Motivation Monday – livelong learning

Xuérú nìshuǐxíngzhōu, bù jìn zé tuì
Learning is like rowing a boat against the tide, not advancing will subject one to slide backwards.


Have you experienced Monday blues? I did. Often a toxic co-worker shouts an insult and our head mulls over retorts.

After wasting 8hrs searching out social media, I decided that I shall think about whatever is noble, whatever is good to improve my Mandarin with proverbs on Mondays.

Indeed, even though I have learnt Mandarin in school and worked in Taiwan for 3 years, I have difficulty holding a sentence today.

Surprisingly with language, one loses it when not used. Same goes for my French and Japanese. At least I use some Japanese during my travels to Japan.
