Coconut Report 20

Utah, US This week, I wrote code and practiced on Leetcode. But I haven’t delivered the bot I want to build yet. My feeling for Rust so far is, Rust gives you freedom as long as you behave well, which means you have to understand what you are doing while writing code line by line.

Utah, US The Economist this week has excellent writings. The two articles about Amazon gave critical and reasonable opinions, sharp as usual. Highly recommend.

Utah, US A “black lives matter” protest happened in Provo this Saturday.

Utah, US This week, I exercised more outdoors. We discovered a beautiful campus nearby, and we enjoyed an hour of walking per day there. Check my Instagram for photos and videos.

It rained this weekend, and we walked out in the rain, enjoying the pleasant smell of earth and plants.

Utah, US This week I wrote more. It might be the first time I showed my emotions in a blog post – a blog post in Chinese about my situation recently. I felt strange about it. It was also interesting to see people’s reactions. It seems to me that people read the part they can understand, or in other words, people see things they want to see. So do I, I guess.

Utah, US This is a week of focusing – less news, less messages, more classic books and articles. I took useful notes, including thoughts about product building, and RiB community roadmap. Staying at Utah is comfortable. I especially like the neighborhoods very well. From walking across those beautiful houses, seeing people who exercise in front of their apartments, I am comforted by this offline real life.
