    My mother is in a village in Bangladesh and there is no way of communicating with her currently.

    You don't have to call it a bucket list! Is there anything that you'd really like to do eventually? It doesn't even have to be something exceptional.



    Wow, nice. From that list, I've only travelled alone. How terrible But I'd like to host a foreign exchange student (how was that btw?) and celebrate Holi in India. Also I'm guessing the foreign exchange student helped in you learning Chinese? The language looks and sounds so complex...
    Haha, thanks. Really? where did you go?

    I hosted a foreign exchange student as part of my school's Chinese program (like, I was learning Chinese, and they thought it would be convenient if the Chinese-language students hosted a student from China). But really, it didn't help me so much as it helped her learn English (since my mom is Chinese, I basically got a Chinese-learning experience 24/7 lol). And yeah, it is pretty complex, but I'd say that there are more patterns in Chinese than there are in English (so once you've gotten the patterns down, you're basically set... and the grammar isn't too difficult, either, because there is very little conjugation, if any)

    I went to Australia from UK and it took more than 20 hours to get there if I recall correctly!

    Ah, I see. Your mom's Chinese, that must help so so much lol. I had a student from Honk Kong living next to me during my boarding school days. We made a deal that we'd teach each other Chinese (Cantonese) and English and it ended up with only me teaching him english and him teaching me rude Chinese words :laugh:

    The only thing on my list is to fully control my panic attacks and OCD. I've came a very long way with panic attacks and I'm proud of that but still have a long way to go with managing OCD
