Adopted Twin: Let me ask you something. If you had a sum of money that allowed you to no longer work for a living, what would you do?

Me: Hmmm... Travel the world, maybe. Immigrate indefinitely.

AT: What, just to travel and play? Or...

M: Not just play... to live at every spot for a year or a half, maybe. To experience.

AT: Why would you live like a nomad?

M: To really understand, maybe, that culture, that city, that tiny part of that particular country. And I'd be able to learn the language!

AT: What if one place is too wonderful and you'd not want to leave?

M: Then at least I'd have found a place I really, really love.

Diagnosis: Terminal Wanderlust.

On my way to the cultural park yesterday, I stopped along the way and signed a petition about changing the referendum system in Taiwan.

The organisers asked "can you take a few copies with you for your family?"

I had to reply "I'm so sorry...my family is firmly in the opposing campaign."

Cue much laughter.

"One day they will see the light." The young girl was adamant.

On a rainy gloomy day, it almost sounded romantically poetic.

昨天在往華山的路上,拉著朋友簽了公投第二階段的連署書。

工作人員問我:有沒有家人朋友有興趣的可以拿回去分享?

我有點尷尬的回答:對不起,我家深藍色,真的很抱歉…

大夥一陣笑。

“沒關係,總有一天會看到光明的。” 年輕朝氣的女孩說。

雨下個沒完的梅雨陰鬱季節,聽起來浪漫的有些詩意。

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...

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

  • SAP / Independent
    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.
