What a tired Tuesday!
February 22, 2011
I was still so exhausted from this past weekend. It is funny how you would think that having a holiday would leave me more rested, but I think I am more tired! Despite my exhaustion, I got up bright and early today to catch the first train. I headed for the hills! It was SO cold this morning. I seriously thought that my face might freeze off!
I didn’t really speed up the hills, but I was still glad that I did them. My muscles need to get used to the torture during Boston Marathon!
Oh, the whole being exhausted thing reminds me of the other night when Ashley was saying that I looked tired and had to wake up. I was of course a smart alec and told her, “No Ashley! I am just Asian so my eyes are like that!”
I know it’s bad to tease yourself because of your race. I think I automatically do it sometimes because when I was little I was teased because my eyes looked different (I went to a predominately white school) so I was just used to doing it to make myself feel better. Now, I’m just proud of my eyes and looking different (minus the fact that I’m pretty much blind!). My friends tease me and say I’m the whitest asian they know, but they still love me. I hope to someday learn more about my Korean culture and visit!
This leads me to a humorous story of my past. I was adopted hahahaha. Just kidding that’s not the funny part. But anyway, I was adopted when I was born. So as you can imagine, I was a tiny baby when my parents got me. When they brought me on a walk, the following conversation had happened:
The neighbor: “I can’t wait to hear her first words!”
My mom: “Why?”
The neighbor: “What if they are Korean?!”
My only reaction when I heard this story was…REALLY?! I always find it silly what people think sometimes. But I know that sometimes I say things that I should have thought before I said them. Lesson learned!
Were you ever made fun of as a child?
Do you ever find people’s reactions to things incredibly interesting?
Have you ever said something and wished you hadn’t?
