What's Going On 你最近怎麼樣?


So this week I was going to write about snakes (again).  But since that involves a lot of research, and I'm really tired, I think I'll wait until next week to write it.  Or maybe the week after.  Or maybe I won't do it at all.  Who knows?  原本這星期我還要再一次寫關於蛇的文章.  可是寫那種文章要參考很多本書和網站, 而我現在很累了, 所以我下星期再寫吧!.  還是下下星期!  也許我最後決定不再寫了.  誰知道?

And why am I tired?  Mostly because I had only one day - Sunday - off last week, and I was really busy.  The first week of every semester is always busier for me.  By June my job is usually VERY easy, but in February there's more to do.  我怎麼那麼累呢?  大部分是因為上星期只放一天假.  而且開學的第一周我都比較忙.  二月要做的事情比較多, 六月的時候我就比較輕鬆. 

Add to this the fact that I'm not quite (re)adjusted to our school schedule yet.  I spent most of winter vacation waking up after 9 or 10, and waking up at 6:30 has been brutal.  In a perfect world, everyone would be able to get out of bed whenever they feel like it.  In a perfect world, there would be no alarm clocks.  加上我還不習慣學校的作息.  寒假時我都是9, 10點以後起床, 所以現在早上6:30起床是很困難的事情.  在完美的世界裡, 人人可以隨意幾點起床.  在完美的世界裡不會有鬧鐘.


In other "news," I'll be joining the Tainan Old Capital Marathon next month.  This will be my third time.  I haven't quite gotten enough training in, but I think I should do alright.  I'm running 20 km a week now, and running it pretty fast besides.  其他的消息?  我下個月要參加台南的古都馬拉松.  這是我第三次參加.  我覺得我的訓練不夠, 但是應該可以表現得不錯.  我最近每周跑20公里, 也跑得比較快.

My only real obstacle is the number of people joining that race.  Last time I checked, 14,000 people were signed up for the marathon, half marathon, 10 km and 5 km, and some of the roads through Tainan are very narrow.  I'll probably spend a lot of that race waiting (impatiently) for other people to get out of my way.  我最大的問題就是參加比賽的選手人數.  我上次看的時候共有一萬四千個人要參加全馬, 半馬, 10公里, 跟5公里的比賽.  台南有些路很小.  很可能跑的時候會有很多人檔在我的前面.

Oh, and the half-marathon I'm joining also gives me the chance to enjoy that "PM2.5 air" that everyone's talking about.  Air quality on the west coast of Taiwan is very low.  我要參加的半馬拉松也會讓我有機會享受到大家講的PM2.5空氣.  台灣西部的空氣品質很差.

Aside from the above, there's not much to say.  The weather's getting warmer (thank God), I'm probably drinking too much coffee, and a three-day weekend is coming soon.  Oh yeah!  除了上面寫的那些事情之外, 好像也沒什麼要說的了.  天氣越來越暖和, 我大概喝太多咖啡了, 三天連假也快到了.  不錯喔!
