Translation of 老徐's 再见，2006。 post:
The snow's stopped, the road's clear, going up the mountain again. Three hours of mountain road with safeguards this time. I slept at ease on the car.
The last day of 2006, I've blazed like a fire through my work. Being here for for several years doesn't mean I see a lot of that. When I filmed A Letter 《来信》, it crossed years, though I've already forgotten how I got through it. What I can be sure of is that they haven't been quiet like the end of this year. The days are getting better, this is really worth rejoicing over.
Sitting on the bed in the mountain hotel, time's passing second by second, the heater's giving out a 'hua hua' sound. I haven't seen the flourescent lamp in a long time, the small yellow light from the wall lamp is still warm. I haven't spent my life like this, the voices of the people outside are noisy and confused, if I stay for a bit everything fades out. I'm really bored, thoughts are flashing across my mind, I'm recalling the past, I'm missing my family, I'm feeling regretful, I'm feeling rejoiceful, these are the themes of my days.
2006 is going to pass soon. My main leader says: you have real good fortune, you still need to try hard. The second leader says: Small girl —— the things you've done aren't too bad.
Actually, there's nothing to really sum up. This year I've written down a yearlong diary, looking back through it, they're all memories. Everyday, there's some big event.
So, Happy New Year! Goodbye, 2006.
