of days. We give them […]

Summer road trip 2017 day 4

Get up from Grants Pass’s Riverside inn early, say 7AM. And I start to think about the trip. It’s about sharing our joy of being closer to nature. And I feel satisfied. A post shared by Tian Yue (@diamondtin) on Jul 5, 2017 at 9:08am PDT Hannah shared a bed with me last night, and […]

Summer road trip 2017 day 3

Got up around 8AM, went out from hotel at 9AM. First stop is Northtown Coffee in Arcata. Arcata is a quiet town near Eureka. It’s not fancy, looks old and forgotten. The coffee is good thought 🙂 Monkeys had some donuts from grocery store too. Morning A post shared by Tian Yue (@diamondtin) on Jul […]

Summer road trip 2017 day 2

Yesterday is a great start. And today I feel the emptiness after the great start. I feel a bit tired when I finally opened my eyes for today. Kids and wife get up at 8AM, and finish their cereal breakfast at 8:30AM. We took everything to the car and take a short walk to the […]

Summer road trip 2017 day 1

My driver license is about to expire. So we want to utilize the borrowed time well, explore US west coast counties at summer time. We have 5 days to spend, including July 4th which is a national holiday. We don’t expect to plan any specific wonder land for children, but focus on celebrating free time […]

Hands on the iPad Pro 10.5

Drive to Apple Store to test the iPad Pro 10.5 today. I was planned to buy a Magic Touchpad 2 from Apple store, but it’s out of stock 🙂 I just got my new iMac middle 2017, so I don’t need to test that out in Apple Store. The iPad pro 10.5 brings my attention […]

“I’m always busy” is priority-management bankruptcy

“I’m always busy” is priority-management bankruptcy I’m pretty “busy”, most of time. And I know that’s my bankruptcy on priority-management. I didn’t use term “time-management” but “priority-management” because I know “it’s complicated”. Common excuses are funny 🙂 “it’s complicated” means you can’t explain it briefly. Which is a problem on understanding the essential of a […]

Frustration bomb!

A post shared by Tian Yue (@diamondtin) on Apr 19, 2017 at 6:50pm PDT I frequently having problems having conversation with some individuals. Because someone prefer frequent none-value-driven argument, someone prefer complains all the time, someone are neglect diversity of opinions. It’s a frustration! And the expression I put here is negative, which is affect […]

Cancel my Spotify Premium again

Spotify is my first music streaming service, and I love it’s social feature back to 5 years ago. I was in China back then, and I need to use VPN to access Spotify. I remember it had no free-tier at that time, but paying $4.99 is already affordable. At 2014, I start using Rdio. And […]
