夏末

这是一个愉快的夏天。妈妈退休以后,到我这里小住,帮我家里好多事 (世上只有妈妈好,有妈的孩子像块宝~~!)。老公也得到额外时间,做出一些一直想做而未有时间做的代码库。儿子一直有人陪。我自己手上的公事做得令客户满意。我跟客户说,夏末以后我恐怕不能继续帮你们做了呢。客户不动声色,转身立刻打电话给我的主管,表示不太愿意换人做,并给出种种理由。主管看到我总是小心翼翼地哄我继续做。看情况吧。刚刚放了一个礼拜的暑假。全家有去动物园和附近的公园玩,都很开心。在家里的时间,最开心有整块的时间把以前积压的题材写出来一些。今天是暑假最后一天了。接下来会很忙很忙。

罗小姐和杨小姐

今年整个夏天,在北方一家客户处做事。有一天我跟德国同事讨论模块接口的技术细节,讨论以后正准备回自己的座位,冷不防背后一个很好听的女声问我:“你是中国人吗?”,回头是一位看上去 20 几岁,身材娇小玲珑的小姐,金发齐耳,大眼睛娃娃脸。 我就用中文答她。她说听到我说话,估我是中国人。她学过中文,想和我练习,就这样我们认识。 罗小姐是客户办公室里新来的秘书。来自法兰克福周边一个小镇,也是搬到这个北方城市不多久。她性格十分开朗直爽,下了班我们一起去吃饭逛街,讲话很投缘。在法兰克福大学念过两个专业:汉学和德语儿童文学。汉学学了五年,有到北京留学半年。我跟她说,汉学啊?那你的专业才能在这间公司很埋没呢。客户虽然在香港有生意,但是跟她做的事情并没有太大关系。 她说她也觉得是,所以正在参加一个讲师资格培训 — 她曾经在一间在中国有很多生意的大公司给德国员工做适应中国文化的培训 — 那次授课经历给了她极大的乐趣和满足,她喜欢做这一行。正式从业还要本地行会的一纸资格证书,所以她最近正在参加周末的资格培训,争取早日结业。她还跟我说起她刚刚搬到这个北方城市的第一份工是在一间媒体公司,可是刚刚上了四天班,公司总部老板到访,宣布这间分部就此关张。我说,没错你做媒体也很好啊,只是上次运气不好。没关系,你那么年轻,骑驴找马慢慢看吧,这个城市很大又很国际化,总找得到称心的事做。她问我骑驴找马什么意思。我解释给她,她听了哈哈笑,说很高兴认识我。

Relocation, my son’s eventful first year in kindergarten, frequent long distance business travels, very interesting gatherings of a local community at my new hometown, and some big family events are waiting ahead. I wish I had more time for online courses, writing, and photo shooting/editing, […]

拔牙

去年下半年,公司和家里都发生许多许多事,自己有点时间的时候又都 indulge 在网络课程里。很久没有更新这个网志了,先祝朋友们新年好!要写的话题和素材都记着,希望今年有时间全都写出来吧! 今天上午去拔了一颗智齿,觉得值得纪念,先记下来。 我的牙其实都很好,这辈子除了洗牙,跟牙医没什么交道打。只是左边的两颗智齿,长得实在是很里面,很难刷到它们。左下边的智齿因为空间狭小,还有点点长歪。虽然不痛不痒也没人看见,心里总想拔了这两颗难刷的牙,一了百了。于是上次洗牙的时候就跟医生提了一下。他给我拍了一张伦琴片,说左边的智齿咬合很好,而且完好无缺,不建议拔。倒是右上边的智齿,因为下面的智齿没有长出来,长得很长很大,伦琴片上看,快要掉下来的样子。而且片上隐隐约约有一个黑斑,虽然很淡很淡,不能确定那就是蛀牙,总归是个潜在问题。不如拔了它。我们就约了个时间。

My First Coursera Certificate

Today I received my first Coursera Certificate “Introduction to Finance” taught by Prof. Gautam Kaul of University of Michigan. The design of this certificate does not really match the exceptional quality of this course. There is even a typo (!!!) in the text. I would like to have a list of the key content of […]
