These English essays are arranged in rough categories according to when they first published; in each category, the latest will be at the top.
However, I intend to update all essays as my thoughts evolve over time. That means you may find the most current thoughts even from the essays at the bottom.
Let me know if you see anything that can be improved, something that can help me better serve the readers.
