Everyone is a person! Every person is different! It’s so cool!
Yes. I wish that us girls would stop complaining about each other and ally so we can plot against the boys together and take over the world.
I have seriously told my boyfriend like 100x that I think men are stupid and that women should run the world, and I don’t think he knows that I’m 100% serious. Men have fucked things up since forever, I think its our turn now.

UGH My friends and I went to a comedy show where the headliner (Ryan Dalton) told… rape jokes. *sigh*
It was so offensive on so many levels (duh it was an unfunny rape joke). Here is the drift of it:
A girl gets on an elevator with Ryan and two other guys. He overhears the girl’s telephone conversation when her friend tells her to call when she gets home so her friend knows she’s safe. He takes this to mean that he’s the “rapey one,” so he feels the need to tell her, “don’t worry, I’m not going to rape you. You’re not pretty enough,” because you know, “if I’m going to rape someone, I’m going to rape ‘up’ not ‘down.’” After saying this, he says that the two other guys in the elevator high fived him because, you know, being a douchebag is totally OK when 2 other bros high five you.
This totally makes me sick in so many ways I can’t even count them. It makes me sick that pigs like this not only get space to share whatever misogynistic “witticism” crosses their tiny brain, but they get paid to do it AND some stupid people actually laugh. GREAT these insecure dicks get rewarded to perpetuate the horrible thoughts they occasionally have in the vast wasteland of their minds.
It makes me sick that he’s basically implying that him raping you is a compliment like “oh man I got raped but at least he thought I was ~pretty~” Fuck that. If being “ugly” means I don’t raped by some middle-aged loser then I’ll take my chances.
It makes me sick that he (along with multitudes of others) don’t understand the risk you are taking just being a GIRL BY HERSELF. It doesn’t matter if you were the only person in elevator or if there were fifteen. Neither does your size, race, or general appearance: YOU ARE THREATENING BECAUSE YOU ARE A MALE STRANGER. She doesn’t know that Ryan Dalton is a “nice guy” (which, let’s face it, NO) she is thinking “Oh man, if something happens to me when I’m alone I’m a) defenseless b) no one will believe me because we live in a society that blames victims and apparently takes personal offense to a girl’s legitimate fear of getting raped”
It makes me sick that, in spite of all the privileges he has being a white guy, he still takes personal offense to this girl’s friend’s reasonable request to be updated on the safety of her friend. As if white guys have it rough when girls afraid of being raped by them. UMMMMMMM you know what, I think I would like to switch places because it would be nice to NOT be afraid to walk home alone at night even if it means that some people think I’m threatening.
After that rape joke he told some other unfunny jokes about the “combinations” to get into women’s vaginas (do I have to talk to them, tell them that I love them to get into their pants…?) and shortly after that my friends and I left.
I seriously get so sick of men in general sometimes.

So yesterday I learned by experience that the most awkward place to run into someone by far is the Planned Parenthood.

Just found out that my 95 year old grandfather had a stroke. He is doing fine, as far as having a stroke goes at his age, and he is getting better. Anyway, I’m probably going to go home in a month to visit for about 2 weeks, so I can surprise my dad on his birthday bc my dad, who has had a brain disease for about 15 years, is not doing so well.
Also, on another note, I just read another friend’s fb status about the elimination of the term “illegal immigrant” and some bigot decided to comment on it about how people who illegally immigrated don’t deserve basic rights living in the US and blah blah blah. I am so over these anti-immigration people. Am I allowed to dismiss anything they have to say and just call them racist and go home? BC honestly, viva la reconquista!!
Why do my Sims gotta be all sexist and patriarchal and take each other’s last names when they move in together? I mean really. Now their names sound stupid.
There’s not even any men in my little Sims town. On purpose.
Bahahahahah this is the best ever!!
This is the first text my bf will probably read from me this morning:
“I saw a guy yesterday walking his dog across the street holding his dog’s paw… It didn’t occur to me as strange until now…”
Yeah, I saw a guy walking his dog across the street like it was a little kid.
The fact that I didn’t even think anything of it until a day after is a testament to how long I’ve been in China. I think that while there is a huge pressure here to conform and be “normal,” their definition of normal is pretty damn broad compared to the US. Like, you could probably do things like sleep on a public bench and no one would think anything of you except that you’re tired. I saw a guy legit asleep in a supermarket sitting on the floor the other day, reading a book and no one asked him to leave. But maybe only in Xi’an?

My mom is here from China, and its really trying my patience. So far its like this:
-She won’t eat any Chinese food because she thinks it will make her sick
-She won’t eat any meat here because she thinks it will make her sick
-She won’t eat anything with chopsticks because she doesn’t know how to use them, and she got mad at me for assuming that she would know that you have to use chopsticks in China
-She came here without any ideas for what things she wants to see/do here, except stay at a hotel, get massages, and our nails done. So basically, I’ve had to do all the planning.
-She gets mad and confused because everything here is priced in the national currency, the Yuan. (“Why won’t the just tell me in USD???”)
-She won’t go anywhere without me because she won’t try to navigate her way alone (Which is guess is understandable, but I’LL NEVER BE ALONE AHHHHHHH!!!)
I’m trying really hard to be nice to her, but I’m also counting down the days until she leaves, which is 8. T_T

Yesterday was 6 months in China, and today is Chinese New Year and the beginning of Year of the Snake (my year, bitches!!!) aaaaaaaaand I got food poisoning. My boyfriend is the best ever and took care of me, even though I told him that he should go out and celebrate without me. I had a hard time getting him not to stay this afternoon, but I didn’t want to come right out and say, “I need some alone time with the toilet” because I am a prude. Anyway, moral of the story: my bf is the absolute best.

PSA for people who lecture those who don’t like their parents.
Just because you have a healthy relationship with your parents doesn’t mean that everyone does or has to. Sometimes the person who is complaining about their parents actually has a legitimate reason to dislike them, and they might not necessarily want to divulge because its really personal and/or painful to remember. It gets really frustrating when someone is trying to reach out for support and have the person listening jump to defend the parent when they know nothing about the situation. If you don’t know, just nod and listen or ask. It’s not always, “I hate my mom because she didn’t buy me an iPad blah blah blah” FYI
Anyway, I just found out that my mother is coming to Xi’an in 3 weeks and I’m really not excited about it. When I told my bf that I wasn’t happy to hear the news, he told me that I “should” be, despite the fact that I’ve been telling him how stressed I’ve been about her possibly coming to China for weeks, so you can believe I shut that down. Thankfully he apologized and said that he didn’t understand so he shouldn’t have said anything, which is definitely the appropriate response.
I’m just getting sick of people assuming I’m a brat when I tell people I don’t have a good relationship with my mother, I guess.
