A note: The characters 周井寒 which appear in this essay are a person’s name. The person is referred to twice, first by their given name, 井寒, then by their full name, 周井寒. The person’s relationship to the author isn’t really specified. This clearly isn’t the name of the child’s mother, as 周井寒 is referred to as a “he”.
The Chinese title of this essay is 快乐的我.
