Different kinds of fandom with the family

Watching Akatsuki no Yona OADs with my teenage sisters: I am standing and cackling--relentlessly--as my sisters are crying on the floor.

Watching the Digimon Adventure Tri movies with my 13-year-old brother: My brother and I are hugging each other, cheek to cheek, trying to contain tears as we silently watch.

In other news, I leave tomorrow morning and I doubt my 10-year-old sister will take it well. Nor my mom. 8-year-old brother will probably take it better but still been sad and clingy before going to school. Other siblings are like, "hey, cool, nice to see you, bye~" but I guess I'm fortunate I get even that much. We've got drama here and there, but for the most part, but family gets along really, really well and I appreciate that deeply.

Leaving feels heavy. It's this heaviness that makes me most likely to live back in the US someday for the sake of being closer, but whenever I try to think of long-term career options with connections to Asia in Colorado... well........ hrm. I tell myself I could always have Asia-hobbies, but.... hrm...... well.......

Speaking of hobbies and getting in touch with Asian culture, I can no longer take my Wing Chun lessons as the same place. T__T My teacher informed me of a couple different locations I could go to, but the one I was going to was *so convenient* and even then I would barely make it in time for lessons after getting off work. I'll figure something out, but I'm very disappointed and probably won't be able to go as often. It was such a highlight of my life in Shanghai too. T__T
