12:14 am - WTF....
Ok, it's been awhile since I've been so "wtf" and confused. I make a simple comparison on the differences of parenting between Asian (Chinese) and Western traditions, and she...actually I don't what the hell she thought I was saying O__o;; She said the comment was insulting...but I didn't even take a side or make a provocative statement or even hint at controversy, if I wanted to insult I'd more than make it clear. It felt like one of those classic anime/manga moments where you can practically see the question marks springing up around my head. Since when did cultural comparisons become insulting?? Not like it's a big secret that the East and the West have a slew of different traditions especially when it comes to parenting stuff.

Yeah my mom's had a nice job most of her life, yeah she's only had to raise me, but she's also had to live through some of the most turbulant years in Chinese history, not to mention brave a new world when she was well into her 30's in a country she knew nothing of the culture nor language. Fuck ask me to go live in France for a year and I'd be quivering from nervousness and I _know_ enough French not to look like a complete idiot. If I was in her place I'd so have just stayed in China where by now she'd probably be the president of a University by now or something instead of coming to some strange country where she knew no one (sometimes I wish she still did, then she'd have major connections, not to mention my dad's old job of working for the government, and my job of climbing the ladder into politics would be a hell of a lot easier).

I quoted a sentence from her post that I found funny because it's something my mom would never say to me, again, because of cultural differences. Maybe that's what she found insulting? Hmm...either way, she could've just asked me to clarify, she should know that of all the people I'd insult on this planet, even family included, she's not one of them. But my bad for that assumption x: It just really felt like a jab in the heart when I read her reply. Her thinking I would purposely insult such a good friend hurts like nothing else has for awhile now. I value my friends so so much, since they're a good chunk of the reason why I'm still alive and plan to be alive, and to have one that I value above all accuse me of that.....heh...ironic.

I didn't want to make a huge, long, essay comment on her journal going through every nitpick of differences, dragging out every aspect and being all politically correct since I have to do enough of that at school and in just about everything else I do to make me feel like I'm a walking text book, so I figured her being a good friend she'd understand *sigh*. Looks like I was wrong, good friends can't read minds, not like how they show in anime/manga lol. Well, back to politically correctness it is then. Looks like mom was right, no matter how well you think someone knows you, they're still not you, you're still alone in the end.

[EDIT]: *5 minutes later* On second thought someone just shoot me, this world's too complicated for me DX
