My roommates are all away in New York this week, so I spent the whole week all by myself. Quite different, right?

I went to join the Church's activity last week and this week. Last time for Christmas and this time for Bible Study and I found it a lot of fun. I've always been interested in Bible and having a person who really believes in god share his understanding with you is quite a wonderful experience, different from I taking a Bible Literature Study Class when I was a senior in college,better, I can say.

I want to talk about what happened tonight after everyelse went out to sing Christmas song. I stayed with Maureen and the hostess. When they learned that I may have to work during Christmas, they analized my situation for me and told me that I can balance between being respectful for my advisor and standing up for my own right of having some time off for Christmas. It is in America and people have one day off for Christmas , it is lawful and legal. I told about people being treated differently and they asked me if Chinese were treated more hashly? I said that I think so sometimes. "Because they are afraid and Americans are not, they will think that you are an asshole and why would I work for you?" They think that working during holiday seems like being driven like a slave or a negro. It startled me the way they think of it. They told me there is a huge cultural difference between America and China. And I can't help to think about what they said. I mean, you can feel it, but when people put it so straightforward so that you get startled, you start to realise it. You are not supposed to obey everything. You are supposed to respect people as well as stand for yourself.God , I am not coming here to ignore the merits of this country,right?

I know that I am smart and talented than most of them. However, I will get to nowhere if I do not believe in myself and stand up for myself.

This is America and I should be brave to do the right thing!
