The bird that sticks out

I am extremely excited about the class on last Friday. for me, this class is probably one of the most unusual and interesting one in my life. now,i am regreted that i haven't been making enough effort to go to the few previous one. i am sure, i have missed tremendous amount that i would never learn at anywhere else.

the participation really got me. i think i am one of the kind that don't mind to be in the front of the row. but since i was little, the chinese education told me to be always in the middle. Chinese say, 'the gun only shot the bird that sticks out'. i learnt not to be the bird that sticks out, and when i stick out, i feel embarressed. being the front of anything, makes me feel that i am sticking out. but maybe it's good to participate fully to something, and not to be afraid of being the front. really, performing is all about sticking out :)
