It might remain a mysteries how I met Lojban, but when it happened, I immediately felt in love with this constructed language because it was (and still is) so geeky to talk in Lojban, and there was so rare people could speak this language.
I tried and thought about many things about Lojban, a potential shortcut to an artificial intelligence, a secret journal system, a voice recognition application, and many programming languages.
My journey learning this language still goes on. Lojban will always be the thing I use as a secret code and as an entry to the world.

It was dinner time for a tired day today, and Mahima told us a really fun story about lunar eclipse.
We were really lucky to experience a lunar eclipse on the ship yesterday. Although it was at 4 o’clock in the morning, a lot of people went out to watch it. However, Mahima and her friend were late – when they were heading to the deck, the majority of people were already heading back.
There were a red moon, perfectly round since last night was the Mid-Autumn Festival.
“Look! It’s happening!” One person on the desk shouted. As they all looked at the moon, a shadow appeared, and became bigger.
However, the shadow soon stopped moving and just stayed there. It was wired, since this was not how a lunar eclipse should be happening.
Ten minutes later, they concluded that the shadow was caused by clouds.
