Mother'a day lunching out. (Gawd autocorrect, not lynching!)

Because some traditions need to be upheld (shout out to bro!)

It was quite amusing (and slightly terrifying) to see my not so carnivore mum tackle 16oz of ribs... lol

thanks Meirav, I mainly shared this so I don't forget the link in my pile of open tabs to be honest, I'm pressed for time these days (I know, procrastination, time, deadline.... y u no work instead of playing tests?! {because I procrastinate, and because sometimes work annoys me lol}) but should hopefully be able to find a current version next month...

There must be different types of depressions, I know that.

I know of the usual ones that paralises one mentally, renders one immobile and unproductive, or ones that taint the vision with greyness and misery, or a combination of these, and I know these are probably still stereotypes rather than actual circumstances.

Can you still see beauty in a world of misery when depression hits?

I was never officially, clinically diagnosed with depression. Most likely because I avoid doctors like the plague. One day I'm going to succumb to the hospital and they are going to find all the cancers and ailments and rotteness that are hiding within me.

I see beauty in the world, just far removed from mine. I know taking my own life wouldn't solve any of the problems, and will accomplish in nothing but a mess to clean up and a lot of hurt. Even if successful, that'd still be a fail.

I go to work and smile to the people in the corridor because I know this contract may be ending in two months and it is good form and I simple shouldn't try to take any more days off than socially acceptable despite having minimal output at work.

I know I shouldn't avoid a deadline on account it being one of a ‘friend’ (quotation because after this it may no longer be the case), and I've actually stopped taking on new side projects. But I can't bring myself to focus and get through it. I work, just slowly. Too slowly.

I know after a few months I'll look at this and agree with my well-meaning friends that I was just too tired and that I've pushed myself too hard and sweep the term depression under a rug because a depressed person ‘shouldn't’ be able to look past the immediate misery and find a future on the horizon.

But deep inside, I just want to lie down indefinitely and cry for no reason and do nothing and sleep my days away. Fast forward to the part where I actually get over this bout...

Today's highlight in work:

Translated a section of English Representation prior to a section of Chinese discussion into an English summary.

Nobody stopped me until I was quite happily finished with my summarizing skills. Then "So this is what English interpreted into English sounded like."

Cue total break down of me in the meeting room. Much laughter ensued. An HK consultant said: "no worries, it happens, I often speak to Chinese colleagues in English and insist on speaking Chinese with Koreans.'

Head. Desk. Repeat.

    Translator/ Interpreter, present
Story
Tagline
Claws optional, try at your own peril. Nags, rants, growls and meows.
Introduction
Warning: Bilingual. I speak irony and sarcasm fluently.

1/3 Taiwanese Chinese, 1/3 German, 1/3 English
Figuratively. Not literally.

Pessimistic/Optimistic
Loves to Laugh/Loves to Cry
Childish/Mature

Translator, interpreter, blogger, writer of some sort, critic of all things in my own right, and definitely a nag (but not a photographer, just some chick with a camera, and a snappy phone)

Points of note:
- I will have typos, and later correct them (most of the time)
- I will post what I like, and re-share what strikes my chords.
- I will rant, aimlessly. And I will derail my threads.
- I will be nice to you, as long as you are nice to me and my friends.
- I will block you if you can't treat my threads with the respect they deserve.
- And I hope you will enjoy that, because anything less would not be me.

Please rememberI'm inviting you to my living room for a chat, not running a public toilet for you to take a piss.
