I have abandoned all China plans and returned to America. Yea, I did it for a girl. What else, right? I have been in Michigan almost a month now. Going back to Portland in two days. Time to stop being a 24 year-old undergraduate.
Readapting to America has been a lot easier this time. When I moved back to the States the first time I still somehow thought I was special and had an unfortunately pressing need to tell people where I had been. Now I just don't give a damn, and would just sooner hide it. This is fantastic news.
Though I still do secretly feel like hot shit speaking Chinese in public. ?????
Being in this college town East Lansing would be a little surreal if I hadn't just come from Korean student town in Beijing. There are tons of Koreans here too. How can such a small country export so many a) cell phones and b) students?
Back to Portland soon. Things that must be done: Find an apartment downtown
, make music with him
, see a show
, plenty of work stuff
