24 穆芹 / 2003年的日記 / 26歲 / 美術行政官員 從2002年9月到2003年12月的這一年半是我曾經待在別的國家時間最長的 一次。大約有一半的時間我在美國,這段時間記錄了很多事情也包括了一 些無聊的事比方說去學校註冊,而現在這變成一段對我很重要的回憶,也是 我最珍惜的事,更沒有人可以偷走它,因為它都在我的腦中。 Chin Mu 是台北藝術村的活動企劃。我覺得她是一個很有自己想法的人,她 之前到美國去也是自己作決定的。在台灣,一般還沒結婚的人都會跟自己 父母同住,除非是要到外地謀生才會搬出去。然而,為了享受獨立生活的感 覺,她還是自己搬出來住,僅管她母親就住在她家附近。
Chin Mu / Diary 2003 / Age 26 / Arts Administrator This is the one and half year calendar from year 2002 September until 2003 December. That is the longest time I’ve been staying in another country. It is the ﬁrst half of the time I spent in the US. This records many things even those boring schedules like when I went to register at school. Now it becomes a kind of memory that is very important to me. It is the thing I cherish the most. Nobody else can steal it away from me because it’s all here, it’s in my brain. Chin Mu is one of the Program Administrators at Taipei Artists Village. She is dedicated and hardworking in her work. She has had always a mind of her own, even before she went to spend time in the U.S. It is usual in Taiwan for unmarried children to live with their parents, unless they work in a different city from where their parents live. She enjoys living alone and likes the feeling of being independent, even though her mother lives only 30 minutes away from her.
