โŒ›๏ธ About Pseudoyu

Pseudoyu is my first website. I mainly write about my daily life, study and thoughts here. This blog was initially created on my personal web server using WordPress, and I moved to WeChat Official Account (the same name). Due to the consideration of stability and customization need, I decided to build a new site on GitHub Page with the domain name pseudoyu.com and use a static site generator (Hugo) to generate the content.

I named Pseudoyu as my blog name quite by chance. I’m stuck for the choice of my HKU uid because my name is really common(but I still want a special one for my further use). Accidently, I found a prefix pseudo, the word pseudonym means a name that is not real, the item pseudocode means a notation resembling a simplified programming language in Computer Science world. And one of my favorite cartoons Nisemonogatari also focuses on the concept of pseudo and real. So, why there can’t be a pseudo - yu (me)?

I always fall into self-doubt. Whenever I’m talking with my best friend, if the topics are about initials or meanings, I’ll choose to escape. It’s difficult for me to feel the simple joy or satisfaction emotions even if I made some achievements and praised by others. I used to regard everything in my life is meaningless. As time goes by, I begin to understand more about it. I wrote a paragh in my another article Dear Yu, Are you ready for 23?, “Perhaps, thinking about meaning itself is also a process of constructing meanings. I decide to give up the previous illusion of an ‘Aha moment’ and just continue moving forward to experience my own life."

The name Pseudoyu also tells myself that I should never constantly struggle with what meaning is anymore. Instead, I will continue to learn, experience and challenge new things. And I can finally accept other’s judgement or complain about me like “You changed” with pressure.

I hope I can acquire more inputs like new knowledge and ideas, and write more short articles as outputs.
