I told my local Toastmasters club the story of changing my path from studying computer science to design.
So far, I’ve experienced the following airline traveling within the United States: Delta, United Airlines, Island Air (commuter flight in Hawaii) and today Virgin America. It’s hard to say which one I prefer the most.
We had a fun combination of Chinese style pre-wedding events and western style wedding at the chapel.
In China’s time, people are stepping into the first day in the New Year of Rooster. This is a time that everyone sends wishes to others.
Chinese New ear of Rooster is around the corner. Here are some samples I put together. I’ll also teach you how to cut the 囍 character.
I enjoyed a great workshop with my coworkers on at work, how to be candid & helpful when give feedback, and how to better receive feedback. I really love the quote Russ ended the workshop with: “Feedback is not measured by your mouth; it is measured by the listener’s ear.”
I’m glad that my fattest folder had a big weight loss session today.
We had a fun time at the Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment in Oakland, CA, aka the Video Game Museum. It made me think of my childhood, and the reason why I wanted to study computer science — making games.
My favorite quote of the day: perfection is a goal, not a destination, by my coworker Mark Gilbert.
Explanation: perfection is something that we should strive for everything every day, that’s how we get things done well. However, it’s impossible to be perfect at all times. Sometimes we reach 80%, sometimes 50%, sometimes 30%. Striving for perfection doesn’t mean we can’t make mistakes. We should not be too upset to move forward because of not achieving it, either. We should do our best to maintain a high quality consistently.
As a user experience designer, aside from being a advocate for user needs and business objectives, should be a good communicator among different teams, especially if you want team onboard with your design decisions.
