RIP James Garner

Gma

Last night I noticed my gma’s room light was on so I went to check up on her. When she saw me, her face lit up and she gave me the cutest toothless smile. Maybe it hasn’t set in that I moved back in haha.

More, more, more

I suppose it’s only natural that people always want more. Moderation is not something everyone lives by. This is something I’ve especially noticed in my own family, which is full of hoarders. I recently moved back home from China and it helped me realize how full my house is… So many unnecessary things!! How do you help a hoarder?

Boyfriend returned to China today… watching OITNB to relieve the sadness.

OITNB is my drug of choice.

Reverse Culture Shock: from China to America

- What I don’t need to turn on my VPN for Facebook, Gmail, Reddit, and a bunch of other stuff I want to use?
- Pedestrians have the right of way? So you’re sure the car is gonna stop?
- I don’t need to carry my own toilet paper and soap around?
- What’s a tip?
- People… WAIT in line?

I’ve been home twice in the last two years, but I still feel disoriented…

Movie Watching in China

To me, movies are not just about the film itself, but the experience. You sit down with your popcorn and beverages, chat with your friends for a bit, and wait for the lights to dim… As the lights dim, the anticipation grows. You watch exciting trailers until what you’ve been waiting for finally begins. During those 1.5-3 hours, you’re in another world, not the life you’re so used to living. When the credits begin to roll and the lights turn on, that’s when it’s back to reality.

Not in China. While in China, you’re permanently stuck in reality. Here are the following things that you may experience while movie watching in China:

  1. People CONSTANTLY texting. I mean constantly. Just recently, my boyfriend took me to watch Godzilla. A few rows ahead of us, a girl was on the phone the WHOLE time.
  2. People constantly checking the time. Are you in a hurry? Do you thnk you’re wasting your time? Just leave.
  3. People’s phones ringing and what’s worse… they ANSWER the phone. If someone whispers quietly and only speaks for a few seconds, I let it go, but there are some people who will speak loudly - almost yelling level - for MINUTES.
  4. People having conversations while the movie is playing. I suppose what is being said in the movie isn’t interesting enough. 
  5. People leaving early. If some people see that others are leaving, slowly but surely, they will do it too… Even before the movie is over! I guess they want to beat mall traffic…

The same applies for concents in China - I’ve been to two, Sarah Brightman and Wang Lee Hom. I did not just pay good money for this!
