義遊未盡

ADI 實習生  林同學

東海大學工業設計系四年級

儘管TIP計畫已經辦了7年,但這次卻是首度與米蘭合作,雖然一開始有種被當白老鼠的感覺,許多代辦事項都無法有良好的進展,甚至還被延遲了半年,但最終還是在這個炎熱的夏季結束了。

坦白說,我的經歷應該跟大部分的實習生不太一樣,從搭上飛機的那一刻起後就都是獨自一人,沒有同伴,住宿也是自己找,實習也是到當地才跟公司有更進一步聯絡,幾乎沒有任何一刻可以依賴別人;但我相信就是因為這樣,獨立的性格也被迫要在一夕間長大。

來到義大利後,才發現公司不需要每天去報到,而學校方面也只能選一堂課,因此我有很多時間安排做其他的事,像是看設計展、旅遊、參加學校活動……等,其中旅遊佔了我最大的時間,因為不是那麼容易就可以找到同伴出遊,所以後來索性都自己出發;或許就是一個人的關係,反而更容易在異地交到朋友。旅遊聽起來似乎就只是玩樂,但因為我幾乎把旅遊當作我的正事,所以其實我是更認真的看待這件事。對於每天所發生的新事物、每天遇到的人,我都很珍惜。雖然我走過許多地方,但卻不代表我會趕行程,我喜歡一天就只待在一個地方,好好地體會景色的變化、當地人的生活、或是觀察與我同為到此處流浪的旅人。每次靜下來看看四周,就會發現許多有趣的事情正在發生。旅行看似容易但也很常會發生一些不如預期的事,像是班機嚴重的延遲、凌晨還找不到回家的路、博物館今天不開、花了超出預算的價格等等,雖然發生的當下會覺得有些懊惱或者不安,但現在看來反而都成了旅行最深刻的回憶,最能分享的特別經驗。

在實習方面,其實是有一點失望的,我認為公司其實在一開始是沒有任何安排的,後來也是在幾次溝通後,才擠出一項事情讓我做;但很可惜的是這件事情幾乎是獨自作業,而我也常常要學校公司兩邊跑,去進行工作的確認;雖然兩邊的意見有時會不太相同,導致自己不知道該如何進行下一步,但也因為這樣必須培養獨自判斷的能力。一旦提出自己的想法後,大家反而有共多空間去想像,儘管到現在還是不覺得自己在實習的任務中有什麼驚人的作為,但很感謝到ADI,與你們有著語言上的隔閡卻完全感受到你們對我的照顧。

短短的半年中,我遇到太多太多的事物了,這些回憶充斥著歡笑、甜蜜、不安、甚至還有憤怒,就算是負面情緒也是我很珍惜的一部份,就是有你們,才讓這趟旅程更加豐富,更加有意義。

 

Endless trip in ITALY

This was the seventh year of the TIP program, but this was the first time we included internships in Milan. Although there were a lot of problems at the beginning, including a delay of six months, things did end on a positive note.

My experience was not the same as other interns; I was separated from the other interns in the program from the moment I boarded the plane. WI had to find accommodation on my own and did not make contact with the company till I arrived in Milan. There was  nobody I could turn to for helpn, but I believed just because of this, I was forced to become independent.

 

The company did not require my attendance  every day, and I only took one course at the university, so I had a lot of time to do other things, such as watching exhibitions, traveling, participating in school activities and so on. Actually, I spent most of my time on traveling. It was not easy for me to find companions totravel with, so I decided to travel by myself. Perhaps because I went alone, I actually made more friends this way. Traveling sounds like fun, but I treated it as a serious matter. I cherished the new things and new people I met every day. Although I passed by many places, I did take my time at each location. I liked to explore a place at a leisurely pace in a day, observing the changing scenery, the local people, or the tourists. Every time you looked around, you would find many interesting things. Traveling seemed easy but there were also unexpected events, like serious flight delays, getting lost in the middle of the night, closure of the museum I wanted to visit, spending more than the budget, etc. Although I felt upset and uneasy in those moment, now they have become the memorable moments in my trip and the most worthy experiences to share with others.

 

The internship itself was quite challenging, because I had to take orders from both the company and my advising professor, and often both sides had different instructions, which made me unable to carry on my work at times. But due to this situation, I learned to think independently. Once I threw out a new idea, both the company and my professor would give me more freedom to determine what to work on. Even though I still think I didn’t accomplish much for the compant, I’m very grateful to ADI. Although there existed a language barrier between us, I could stillfeel your care for me.

 

In just half a year, I encountered too many things, and these memories are full of laughter, sweetness, unease, and even anger; the negative emotions are also an inseparable part of this cherished experience. Because of all the friends who helped me along the way, this trip became richer andmore meaningful to me.
