Rob Solo at HIPS

Last Saturday we had a great time dancing to the music of DJ Rob Solo at HIPS in Taipei. Rob is a fantastic DJ who know how to get the party going and the crowd dancing. Moreover, Solo is part of the old-school Ottawa crew and is someone that I’ve know for years. He has been living in Taiwan for over four years now and is a successful DJ with his Spaceballers productions crew.  Here are my photos from the night….

    i love the first shot. the green smoky lights are delicious. it looks like a really cool club… i’m very partial to disco balls.

    thank you so much for the fb flower. it looks so beautiful on my wall. as always your comment has put a smile on my face! i’ve been feeling overwhelmed lately. i am trying to learn how to edit video this week and although i’ve gotten the “hang” of it, i still scream at the top of my lungs fairly often… arghhh!!! when i can’t do something perfectly the first time i get very frustrated. then i often feel disappointed in myself. then i get sad and don’t want to do it anymore.

    so, yes i can relate to your intensive mandarin classes. i do love learning languages and have learnt my fair share of them, but it was never easy. give yourself time. the current literature i read (part of my masters research) on learning a second language says that it is important to have a “silent period” (a time when you are just listening to the language and observing) before you start to speak the language. Meaning… as adults we are often forced to speak at a level that we are not comfortable with too soon. This affects our “ego”. And when you don’t feel confident your ability to speak suffers.

    The point I am trying to make in this rambling is that your confidence level plays a role in learning a language. if you are feeling really overwhelmed, it might help to take your learning outside of the classroom in a casual setting where you can observe the language, but where you do not feel pressured to speak with grammatical accuracy. Or watch a Mandarin movie and just absorb the language. Even if you don’t feel like you are actively learning you are!

    i hope this helps… convoluted as it was!!??
