站在結尾的我回頭望,這趟義大利實習之旅,五個月,看似短的時間,卻讓我遇見更好的自己。

在台灣,即便大學課程都是學生自主安排,但因為學分的壓力,老實說並沒有許多自由時間。但在義大利並不需要把工作帶回家,下班之後會有許多屬於自己的時間。在享受更多自由的同時,我需要更自主去安排時間跟行程,學會去調配工作、學習,以及各種瑣事日常各自的時間,充分利用我的每一天。也因為生活上沒有太多壓力,我可以去審視及思考自己對於事情的看法以及對於未來的規劃,於是發現了許多曾習以為常,但在他人眼中很特別的自我特質。自己在心裡也沉澱很多,原本對於未來職場的迷惘以及求好心切的心情,也慢慢在這半年調適好。

在義大利,大家都有不一樣的面孔、不一樣的風格,不像我們有個比較一致的審美觀,在這裡,只要你有自信,你就很美。沒有一定的標準,讓大家更自在地把自己打扮成喜歡的樣子,而不是大眾喜愛的形式,我很喜歡這樣的氛圍跟態度。

對於我而言,跟六位原先不熟的人一起生活,真的是很特別的體驗。你可以從其他人的眼裡,發現自己的優缺點,也能從談話以及遇到困難的處理態度,發現明明是同樣國家的人卻也有著非常不一樣的生活態度跟習慣。同時也在看到人際關係的摩擦時,能去自我反省自己欠缺的能力。我們需要學會溝通,去包容彼此的生活習慣,還有尊重不同的意見,努力去學會用對方能接受的方式表達自己的意見。在義大利的家中,由於本來就有烹飪能力,我主要擔任廚師的工作。第一次下廚煮包含自己,七個人的飯菜,一開始真的壓力很大。因為我們都是學生,沒有太多的經濟能力,我學會精準地控制預算,甚至得在營養之間做到平衡,試著讓挑食的夥伴吃下他們不喜歡吃的東西。

這半年的體驗真的很特別,遇到了許多人許多事,離開了熟悉的環境,學習了新的語言,了解了不一樣的文化。在能力上跟心靈上都有許多成長,覺得很充實。義大利人很懂得享受人生,他們讓我學會,人生不只是工作或學習,享受生活也是很重要的事。我把曾因為學習而犧牲的「閱讀」的習慣撿了回來,並試著著空出時間跟自己對話,傾聽自己的內心,不被物質取代,成為茫茫人海中的一人,我的心靈有了很大的轉換。驀然回首,我在義大利遇見更好的自己,也把她給帶了回來台灣,繼續我的人生。

 

I meet a better myself in Italy

Standing at the end, I looked back. This trip to Italy for five months seemed like a short period, but it made me meet myself better.

In Taiwan, even though university courses are arranged by students on their own,due to the pressure of credits, honestly there is not much free time. But in Italy it is not necessary to take the work home, there will be a lot of time after work. While enjoying more freedom, I need to be more autonomous in arranging time and schedules, learning to arrange work, study, and daily time for various trivial matters, making full use of my day. Also because there is not much pressure in life, I can examine and think about my views on things and plans, so I found a lot of self traits that I was used to, but in the eyes
of others. I have also accumulated a lot in my heart. The original puzzlement about the future workplace and the eagerness to seek good things gradually adjusted in this half year.

In Italy, everyone has different faces and different styles. Unlike us, we have a more consistent aesthetic view. Here, as long as you have confidence, you are beautiful. There is no certain standard to make everyone more comfortable to dress themselves in a favorite way, instead of the popular form. I like this atmosphere and attitude very much. 

For me, living with six previously unfamiliar people is a special experience. From the eyes of other people, you can find your strengths and weaknesses, and from the conversation and the attitude of dealing with difficulties, you can find that people from the same country have very different attitudes and habits. At the same time, when I see the friction in interpersonal relationships, I can reflect on the ability I lack. We need to learn to communicate, tolerate each other's habits, and to respect different opinions, and strive to learn to express our opinions in a way that the other party can accept. In my home in Italy, because I have cooking ability, I mainly work as a chef. The first time I cook for seven people, including myself, is stressful at first. Because we are all students and don't have much financial ability, I learned to control the budget accurately, and
even had to balance nutrition. I tried to let picky eaters eat what they didn't like. 

This half-year experience was really special. I encountered many people and many things. I left the familiar environment, learned a new language, and learned about a different culture. There are many growths in ability and soul, and I feel very fulfilled. Italians know how to enjoy life. They taught me that life is not just work or study. It is also important to enjoy life. I picked up the habit of "reading" that was sacrificed for study, and tried to make time to talk to myself, listening to my heart, not being replaced by matter, and becoming a person in a vast sea of people. Great conversion. Looking back, I met a better myself in Italy and brought her back to Taiwan to continue my life.
