A discriminated American. Plus, a holiday by the sea and a picture with my friends
Having been in classes for six days, at least half of my schoolmates feel tired, including me, but I am still carrying on......
I get my student ID again after so many years; I am very happy about this, so I show it to everybody everywhere......Although, just an old school girl......
It is very sunny today, I finally don’t feel cold any more, and summer is around the corner. Some people asked me whether there was any discrimination in New York City, I don’t think so, the only discriminated human being by the public is Mr. Bush. When mentioning him, every teacher will show a little bit of disdain, dislike and complain. After the teacher in the morning class complained, the teacher in the afternoon class mentioned this again as they had an agreement before. At that time she was telling a joke, and she told us what a joke should be; For example, A walk by somebody like this is a joke, and a matter handled by somebody like this is a joke ......But, Mr. Bush walks from here - - just a simple walk, is a joke itself......” So, we can see that Mr. Bush is really disliked in New York...... nobody here seems to like him......
I am not quite sure whether I make it clear or not...... I suddenly feel that I am a joke myself, a doofus and stupid student ......I am exhausted! I can’t understand!! Too many new words!!!!!

Some pictures of mine were supposed to be taken for one of my friends' magazine this afternoon. At the beginning, they made me a ponytail hairstyle, which was totally denied by me. Then, there came a compromised way, a bird’s-nests’ style, sort of like checkers. Looked a little strange, but the photographer said it was very good, and then it was good. Everything must have some sort of moderate compromises; I try to learn not to be so tenacious.
There is huge difference among everybody about whether looking good or not, and I frequently change my views recently. Attractive, unattractive, attractive, and then unattractive.
Somebody ate a whole bucket of ice cream by herself. That was ridiculous, my windpipe cannot hand that well, so I can only look at it, I am so unhappy.
During today’s interview, I talked too much again, mainly because the female reporter looked kind to me. However, the most important reason was that she had four Garfield; one of them looks almost identical to my WeiBoEr, so I felt that she was so friendly to me.
I will have lots of thing to do and lots of things to buy tomorrow. I haven’t watched a movie for a long time, so I bought Sofia Coppola’s new movie, "Marie-Antoinette". I plan to watch it before I go to bed.

A sailing ship, a long coastline, an old lottery-ticket seller and I (three pictures)
I already watched five participants’ movies. Among those, there is a very attractive movie from Mexico, a teen movie, in which there is a super beautiful girl. I felt totally relaxed after good movies. I will talk about another intractable movie later, about two of my most intractable movie-watching experiences......
Lazy. Took too many pictures, please allow me to post them out little by little. Many Chinese directors arrived in Greece last night. As I was told today that BrotherBai, XiaoWu and DaMingChen would be here later, so many people to hang out with. And I am very busy. So, if I show up less, please don't worry.

Arrived in Hong Kong yesterday, I had some problems with the visa, so I was hold by immigration office in the airport for around two hours ......I was lucky that I brought a book. When Miss. Boxue and rest of people were trying to find a solution for the situation, I forced myself to divert my attention. I carefully read a very important article about the 1891 immigration problem in New Orleans and the jury; I succeeded in shifting my attention. And with the help of some extreme powerful friends, I finally entered Hong Kong, and was not repatriated.
Arrived in Hong Kong again, and I stayed in the same room. I will dub for "Behind the Sin" tonight and feel curious. I do not know what the film is going be after the edit. Thinking of WeiBoer now, I have no idea whether that super lazy guy will miss me or not....
I will spend a little time roaming about the streets before the work.

Today, "Dream may come true” had its virgin show at the Beijing University on its college itineracy.
When Beijing University is mentioned, there is always a slogan reflected in my head, which Comrade Gao Xiaosong always jokes with, “The Beijing University is raised by the people”. There are always several persons graduated from Beijing University around me, such as Lao Qian, who always has a simple and honest smile on his face. Of course, this statement can be used for any universities, for example, “The Tsinghua University is raised by the people…” At that time, these comrades born in the later 60's were in the flower of their youth. When they mentioned themselves at that time, they all had a manner like “Talking and laughing at the strong opponent, destroyed into dust just a moment.” Now, they are all public celebrities as well as important members of companies, it is said some of them even used to be members of the gangland. Actually, we do not really belong to the same generation. When they were hot-blooded youth, we were still in the middle school fighting for the entrance exams to the high school. We belonged to the group which they refused to play with....
Arrived Beijing University again and found that the people under the stage were even younger. A freshman, who was from Wuhan, just asked Aunt Xu how to deal with the feelings of the defeat of dreams and desperations. I smiled: Where did the desperations come from? You just passed the entrance examination to Beijing University, you should be high-spirited, moreover, everything just started from now, it was too early to say anything ......However, who said that the young people could not be filled with disconsolateness? Everybody came over from the age free of worries, and everybody wanted to level up. No matter how the question is asked again and again, you have to walk first to determine that it is a broad highway or a single-plank bridge. Is it the right road? Walk first then make the decision later. “We” are still young, get plenty of the time.
Presented a movie and expressed some feelings. Actually, there is no way to make the expression_r clearly in a conference which has a couple of thousand people in.

The idol told me that he had discovered some things a couple of days ago, he kept talking with me for more than an hour, about energy, conservation, information, omniscience, quality, speed and so on. And he also mentioned various religious issues. I didn’t quite understand him, so I used doubtful statements, such as “ha ha…” and “Really?” to respond him. Finally, the idol found out that I was only sort of convinced, and then he said something that I definitely understood, “Why do you always think the truth is grasped by someone you do not know and living far away from you......”
Yeah, probably, that is the thought in the bottom of my heart......and looks like this is not right.
I didn’t feel well recently, things like catching a cold, headache, rhinitis and sneezing crazily all happened to me. And during these two days, my cervical vertebra hurt again. I felt giddy and could not bestir myself to do anything. Many things were postponed again and again, and my back hurt a lot when I sat in front of the computer. But I don’t think it is time for me to retire yet......
Tomorrow, “Curiosity killed the cat”, a movie directed by one of my good friends, Zhang Yibai, will be presented for the friends only. When I come back, I will share what I have seen with everybody.

My best friend wants to make an important change in her life. I also frequently think about changes in my life. When I look back to most of the things that I have done, I find out there are things that should be done and I have interest in, then there are things I must force myself to do, and I wonder why I should do them at all.
If you worry too much about the details of the work, it may make you lose the passions that you have when you start, but if you do not deal with the trivia of the work, you will never successfully finish it. This is a contradiction overall.
No occupation is perfect. There are always some stages that make it very hard to continue. Afterwards, you would probably sit at your home depressed and think why such things happen to you? I never want to meet those things again. You may then begin to have some suspicions about the career itself.
Perhaps, this is because of my frailty, or perhaps it is because I am stupid - - there must be a better way somehow.
This is something one has to overcome. It is not easy to bypass or just give up. Overall, the hardest part is to convince yourself during such times. The prior thoughts are very hard to change, and furthermore it is hard to overstep the weakness in your disposition. The qualitative change caused by quantitative change, which is due to the accumulation of knowledge in various aspects, is not that easy. And whether to understand the choices or not is totally determined by a person's inner quality.
I study every day and I think every day, and I believe that the quantitative change will eventually cause the qualitative change.
There should be moments like this, in which you can handle everything with ease and enjoy everything naturally. The most important thing is that you will love every detail from the bottom of your heart.

Running water is never stale and a door-hinge never gets worm-eaten
Had a fever; all I did today were to take some medicine, read some books and try to fall asleep, expect going to the company once for a discussion. The guy upstairs seemed to leave the tap on, the noise of the running water woke me up a couple of times, I even thought that it was me who left the tap on, so I got out of bed to turn it off.
My fever was gone, but my throat still hurt a lot, I thought it was because the inflammation was not completely reduced yet. Anyway, I am ready for a drip if it still continues like this......And I can’t sleep anymore today, because I have to take some pictures for a magazine. (I made the promise a long time ago, so cannot say no.)
The website (www.kaila.com.cn) is always under the attack now, almost being attacked every day, it is said that the attacking source was already located the day before yesterday. Everybody says that tall trees catch much wind, but it looks like that small trees catch a lot of wind too, well, the wind does not have too much to do.
I will leave for Hong Kong to act again. I wish that I can get over my cold as soon as possible. But it is probably a good thing because I have to look haggard when acting in the later scenarios; I even don’t need to put on my make - up…
I will stop my journal here today. The proverb says that “Running water does not get stale and a door-hinge is never worm-eaten”…

Go home, sleep, eat and commune
I didn’t feel like tired when acting, but I was really exhausted when taking plane home, mainly because we have too much luggage ......Little Jiajia and I looked like two refugees when we came back with ashen faces.
I went to my grandmother’s house first and had a meal there, then immediately fell asleep when I got to my home, the pillows in my home are much more comfortable compared to those in the hotel. A little friend wants to have a talk with me and I also need to talk with somebody, so I am leaving for a talk now.
