隨光呼吸 @tainan,taiwan

So I’ve been back for 3 weeks already. Everything is pretty much the way I expected, no surprises.

As expected, I started working right away. The work is challenging but manageable. I still get bored nonetheless, thinking it doesn’t really matter. More certain than ever that my dad and I live on different planets. As expected, my mom somehow changed her view into believing that I need to stay longer to accomplish all the tasks. Think I can prove her wrong.

Then there are the inevitable. Most people assumed that I am back for good to work in the family business. Those who asked were surprised to learn that I have other plans. Now I just smile and say I don’t know to avoid the ensuing avalanche of questions.

Not all is bad though. I enjoyed the Chinese New Year, visiting relatives. I enjoy walking the small city of Tainan and start liking it. I enjoy sitting in a cozy cafe with my laptop like I did in Van, when I don’t have to work overtime. I enjoy taking lots of photos, and I’m posting soon I promise 😀

Yup this is exactly the same post from facebook. If you stalk my blog, you are tagged too.

1. I don’t usually tell things about myself. If you don’t already know, that’s why.

2. I am addicted to anything strawberry flavored, but don’t feel so
strongly toward fresh strawberry, and I don’t like strawberry juice, it
tastes weird.

3. I used to be immune from caffeine. No amount of coffee could stop me from falling asleep. Bad for cramming.

4. I have problem communicating my thoughts verbally. It’s almost frustrating hearing myself talk.

5. I mix soy milk and milk together.

6. I am inseparable from my laptop. My CD-ROM and RAM have problem but
I don’t want to send it in for repair. I don’t know if I can live
without it so many days.

7. I write slowwww.

8. I am so lazy that I have shortcuts on almost everything to minimize key strokes and mouse clicks when surfing.

9. I was raised by my auntie and didn’t live with my parents until elementary school.

10. I don’t have a DSLR. I am constantly asking myself if I want one
because of the size and weight, but honestly I just want to kick ass
with my point-and-shoot.

11. I can be very focused, but I have short attention span. Yes they are compatible.

12. I get tired of TV drama very easily; not knowing the ending doesn’t bother me.

13. I don’t like TV. I feel dumb watching TV. I suspect TVs suck brain
power the way Riddler did in Batman 3. I’d rather watch TV shows on my

14. I read a lot, but I have problem finishing books. I always have 10+
books currently reading lying around, most of which beside the toilet.

15. I sometimes rather watch movies alone. Other people’s opinions
bother me, and the need to come up with an opinion when I don’t have
one is annoying.

16. I hate my glasses.

17. I am passionate about the environment and social issues, but I
don’t usually talk about that in public. I don’t want to be a
self-righteous smug. Still searching for my balance.

18. I had no problem finishing a 10 days bike tour around Taiwan, but I fell off my bike twice in UBC, in one week.

19. I am anal, but I didn’t know about it until recently.

20. I have serious problem catching lyrics. I suspect I suffer from some kind of psychological disorder.

21. I never smoked a cigarette. Can’t stand the smell, and I regard it
as a sign of weakness. I’ve smoked weed once, but I didn’t inhale. No
it’s not peer pressure. It’s a long story, but it sure was fun.

22. I hurt my knee once while snowboarding. It took a while to recover
because my family doctor gave me a false diagnosis. Never go on a ski
trip since.

23. I suck at sports. I never learned how to dribble. There, I’ve said it.

24. I fucking hate mosquitoes. I’ve got stun twice while typing this note, and I can’t kill it.

25. I want to do things that matters.
