OMG the hot dog one

Anyone else mildly disturbed by the ‘Kit Cat Cake’? Do I need to be prepared for surprises of the dead feline kind when consuming a piece of that?

Brother Bear Appreciation Week

Day 3: Favourite Quotes

LET ME TELL YOU WHY THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT, UNDERRATED DISNEY FILMS OF ALL TIME OKAY:

1. It teaches kids that we should never judge others by their appearance or what we’ve seen on the surface.

2. It teaches kids that despite if we’ve been taught to be afraid of or hate something or someone that looks/acts differently than us, we should learn and try to understand them before we judge them.

3. It teaches that two sides that may hate each other don’t always have to stay that way - they can learn and grown from each other’s mistakes.

4. It teaches that hatred is not always the answer; to listen, to step back, and see through someone else’s eyes. It teaches patience, understanding, and wisdom.

5. IT TEACHES CHILDREN THAT PEOPLE CAN BE FORGIVEN AND DO BETTER.

6. It teaches children that even if you make a mistake, you can learn and grow from it like Kenai.

Seriously I just love this movie to pieces it is so important to me and I wish more people knew/watched it because wtf it’s AMAZING.

Finding Myself Again

When I told people I was moving to China, and their jaws dropped, I internally shook my head from what I thought was an overreaction. 

After all, I thought, I’ve lived in Nanjing to some degree for about a cumulative year. 

And I had relatives, a job and a husband. What more could I ask for? I was used to the weather, the culture (mostly — off days result in a lot of unhappy sniffling in a corner), the people and the job.

But at 22 years old, no summer-camp-esque experience to jet-start me into meeting new people, I have discovered that I am entirely reliant on my husband and relatives to introduce me to new people.

And although I truly appreciate all the help, somehow I feel a lack of autonomy in choosing with whom I’d like to befriend and get to know.

It reminds me a little of when my mom once told me,

"Once you get married, your friends life will disappear. You either become friends with your husband’s friends, or you husband will become friends with your friends’ husbands. That, or a mix of both. And it’s a miracle if you ever find the perfect couple match for both of you." 

And to some extent, what with jettisoning off halfway across the world, I’m beginning to find that a little true. 

OK — a LOT true.

I’ve been in Nanjing for 10 days or so now, and I’ve met some new people. But entirely through my husband. And it breaks my heart because I know he’s trying hard to ease me into his lifestyle and his friends.

But as an introvert (and particularly so, as I’m feeling fairly displaced with this realization of a lack of friends), I get wiped out very easily and particularly so with making sure I act correctly within the associated cultural nuances.

When it comes down to it, I get along with them, I enjoy their presence and their conversation. But somehow, something key is just missing.

And even though, knowing myself, I much prefer simply being home and sleeping, reading or thinking to myself, I also know that I need a few English-speaking friends that I’ve made in my own time, in my own terms, in my own awkward way, to feel fully at home back here in Nanjing.

It’s not to say that I don’t like and enjoy my husband’s friends on their own, but somehow it’s just not the same as finding someone I like within my own context.  

Once I start working. InshaAllah.
