What an interesting concept! I haven’t experienced these sorts of trip ups with intercultural differences, but I can definitely apply this concept to socializing as a very closed off, introverted person. I might just be a coconut in a peach culture.
Absolutely relatable. There is a fear of failure to meet the expectations of others, especially close family. The millennial crisis is rearing its head in many strange and curious forms but the overall tone is pervasive: ineptitude, a changing world, and broken promises. I wonder what it would take to get a program like New Start this in the States?
The story of the Ovitz family is so bittersweet; they were favored and treated preferentially because of their genetic conditions but then forced to play guinea pig and circus act for their captors in order to retain that favor. It's a wonder they made it out alive.
does anyone else really enjoy metahumor?
I appreciate the direction this post is going in, but can we not focus so much on the minor grammatical inconsistencies of the fake pages and more on the fact that their content is blatantly provocative and aims to divide and incite hatred? A missing indefinite article can happen anywhere; I'm more wary of a group that posts that [x] group is invariably better than/will surpass [y] group.
Wouldn't it be nice to have a day away from consumerism and just focus on quiet and community?
Somehow the idea that spending time immersed in nature improves one's mental and spiritual health is wholly unsurprising to me.

"What I mistook for 'love' for my job was actually human willingness to support others being taken advantage of by the non-profit industrial complex."
If that didn't hit like a punch in the gut. Some of us are still unpacking the desire to work ourselves to death as a "noble sacrifice."
