It's rainy and cold in Birch Trail today. >< ( 2014年學姐 Alice )
In many people's opinion, they tend to feel that working and traveling would be a tiring job. For me, I won't think about that.
I admitted that I felt envied when I saw people have fun outside while I had to stay in the kitchen in the very beginning.
However, I feel happy working in the kitchen. I can dance, sing, even learn Spanish while working.
especially when others talk to me or just say "hi, Alice, how's going?" during they pass by the kitchen. It makes me feel happy.
After all, I can have fun and join others after my work.
If you are coming to work, just remember it's a part of your obligation. You can work in either good mood or bad mood. It's all depends on you. You feel bad, you still have to work. So why don't we find something interesting during working!
We come here to learn, to experience, to have fun, and to enjoy.
Keep smiling all the time!!!!!
I love my life here
BTW, I went to pub with friends in the camp last night. It was sooooo gooooood!!!
( Note: 我們營隊有個習慣： 每次遇到或聽到看到很開心的事情，我們就會說 how~
每天大家都無時無刻在how how how 哈哈哈 )
