越过山丘,却发现无人等候 | 月旦评

成年之前,你是时而安静的。
趴在卧室的床沿上看书,从战火纷争的春秋战国,到神奇奥妙的浩瀚宇宙,无有烦恼。
成年之前,你也是好动的。
下课铃响了,老师还未宣布下课,心早已飞到了绿茵场上,追逐打闹,足球乒乓。

那时候的你,被教导,把书读好吧。读好了,就什么都有了。所以,那些年,你学到的,是别人想给你去学的,当你回首时,或许已然记不清那些曾经被划入人生使命和命运的书和卷,记忆里或许只有“二五六 二五七 二八二九三十一”吧。

终于成年了,用功十来年,总算跨进了那个大门。笑盈盈地,期待着一切美好的来临。

“放心吧,读好你的书,其他的事情不用考虑”。
可是,大学的书读起来,并不是那么有滋有味。因为,此刻的你,有点怀疑和彷徨。
“这书读了是为了什么?”

四年瞬息而过,拿这两张证穿梭于各个挤破头的宣讲和人才中心。

“英语过六级了吗?”
“有本地户口吗?”
“有对象了吗?”
“父母是做什么的啊?”
一遍又一遍,机械式的提问和回答。

可能你已经忘记了多少次带着希望出门,最后又失落回家,眼看着别人:舅舅给安排了XX局的科员工作,半年之后就能转正;妈妈托人安排到了XX银行,月薪八千,地点在特区CBD;嫁了富二代的那位,在闹市区开了个花艺美甲,每天开着保时捷出门。就连宿舍最不起眼的那个二饼,也考上了北大的光华。

而我,一个人,面对桌上的那一本本发了黄的页。风拉开了窗,随手抄起一本,向窗外飞去,书页随风一张张翻开,里面铺满了我的字迹,似对着我苦笑,然后带着我的怒和委屈消失在视野中。

“书,就只知道读书”。

转过眼,二十五六了。

“该寻对象了”
“再不结婚,生孩子都有点晚了”

在跟男(女)朋友思索了之后,下定决心,七拼八凑拿了首付,在市里面买了一套小两居,开开心心当上了房奴。

每日,节衣缩食,眼睛闹市橱窗的名牌衣服和包,再摸摸口袋,只能摇摇头走开;看到公司跟自己年纪相仿的年轻人,下班后拎这包,径直走向停车场,潇洒地用遥控钥匙打开车锁,先放包,再坐进车里,发动,起步,消失在繁忙的车流。攥紧的公交卡,把手心已经夹出了一道血红的淤痕,松开后,默默地走向回家的站台。

随着时间,你迎来了梦幻的小生命。多么神奇,让你疲惫的心再次有了感动。
每每想到那双大大的眼睛,肉嘟嘟的那双小手,开心得眼泪都会出来。
慢慢地,你开始每天六点前必须起床,温好牛奶,督促小不点儿起床洗漱,吃了早饭,在8点之前送到幼儿园,不然你就赶不上地铁,有可能就会被扣了这个月的全勤奖。
想到老板的嘴脸,你可能真的一刻也不想再做这份工了,可是孩子是需要衣食和教育的,你暗暗发过誓,这辈子不会再让孩子像你一样吃苦。所以,你只能选择忍受。
“我不为自己,我是为了家里的他们,所以脸皮是什么,尊严又能值几个钱。”

转眼间,我们都已过了而立之年,忆往昔皆是苦辣酸咸。有过多少无奈,有过多少的迷茫。记得,父母曾经在我们年少时,喜欢唠叨的一句话:“给你们这么好的条件,让你们学习,为什么不珍惜这无忧无虑的大好时光?”
如今想来,看起来有点像,但又是那么得令人无语。

“A City A Story” photo weekly contest #25 : FREESTYLE 截然不同的欧洲风情 Shopping village

I went to the Suzhou shopping village to buy new bags and skirts for the coming summer last weekend. Bicester shopping village is translated to “奕欧来” in Chinese. “奕” refers to a brilliant, radiant, affluent, rich, and wealthy in Chinese; “欧” literally means “Europe”, that is to say, the brand, service, and shopping environment are inspired from Europe; “奕” and “欧来” are used together to represent “elegant and luxury styles from Europe”. The word “来” also means “come with me.” It is a welcome and invitation among friends.

The Bicester shopping villages are carefully built by a great company named “Value Retail”. And this company has invited 11 distinctive shopping destinations in Europe and China. I loving shopping there because I am attracted by its luxurious and beautiful shopping environment, but also get discount, and extraordinary customer services. It has body guide at every corner to keep us feel safe and help the guest to find the right brand location as the whole shopping center is quite large.

The shopping village brings together the world’s most famous fashion and lifestyle brands to attract visitors in Suzhou.

This shopping village is highly integrated with the local history, culture, and environment. Lets take Suzhou village for an example. It is located beside the beautiful Yangcheng Lake peninsula. From the photos I taken, you could see that the Outlet blends original Venetian elements and distinctive Chinese elements in its design. The architectural style is basically inspired by the features of the Marco Polo era. It has a traditional water garden,which is peaceful and at ease.

Besides the Outlets in Suzhou, The company opened 9 large shopping villages in Europe. To trace back to the first shopping village, it begins in London, and this quickly spreads to Barcelona, Paris, Frankfurt… Continue Reading

画皮画骨难画心

今年的青年节不可谓是红红火火恍恍惚惚啊。那个被人拿着李冰冰照片索要签名的范冰冰的弟弟范丞丞,在节日凌晨发布了一个付费照片,付费60元就后就可以看到清晰照片,结果等他早上睡醒的时候,已经有呜呜泱泱八万人点击了购买,也就是说这一觉睡醒就有了480万元的“睡后”收入。

是喜羊羊提不动刀了?还是你小猪佩奇飘啦?
请给我一个合理的解释?

这说到底,长滴好看就是好啊。

之前,炒个股啥的,要想玩大,那就要杠杆。现在时代不同了,“移动让世界更美好了”,动动手指就能和全世界人做朋友了。只要有资本,不论你是美啊或者漂亮啊或者可爱啦,以及前凸后翘啦,你就能换成钱,而且是几亿级的人口基数之上变现。

吓银不?你说吓银不?

这事儿出来之前,还没怎么觉着,毕竟生活中网红的收入总是那么令人完全信服。这条新闻过后,不禁唏嘘多么令人惶恐的规模效应啊。
感叹归感叹,其他也不说啥了,人家是现实的靠脸吃饭,三个字:
没毛病!”

Magnificent Night Views of An idyllic County House 旺山夜色,春风沉醉的夜晚

旺山夜景绮丽迷人,
千家灯火不夜村,
天上星、水中月、人间灯,天地一色,恍如梦境。
灯火洒溪水,把溪水照耀得恍如白昼,分辨不清何处是水,何处是岸?

April has always been one of my favorite months of the year, not only because it is Spring here and everything is so fresh and clean, but also the delicious food from the farmhouse. When I was little girl, my cousin and I spent countless days with my grandma at the countryside, playing in the rural field, and having fun when catching bees, dragonflies, and butterflies. When I was on vacation from School, we didn’t own cars, only bicycles. I tried every way possible to ask someone’s else to carry me to my grandma’s house. It was so nice!

四月一直是一年中我最喜欢的月份之一,不仅因为四月是春天,一切都是那么清新和干净,而且还有很多农家的美味。当我还是个小女孩的时候,我和表弟表妹会乡下奶奶家玩好多天天,和一帮熊孩子们一起在捉蜜蜂、蜻蜓和蝴蝶,爬树划船无所不能。当我们学校放假时,我想尽一切办法蹭别人的车带我到外婆家去。那会我们没有汽车,只有自行车,也没有太多的污染,一切都很纯净美好。

I spent my last Valentine’s day at Wangshan with Ethan. And now we were here to spend a quiet and peaceful night together, watching the moon, stars, and listening to the sound from nature like the the croaking of frogs. I have been with Ethan for 14 years. We fall in love when I was sophomore. We have met each other at high school. At the time, we are forbidden to think about dating, only study harder and harder. But Ethan always bring me his favourite sweeties and milk. I remember one day, he gave me a bag of pure milk.Then I opened the bag with my month, and asked him for a straw. He said there’s no straw, and picked up that milk bag and drink directly. I thought he was intended to do that.

今天跟Ethan一起自驾到了旺山,准备在这里度过一个宁静的夜晚,赏月亮,看星星,听着蛙鸣蝉叫。我俩上次过来是去年的情人节。话说我和Ethan相恋到结婚已经第14个年头。大二的时候,开始谈恋爱,毕业之后相约到同一个城市工作,然后结婚。我们在高中相识。当时,我们明令禁止谈恋爱,父母和老师只会让我们更加努力地学习。但Ethan总是给我带来他最喜欢的糖果和牛奶。我记得有一天,他给了我一袋纯牛奶,然后我用我的牙齿咬开了袋子,向他要吸管。他老神在在的直接拿起牛奶袋喝,这算不算第一次间接kiss。我一直觉得他是故意那样做的!

望求菩萨来点化,渡我素贞出凡尘

望求菩萨来点化 渡我素贞出凡尘
——可爱 可歌 可泣的异地恋
君住长江头,我住长江尾,日日思君不见君,共饮长江水。
信情能比金坚,怎奈睹物又思人。
爱情在分隔两处的恋人身上,既甜蜜又折磨。

没有朝夕相处的陪伴,走在人潮拥挤的马路和商场,看见成双成对的别人,虽然名义上有个男(女)朋友,可是自己还是孤身一人。

在公司,被领导责备了,心情委屈,好想找个人倾诉,可这个人却不在身边;

签了一单成功了,公司奖励了一大笔分红,特别想开一瓶好酒,去曾经看都不敢看一眼的豪华餐厅订个位子,可是坐在对面的那个人,他(她)好远。 Continue Reading

逝者已矣,生者如斯

Last month, I had a sweet friend leave to be with Jesus. It was a car accident on her travel in Yunnan. The driver is drunk. I HATE all the drunk drivers as they are TRULY killers on the road.

I met her when I was on my honeymoon in Europe. After getting to know each other, I found her father is a business partner of my father. She was truly beautiful inside and out. And she has a little daughter, under the age of two. I cried when my father told me that she was died in the car accident. And her husband is not kind to her parents after her death. He even didn’t allow her little daughter to attend her funeral. All losses are the same in some ways and different in others. I can’t imagine what her parents are going through. They are getting old, with no support from her husband. And her little daughter won’t have a chance to know her mom, as she is only 1 years old and she cannot remember things now. All these literally gives me pain all over. I ask everyone who reads this post could pray for her and her family.

When I think over that she is a new mom, I cannot stop crying. And we could not believe in anyone, even our dearest husband.

I am too scared to write this post in Chinese. Hope everything will get better soon. I tried to let it go, knowing there was literally nothing I could do. But all these things constantly repeat in my mind. I used to share only the happiness on social media, and try my hardest not to share bad memories as I don’t want anyone to know my pain or discomfort. I laughed at those who constantly complain how the world has wronged them. But now I think it’s acceptable to share the sad moments of life.

上个月,我有一个朋友去世了,那会她在云南旅游,一场车祸,从此天涯远隔。司机是醉驾,我没有一刻比现在更痛恨醉驾的司机,他们都是杀人犯。朋友在医院抢救花费了20万,而司机只赔偿了4万,他的父母将朋友带回老家入土为安,路费就花费了3万。

我是在欧洲度蜜月的飞机上遇到了她。在彼此熟悉之后,我发现她的父亲是我父亲的生意伙伴,自此我俩就熟悉起来。她很漂亮,有一个不到两岁的小女儿。当我父亲告诉我她在车祸中死亡时,我当时就哭了。她的丈夫在她去世后,对她的父母很不友善。他甚至不允许他们的女儿参加她的葬礼。我无法想象她的父母正在经历什么,他们日渐衰老,却没有女儿女婿的扶持。她的小女儿甚至没有机会认识自己的妈妈,因为她只有1岁多,还不记事。一联想到这些,我会忍不住哭。希望每个看到这篇文章的人都会为她和她的家人祈祷。

在她去世后,她的丈夫的所作所为,让我觉得我们无法相信任何人,甚至我们最亲密的丈夫。

我原本是用英文写的这篇文章,很害怕翻译成中文。看到朋友的不幸,而我无能为力,所有这些事情在我的脑海中不断重复。我尽我所能不分享不好的回忆,因为我不想让任何人知道我的痛苦或不适。以前我很讨厌悲天悯人的文章。但现在我倒觉得这是可以接受的。希望一切都会很快好起来。

一味追求纯粹也会害人

曾经在很多人的心目当中,写文章,甚至是一切和文档有关系的事情,都应当是文科应该干的事情。理、工科的人往往就会觉得,我只要学好数理化,有一门自己的专业技术,基本就无敌了。

这种思想在脑海中一住就是二三十年,当从一个小技术员慢慢成长起来的时候,老板开始让你熟悉管理,还要你把技术包装成牛气轰轰的产品,你词穷了

也有在专业领域研发出了领先的专利,想要以此创业当老板,可是问题是,MD,我说的话投资人根本听不懂,而自己脑海中是一片的碧海蓝天和金山银山,可怎么就说不出来,就做不出一份像样BPContinue Reading

Stephen Hawking, May he Rest in Peace 比起霍金的智商 我更欣赏他心的自由

I once closed my door alone and watched a film called “Theory of Everything” alone, because I admire the searching and analysis sprite of the unknown and inexhaustible thing.

Stephen Hawking believes in atheism but he is like a evangelist. He did not create steam engine to bring the industrial revolution like Carter, nor did he design computers with the mathematical soul of Turin’s miraculous version, so he was quite different from ordinary pragmatic scientists.

He is a philosopher who uses scientific methods, boldly conceives and validates, analyzes time and space, explores the meaning of human existence, and seeks connections between being and being lost.

Due to the current inertia, people like to speak with the facts they have seen. Therefore, there are some people who disagree with Hawking and regard him as an unscrupulous person.

However, in the big world, whoever can see the nature of it, the utilization rate of the human brain is so few. Therefore, I believe there should be bold and novel speculation and thinking.

There are many things in this world that are so coincidental. When the young Hawking is eager to explore the truth, he is suffering from a progressive illness. All this seems to imply something.

Now that Hawking has died, no one knows where he has gone. However, the road to discovery and search has not stopped and the WILL will indefinitely last forever.

My fingers can still be active, my brain can still think, I have the ideal of lifelong pursuit, loved and be loved, my loved ones and friends, and I have a grateful heart…

Although I am inconvenient in action and I need the help of a machine, my mind is free. Continue Reading

无孔不入的共享经济

苏城越发地堵了。于是,早高峰时间我开始适应地铁出行,出了地铁可以步行一会儿,这样也可以算是小小的锻炼。

这两天春雨绵绵,没有出地铁站,我APP上定好了网约车,出站正好可以上车。

说到网约车,便利了生活,我深有体会。想到十多年前的苏城,要打一辆出租车是多么地艰难,头十分钟永远是“有客”。后来有了“电调车”,涨价60%,用着不开心,可还得用,商贸圈的停车位以及高铁站的停车费,你懂的。

后来网约车进入国内,很好。虽然风波不断,但至少,我觉得现在打车比以前方便,而且打车费没有涨价。

另外,今天在网约车上看到了件好玩儿的东西,在座位上套了一个按摩座套,只要扫一下二维码,可以在车上体验按摩座椅。 Continue Reading

Hannah朋友圈奇葩说

第一篇 最好的礼物不是最贵的而是用得起的

近期碰到奇葩事了,友人圈子里的事情。
压抑不住我一颗八卦的心,赶紧动手写出来,大家一起发表感想。

mmexport1513233415826.jpg

去年,因为工作的原因,我接触到了政府在北京的外设单位,从总经理到总监再到我这位朋友,经过一年的时间基本都熟悉,都成为朋友,有的还经常相约。

先介绍下故事的主人公背景:

X君是这家单位的总监,负责的项目跟我有关,但一直处于对接,朋友圈点点赞的样子,所以印象中觉得此人只是还行。
Q姐是这个项目里,联系我的助教,年轻但社会,中层社会家庭的女孩子,有些叛逆,不拘小节,爱夜生活,玩得大。
Z君,小年轻,从外形到谈吐,只有一个词可以形容——屌丝青年。
G姐,海龟。中层知识分子家庭,独居,无所畏惧。
T姐,已婚小少妇。身材倍儿好,家庭普通。

故事还要从前段时间Q姐辞职说起。 Continue Reading
