Minquan is a glorified high school. Of course you hate it and won't learn anything there.
Anyone who goes to Taoyuan to get out of Taipei and clear their head obviously doesn't know what to do in Taiwan.mike029 wrote:I've been here 3 years and I totally feel this way. I'm also a very sociable person and love to go out, but these last 6 months I've been so out of it. I thought I was just depressed being here, so over CNY I went on this extravagant unplanned trip all over the place for 2 months. Came back here and it's back to being judgmental of everyone because everyone besides me sucks and just watching reruns of NCIS on Channel 74 because apparently that's the only show that's on. Ever.
I have unfulfilling days at a school where I feel retarded attending. I'm trying to make my business grow but there's nobody competent that can help me do the menial stuff and I'm being overloaded with work (which I guess is good). I didn't even finish my own company's website yet...hung up on graphics ATM. I stay up until 4AM like right now because I'm also working on my own secret massive project, but I have to do crap for clients too that doesn't require my brain power, just my time...the worst part is that I literally feel like I'm wasting time at school. But! I have to graduate because even though I want my own success, I still need a degree at least to SPONSOR MY OWN FRIGGIN VISA. I'm 23 and am a sophomore in Uni. My situation at MCU is pretty favorable right now (get $25k a month from the government and an American accredited program), but I literally feel like being there is killing me. We have a "multimedia" class where we make animations by drawing pics in MS Paint then putting them in a PPT. Last week we had to "embed a video in a web page", and we had 4 hours to do it, IN A GROUP. My group waited for me because they knew I could just do it quickly. I showed up an hour late, got my grade docked for the day because I missed an hour, and then I "embedded a video in a web page" in 10 seconds by copy pasting youtube embed code and changing the size. He wouldn't let me leave early because it's 丟臉 for the other students that I can do it so quickly. So, I had to sit there for another 3 hours and 50 minutes.
You go outside and try to drive home where you witness an accident where nobody is helping, then a 7-11 delivery truck passes you on the left so when he gets in front of you he can just pull over, 4 busses almost side-swipe you, and then you get to the restaurant to buy some dinner and you realize, "oh, it's just noodles with different sauce on it, my bad, with this exotic of a name that doesn't make any sense, I was under the impression that it would be something new to try", then it starts pouring on you the last 20 seconds before you get home.
I like to get out of Taipei once every 2-3 weeks just to clear my head. Yesterday morning, the weather was so nice I thought I would drive to Taimall, even though I hate that mall, but I couldn't think of any other reason to go to Taoyuan. After I bought a new shirt and some shoes (finally had my size), I go out to find...RAIN. I got stuck in Taoyuan for 5 hours before it stopped raining and I felt like I could drive home. Worst 5 hours ever. I sat in a wangka. There was no way I was going to leave my scoot scoot and bus it back...that would mean I would have to go back to Taoyuan to get my scooter. *insert puking smilie*
I need to sleep now, got statistics at 9AM! EVEN THOUGH I ALREADY TOOK 2 SEMESTERS OF STATISTICS AT Zheng-Da THEY WOULDN'T TAKE MY CREDITS. I'm pretty sure Zheng-Da's statistics class is better than yours, Mingchuan. Whatever, I'm using my same final project. Let's not forget PE at 1PM! And this Friday is a mandatory assembly thing where we have to listen to some girl give a presentation about her "international volunteer experience", whatever the fuck that means. Good job, you got to visit starving kids in Africa and share Jesus' love with them. Why didn't you just take the plane ticket money and donate it you self-righteous bitch? Don't go to the assembly, you get "2 conduct score demerits" (yes, we have a conduct grade) and have to do 8 hours of community service or something.
I need to sleep well and get ready for my awful tomorrow. When it will probably rain, again.
Feiren, I think Mike029 is a kid, around 20 years old. He's a bright young guy. He'll figure it out at some point.
