The Zen of Python, by Tim Peters
Beautiful is better than ugly.
Explicit is better than implicit.
Simple is better than complex.
Complex is better than complicated.
Flat is better than nested.
Sparse is better than dense.
Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.
Although practicality beats purity.
Errors should never pass silently.
Unless explicitly silenced.
In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.
Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.
Now is better than never.
Although never is often better than *right* now.
If the implementation is hard to explain, it's a bad idea.
If the implementation is easy to explain, it may be a good idea.
Namespaces are one honking great idea -- let's do more of those!

I am happy that I braved the drizzle this morning and attended the Personality Type workshop. I really love the tutor's smile.
As getting older, I have a preference to learn something about psychology as a human being. I've been introduced the Enneagram of Personality a few years ago, but for the MBTI I probably know little. There are four dimensions: Extraversion & Introversion, Sensing & Intuition, Thinking & Feeling, Judging & Perceiving. After the self-assessment, my type is INTP, 85% I think. Also, I might be more effective to communicate with individuals with different personality types.
Another thing I am quite proud of myself is that I made a comprehensive Mind map about Writing PMAs. During the past two weeks, I've attended nearly 10 workshops on Academic Writing, Critical Thinking, etc. So I spent the whole afternoon synthesizing and evaluating the information from our tutors, ReMe team, Warwick study skills team to pull my thoughts together. What's more, I find out that leaving my phone at room is the best way to immerse myself into studying or working.
