筹备过程

4 月22日是活动的起点,本是个人的号召,动员学生捐出冬季御寒衣物,筹集后,航空包裹运送往灾区。原以为,有赞助商支付运费就万事大吉了,其实远没有那么 简单:首先赞助商要的是双赢,我找了LKW-Walter,这个运输公司把皮球踢倒总部,说kufstein不管这事儿,international的事 儿由wien总部负责;其次没有后勤支援,上海的辅导员帮着我联系国内红十字会,回信告知目前只收捐款,不收物资。Caritas维也纳总部告知我捐物不 如捐款,当地购置生活用品更便捷廉价,5月初主题转变,捐款取代捐物。

为了获得校方支持,我试图多次与Stiftungsvorstand(类似董事)约见,但学校内部有势不两立的两个政派:Administration和 Stifungsvorstand,前者能提供我学校场地教师帮助,后者可能能提供我资金,我只能选一;约见Stiftungsvorstand被告之不 成,我只能“投靠”Administration”,接受其建议,与学生会、SKVM(Sport-, Kultur- & Veranstaltungsmanagement)合作,延长筹备周期,将时间定在了6月15日。

对我来说,50米短跑我可以名列,但800米长跑,我排名基本就靠后了,耐心和韧劲是我的软肋;如果可以,我喜欢一鼓作气,速战速决。从4月22日到6月15日,中间还夹着我5月底去意大利的8天旅行,这对我来说是个考验。

Administration,狭义的说是与Marketing Department交涉,他们在收到我的提议后,立马同意了这个活动,a good course, certainly “yes”,愿意提供facility支持(包括场地,多媒体设备等),不过条件是必须找到”a big guy on board”,同时必须确保这个活动是”自下而上“,必须由当地的学生,比如SKVM(Sport-, Kultur- & Veranstaltungsmanagement)系的学生将”慈善晚会“作为一个project上报到学校,我与之合作,如此才可以开展。我最初不理 解这些条件的用意,直至晚会当晚Prof. Duenas说,”举行这样一个慈善晚会对Fachhoschule来说也是一件好事”,我才明白了,这两个条件蕴含着外交玄机:玉树慈善晚会成了fh对 外宣称的国际友好行动,我也是一个棋子。

5月初我基本确定了合作对象,Barbara,SKVM 08的学生,同时来自social department of ÖH,慈善晚会将作为SKVM的一个project,同时ÖH将支付post&flyer的打印费用和非酒精类的饮料费用。Barbara负责与 校方Marketing & Director: Mr. Lüthi联系,我负责摄影展照片的筹措,中国纪念品、玉树和上海世博的影像的收集。5月中旬,进行顺利,我获得了上海的院长的支持,愿意提供赞助。我不 再是孤军奋战,当天收到院长回信时我那眼泪哗啦啦地流啊;之后筹集照片,拜托家联系了悟空,他二话没说地发我ftp,我早早地将玉树震前的照片收入囊中, 但震后的第一手照片因为版权问题让我破费周折,迟迟无法获得。万幸通过梓华姐联系到新民晚报摄影师张龙,通过yahoo.com的mailbox收到原 图。又万幸通过加菲,联系到昆明摄影师倪玉星,年轻有为的金镜头奖获奖者,震后第一时间前往玉树17天,拍摄大量内涵丰富感人至深的作品;为了慈善他一口 答应,但因事务繁忙,国际通话实属不便,我真是急得火烧眉毛,烧了2天,终于好事多磨,又结交一友。6月11日我将22张照片送到webetechnik 打印成A2大小,税前130欧。

因为5月24日-6月7日的假期,加之我自身的懒惰(800米的末段,我快憋气了…),PR宣传真正意义上开始于6月10日。11日,我捧着一沓 flyer,进教室宣传。SKVM09 Projektmanagement 和IBS09 Wirtschafts- und Gesellschaftsrecht (奇囧无比的是Wirtschafts- und Gesellschaftsrecht 由 kufstein 新任市长 Krumschnabel 授课,我瞪着眼熟的他看了很久,愣是没法相信满大街竞选海报中帅气的中年男人就站在我的面前。回家路上拍脑顿悟,再返回学校时他已提前下课,一看 表,17:15,我抱着一丝希望冲去Rathaus,大门入口,看到一女士打扮端庄得体,我真是一逮一个准,市长秘书,赶紧把中国结和10张flyer交 予她,她答应vice president回来参加慈善晚会,真是上天眷顾。)

6月12日-6月15日是ppt难产期,闭关。感谢Wilber给我制作的mov视频,他对presentation的热爱绝对吓到了我。我对自己有信 心,但还是在最后一秒将ppt完成,不知因为焦虑不安,无意识地吞下了多少yogurt, biscuits, candies, chips…下次不要再这么折磨自己了,脑袋和胃都受不了了。

14日上午布展。15日下午布置会堂,15日晚6点Christian墨西哥大男生第一个达到来帮我,随后Viktoria, Andrea, HK girls, Ines也都陆续到了。18:50Strategic Innovation Group 1下课休息20分钟,会堂开始热闹;我无比担心他们离去后的冷清,Ines像是我的女英雄,征得Prof. Duenas的同意,一个班留下来听presentation,我感激万分。

晚会可惜Prof. Vohradsky没有到,P&S没有出席,但Markus来了,他站在接待台前,不知何时就这么一直站着,后来我才知道他听到了我的演讲,我很 高兴。韩国女孩,Carlos, Heidi, Vivi, Justin, Armin, 陆续来了,我很感激。那一晚,我说了很多thank you, 顺利到我自己都无法想象,我傻傻地告诉Mr. Lüthi,我感觉自己在做梦。

21:30,陆续的离开,我还在教Christian写”笑口常开“(真是字如其人,他”画”的“笑”比我规规矩矩的“笑”开心豪放很多),我写给 Barbara“友谊天长地久 – 庚寅年慈善晚会…” 最后一步清点善款,545.52欧,Natalia, Anna (Myeoung), Ally, Po, Venus, Mabel, Barbara & I, 见证这一刻。

回家路上,我话很多,我知道自己开始异常;想喝酒,想听Prost杯杯撞击的声响,想迷失在人声鼎沸中,可惜回家洗个澡,我只是facebook上留言一一感谢,然后默默睡去。

下一次庆贺,可以有酒喝,有朋在。

聊记。

homesick

快回家了,回家了,家,这个词真好,温暖人心。

从早8:30出门,一整天在学校,晚7天回屋,饿慌了,烤了一个蒜香法式长棍,又是伴着牛奶,狼吞虎咽,三下五除二解决;这吃饭速度不变胖才怪呢,无奈不得已也,回家大概可以营养和保持体形同时吧🙂

明天就是慈善晚会了,presenatation也大概成型,突然很泄气,绷紧的神经像失去弹性的橡皮筋,耷拉着。

突然发现自己无意义的流水账写不下去了。

I’d better continue modifying my presentation. Cross finger for tomorrow’s charity night. I am afraid to imagine, too much effort on it, it is already an overwhelm for me to predict, let it go.

Shanghai, I am coming back. So many familiar faces up in my mind, I miss U so much. How is everything going on with you? Lotto, how many films have you watched during these two semesters? Secilia, any gossip to hear from you? I am curious. LE, sometimes you come to my night dreams, not because still love u, I think, but because you are a part of my memory, I am trying my best to forget you.  Prof. Liu, did u get my postcard from Vatican? …

Shanghai, may not be a comfortable city to live, not to say to compare to Kufstein, but it is hometown, one word is enough as an explanation.

China, may be a developing country, but it has fantastic culture, it has own Chinese characters, its VARIETY deeply attracts me.

回家,我要买书看,豆腐块的汉字都能让我高兴很久很久;有多久没有阅读小说了,有多久没有去电影院吃着甜甜的爆米花,有多久没有去听听话剧,生锈的耳朵眼睛肠胃呼唤着回家。为了筹备慈善晚会,听《玛尼墙》,听《琵琶相》,听朗朗的《世博协奏曲》,我的心已不再安分。

世界杯打响,昨晚和P&S一起喝着Leicht & Fruchtig的香槟,看着4:0的一边倒赛事,上楼,酒暖的胃睡了一个沉沉的夜,特别舒坦。I deeply love them, wondering when I can meet them again after my departure in July. Studying in England, is it possible? Chance is rare. Invite them to my wedding, possible, but who knows when will be my wedding. Honey moon in Kufstein, could be, still unknown when.

A shower to stop negative homesick.

Cheer Up! Tomorrow is your day!

Tears in my eyes…

为什么我的眼里噙着泪水,因为我对这片土地爱得深沉…

love pill

I know I am ill, bad headache and caught a flu. However I am glad I am ill, finally I can stop struggle  in my mind, TA or Charity Night or Bachelor Thesis. Three is too much for my mind at this moment, so let’s just focus on the Charity Night.

Mr. Vohradsky, please forgive me, I am not a responsible TA, I know, but please give me more time, after 15 June. I will be back; You know that I am keen on finding out what is solo-priority company, you know that I am eagerly looking forward to meet you and your master students again in Shanghai.

I took a shower before Barbara come, I used up all the energy to have a discussion about the charity night with her, I tell myself:  stick to it, you initial the idea, you have to lead it to the end, a perfect ending at least.

Wondering where is the power coming from, I think it is the Love Pill, when I look at the photos of Mr. Ni, I cannot help but being deeply touched and moved. How can you ignore the pains, the cryings, the begging coming out of the photos; Tough their eyes, you know that they are asking for food, clean water, medical care, shelter…They are crying for the lost of homeland, beloved relatives, daily necessities… They are begging for the help from the outsider, begging us to tell them what and how they can do to rebuild their houses…

I am thinking what I can do, we can do.

Am I still the teenager? No.

Am I still the one who has no power to change the current situation? No.

Am I still the one who sitting in front of the TV, doing nothing but sighing for the disasters happened all the world? No.

I am now at the age of  in want of a change. Change a better personality of myself. Change a better world with my own hands, with all the efforts I can make, with the courage and knowledge given by my beloveds.

Yes, I can!

Still I am ill, don’t worry, I am still alive.

cheer up!

“Don’t let the grass grow under one’s feet.”
It is a slam which means don’t stand still doing nothing until the grass grow under the feet.
I am not the person wandering around, doing nothing, but I definitely not good at time management and attitude/mind adjustment. I hate myself easily become sad or negative when something bad happens, it could be a sudden news, someone’s facial expression, a direct reject or critics… From time to time I tell myself not to care what others’ think about you, BE YOURSELF!  “Dance, like nobody is watching.” I can’t, I am too sensitive, it is so hard for me to change the personality, though I am trying. God help me.

I have a long “wish list”, those are the wishes I am going to accomplish in my life, such as “Once drive a plane” “Once up to the sky with a hot air balloon” “Once bungee jumping” “Once parachute” “To learn piano” “To learn wine tasting” “To write a book” “To work for UN”…

Life is so colorful, I should not let puzzles block my way!

Weisse Mousse au Chocolat

Too sweet for me, I almost forgot what is hardworking should be.

Look at the mirror, I am far away from being a perfect person I dreamed of. I have great passion to do what I loved, at the very moment, I wanna do the research to find out the solo proprietorship in Shanghai, if it is possible I wanna be self-employed and name the company: “sunny” (The sun gives me power and happiness, all the time, no exception.) I know I am good at event management,  “event” here includes individual wedding, birthday party, alumni reunion; corporate events; a photo gallery, a movie festival, a concert, a football game, or mega-event(I cannot handle it now, but one day, i know, there will be a day.) It sounds so GREATTTTT.

Barbara said she doesn’t like facebook, because it is sorta a tracking of others’ privacy, I didn’t expect this answer, but after a while thinking, when I restart my facebook, I found it is boring and disgusting(sorry to put it that way, it is the fact). Here comes the question, whether internet community brings human beings closer or farther?

BTW, Barbara’s flat is quite beautifully decorated, white is the theme color, clean but with a poetic rhyme, I really admire the girls who spend a lot of  time building a FAMILY-style of flat of their own, Barbara, Sarah, Silvia, and Ines. Different stylish design, but all cozy and lovely.

These are the girls gonna be great moms and wives😀

–Pity, internet broke down, the draft gone, I didn’t wanna repeat what I wrote minutes ago, let it go, sleep now…

Calm Down

When time is pressing, it is a challenge.

I am asking for the challenges in my life, when it comes, to tell the truth, I am still afraid of facing it.

Still I am trying to overcome it, tons of assignments come  to me recently, however, while I calm down, reduced to two. One TA, One Charity Night.

Rarely admit that I am busy, coz deep in my mind, I believe there is a way to be done,  A Chinese saying “Time is like a sponge” or a great Chinese writer Luxun, the tip for his success is he writes when others are having a cup of coffee.

Ryne asked me today, while we were watching a movie “Shall We Dance” on tv, “what should we look like when we are 40s, at the age, let’s say, Richard Gere”, my mind went blank; I force myself not to think about anything far more than I can reach, otherwise it will be nothing but a burden. I actually know my dreaming life, it is a simple scene I shared with Andrea months ago; it is a house with a french window, sunshine coming inside, warm and cozy, I was reading a nice book, while my husband looks at me with loving glances; we chat and find sth. interesting to do together. No business, no complications. For so long, I haven’t had a time to calm down reading a book without any disturbs. I miss my teenage times, absorbed by classic novels, Russian inspiring and reform novels, British love stories, “The Thorn Bird” “Three Musketers” “The Gadfly””Count of Monte Cristo”…I’m lovin’ it. When and where can I read again!!!

Selina asked me to fill out a questionnaire this afternoon, it is about your  belief, religion and family relationship. Afterward, I went up a hill with Ines, lovely chat and blow several dandelions, flying away… Close to the nature, wunderschön. A classic movie shared with Ryne in the evening: Holiday, watched, laughed, cried for dozens of times, so far some lines are written in my mind. The background music is sassy! The tent of Sophie and Olivia is seriously cool!

Ok, calm down, work harder for today, then I can make my reading dream comes true!
