開幕誌喜

今天和新朋友Lulu, Ariel 吃飯聊天……五小時!真的很能聊……

在聊天的過程中,朋友提到了“部落格”,其實一直有想將部落格重新開張,但是臉書的便利一直讓這事延宕著……

朋友提到了,臉書無法搜尋,容易被洗版……;確實如此,最近常回來這找孩子們的照片,因此,從新開張吧!(鞭炮放……)

蝦咪魂

Posted by Ava Stewart on Wednesday Nov 2, 2011 Under News 好消息

前陣子…

我跟木工說: 這裡我想做一朵雲

木工愣了三秒–傻笑了一下–右邊嘴角微微上揚的回: 蝦咪魂?

我說: 雲~~天空的雲阿!

木工說: 齁~魂喔~阿~怎麼做?

我們就靜靜的默視對方好一會

後來經過反覆的討論及畫圖示意後,我的到我的三朵”魂” 🙂

Well, 雖然不盡人意,甚至有點差強人意…但我有我的”魂”了

這陣子,開始與作招牌的老闆討論

愛娃:這個喔就4尺6尺…

老闆:恩 恩,可以.喔

愛娃: 這裡一個熊的頭

老闆: 蝦咪?

愛娃: 黑阿~熊ㄟ頭阿

老闆: 喔~ㄚㄟ怎麼奏阿? 不行喔!

愛娃:這樣阿, 那房子可以嗎?

老闆:黃子喔~ 恩 ~黃子”四四角角”可以!

愛娃: 要有煙囪喔!

老闆: 黑不行啦,小姐! 太難了啦.

愛娃: @@ 沒有煙囪的我”唔愛”啦!

於是我和招牌老闆也要來場密集的交流

希望老闆們交流時不會討論到”故事屋那個奇怪的老師”

期待我的”扛棒”

愛娃碎念文

Posted by Ava Stewart on Monday Aug 22, 2011 Under Feelings 愛娃心聲, News 好消息, Uncategorized

就在一片轟隆~轟隆聲中,暑假就將近尾聲了. 期間愛娃也呈現半消失的狀態,讓我的好友米雪找不到人, 從今天開始要好好的回來爬文和補文囉!

2011暑假,專業的愛娃老師和Peter籌辦了Double C 夏令營, 當然在此時晚間的故事課程和其他課程也都持續進行中,換句話說,我們夫妻倆每天早上八點出門後就要到晚上九點半才能再次踏入家門,夏令營第一星期後,我們都成了”大貓熊”了,有一天我半癱在沙發上告訴Peter: 要記得檢查門窗,我要睡了….愛娃…我就發出響亮的打呼聲了,這對經常性失眠的我而言真是人生難得的回憶阿.幸好隨著時間我們找到了合適的步調,一切也都順利地進行至今.也很榮幸的能夠讓孩子們有個快樂而不同的暑假.

暑假過後,愛娃也接了許多不同的挑戰,深呼吸~and go! 目前還不能公開地和大家分享,因為這些工作都是Ava人生中的Dream work 或是To Do List中的待完成事項,就讓Ava認真努力的把他們做好再與大家分享囉!

由於網站出現了些不知名的問題,而網站維修員”史都華先生”還沒空幫我看所以沒辦法放上任何照片,只好先寫寫紀事囉!

  1. Peter正式回歸故事屋一同打拼,為我分擔了不少課程.我們也將努力的盡最大努力挪出時間陪孩子們.
  2. Christoper 回學校上學囉.很愛他的新老師,學了很多新語詞,例如:地球,冰原…但念起來卻帶外省腔.
  3. Nana升大班囉,這個月配合學校課程將腳踏車輔助輪拿掉,已經會騎兩輪的腳踏車囉.
  4. 暑假為期兩個月的夏令營正式結束,圓滿落幕,親愛的孩子們,我們冬令營再見囉!
  5. 九月是認真的充電,研習月.當然還要認真補文囉.
  6. 這周日我那”崙背”來低好友菲比,戴瑞克還有那帥到爆的滷蛋先生就要來故事屋玩耍囉~我真是開心到嘴都合不攏,在他們來之前我必須認真的祈禱不要被颱風破局,星期六下午更要狠狠的補眠一番.

說時遲那時快,照片功能似乎恢復了,不囉嗦…馬上再補一篇.(深夜不睡的愛娃似乎過嗨了!)

Some background information for my story can be found at the links below:

From Wikipedia:

The theme celebrates the festive spirit and worldly commotion at the Qingming Festival, rather than the holiday’s ceremonial aspects, such as tomb sweeping and prayers. The entire piece was painted in hand scroll format and the content reveals the lifestyle of all levels of the society from rich to poor as well as different economic activities in rural areas and the city. It offers glimpses of period clothing and architecture. As an artistic creation, the piece has been revered and court artists of subsequent dynasties have made several re-interpretive replicas. The painting is also known for its geometrically accurate images of variety natural elements and architectures, boats and bridges, market place and stores, people and scenery. It is one of the most precious document ever survived, being a unique existing example of the traditional Chinese painting. The original painting is valued highly not only for its rich and sophisticated content derived pure aesthetics value, but also as an important evidence for study the civilization, historiography, technology development and anthropology of ancient China.

There are a lot of different chereters in the picture, and these two pictures are how the drew them.

The exhibit is very nice although Christina didn’t quite understand of the meaning of it. But I’m sure that we both the sense of the beauty of Chinese culture and enjoyed the show.

My best friend was getting married,so Christina and I took Hight Speed Rail Way to Taipei after work.

On the train Christina said she’d like to take some pictures with me. But as you can see from the photos my face was slowly blocked by Christina face.

Step By Step 1

Posted by Ava Stewart on Saturday Jun 18, 2011 Under Feelings 愛娃心聲, News 好消息

在幾經考量後,還是決定自己和各個師傅們溝通而捨棄了設計師的部分.相對之下成本當然低了點,但花費的時間和殺死的腦細胞當然也不少,所以有兩個月的時間這工程的事情一直在我的腦袋裡一直轉來轉去低,除了去IKEA晃來晃去之外,每次到家長家裡,餐廳,診所…(有沒有這麼誇張阿你)老是問人家方不方便借我拍照,拍回來後再分別找木工,水電,油漆…等專業人士洽詢我那些天方夜譚(亂七八糟)的想法成功機率和考量為何,師傅們的第一個反應通常是:…(停頓三秒)…喔…阿…啥咪?  待愛娃用極度肯定重複一次後,師傅就會用極度疑惑,眉毛幾乎黏在一起,嘴角單邊上揚的微笑問我:這樣喔????????

Anyway,在兩個月這樣來來回回的狀況下,終於…動工囉~

從教室的部分開始

I’m a Dream Girl

Posted by Ava Stewart on Friday Apr 8, 2011 Under Feelings 愛娃心聲, News 好消息, Uncategorized

看完Dream girls 好一陣子了,當然也不只看過一次.這部電影除了唱作俱佳之外也呈現了”實現夢想”的每一面,是這麼的貼近真實人性也直接的演出了人性的現實.

你的夢想…在你人生中的百分比是多少呢?

在實現夢想的路上你會面臨各種挑戰及抉擇,你會堅持不變還是隨機應變?

人性是無法掌握的,現實生活是重要的,夢想是不該受限的.

我的腦子裡充滿了幻想及夢想,而夢想昇華成理想.

隨著年齡的增長我開始能區分幻想和夢想,例如:我開始發現我和王祖賢其實不如我想像中來的神似,我那二三十位男同學絕大部分沒有暗戀我…之類的.

隨著經驗的累積我開始發現夢想也是理想,例如:22歲的我曾經在家做好豬排三明治,分送給台北公館地下道裡的流浪漢吃,我想幫助他們,我想跟他們分享,人生要如何望前邁進.大概是因為他們都用遇到怪咖的眼神看我,讓我發願我要把做三明治的力氣和精神拿來好好教育孩子們.

I like the movie “Dream Girls” very much, so of course I’ve watched it quite a few times already.

Doubtless, the film is full of beautiful songs and girls.

The most important point is that it presents so accurately how people can change or make different choices when it is about your dream, some choose to move forward without thinking about others, some choose to give up and some choose to stick with what they really believe no matter what.

How important are your dreams in your life?

In all my years I’ve learned, “you can’t predict humanity, reality is important and dreams shouldn’t be limited.”

I’ve learned how to define the difference between imagination and dreams, for example I finally realize I don’t look like Cindy Crawford as much as I thought. Also, my 20 or 30 classmates really didn’t all have a crush on me.

I’ve also learned by experience the differences between dreams and goals. For example, when I was 22 and living in Taipei, I especially made pork sandwiches to give to the homeless guy who lives in a pedestrian underpass in Taipei. I tried to show him that life is always full of love and hope, but when he looked at me, with the return of the freak girl look, I knew that I should have put more effort in education rather than making sandwiches.

Yes! I’m definitely a dream girl.

Not because I always have dreams when I sleep, good ones, bad ones…

I always believed in my dreams since I was little.

I believe that everyone should have a dream in your mind,  not necessarily with a time table or big ambition involved, but at least a dream that keeps your faith, keeps you moving forward.

I believe that dreams will always come true as long as you believe in yourself.

If you’ve been reading my blog a lot you’d know how much and how often I talk about how we should always keep our dreams in mind.

Here I am, I’m so glad to announce that one of my dreams is about to come true.

Step by step mine is about to come true, but there is never an ending for my dream.

Keep on believing, my dear friends.
