    How is it going
    I was told I m chatty by many.
    I don’t see myself that way ,although I like a little conversation at dinner. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Well ,it is not like that I chat my friend ears off!!
    It is more like me making small talks than chatting away.

    U know to me ,making small talks trump the awkward silences might be there otherwise.
    U see!

    Besides , I m more a chatee than a chatter ,for most part :))

    Well ,in the place I work with dozens of people working in a close quartet ,There are always some chatterup about sth ranging from gossiping to the choose if the restaurant for luanch break. I tell u ,there is always some disagreement there.
    I m telling you ,finding a mutual solution to some glitches in the work projects at hand is way easier to finding a mutually agreed-upon restaurant to go to at launch break :)))

    We have this one hour launch break. Expect for Fridays -when everybody skips the launch break so they can punch out rather get off work as early as possible- me and a couple of my workmate go to launch together. There are just the three of us still everyday st least one amongst us muse compromise his position for the collective good ๐Ÿ™‚

    Back to the topic at hand
    The consistent chatters is the inevitable implication of working in tiny cookie-cutter cubicles.

    Sometime the commotion draws out the manager voice
    I m telling you

    So he ends up shooting at the top of his voice.

    I am so alone that I’d like to chat with someone.
    Look for helpers, Warren said.
    We can talk together or with my friends, our dear Emiliano said.
    Let’s chat, Jeff said.
    But when I try… who is interested in my problems?

  4. Tania says:

    Just the fact that I feel the pleasure to post again on our blog
    is very important to me.
    I feel a kind of liberty, freedom.
    I have had no feeling for months. Just fright, worry, and worries.

  5. Tania says:


    Maybe Jeff can recommend us a new author, a new book to us.
    Reading, I hope to forget my worries.

    Reading the post “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed,
    Something Blue”…traditions in American weddings
    I have seen many American movies but I have not noticed this saying.
    Something blue… as the bride had to wear only white ,
    I was thinking about unhappy, gloomy, dismal as Peter said.
    Many mothers are crying at the wedding of their daughters.
    It’s something blue in a wedding as even from the next day nobody knows
    what can happen.
    Lucky or unlucky?

    I like very much and the epigraph of the book.

    hoping for anything.”

    Talking about “The Shared Wisdom of Mothers and Daughters” by
    Alexandra Stoddard…
    Dear Jeff, I have to thank you again for the useful English Cafe.
    A. Stoddard mentions in her book Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring and
    The Serenity Prayer that I learned it from Slaughterhouse 5 by
    Kurt Vonnegut, English Cafe 573.

    I miss your English Cafe very much.
    You taught us so many new things…just to understand
    the American culture.

  12. Tania says:


    Just to remember…
    Silent Spring by Rachel Carson is one of the books that have at times
    most powerfully influenced social change in American life, as
    in 1962 exposed the hazards of the pesticide DDT, which helped
    set the stage for the environmental movement.
    “And no birds sing.”

  13. Tania says:


    “God grant me the serenity to accept
    the sing I cannot change,
    courage to change the things I can,
    and wisdom always to tell the difference.”

    The Serenity Prayer by the theolog Reinhold Niebuhr

    Be prepared for disappointments!
    The best attitude in front of the disappointments we meet in
    The Serenity Prayer, A. Stoddard tells us.

  14. Tania says:


    In my opinion the chapter 11, Never Stop Learning, is very good.
    The love for reading is vital to us. Read a good book , and we will be
    more wise.
    Many thanks to all teachers who teach us.

  15. Tania says:


    And of course, the chapter 18, Be Strong.
    Take care of yourself, learn to be independent.
    We have to educate us to be independent.
    Think of yourself: by being self-centered, you may be benefiting the world.

    It’s late in night.

    Good night!
