Norse Prayer To The Fallen

MAY THE VALKYRIES WELCOME YOU AND LEAD YOU THROUGH ODIN’S GREAT BATTLE FIELD. MAY THEY SING YOUR NAME WITH LOVE AND FURY SO THAT WE MAY HEAR IT RISE FROM THE DEPTHS OF VALHALLA AND KNOW THAT YOU HAVE TAKEN YOUR RIGHTFUL PLACE AT THE TABLE OF KINGS. FOR GREAT MEN HAVE FALLEN, WARRIORS, CHIEFTAINS, FATHERS, SONS, FRIENDS.

A great song

I met this song recently when watching Rocket’s game. It is played on their home court. With the special effects of the players, this song sounded really amazing. Later I learnt that it’s also “Iron Man 3: Heroes Fall” soundtrack. Really sounds cool even after hearing several times. Last time the one gave me this kind of feeling maybe is ” Legends Never Die” which I listened 3 years ago.

Here’s the lyrics~

 

Ready Aim Fire

by Imagine Dragons

With our backs to the wall, the darkness will fall
We never quite thought we could lose it all
Ready, aim, fire, ready, aim, fire
An empire’s fall in just one day
You close your eyes and the glory fades
Ready, aim, fire, ready, aim, fire away (fire!)
Ready, aim, fire, ready, aim, fire away

Off in the distance, there is resistance
Bubbling up and festering
Hey Mr Motion, make me a potion
Shake it all up with your mystery

How come I’ve never seen your face ’round here?
I know every single face ’round here
A man on a mission, changing the vision
I was never welcome here

We don’t have a choice to stay
We’d rather die than do it your way

With our backs to the wall, the darkness will fall
We never quite thought we could lose it all
Ready, aim, fire, ready, aim, fire
An empire’s fall in just one day
You close your eyes and the glory fades
Ready, aim, fire, ready, aim, fire away (fire!)
Ready, aim, fire, ready, aim, fire away

Back in the casing, shaking and pacing
This is the tunnel’s light
Blood in the writing, stuck in the fighting
Look through the rifle’s sight
How come I’ve never seen your face ’round here?
I know every single face ’round here
Here in the heckle, holding the shackle
I was never welcome here

We don’t have a choice to stay
We’d rather die than do it your way

With our backs to the wall, the darkness will fall
We never quite thought we could lose it all
Ready, aim, fire, ready, aim, fire
An empire’s fall in just one day
You close your eyes and the glory fades
Ready, aim, fire, ready, aim, fire away (fire!)
Ready, aim, fire, ready, aim, fire away

Whoa

With our backs to the wall, the darkness will fall
We never quite thought we could lose it all
Ready, aim, fire, ready, aim, fire
An empire’s fall in just one day
You close your eyes and the glory fades
Ready, aim, fire, ready, aim, fire away (fire!)
Ready, aim, fire, ready, aim, fire away

One is a troop

“If we are the teammates, I can offer you projects of last year’s version. It will sure make a lot easier for you.”

“I don’t need it. If you know more about me, you won’t say that kinda thing.”

Not seeing for years, so many people forget, even including me, what’s the power beneath emperor.

When I get up from throne, take off the crown, take on the tabard and step out of the palace, I am a troop myself, a troop of one man.

Read book daily as a habit

It was all originated from a talk. The talk was about the talker’s experience about starting a business. The most impressive part for me is that the speaker shared with us that he had developed a reading habit from primary school and during the later 30 years it didn’t terminate no matter how busy is. What a magnificent feat, unparalleled.

Now I want to follow his footsteps, too. I’ll try my best to read a little every day, even a page a day. I want to develop such a wonderful habit. The book itself is called The power of habit.

I don’t know how long will I persist but I hope keep it longer.

Dinner Talk

“I had a talk with you on the school open day. Do you remember?”

“Emmm… I didn’t remember clearly, since almost two years past.” I replied.

I forgot? How could this be. I boasted that the only problem of Zhejiang University is its score line is too low and I can get so many schools’ offer while it’s hard to choose. I remembered clearly you told me DON’T come to ShanghaiTech as it didn’t fit me well. How could I forget it?

Going over the bridge together, right before the separation, you added, “it seems you can’t get your mind down to something that time. And it seems it changed little within these two years.” You waved your hand to say goodbye, smiled.

On the path to library, I said to myself, “from which aspect did she draw her conclusion?” After entering college, fewer and fewer people would told me about my drawbacks and problems. Last time it was my physics teacher told me in the convenience store that he thought I was too anxious to achieve quick success and get instant benefits.

I went back and sought for her in canteen, seeking for the reason and also seeking for advise since she thought we were similar in many ways.

I finally found her and then had a long talk…

Serendipity and coincidence are like some kind of supernatural preordination. We’ll surely meet again.

After phone interview

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me that day — and not only to me, but also to who have longed for his appearing.
