So, the new day of the new year, my mom ever-so-kindly shares with me that "if I fail, my family will not recognize me" as a warm-hearted message prior to my leaving for and living in Taiwan.

...words fail me. I can laugh or I can cry -- or, third option, I can vent on my blog.

"Writing" down these fantastic familial incidences in cyberspace lets me see, in text, that I'm not crazy; she is trying to sabotage me. Her "help" is not so helpful, and I'm not imagining it.

Holy shit! I would have laughed AND cried. Not so helpful?

On the other hand, it's not like you're going to miss her tons while you're on the other side of the world, eh?

Happy New Year. I'm looking forward to hearing about how it goes in Taiwan. I think you'll do very well.

Yeah, I won't miss her very much at all. I'm hoping that lots of time apart where she can't call me up to nag me to come visit her (as during college and most of grad school) will get me to that zen-state I see in one of my childhood friends who just lets all the mama-drama roll off her back. I want that!

For sure, living at home the past year has really frayed my temper and patience with her. I snap at her a lot, but I've recently realized that I'm short with her because I repress my anger when she says crap like that and so it comes out during "ordinary" moments. I don't really like who I am lately with her. *is sad* I want to be a better person.

New Year's resolution: become a better person!
