Liu Maochan - a Chinese painter with a touch of French impressionism à la Monmartre. Gorgeous.

???? Why do you have a limp???
Walked all 6,000 ft end-to-end of my new campus (the ordinary story of pratz getting lost as always) and there’s a nail in my right shoe sole which I didn’t notice until I took off my sock, all torn and bloodied. Literally would be apt to have The Decemberists’ Red Right Ankle sung for me right now. :D

hugglescuddlestackles. Welcome back, Tee! Glad you’re alive and kickin’.
Kickin’ with a limp, sure. :)
I had a fight with my mom before I left again for work. In a way, she criticized my line of work, and I her not understanding my choice. It was awful. The only thing that kept me from screaming and crying in frustration, like her, was because I was driving to the airport. I didn’t call her before I boarded, also not when I was on transit, still not when I arrived at my new apartment. It was so, so awful because my mom was always my best friend first and mother next.
It’s settled now. She apologized, and I too did. It’s just that it brought back a reminder I so long tried to ignore: part of growing up is knowing that you have the power to hurt your parents, intentionally, immensely.
