1. When was the last time you cried? 上一次哭是什么时候?

On Monday.

On Mondays, I usually have therapy, and sometimes it comes with crying.

In general, besides therapy, I cry more often, as accepting more of my feelings and sometimes I do feel tired, lonely, desperate, and so on.

上星期一。

因为星期一我会去看我的心理咨询师,有时在做心理咨询的过程中会哭。自从我开始看见并接受自己的情绪,接纳有时的我也会感到疲劳、孤独或绝望时,逐渐发现自己变得很容易哭。

2. Where were you born? 你在哪里出生?

When I was a kid, I asked my mom where was the place we lived located, and she said ‘It at the edge of the Earth’. This is true if you look at the map.

It’s a small village and in the past an army zone named Chuguevka in Russian Far East. It’s in the middle of the taiga and very close to China.

当我还是个孩子的时候,我问我妈妈我们住的地方在哪里,她说’在地球的边缘’。如果你看看地图,你会发现这绝对是真的。

我出生在一个小村庄,位于俄罗斯远东地区,它之前是一个的军区叫做Chuguevka。这个村位于西伯利亚中东部,到处都是泰加林且离中国很近。

3.A book you plan on reading? 打算读哪本书?

I have a huge list of books to read.

But the next one, I think, will be The Better Angels of Our Nature by Steven Pinker.

我想读的书单很长。

我要读的下一本书应该是史蒂芬·平克的《人性中的善良天使》。

4. Favorite Chinese saying? 最喜欢的一句中国谚语是?

缘分, it is used as saying, but I love the word itself.

缘分 means sort of destiny. Often used when meeting someone.

But the word itself beautiful, as the combination of 2 characters. 缘-yuan- means Karma, 分-fen-means Sharing.

So when we meet someone special, it’s a sharing of our Karma.

虽然严格地讲“缘分”不是谚语,但是我很喜欢这个词的含义。我是这样理解这两个字:缘可以说是“卡玛,因果报应”的意思,”分“是“分享”的意思。缘分就是是某种必然存在相遇的机会和可能,换句话当我们遇到很特殊的人,是因为我们的命运、卡玛是相同的。

5. If you could master any instrument what would that be?如果你能演奏任何乐器,你希望是什么?

Piano.

When I was a kid, I studied it for a few years and then I stopped. Always wanted to come back to it, and be able to play the piano.

钢琴。

我小时候学过几年弹琴,然后就放弃了。我总想重新开始学,学会钢琴弹得很好。

我在中国生活时间久了,也享受不少旅行机会,所以我会说是中国! 你要的大自然景观如山地、湖泊、沙漠、森林,或者现代高科技城市—— 中国全都有。
