【潔西家】照片日記 triple stimulus vouchers 振興三倍卷

昨天寫的英文日記,太累了,所以只發在臉書上,要不要做影片呢?很猶豫,很猶豫, 還是做了。想做就做吧!

最近早上都起不來,一直賴床,什麼事都不想做,很沒有人生意義地過日子,進入了憂鬱期,不趕快拉上來的話,會越來越嚴重。想法都很負面,每天都很懶散,大家都會賴床,大家都會有負面想法,這樣就憂鬱症嗎?當然不是,潔西已經憂鬱二十年了,所以對自己的狀況也很清楚。

想一想,憂鬱症的人還蠻可憐的,真的很容易就被冠上懶惰的惡名,但是就是一個很像懶惰的病,什麼事都不想做,很累恨累,一直想躺在床上,然後很負面的想法一直冒出來,很黑暗的,很難擺脫掉的。

先要認清楚自己,知道自己是什麼樣的人,然後去跟他奮鬥,醫生曾經跟潔西說過,你這個病不會好,而且年紀越大會越嚴重,不愧是了解潔西的醫生啊!憂鬱症不是不會好,每個人都不同,環境,朋友等等的關係,幸運的人是可以完全治癒的喔。

潔西最近狀況不好也不是沒有原因,開不了班,沒有新生,老弟得癌症,做的影片觀看的人數一樣不多,臉書也是觸及率低,每次看臉書專頁都是誰誰誰按你的文讚,邀請他來按你的專頁讚的相同的通知,沒有人留言,沒有人問問題,日復一日的覺得自己的生活生命真的沒有什麼太大的意義。

沒有什麼朋友,年輕的時候朋友不少,還被問過說你怎麼會有那麼多朋友,年紀大的,朋友的性質變得很不同,前些日子朋友一起出去,他們聊孩子跟老公,潔西一句話都插不進去。大家有孩子有家庭,要約一起出去也真的不容易,只能很偶爾的出來吃個飯,走走,當然不是不開心的,人生要求太多的人一定不會快樂的,對於現有的感到滿足的話會快樂許多,但是這樣的人也就沒有往前衝的動力,潔西是在介於對現狀滿足與不滿間掙扎吧?不滿都是感覺又不知道該如何突破是最難的,現狀又隨著年紀越來越大,只會越來越困難。

看到佐野洋子,就是畫「活了一百萬次的貓」的插畫家,所寫的「我可不這麼想」,佐野洋子的中年回望,裡面有寫到女性友人的可貴。

「她高中時代的女性友人還制定了輪流探病表,每個人每週要來探望她兩次。我們都很窮,她一定和我一樣沒什麼積蓄。但就算存了幾千萬,也不如有很多女性友人可以在你出事時緊緊握著你的手,這比擁有鉅額存款更令人安心。」

有這樣的朋友,真好!

繼續備課去,今天星期五了,好快,大家週末愉快!

 

英文日記又來了,隨便寫幾句中文,翻譯成英文突然變成好長一串喔!果然潔西是不能當翻譯的啊!不是逐字逐句翻譯,只是講大意,明天有空的話再來錄音!

前幾天才領振興卷,被問到為什麼不早領,因為沒有特別想買的東西。前兩天買口罩,一盒三百五,只有兩百元的現金,問說可不可以刷卡,店員看到潔西手上剛領的振興卷說我們有收振興卷喔。

但是當然不找零,潔西想想不對,這樣要付一百五現金,這樣就不夠買便當了,所以還是刷卡。今天終於用到了。

剛剛在定食八有被振興優惠到,本來不知道用振興卷有優惠,點了四百三,結帳時店員說用振興卷200元可以點250的食物,所以又加點一堆,兩張卷點了兩份套餐,飲料,雞翅,豆腐,青菜,飽到吃不下。吃得飽飽,心情好好

下面是改成英文的日記

晚安晚安!

Thursday, August 13th, 2020

I went to the post office to pick up the triple stimulus vouchers a few days ago. I paid NT$1,000 for the vouchers, which are worth NT$3,000.

After that, I went to a drugstore to buy masks with my NHI card (National Health Insurance card). I asked the clerk if they had a whole box of masks because I wanted to get a box but couldn’t find it anywhere. She told me there was one box left and it cost NT$350. Lucky me! While I was paying, I found out that I had only two hundred dollars cash with me. I asked her if I could pay with my credit card, and she saw the vouchers that I was holding. She told me that I could pay with the vouchers. They do not give you back the change for the vouchers, so I had to pay a $200 voucher and NT$150. In the end, I paid with the credit card because I realized that if I had paid with the voucher and cash, then I would have had only NT$50 left, which was not enough to buy my lunch.

Today, finally I got a chance to use the vouchers. My class finished early today, so I went to Teishoku 8 to have dinner. I wanted to pay with two two-hundred-dollar vouchers and $30 cash, but I was told that we could order $250 worth of food with a $200 voucher. We were going to pay $430, but we ended up paying $420 for $520 worth of food. The math is so complicated here, so forgive me if I wrote something wrong. Anyway, we ordered two sets of meals, some chicken wings, fried tofu, greens, and a drink. We were so full that we couldn’t finish everything. I think I made good use of the vouchers.

My friend asked me why I waited so long to pick up the vouchers, and I said that there was not anything particular I wanted to buy. She told me that I would find ways to spend them easily after I got them and she was totally right!
