Go-go-go Karting!!!

Two of my ‘first’s here — organizing an event here and go-karting

I am in the Sports Team of the Bureau des Eleves (students society) of the school and responsible for karting events. So after dozens of e-mails back and forth with the karting company, we finally went for our first karting event on Saturday.

我两个‘第一次’的经验 — 在这里举办活动和参加go-kart. (我真的不知道华语叫什么)

我在学校的学生协会负责karting的活动。经过无数来回来去的e-mail之后,我们终于在星期六成功办成了第一次的karting活动。

Initially, I was a little worried if I could handle it, being a foreigner who speaks ‘separuh masak’ (half-cooked) french. Thankfully, the e-mails replied were always in English. After half a year here, I would say that my stereotypical opinion that the French don’t speak English is starting to change. No doubt, there are still many of them who either don’t know or are reluctant to speak in English. However, I’ve met many of them who try harder to speak in English than I do in French. Shame on me for not trying harder, this I admit.

起初我还有点担心,不知道要怎么应付,始终我在这里像个外星人又说半桶水的法语。庆幸的是他们总是用英文回复我每次写的e-mail。在这里半年了,我觉得我对法国人不说英语的主见渐渐在改变。无可否认,还有一些人可能不会或者不敢说英文。尽管如此,我在这里遇到一些比我尝试说法文还要殷勤地尝试说英文的人。所以我敢对自己说,你在这里还不用功,真丢脸!嘿嘿

Anyway, back to karting. It was really great fun! I almost forgot the satisfaction I get when I organize an event. I kind of missed being back in uni when we were so busy with different kind of events, it made life more exciting and interesting. There is always a sense of fulfillment when you’re involved in something and being occupied with an activity. It helps take away my shyness. (what? you’re shy? yeah! I am. I think I can imagine some of you rolling your eyes.)

把话题移回来。这次玩得真的很开心。我也几乎忘了我每次搞活动从中得来的满足感。有点怀念在大学时搞活动那种忙碌的滋味,令生活更有趣并刺激。投入某些事情和忙于搞活动带给人一种成就感。而且,它也帮我取走我的害羞。(什么?你也会害羞?当然会啦!哈哈!我可以想象你们受不了我的样子。)
