Neither bmp nor I remembered how we spent the last Spring festival. All I've remembered was that mum was in US at that time and I felt home with her at our West Hills apartment. Later the week I escaped to WV and took mum to Washington D.C. I had my period during the trip and that was hardly a good experience for me. The only pity might be that mum's opinion tended to overcome mine sometimes, making it especially hard when mum asked me to choose between bmp and her. I hope I will never have another spring festival with that sort of argument in mind. Time is too precious to be wasted in that garbage thinking.
The spring festival before last year's was another happy one. We gather together at bmp's old pineview apartment and made dumplings. Sister Li Rui, Dr. Gou, Alice, Michael, Dr. Li and his pregnant wife. We were all there and had a great time. During that year, I seldom had chances to spend time together with bmp. Either he had to drive over to Cincinnati or I had to fly to Pittsburgh, which added up to later credit card debt. We thought it was worth it. Nothing is more important than people in love staying together.

This spring festival, two years have passed, Dr. Li's daughter Ivy was about to turn to 2 years old. Bmp and imp just came back from Cincinnati after making arrangements about imp's new apartment. The happiest part is that imp has this spring festival together with bmp. Last night, new year's eve in China, we had dinner at a wonderful seafood buffet in Columbus and drove back with stars all over the night sky. It was such a beautiful and sweet night to cover the long route linking Cincinnati to Morgantown with two of us together. Too many times before, either one of us drove along, with the other one waited anxiously at the destination. Today bmp felt pretty tired, I guess that's from the long driving and less sleep these days. I made noodles for dinner. Both he and Shimeng had to attend the group meeting starting at 7pm first and come back home after that. There was no fancy dinner for New Year's Eve as what families usually do in China. I missed the food, only the food part though. Because I also clearly remembered small pieces of family arguments during the Spring festival. Some families are quiet and cosy with members care more about each other's well-being. My family is not on the list. Most of the time, it is just a lot happier and simpler if it were just mum and me. Now, it is not practical to spend every spring festival with mum. I grew up and had bmp. He is like my other harbor in this world so the spring festival with him also felt like home and real. Well, I guess I can sacrifice the food part for a better and clearer inner self.

I had the longest vocation ever since college, starting from Oct. 15th to Feb 1st. And I stayed with bmp all the time after I came back from China around Nov. 22nd. After the Thanksgiving trip around the east coast with college friends, we celebrated Christmas 2013 at Laguna Beach in California, the most beautiful Christmas ever, and the warmest. After that, I stayed at Morgantown and most of the time at home or school library. Life was not that convenient when another person came to join us and I was not that happy with that. However, I convinced myself to be active about the situation and stay happy. Anyway, after our Christmas trip, things stayed in the middle. Above all, time together with bmp is so precious that we enjoyed every minute of it despite occasional arguments. Now, at the night of New Year's Eve, with our dumpling date with friends tomorrow and long-time departure the day after tomorrow, I can't help felt so reluctant to part with bmp. He told me the same thing with his eyes. Sometimes I came to blame myself for not living every moment to its fullest during the past vocation. Well, things happen for a reason plus it is hard to determine what is the fullest state. I convinced myself not to be too hard on myself. I enjoyed the past and I have to embrace the future, no other choices. Maybe it is part of the journey that I cannot escape. God has arranged something good there that I will need to explore that by myself. Living with Mrs. J will be an unique experience, a chance that I probably won't have for a second time. I have to try that. If that is at the sacrifice of temporary separation, I had to push myself forward. Although a little nervous about the new job, I had to experience and conquer that.

New year, the year of my symbol-horse. I have very different life outlook ahead of me, which I am taking on curiously, cautiously and nervously. No matter what lies ahead, I will see that for myself. No rush, no hurry. Enjoy every moment as that's what life is made of. No forever destination. Life is like a piano and what you will get depends on how you play it.

All in all, a happy spring festival at bmp and imp's. Happy year of horse my friends!

This year, my calendar birthday happened to be the same day of the Chinese new year. So happy birthday to myself as well. 

We are the champions, my friends!
