rocknload: (飛輪海 ☌ 我也想還你 一樣的感動)
My final Chinese presentation was a disaster in which none of my Powerpoint worked right, and I ended up spending the entire thing literally leaping in front of a map of the United States that was projected a few feet above my head, pointing at individual states and trying to describe them in vague and messed up Mandarin. On the other hand, when asked what I did for New Years, I rattled off the names of the performers I saw at the Taipei 101—張惠美, 楊承琳, and 五月天—without any trouble at all. But I think that says more about my interests than like, any skill. 五月天's English name is Mayday, and if you're anything like me you'll squint at that for a second and then you'll be like, "... Oh. Hilarious." But I think they're well on their way to becoming like, one of my favorite bands. They're freaking amazing omg.

After the concert downtown Taipei was like a disaster scene with mobs of people all over the place, cops everywhere trying to do crowd control, all the convenience stores were looted, and after two hours of trying to escape I ended up sleeping in a bus station. That's how you know you partied hard, man.

It's already the third and I literally haven't done anything for the entire New Year. I have lost three days. Actually I'm like super depressed but I'm not sure why, maybe it's because my Chinese night school ends this week and then I will have no reason to live? But whatever man, I need to get off my ass and finish up my shit for my classes. Finals are next week and I need to get my shit together because I am vacationing in Americaland for the winter holiday.

I can tell when I'm stressed out because I get the urge to snap, "你看什麼看?!" at every Taiwanese person who gives me a double take. It's basically Mandarin for, "What are you looking at?" Well, fuck, who knows what it means. I barely speak Chinese, remember.
