因為旅行, 戒了一個星期的電腦, 回來後, 一連看了一整天的新聞, 覺得自己很無知, 世界很大, 而自己的知識是如此地貧乏, 有一種知識貧乏焦慮症. 又想到自己在兩年的大學生涯, 看的readings 很少, being a year3 student, feel like intellectually ignorant, 而這裏的學生的視野很廣 (起碼有大半班的local politics students ), 不但知道墨國的事, 近至美國,加拿大 (coz of the NAFTA free trade among the three countries), 遠至中東, 甚至亞洲, 泰國是亞洲唯一沒有成為殖民地的國家, 他們都知道…更是覺得自己的無知….

知恥近乎勇,於是很努力地讀 readings, but damn, everyday 40 pages, life is not sustainable, and it really leaves me no time for Spanish.  To make it worse, due to sleep deprivation,  the effectiveness and efficiency of my reading process is poor.

I could not recall or link all the stuffs together during the discussion. 5 hours for 30-page long reading….

人變得易燥,而且對自己的力有不逮既恨又無奈… anti-social syndrome sets in.

心情不太好的時候, 我喜歡去剪頭髮.

墨國的太陽很勤奮, 下午6點了, 還是辣辣地掛在半空. 上完課後, 去了一家朋友介紹的理髪店. 店鋪只有一個人, 店主是一個看上去60多的老伯, 不高, 行動有點緩慢, 會說英文, 很友善.

他慢慢地幫我洗頭,不時有水花濺在我的臉上, 客人是坐在椅子上,把頭往後靠在盥盆上, 雖然只是短短幾分鐘, 可辛苦了我的脖子.

在他給我的髪型雜誌中選了一個短髮.
他把書放在座位旁, 看著幫我剪.

他說, 他來自墨國南部一個美麗的城市, beautiful scenery yet life is hard. 跟中國一樣, 墨國也有地區發展不平均的情況, 墨國是南窮北富 而南面卻又是文化/種族最多元化的地區, 古老的瑪雅文明便在墨國的南部, 還有鄰國 Guatemala, Belize, Honduras.  

他說,他來monterrey 有30年了.
他說,他喜歡剪頭髮, to him, hair-cutting is form of art.
他說, 他在大學時, 讀的便是arts, 而剪頭髮是其中一個Course.
他說, he has one brother and one sister.  His brother is operating another salon in another district. His sister is a social worker in a University.

他打了個呵欠, 問他是不是累了, 他回答, “I am just a bit restless these days. you know, the end of the month, people run out of money. but, tomorrow, hope tomorrow will be different.”

Hope for Tomorrow.
Despite today’s unpleasant circumstances, as long as there is hope for the future, people can still carry on. and Mexican people have hope. 
想起在國慶前, 有同學問,with regard to the current drug wars, 為什麼墨國不停止慶祝活動, 西班牙老師的一句, “we have got a life to live, we can’t stop enjoying life. “

The word of the day: Hope

Learn to be hopeful and we have got a life to live.

帶著一個袁詠儀在的頭開心回家.
