My next Nervous Breakdown post is up.
Before I moved to the Princeton area, I live in a town that was mostly Jewish and Italian, ie, not too many Asians, which messed with my head in terms of standards of beauty. Despite all the stereotypes of Asian women being trophy wives are whatever, my experience growing up was that Asian girls were not pretty. Or at least that’s how I felt.
In other news, I have my first cold of the year. It came on all of a sudden. On Friday I was perfectly fine. Then that evening I had a tickle in my throat. By Saturday my throat hurt, and by yesterday I was sneezing and stuffed up. Usually colds creep up on me very slowly. Hopefully this one will disappear as quickly as it started.
Trying to get my butt to the gym today. Will attempt a short run and then yoga. I usually feel better after a light workout when I have a cold.
In other other news, we saw The Lovely Bones this weekend. Two words: it sucked. Very boring and lame. So much of the book was glossed over or left out entirely. The only good thing was the acting.
