I participated in a workshop about working hilidays in the UK with my dearest French girls-Aii yeasterday. There was a section called Q&A after the workshop and one of the audience asked a question, "Can you list some culture shocks between Taiwan and the UK?" the woman whom had studied in the UK for two years replied, "Sure, when a guy asked you out or wanna hang out with you, don't think too much. he's just wanna be friend with you and just friends." It dawned upon me that we are just friend and never think too much. haha

   Are there some culture shocks between us? Yes, really are. Somehow i am thinking that knowing you is a lucky thing, for i would practice my English oral and speaking ability, got someone to share my feelings, even got a new one to hang out with. Pretty good, isn't it? :)

    French girls have international views toward everything in lives, and we know that we must step out to experience the world. Therefore, i knew that there do exist different ways toward different people all over the world. As for me, dealing with American, never take their words so seriously. "Wanna have a movie next time? I'll call you back. I got to buy you a drink something!" Just listen and never look forward for it or you would be pretty disappointed. In my point of view, American to whom they are not familiar with will try their best to show their friendlyness and kindness. However, once you wanna move forwad to have a closer relationship, you will know that they are just trying to be polite something. It's hard to get into an American group something in the beginning. In contrast, dealing with Eupean, it would be pretty hard in the beginning. Once they open their mind to accept you, you would experience their kindness and how friendly they were. To say it honestly, i have never been to the USA but i had ever been to Europe for two times. I have to confess that European were really nice to foreigner, espeicially girls.   

    For us, you are kind of dangerous to me, for you have Asian outlook with foreign soul indeed. Somehow Iwill ease my mind and to think in the wrong way. haha, thanks you to my experience and age, i always pull it back on time. thank you for teaching my a new lesson of culture differences. :)

    (歌詞)
    別抱有太多幻想 別抱有太多欲望
    讓自己心情少了一些空歡笑
    如果是真愛 更是值得商確 那一定很理想
    不要輕易的懷疑 不要輕易的放棄
    你在我心裡還存有的默契
    我一度以為幻覺 才能如此的殘忍
    要重復多少 要積累多少 才能像這樣彼此的相遇
    其實我知道 縱然你離去 有一種經歷這麼死心又塌地

    都在說愛愛愛 會隨著時間磨滅 把幸福變得絕望
    但只有愛愛愛 才能夠讓我溫暖 我已經離不開你
    可是這書上都說了愛是恆久忍耐
    耗盡我所有卻更加耐人尋味 讓我變得更淡定

    拼命的每次較量 換來的每次原諒
    都會讓自己變得有一點瘋狂
    如果是真愛 就算忍讓對方 還是兩敗俱傷
    不要輕易的懷疑 不要輕易的放棄
    你在我心裡還存有的默契
    我一度以為幻覺 才能如此的殘忍
    要重復多少 要積累多少 才能像這樣彼此的相遇
    其實我知道 縱然你離去 有一種經歷這麼死心又塌地

  • 『如果快樂是有限量的,你會選擇在一天用完它嗎?』

    或許是我的昨日過的太開心了:在台北大街奔跑後,在車水馬龍的街上等待著不存在於互相世界的人,相見歡後,希望有給彼此留下好印象…。我是台灣人卻不知道吃什麼東西,就隨性的讓他憑藉著記憶帶我去吃飯,他實在太可愛了,我可以從眼角餘光感受到店員對他的感興趣,you can read my mind! 哈!我像個小朋友一直頻頻的向他獻寶,一下說Look at my bag, I am an artist, 一下迫不及待的拿出要給他的禮物,嘻嘻,美麗啥時那麼可愛過!雖然我在聽他說話的時候,拿出了亞洲人敷衍了事的態度,讓他頻頻卡針do you know what did I mean? 對不起,太久沒聽英聽嘞!(白眼翻的超經典!!)
    話題天南地北的聊,沒有想像中的尷尬場面! You’re promising. 開心的搭著公車回家,「我們打招呼的方式就是握手呀! 我超愛握手的!」依照不專業華語老師的判斷:他中文的程度應該還不錯喔;他可以看中文菜單而且簡訊寫的東西都是人模人樣的-代表有一定的字彙跟認字能力;我隨便說個什麼東西,他也寫的出來,而且握筆姿勢超正確,寫出來的字也很老成呢-代表他在台灣接觸過至少國小的教育,所以才會有相當的基礎!此外,他還曾經在美國middle school(中間學校:五到八年級”以新穎的教學為主,相當吸引美國人的青睞,學生畢業後升到四年制的高中”)當過中文老師呢!!讓我大吃一驚! 總結:他中文讀寫的能力遠大於口說跟聽力! 如果是以這樣的能力足夠在台灣生存了吧!!
    這樣的人,最好對他保持一點戒心-他可能會以模糊不清的語言,玩弄著語言遊戲,測試著人心,若是一不小心,後果自負!美麗還是有點腦袋的! 
    所以在面對星期二接二連三的挑戰時,顯的有些疲累…(早上六點起床,七點30抵達目的地,八點半辦好手續,九點半準時回到學校上班!或許是因為連日的早起嗎?讓我晚上睡覺時會突然的醒來看看時間,有時還就是睡不著了!這樣讓我白天有些疲累…。)沒有不開心但是就是累趴在我辦公桌上,什麼事都不想做,但今日來上學又是活力滿滿滿(因為是白色情人節嗎?對於做東西給喜歡的人,真的會激發我的腎上腺素,活力滿滿滿的持續,然後累趴…。)
    這幾天的反差讓我想起這個問題: 「或許快樂真的是有限的,所以我必須珍視今天的快樂,來為明天的疲態作準備!是嗎?」又或者今天比較快樂所以明天就是比較沒那麼快樂,或是要接收到較快樂的更上一層,才會覺知到快樂這件事情;倘若今天沒覺知到沒那麼快樂的下一層,那是否就代表憂愁?所以人的情緒是主觀的,有著不同的節奏與程度?!
    這也讓我想起,我們總以為理所當然的事情,其實並非如此。生你、養你的父母不見得會教育你;身旁的朋友也沒有義務一定要聽妳抱怨、倒苦水(吸收負面的能量,真的是一件讓人耐心全失的一項東西。);人生不一定要汲汲營營的生存著,其實工作只是滿足我們物質慾望與打發時間的形式而已。或許這樣說有點負面,但是這些事情我們都視為『理所當然』就不會特別的去懷著感恩的心去面對他!
