My 2017 Year in Review
Before the winter holiday, I was tidying up things and preparing for leaving Wuxi. At that time, I attend to the annual meeting of the company and say goodbye to my friends in Wuxi.
At the end of January, I was in my hometown Changshu. I have a lot of fun with my old friends. Most of the time, we play cards.
During February and March, I stayed USTC (University of Science and Technology of China) in Hefei on some research work with Prof. Zhang.
At the end of March, I went to Tsinghua University and stayed in Beijing for the rest of the time. I met my best friend in Beijing. He was planning to leave Beijing for Shanghai then.
At the beginning of May, I went to Xi’an for my PhD opening report so I finally met my college friends in school. Right after the day I arrived in Xi’an, I flied to Shanghai for TURC 2017 conference with my college friends.
In August, I went Changshu for attending the wedding of my another best friend. I met some of my high school classmates there and we had not met for a very long time since we graduated from high school.
In November, I went Changshu for attending the wedding of my brother. The wedding follows the traditional customs of Changshu so it is very impressive.
Last thing I want to mentioned is that my paper was accepted by INFOCOM 2018 this year. I was very excited when I received the notification on the early morning of November 27th.
Finally, here is my 2017 life video:
My life of game is quite different than usual in this year. I played Dota 2 only few times in the very begging of this year and after that I almost neither played the game myself nor watched any Dota related (live) videos. Instead, I played games on Nintendo Switch most of the time. Surely, I am always a retro game enthusiast. I spent some time on old game consoles or game emulators. The games I played this year are as follows.
