A little boy asked his mother “Why are you crying?”一個男孩問他的媽媽:「妳為要哭呢?」

“Because I’m a woman.” she told him.媽媽說:「因我是女人!」

“I don’t understand.” he said.男孩說:「我不。」

His mom just hugged him and said, “And you never will”他媽媽抱起他說:「永遠也不會。」

Later the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?” 後來小男孩就問他爸爸:「媽媽毫無理由地哭呢?」
 

“All women cry for no reason,” was all his dad could say.
「所有女人都這樣。」他爸爸回答。

The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.
小男孩長成了一個男人,但仍舊不女人哭泣。

Finally he put in a call to God; and when God got on the phone, he asked, “God, why do women cry so easily?”最後,他打電話給上帝;當上帝拿起電話時,他問道: 「上帝,女人容易哭泣呢?」

God said: “When I made the woman she had to be special. I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world; yet, gentle enough to give comfort”上帝回答說:「當我創造女人時,讓很特別。我使的肩膀能挑起整個世界的重擔;並且又柔情似水。 

“I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining”我賦予耐心,使在別人放棄的時候繼續堅持,並且無怨無悔地照顧自己的家人,渡過疾病和疲勞。

“I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly”我賦予在任何情況下都愛孩子的感情,即使的孩子傷透了的心。

“I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart”我賦予包容丈夫過錯的堅,和用他的勒骨塑成來保護他的心。

“I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly”我賦予智慧,讓知道一個好丈夫是不會傷害他的妻子的, 但有時我也會考驗支持自己丈夫的決心和堅 

“And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively touse whenever it is needed.”最後,我讓可以流淚。只要願意,這是所獨有的。

“You see: The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.”看,女人的漂亮不是因為她穿的衣服、保持的體型,或者梳頭的方式。

“The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart the place where love resides.”女人的漂亮必須從的眼睛中去看,因那是心靈的窗戶和愛所在之處。

Athos visited Dallas on Memorial Holiday. Went out for the Dim Sum Lunch. First time to Kirin Court for him. He is impressed with the food. It’s amazing how the restaurant get so crowded during the weekend. I guess if the food is good, people will keep coming back…

Marina’s BD at Maggiano’s

Went out to celebrate Marina’s BD.  Can’t believe I forgot my wallet and my comp card in the office.  Vic has to drive me back to school to get my comp card for the discount.  Sometime I can’t even believe my own stupidity…

樂觀的人 September 22, 2006

樂觀的人,是從挫折中「發現希望」 我們能多學習「正面思考」,用比較「樂觀 」的角度來看待事情,心情一定更愉悅、更快樂。 同樣一件事,若能從正面、樂觀的方向來思考,就 會使自己充滿「喜悅和盼望」!所以,樂觀的人, 是從挫折中發現希望;悲觀的人,是在成功中尋找 挫折!

Payoff the house by the end of 2007 September 15, 2006

It’s been four years since moving into the house.  It’s an investment in the begining to build this house.  Jen and I originally plan to sell the house in 5 years.  Not sure why I decide to go back to school to pursue my PHD and completely ruin the whole plan.  Of course, I lost patience with the monthly house payment and decide to throw all my savings to payoff the house early.  Now it gets to the point that I am fulfilling my “American Dream” next year and would pretty much payoff the house by the end of 2007.  It’s like a dream come true, but I didn’t even feel excited.  What this leaves me is a completely empty bank account… What an expensive “American Dream?”

相親? September 11, 2006

談戀愛對年輕人來說,是酸甜苦辣樂在其中,尤其是在二十出頭的求學階段 或初成為社會新鮮人時,除了唸書不談戀愛好像也沒有其它的事好做,而對剛踏出社會的菜鳥,一下班有人可以相依相畏,舒解工作上的壓力和不順利,也是一件挺 重要和幸福的事,所以在那樣的年紀談戀愛是一種必需的行為,小情侶卿卿我我只羨鴛鴦不羨仙,可以譜出許許多多動人的戀曲,但對卡在三十大關,正努力要在人 生競技場上衝刺的現代男女來說,談戀愛真的是一件既奢恥又浪費時間的事,誰也沒有空再慢慢的每天花前月下的約會打電話,更甭提寫情書或倆情依依每天接送, 這並不代表三十歲的人缺乏浪漫的感覺,而是時間太寶貴了,如此一來青春歲月蹉跎,越來越沒有機會,自然離結婚路越來越遠。

三十歲的情愛最 大的問題就是少了機會,所以就有人發明出所謂的相親,這種由來已久的相識方式,雖然有點老套,但對急於走入結婚大門的人而言,確實是最有效的方式之一,尤 其對在情場身經百戰,猶然孤家寡人的三十未婚族而言,或多或少都參加過相親的行列,許多人將相親想得十分的老土和老套,其實對現代人而言,相親的形式早由 傳統的媒人婆帶著男女雙方及父母長輩對看,進步到同儕間倆路人馬,美其名玩在一塊,事實上男男女女大夥各自心裡有數,或著去參加時下流行的交友聯誼社,更 急的就上上媒體的紅娘牽線活動,無非都想擴大生活圈增加命中率,讓姻緣路更順暢。

可是平心靜氣而論,相親並不是一件好玩的事,女友悅在三 十五歲時才開始有點著急,之前有點大女人主義的她,總是認為相親似乎有點跟不上時代,可是一跨上老大不小的行列時,所有可以塘塞的理由都用盡了,最後的絕 招就是有親必相,這時家中二老總沒有話說,但也不是那麼順利,她說:『看中意的對象,常常是身邊來陪伴主角的配角,這些配角也許是主角的兄弟或同學同事, 但這不是最糟的,最糟的是這些看得順眼又談得來的男人,都已經是別人的老公』,她無奈的嘆了口氣笑了笑說:『相來相去真是一件挺辛苦的事,有一回還相到男 方小自己兩歲,飯也吃了,天也聊了,結果男方只冒出一句,妳好像很少保養皮膚的樣子,搞了老半天,原來是介紹的人謊報年齡,硬是把三十有五的五去掉』。

而 早已過了而立之年的德,周遭的朋友無不受其父母重託,只要有機會都盡力要為這位頗有價值的單身漢介紹女友,因此每次大夥聚在一塊時,就常聽到某人又幫他找 到還不錯的對象,可以安排個時間相相,他說:『只要說到相親,那我簡直可以開班授徒了,只是到目前為只還沒有成功的案例』,此時他會開始神氣活現的形容他 的相親三不曲,他說:『一是不拒絕,只要有人要介紹女朋友一概來者不拒,二是不堅持,不堅持一定要什麼條件的對象,讓選擇範圍擴大,三是不惹麻煩,反正把 相親當成認識朋友的一種機會,不管對方是何方神聖,全部是見招拆招,由普通朋友開始培養,秉持慢工出細活的觀念,儘量不要製造單獨約會的機會,若是有緣, 該是你的一定跑不掉』,至於有沒有效,目前是看不出任何成效。

其實現代人的感情問題,我們的上一代甚至上上一代都遇到過,唯一不同的是, 過去的人重視的是家族成員的感受,結婚也是兩個家庭的結合,如果有什麼不滿意,在社會道德與家庭倫理的壓力下,全都可以隱忍下來維繫著相親而結的婚姻關 係,而現代人對感情的好惡完全表現在自我的忠誠度上,對相親的對象的感覺,也很明白的表現出是否適合,相親只是造出一個相識的機會,接下來的過程還是與談 戀愛一樣,所以對三十未婚族來說,相親是給別人一次機會,同時也給予自己多幾次選擇的機會,雖說一點也不浪漫又有些老土,但不可否認的卻是一種利人又利己 的好方法之一。

Aging September 6, 2006

Athos came down to Dallas this weekend.  Met with him and Jaime for lunch.  It’s a shocker to see Athos getting old, with more gray hair now.  Compared to last time I saw him, he looks much older now.

This is what I am scare of.  The signs of aging.  One day I will look at the mirror and see the signs of aging catching on me.  Maybe it has already caught on without my acknowledgement.  I hate getting old…I hate looking old…

Done with Summer Paper September 3, 2006

Finally, finally, and finally….it’s time to let go…it doesn’t matter how much more time you spend on it.  It’s not getting any better anyway.  It’s time to let go and pray for the best.

It’s so hard to figure things out around here.  There is no way to figure out how Jungseek, Tian, and Menish are doing since I didn’t attend the seminar.  I didn’t know how Vic and Marina is doing either.  It’s hard to believe that Marina didn’t even start writing yet.  I am sure Vic will crack something up at the time it’s due.  Sung is probably the first person that turn in his paper so far.  He is just so sick of it that he couldn’t put up with it for one more second. 

I am letting it go as well. Time to move on…

It’s pathetic that no one has time to celebrate since everyone is buried under the fall semester already….no break at all…
