Finally, I got on the video call with my parents yesterday evening.
I broke the news to them. I was calm. They handled it well. I was surprised and relieved.
During the call, we talked about my life back in Shanghai. I said I don’t want another nine-to-six job. Instead, I’ll start my own studio, be my own boss, and have my own clients. It’s going to be difficult. But I need to try it out.
I checked the plane ticket back to Shanghai. The date is going to be around mid-October.
I canceled my gym and training membership this morning. It’ll end on Sept 26.
Every day till I leave LA is going to be a countdown now. As for my three-year adventure in the US? Win some. Lose some. All interesting.
PS. I met my friend again yesterday afternoon. We had a lovely chat. I need to have a better coping mechanism than giving in to rage. It’s simply not worth it.
