my future, my suitcase [Dec. 5th, 2008|11:31 pm]
valbasement
Although there's still one month left beofre I leave for Leicester,UK
I started to pack my stuff today...one suitcase can't carry too many things, so i have to leave most of my beloved things home..

it seems a little bit unreal to me now, to make a decision of leaving my hometown for at least 3 years and live in a foreign country .
and i know it will even get more unreal after I'm really there.

I'm too tired recently, not my body, but my soul.

I don't want to explain my future [Nov. 24th, 2008|09:38 am]
valbasement
My interview for the PhD scholarship is coming this weekend, and that's why I can't pay attention on anything else right now.
If i pass the interview, the next three years in UK will be totally sponsored by Taiwanese government, which means my parents can save a lot of money. I always want them to spend their money on themselves, go traveling, having a good time.
I already prepare my self-introduction for this interview, but in real life, I just hate explaining to others what I' gonna do in the future. All I can say is I will try to do my best in this moment, but I don't know what's waiting for me in the future.

I still remember one time I was questioned by a business man, who keep asking me " Do you know what kind of person you want to be in the future?" and he mentioned a "great " example, whom was his classmate and become a TV reporter , and he thought that's because she knew what she wanted to do since she was still very young.

Alright, but the truth is, she doesn't only become a TV reporter but also becomes that kind of woman who steal other woman's husband and make them divorce. how funny, maybe she made up her mind to do this from childhood too?

And that business man also keep questioning me :" if you're really an outstanding student just like your father said, why can't you get scholarship? do you know how much money you're going to waste for a PhD?" I hate being questioned just because what I'm going to major is art history. if I am going to get a Phd in science field, no one will question me, and they may respect me with their whole heart.

Fuck, I admit that I'm that kind of person who loves the idea of revenge. the story of 'Le Comte de Monte-Cristo' used to be my favorite.
There was only one reason I try my best to win the scholarship: for my parents, but there's another reason now: to stop the asshole business man humiliating me and my father.

so, wish my good luck for the interview.

alone again, but always happy [Nov. 20th, 2008|10:42 am]

One day when I was watching Wegman's  video art, I found this sentence: Alone again, but alway happy.

I think that's part of my goal in my life. Of  course I do want to find someone who will be willing to be with me for the rest of life, but I hope I can be that kind of person who can be happy with a single life.

Recently I feel the wave of loneliness is almost killing me. I'm waiting to go to UK in jan and right now I spend most of time staying at home, writing and missing my friends. Since I moved back to my parents' place after getting my MA degree, now I'm far away from friends, and MSN can't do any real help. My parents are perfect but I feel my life is like a blank tape right now, without recording any interesting riffs.

I know after starting my Phd life in UK, my blank tape will soon be full of  new experiences and new friends, so I'm really looking forward to it.
Right now I am trying to enjoy the feeling of blankness.

SOMETIMES I DO WONDER WHY I KEEP TRAPPING MYSELF FOR SUCH A LONG TIME.
WHY CAN'T I JUST MAKE MYSELF HAPPIER?

IT SHOULDNT BE SO HARD.

I CAN'T CONTROL OTHER'S THOUGHTS BUT I SHOULD CONTROL MY OWN.

SMILE.
