This is hardly home away from home.

Here I am, across the Pacific Ocean, in Shanghai. Just my luck that my relatives have to live in China and not in the USA. This place is not nice.

Normally I like rain. It's good for my dry skin. It's a change from the dry weather in California. But here, rain is disgusting. It's a hassle because you have to carry an umbrella while dodging cars, people, and bikers. Some places, the streets aren't pedestrian-friendly and you have to walk in the street next to the cars. If you don't step carefully mud gets all over your pants.

Oh, and the shops... Sometimes the people inside will give you a plastic bag to put your umbrellas in. That's all well and good, but oftentimes when people are done browsing they just throw the plastic bag on the ground outside the shop...But no one picks it up so it looks really bad. (Our family, at least, kept the bag so it could be reused.)

The car drivers are just bleh. I almost got run over by a car that didn't wait for the pedestrians to cross the street (luckily, my mom grabbed me a split second before). People even run red lights in their haste, and pedestrians have to make a run for it when they can. I just make faces at them since they can't hear me with the street noise. I saw an ambulance outside a shop. There was a guy lying on the ground with weird orange stuff all over him. My mom says he must've been run over by a car because he wasn't responding.

The people themselves are not ones you want to know. Most of them have a "permanent scowl" on their faces. Most people, men in particular, smoke. And in places people dump their trash outside the window because it's the only way to get rid of it. I heard an old man got hit on the head by trash once and died. (The wind blew it towards his head, and it was a long drop, so the trash had picked up speed)

The time difference here is sad too. I have trouble adjusting to time differences. Even now I am usually tired and have a headache. I'll have adjusted soon, but by then I will have to go back home and I only have three days then to adjust back. Not enough time. So I'll be exhausted during school.

Air is polluted around here so even on a clear day the sky looks really dreary. This place really is depressing. Not even bright colors seem pleasant like they would where I live. There isn't much trees or flowers here except maybe in parks or zoo. And a few of those are dead-looking because it's winter.

I really don't understand why my teacher wants to come to Shanghai. (He thinks it's a place where criminals hang out. Maybe that is true.)

Sorry people. I have been busy slacking off, eating stuff, and plying games and etc.
@_@. I wonder what else I should rant about...... OH YES. I remember! There was a 'Birthday "PARTY"' at Super Buffet that included playing insanely LOUD and HORRIBLE dance 'music'. Super Buffet didn't make a door since WHO THE HECK KNEW THIS WOULD BE COMING? >:O Everyone else wants a tranquil environment when eating. -.- Some guy asked the manager to tune it down some. After they tuned it down, it wass STILL UNBEARABLY LOUD. >:O I bet the stupid party-goers just made it lower by one volume level. -.- I seriously HATE loud noises when I'm eating.... or just noise in general. >:O Seriously. I hope Super Buffet sets up a door or I'm never going back there again... my parents will have to drag me in a wheelbarrow XD.

You people never post :P
Then again, i shouldn't talk, should I?
I got Animal Crossing. For the Wii.
I payed off my first mortgage in a day. x.x
I think the game is gonna engulf my soul into its hypnotic music.
Seriously. It makes you stop thinking. =w=;
Felt like posting in this postless void. :o

Oh no, I am getting old

I mean, both mentally and physically, I feel like I'm changing into an old lady, right before my own eyes. ;_;

Mentally- When I'm looking at the people around me, even the ones who are older than I am, I feel like I am a teacher looking at children or something. They seem so innocent and playful, even though there are some people that talk about inappropriate things publicly. (Ick.) I mean, it makes me think, everyone doesn't have any serious worries or something. D:

Physically- My bones tend to make cracking sounds. Especially my neck, back, knees... When I was little, my old ballet teacher told me that I had stiff shoulders. You aren't supposed to have stiff shoulders until you're older and have finished growing. Also, I tend to have less energy and endurance, which is something that happens to the elderly. (Even video games tell me that your running endurance decreases with age...) And my skin is slightly more wrinkly than the people around me, although not noticeably so. (This is probably due to me being short, but still.)

And then...There was the time I found a gray hair. That was very disturbing indeed. *shudder*

I'm sorry....

Stupid Friday.
I scared the beep out of you guys.

Or I scared myself.
I feel so stupid and childish for being so careless about my heart rate.
I'm sorry.
I'm really glad I have friends that I know they will always be there.
I'm such a nub.
(this might be random to those who don't know about it...)

Moods are important to me.

Have you noticed that every time someone asks me something like "do you like ____ stuff?"
and I always say:
I don't know, it depends on my mood.
I just found that out and it's a bit scary...
But it's true.
I need to do everything a certain way when I have my mood set.
And they aren't definable moods.
Moods that are like...I don't know...
Not moods like angry or sad or happy.
Just really confusing emotions all at once.
I thought I had multiple personalities, but I don't think that's the case.
Anyone else ever feel that something HAS to be done a certain way because your mood is set to it?
Probably not...but still I'd like to know! :DDD
