When I started playing tennis, I was just a neighborhood kid with an after-school hobby, not realizing what magical journey lay ahead of me. If I only knew what a vehicle the sport of tennis, along with my success, would become for my beloved China. While my journey hasn’t been easy, it has been rewarding. I’ve seen change happening in front of my eyes, young girls picking up tennis racquets, setting goals, following their hearts and believing in themselves. I hope that I’ve had the opportunity to inspire young women all over China to believe in themselves, to set their goals high and pursue them with vengeance and self-belief.

Whether you want to be a tennis player, a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher or a business leader, I urge you to believe in yourself and follow your dream. If I could do it, you can too! Be the bird that sticks out. With hard work, your dreams will come true.

Undo the Damage of Sitting

I KNOW THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE SERIOUS BUT I AM FUCKIGN LOSING MY SHIT AT GROK SQUAT

fuck what the chair said

Mm, not bad, but some of these will be too hard for people to start with. Like, instead of doing the knee at an acute angle for the couch stretch, you might want to start with the propped-up leg at a 90-degree angle or so?

You can also do bridging with your legs propped up (unstable surface, like a balance ball, also strengthens the abdominal muscles a bit there, but I think it’s mainly glutes?). But it’s very important to brace before doing it; don’t, and you’re running the risk of straining your back muscles as you over use them.

For reference (I am a flexible person so they’re not too hard for me but I’m always looking for effective stretches I can do while typing on an iPad XD).

Shoulder rolls and lunge/squat variations (I’m partial to the cursty lunge) also feel great. Standing heel lifts/hip extensions when typing or just standing around.

And that one hip stretch (seated pigeon?) where you sit straight on a chair, place your right ankle on your left knee, and slowly push your torso forward. Hold for ~20 secs then do the other side.

Have you ever wondered where books come from?

Well then, let me show you, because that’s what I do for a living.

Right now, it’s this time of the year, and the little ones have just freshly hatched:

You’ll notice they’re still blind and naked when they hatch. So I make them little coats to keep them warm during their first winter:

See how they happily line up to put them on:

See? Better. Now they’re ready to go and explore the world.

And if they make it through the winter and we take good care of them, they will grow up to be strong and wise like their older fellows:

So, in case you were ever wondering, now you know.
