sharing is caring: #52


What a long week it has been! Work has been crazy, as usual, but trying really hard to contain the craziness and give myself time to breathe and process everything that’s happening.

As I get older, the less I feel the need to be the last one at work or prove myself. Is it just me or is this just adulthood?

Interesting reads of the week below!

1. Reminder to not take books at the library for granted. There is an army of librarians and researchers dedicated to ensure that the appropriate books at selected at my local library.

2. With so many corporate positions expiring by the time one hits 40s, I feel the need to re-think the need to race to the top as quickly as I can.

thoughts: feb, 2019


In my mind, rice cooker has one function: makes rice. While reading Amazon reviews, I found out that it can make all sorts of things that are not rice, such as pasta, mac & cheese, porridge, all sorts of chicken dishes, and even carnitas! Mind-blown. Maybe this is what it means when they say a fresh perspective!

Which photos are worth keeping? As I’m deleting photos from the past, I realized that I take too many photos of

  • food (oddly, without people around the table to enjoy them — therefore, as time passes, I have no idea where I ate the food and who I enjoyed it with)
  • books
  • screenshots (of IG posts, articles, and emails)
    • my intention is to use them as examples and/or look them up, but I’m 99% sure that it never happened
  • selfies – my husband and I take one too many selfies — not that we post them anywhere, but that’s how we have fun.
  • skylines – as if I’m a tourist, every time I see the beautiful ny skylines, I tend to snap a photo. These actually have no value — for I can just walk to the waterfronts and/or look outside my window to really appreciate NYC. Note to self, stop taking so many photos of the city that I live in and actually enjoy and experience it to the fullest. Don’t fall trap to the routine and try to make the best out of it.

As I deleted photos of friends that I no longer keep in touch, I wonder how they organize photos of me. Do they also delete it or remember that point in time?
