I'm in Taipei now, stay in a hostel.
And writing my daily by my new phone. Compare to using PC, it's easier because of the auto input.
Trying to list everything I did below.
I got up early for a eikaiwa lesson, the teacher is a Filipino, we read an article which is a Japanese curator's biography.(?)
Before the lesson,I went to my atelier as usual. Although it was short time,I had to go there for spread some linseed oil to oil paints which I squeezed yesterday and wrap it without air.
After lesson, I had lunch in a Italian restaurant with my mom and her friends.
Finished lunch, my mom's friends gave me a ride to chaiyi high speed train station.
Arrived in Taipei, I went to visit my grandma first, talked with her about TV news and the upcoming president election in Taiwanese. Than I knew she didn't change her household registration form Changhua to Taipei,this thing made her did not vote recent years (I surmised above 25 years), but it also made her got benefits. The farmers' insurance in Changhua is higher than in Taipei.
My grandma lived with my uncle's family. My uncle's business is wine merchant. So we were in his wine shop. While we were talking, my grandma noticed a old lady passed by outside. Looked tired. My grandma invited old lady have a sit on outside chair and had a short talk with old lady. My grandma had a call to the old lady's family and telled them the old lady need some one to pick her home and carry something she just bought.
During the waiting for old lady's family, grandma gave old lady a cup of water. My uncle came home, and sand me to Ximen Mateo by scooter. I'm appreciated that he did for me.
Because before I arrived grandma's home, I passed by Longshan Temple Taipei Metro station, there were 3 young people stood out of ticket gate, one girl stick her middle finger up at me for no reason and laughed.
I ignored them of course. I didn't want to see them again. Such a Extremely rude person.
I think people in Tokyo are unfeeling, but Taiwanese are vulgar..... I always feel unpleasant when I sew much litter on the road, and I didn't nothing, maybe have to start to do something.
Get back to the girl, I think the behavior made her worse than homeless. Hope she could find the truth of her life to make her life more interesting. (I believed she will be happy that so much words in my daily to describe what she did today)
I met my friend in Ximenting at 17:15. And went to the famous Ximen red building. Many gay bars are outside of the building according my friend said.
I ate Singaporean chicken noodle in ximenting. And we listened a lecture about gender issue in genre fiction together. quite difficult. Talked about some professional words in literature. I believed my parents have no idea about Cthulhu. The professor introduced many horror novel. I didn't stay there until end.
I went hostel by city bus. I dare not doing anything on the way. It's easy to pass your goal. I did a ton of same things in NYC and Tokyo.
And one other English online lesson. The connection was awful, made me nervous even dropped my water bottle on floor and it broken. I throw it and had last 13 mins lesson.
The teacher read my daily and said my life is busy." It's busy but nothing important"I replied.
I spent 2 hour more to write dailys recently instead of watching Netflix before sleeping.
