親愛的珍妮佛,

去年12月,在i English當了一次的host之後,已經抖過了一次。除了在陌生人面前講話就沒自信之外,硬著頭皮講Broken English也是很抖的原因。不過,也因為這樣的機會,社友們開始比較認識我。於是,社長希望我可以給一個小演講,時間約二十分鐘,內容自定。在我歪頭想想的時候,他說,那就來個1/4日吧! 深呼吸之後,我就說,好吧!

我回頭去翻了一些資料,想說來講講我做過的project好了。一個星期前就開始想,重新看過以前的資料,也許是有一點時間距離了,對它的感覺又不太相同。一來覺得當時也蠻有勇氣,二來是有一些可以做得更好的。那段時間,自己不斷教自己的過程很有趣,不過,有些可惜的是,心情不好也浪費了一些好時光就是了。

賈伯斯說的回頭看時,才會明白生命中的點點滴滴是如何串聯出意義的。我在準備這個演講時,也有相似的感受。

昨天要報告前二個小時,我竟然出現「不想出席」的念頭,開始一連串的自我否定,內容無趣、緊張到語無倫次.....恐慌。最後,想到我失去了最後一次在學校口頭報告的機會,現在是我彌補這個缺憾的時刻,而我也不是毫無準備,再怎麼樣這一個小時的緊張都會過去。而且,2011年1月4日是我到達倫敦的日子,三年之後,這也算是一個很好的紀念。

於是,穿上大衣,拿著悠遊卡,我就衝出去搭車了。

幸好趕得及,在慢慢播放投影片中,抖抖抖地講完了。最後完成Q&A之後,我回到位子上,我仔細才看到社友們微笑著看著我,提出一些有趣的問題,結果出乎預期地好。有的人喜歡我所製作的投影片,除了視覺感受很舒服,也讓他覺得很能進入主題,也有人喜歡我project裡設計的小道具,認為可以在台灣也製作相同/類似的project,甚至相關的工作都可以嘗試。也有人因此,想起了他們在英國讀書生活,與指導教授、當地人交手的記憶,感覺特別興奮。

2014年的第一po,竟然是抖抖抖開場。

不過,在回家的路上,我真的好開心自己做了這麼一件事。

This is my first article this year, which is about my unforgettable speech in public.

On 4th of January in 2014, I delivered a talk for iEnglish members. This talk was arranged by the presidents of iEnglish last year. After promising to deliver this talk, I started to figure out a interesting topic which I was able to offer. So, I determined to showcase my projects done in London 2011-2012. It was quite a journey to review all photos and documents, which brought me back to sliver memory i enjoyed. Finally, the storyline gradually had been drawn down. The process of retrospection made me realized the meaning behind the connection with dots in my life. 

Two hours before my show time, extreme scarceness suddenly hit me severely, even I had done my preparation for this talk. Struggling for a while,  I barely went there, and deliver it, with trembling voice. Surprisely, I was given some compliments and comments by new and old friends. For me, final project was only an experiment design project regarding  historic Antiques Market in regenerated area.  However, they called it as a cultural campaign, which sounded so powerful and influent. Anyway, I was so delighted that this talk had been done well with my broken English. haha. 

Furthermore, it also marked the third annuversary of the first landing in London. :)

Definitely, it was a good start to my 2014. I am sure of it!
