晚餐

晚餐做了高昇排骨,我最會做的菜。大家都很喜歡,很棒。

來這裡之後,也稍微觀察了其他同樣在這條路上奮鬥的朋友是如何計劃每天的行程。
如果要突出,自己就應該要更加努力。

專心!

洛杉磯


洛杉磯的天氣跟台北一樣,下雨、晴天輪流交替著。

成功的ARTIST要具備很強的技術之外,良好的溝通能力以及大方親切和善的做人也非常重要。
這邊每個講師的能力都很強,業界經驗也很豐富,更重要的是每個人都很親切很無私的跟同學分享,一點架子都沒有。他們都是很好的榜樣,我想這是除了向他們學習技術以外,所學到更有價值的東西。而這個價值觀跟態度可以讓我未來的人生走的更有價值更有意義。

在此謝謝學校的Kevin還有Estelle。能夠認識你們真的是很開心,也很感激你們這麼熱心在各方面幫助我們。謝謝:)
