（同場加映：如果太想念我的朋友，請聽《納布果》中Abigaille 懾人的場景 “Anch’io dischiuso un giorno”；精采的跑馬歌 “Salgo gia del trono” 從7’34″開始。而有聽過我手機鈴聲的，請直接跳到8’26″－應該覺得很熟悉吧 :P）

If you happen to be one of my caring friends who happen not to read English, congrads, you’re spared of the agony of reading mine.
I was feeling sentimental today towards noon, when it was around the last 7-to-8th hour. It was a bit much to pack the last several boxes in the already very ready-to-echo room. It’s true — I am finally closing down everything I have here, at least for a year.
It was too much for me to ponder upon the fact that I’m uprooting myself like this. Even before the first tear rolled down did I know that I haven’t given up much — while there’re likable things and people in my life in Taiwan, I can’t say that I love it. There’ve been nuisance, doubts and aspirations, after all. In other words, I knew that I’m doing myself a favor by doing more than “just a trip”; after all, I don’t want to wait until I survive a car accident or a brain tumor to want to finally discover all of a sudden all that “the world is my oyster” thing.
And yet the sentiments are surging again now, when it is barely 80 minutes to boarding time and after I thought I have worn myself out — I was positively yawning on the way to the airport.
I can’t to hug all my friends again and tell them a billion stories. And for now, please pray for me that I can hold back the tears and be ready to embrace many a new friend out there.
