After the Chinese New Year vocation, a lot of activities were either suspended or switched to online mode because of covid-19. Yet, life must go on! We need to try to maintain a normal life, for example, I continued to serve as a reviewer of an education journal from Europe; I am so glad that people in Europe are getting better now. Moreover, I also served as a judge of the 53rd Joint School Science Exhibition Proposal Competition; in stead of face-to-face meeting, the competition was conducted on Zoom, which was rather a new experience for me. Provided covid-19 is expected to last for a while, we will have to be prepared to adopt a new life style!
