After changing my life completely within 24 hours and living May 31st TWICE (the different time zones) and getting used to the jet lag I've finally settled. I now actually go out doors, have actual human friends and go to an American high school. Believe me, it was overwhelming and I wanted to just choke myself to death a lot of times, but now I fear that I have gotten quite used to it, since I now officially hate teachers and homework just as any other spoiled American kid does.
High school was not as bad as I expected. I didn't encounter any bullying, racism, or drama. Well, at least not yet, I have only been in school for 6 months. People are really nice, especially if you act like you're foreign and pretend you don't understand English when you actually recieved a better grade in English than almost everyone else in your class. (*sigh,* the "goodgraded-ness" that flows around in Asian blood) I had a lot of trouble socializing with other fellow Americans always having constant silences during our conversations and basically regreting every dang word that comes out of my mouth, but now I think I've gotten used to it. I've picked up the ability to continue an actual interesting and long converstation with a friend without having awkward silences or looking like a freak. Kudos to me for the awesome improvement.
The hardest thing in HS, which is something I still live with everyday, is the fact that I suck in P.E. I was almost the most athletic person in class when I was in Taiwan, but over here I'm as athletic as a smashed piece of cherry pie. I have no clue what to do during basketball games, I can't open my eyes underwater, I've never actually hit a ball with a bat before, and even Badminton, a game which I've played for years in Taiwan, was a complete alien game to me because we had to play it with actual rules. In Taiwan, we didn't give a crap about rules, I never knew there even were rules. And everywhere I turn there's someone saying how you should join a sport when your in high school and how it's the only way you can be fit, popular and be an "ideal student". I seriously wanna shoot myself.
Other than that, life's been great. Oddly perfect, actually. School work's kinda bugging, but I got 2 Bs and all As last semester without trying too hard so I don't really care. I still have social issues - not being able to talk to a guy that I like or even the "popular people." (those people scare me to death) I came here to complain, and I'm gonna leave wasting the time of anybody who actually read this 8) Hey, isn't this what blogs are for?
