I got in a huge fight with my family last night and locked myself in my room because it was my only haven. Well before I left for volleyball today, I made sure the house was spotless so that I wouldn’t have to return to yells. I especially cleaned out my room just for her.
Well, when I came home, I went to room to find out it was locked. Of course, the day I clean my room and am afraid of dealing with my family, I lock myself out of my own room. I felt like grabbing a hammer, and smashing my head with it. So I tried bobby pins, and needles… and even running into the door. All of which ended with a fat failure.
Well, the locksmith came, and another $50 gone. I swear, someone is out to get me.
I was trying to call my mom, but absent-mindedly I dial in my home phone number instead. So as I was waiting for my mom to pick up, obviously the home phone starts ringing. So I go pick that up, and say, “Sorry but could you hold on for a second,” only to realize that I was talking to myself.
i just found out that my great-grandfather was a famous governor/ambassador who had close relationships with both the founder of Taiwan and China - at times he held an even higher title than Chang Kai Shek.
I also found out that I’m related to scholars, the head of some secret service, the Secretary of Defense … they all have Wikipedia pages ;) Oh, and we have a family temple in the mainland.
But the best discovery of the night: We have a family inheritance that’s being passed down. This includes artwork, that stand at almost a million yuan each, that were painted by famous artists specifically for my ancestors.
