do what?

the negativity chokeses me

Nervous.  About to call grandma and possibly eat a big helping of humble pie.  Dignity is a human social construct that I do not need to survive.** That was fun.  Looks like I'll be doing this on my own.  I am armed now with a website she insists says lots of negative things about going over there and I intend to read it a pick it apart for myself.  Her story doesn't match up with the stories of people Who Have Done This And Been There And Loved It.  But what would they know?  They're not grandma.

**After reading the page from the US Embassy in Beijing, I have decided my grandmother is on crack.  Some of what she thinks, I can see where she got it from, follow the tracks back to the station.  And some of it was misunderstanding about my expectations.  But some of it, her strongest points no less, she pulled out of thin air, as far as I can tell.  I am angry and sad.  But I wanted to do this on my own and I will.  And she can go shit in her hat.

Blarg. Sorry to hear she's still so convinced of her own opinion she can't fathom you enjoying something she wouldn't, or trying something new anyways.
