Finally, we get everything done. I have to say each of you really did a wonderful job, the Collaborative Dialogues and the poster. I like Issy’s image and color, Rob’s philosophy thinking, Shirley’s cultural coherence ( and I witnessed how much time and effort she spent in layout design ), and Eddie, your work is always so cool.
From today, we’re no longer a team. But this experience is the best teamwork ever for me, except being stressed out before the deadline, and I did stay up to finish the work. I was over confident about my health condition, I had never been ill for so long before, fortunately, I’m getting better, and we have a spare weekend now. Your guys are so sweet, keep telling me don’t worry. I know some of you don’t live here, you have to catch the train to commute. Enjoy your spare time, take a rest, and get prepared for the next reading week.
I didn’t have time to post my idea. These are the process, this is the skill I often use in my home country. When I’m with you I did these things, not because I was forced to meet the class requirements, I did these because I want to, and you make me want to. I saw your talent and possibilities.
When posted the doppelganger, I also thought about Capgras delusion.
“Capgras delusion is a disorder in which a person holds a delusion that a friend, spouse, parent, or other close family member (or pet) has been replaced by an identical-looking impostor. The Capgras delusion is classified as a delusional misidentification syndrome, a class of delusional beliefs that involves the misidentification of people, places, or objects (usually not in conjunction). It can occur in acute, transient, or chronic forms. Cases in which patients hold the belief that time has been “warped” or “substituted” have also been reported.” From Wikipedia.
One of my roommates is a greek girl who is studying psychology at Swansea University. Sometimes I wondered, are we living in the real world, are we real, what if our existences are fictional. This time I don’t have the chance to give it a further thinking and presentation, maybe next time. I’m so happy that after the poster presentation one female classmate told me she likes my poster even we haven’t much talk before, though I think I’m not good enough.
Anyway, this may be the first and the last group in our exchange year. I’m not satisfied with my performance, but you are awesome. I truly mean it. My English writing is okay, but my speaking is poor. This language barrier blocks my communication, I hope I can get rid of it one day.
Really thank you, Issy, Rob, Shirley, and Eddie, for helping me so much, teaching me so much, giving me so much.
