The Foaming Weariness

Foaming steam、different country’s electric adapters adapting endlessly、rice cooker、scent of rice… The foaming weariness is a very simple and personal piece among my practices, it truly reflects my personally state in the pass three years.
Since 2008, I moved to London from Taiwan, and have been being just like most of international students who were expecting the experience of studying abroad would bring better/different future, but the cultural impacts and hardships in daily life are everywhere; For the reason, I pushed myself, also yearned for a better language ability, appropriate behaviors, and logical thoughts in order to integrate into this new society/cultural more. Measwhile, I started to be aware of the my native context and difference through this accommodation, then to struggle and question myself about that if it is impossible and unnecessary to change myself…
In conclusion, the endlessness-like adaptor connections shows a mental process that all kind of complex band together and entangled to another, in which the fatique me overflows by boiling just as the rice cooker.
