既然要每天都寫,那就是再忙都要在睡前寫一寫。

條列式今天吧。

 

1.

一時興起在課堂上問高三準畢業生說:「你們現在都不寫畢業紀念冊了啊?」

學生回答說:「不寫了啊!現在LINE這麼方便!我們都懶得寫字了!」

其實這句回答聽在我耳裡有點心酸、覺得有點恐怖啊。

 

2. 

抱著「都過了一個禮拜了,試試看吧」的心態,中午買了一瓶統一陽光無糖高纖豆漿喝。

初喝的時候沒事,約莫下午第一節快結束的時候,我就知道:慘了。

完全是難以忽視的悶痛;好好一個胃現在居然這麼排斥會讓我脹氣的食物,也是有點可悲。

BTW,今天午餐換了個口味,吃豬排蛋餅。

謝謝元氣廚房的老闆娘知道我需要蔬果均衡,每次都幫我「加菜」!(←毫不懷疑的就是字面上的意義。)

在學校就先轉貼到自己FB上了,回到家後吃晚餐才有時間好好把娜塔莉波曼日前在哈佛大學畢業典禮的演講看完。

覺得對岸強人真的很強啊!聽寫跟翻譯全程20分鐘的演講,重點是翻得有條有理,著實令人佩服。

我看了兩次,覺得確實有些內容啟發到我,所以把連結放在這裡做個紀念:【双语字幕】娜塔莉波特曼2015哈佛毕业演讲

至於哈佛大學放的官方影片,到Youtube搜尋就有了,想練聽力也是可以參考官方影音檔。

20分鐘的演講,我把自己有所共鳴跟啟發的部分key in下來了,暫時貼在這裡,有空再來把中文翻譯跟我的感受另寫一篇文章紀錄。

 

當她提到「開創一條沒有前人指引、全然屬於自己的道路」時:

Sometimes your insecurities and your inexperience may lead you, too, to embrace other people's expectations, standards, or values. But you can harness that inexperience to carve out your own path. One that is free of the burden of knowing how things are supposed to be, a path that is defined by its own particular set of reasons.

 

當她提到當年包括歐巴馬在內的大學同學是如何自信滿滿:

Their bearing and self-confidence alone seemed proof of their prophecy.

 

當她提到在哈佛大學中摸索著自己的定位時:

I realized that seriousness for seriousness's sake, was its own kind of trophy, and a dubious one, a pose I sought to counter some half-imagined argument about who I was.

 

當她提到和丈夫一起去吃日本美味壽司,感受到如何把一件事做到精準、美好、獨一無二、精益求精、爐火純青,而非把重點放在「完成」與「數量」時:

Because they want to do that thing well and beautifully, and it's not about quantity. It's about taking pleasure in the perfection and beauty of the particular. I am still learning now that it's about good and maybe never done. And the joy and work ethic and virtuosity we bring to the particular can impart a singular type of enjoyment to those we give to, and of course , to ourselves.

 

當她提到尋找屬於自己之所以擔任演員工作的理由:

In my professional life, it also took me time to find my own reasons for doing my work.

 

當她鼓勵眾人應該要專注於發展自己的可能:

You can never be the best, technically. Someone will always have a higher jump or a more beautiful line. The only thing you can be in the best at is developing your own self.

 

以上都是令我印象深刻的內容;不得不感謝對岸翻譯的谷大,如果不是他的中文翻譯,我可能無法這麼快就對這些文字有所共鳴吧。

今晚最值得開心的一件事。

透過Spareroom.uk,看了好多間我的預計工作地點Bicester Village附近的住房;很幸運的,我相信自己現在幾乎已經可以算是找到未來兩年的溫馨落腳處了。

隨著前往英國的準備一步步完成,我的心也慢慢穩妥下來。

對於未來,期待與興奮已經多過於緊張和不安了。
