I'm increasingly disillusioned with this policy of appeasement because it's obvious that this guy is not satisfied with only Sudetenland or even with the entire Czechoslovakia. And this guy has the full set of crabs on his shoulder to take what he wants and be lippy about it. He's lucky I'm only a small fry, because I'll dish out as good as I'm getting, otherwise.

One major thing I'm learning on this trip is the importance of suffering in silence. At times. For a while I was thinking that I need to be assertive, even aggressive, or be taken advantage of. But sometimes, being loud and opinionated and complaining comes across as being rude, argumentative and whining. There are times when it's better to just swallow things down and keep it quiet. It's something I'll have to get the balance of before people start forming negative impressions of me, because things have been pretty rough and I've been shooting my mouth off quite a bit. =(

Hanging out in Phoenix, Arizona right now. Work is tough but things are simple, and it's almost like life is at a limbo while I'm overseas. Of course, it'll all come crashing down when I get back, but for now I'm just going with the flow and enjoying the simple life. No need to worry about anything but what's immediately before me. Just gotta remember to do the laundry before I run out of clothes.
And I think I've missed a few opportunities here and there to fulfil one of my life's objectives, but I'm pretty cool about it these days. 宁缺勿烂 is something I'm going to stick to, and I'm still pretty confident that the right opportunity will present itself in time. Meanwhile I'll just keep improving myself and preparing to take it firmly with both hands when it comes.
