NYC story 4 Gloria Gloria Gloria

“You are not confused.” 这一句话把芥末小姐噎的说不出话来,其他人笑着解围说oh Gloria, you are so german.

我们进行了如下对话。

What is your minor field?  因为你的major和我一样。

well, i don’t know.

then, what is your major field? 我是明知故问

yes, my major field is definitely japanese art。你在搞笑,大一的本科生才会说是日本艺术。我问的是研究生级别。

i mean, modern, premodern?

well, from 1200 to present.

WHAT WTF? 天下没有任何一个大学的日本艺术史是从1200开始分类的,疯了,1200还是Heian period,疯了还是文盲?

why 1200?

well I am so confused. the HANDBOOK (哪门子的Handbook)said we are going to have, either ancient to 1200, or 1200 to present, so i am so confused.

“YOU ARE NOT CONFUSED. Japanese art history from every university is divided around 19th century, you should have known that.” 于是我是脱口而出。

脑子是芥末做的啊。Have you ever talked with the prof?

well, last year, once.

于是我确定,这人肯定一,大脑也是芥末做的。二,一边打着小算盘一边装酷。装什么装,日语水平连三年生都达不到,就敢指名道姓直呼教授不带前缀。连最基本的日本艺术史分区都不知道,就敢在我面前翘着尾巴翻着白眼游来游去,简直是当血盆大口的下酒菜。

我其实心情不好。因为我的导师在所有小的地方都同意,赞同我的想法,唯独两件大事,一个是明年去日本的事,还有一个是选GP课的事,都把我的意见否的坚决地不留任何余地。我两次尝试努力,得到的是愈发坚定的拒绝。他和我一样,都不喜欢纽约,觉得纽约agressive, rude。却依然认为我应该留在这里一年,也就意味着我还要在纽约再多留一年。

I am sick of living in new york. I SO HATE IT.

新学期伊始,我选了8门课,觉得难以呼吸。现在减少到6门,依然被所有人惊呼,Gloria, you are crazy!

即使决定放弃学术,let it go, be easy。 但是嗜血的本能还在把我往角斗场上逼。明明是鲨鱼愣要淡定做食草大鱼,Gloria, you are just being Gloria, and you are truly Gloria, crazy, sharp, and eccentric Gloria.
