@UberScout, moving to another country is really difficult nowadays. Maybe an Asian community in the US? Jan 15, 2020 at 10:32 AM

        Sacramento has a rather large Japanese community, and it's cheaper than LA. There are even a couple bookstores that specialize in anime graphic novels from Japan, and the big Goodwill "superstore"/dumping ground on Florin Road always seems to have a lot of anime. Lots of big Asian grocery stores.

        Problem is, Little Saigon and New Chinatown are located in areas built right after WW2, so no apartment buildings. A number of houses are rented by the room, or you can rent a former garage or a former "ground level" family room ("split level" homes were popular for a while).

        @Wolf Prince, you mean me? Personally, I have pretty much no family left except for my mom. Today we will cook a beef roast and cheap stuffing and eat that. I'm talking about society in general, all the people packing the stores to buy stuff for their celebrations.

        Can't shop anywhere in peace, can't buy stuff online cause it might get lost in shipping what with all the deliveries. Today there will be a mighty shriek across America as dinner tables fill with "debate" over God Emperor Donald I. So glad I won't have to endure it.

      I turn 45 today. My life is over half over, and I feel like a failure. Mom says I'm a survivor, but to me that's not enough.

        I should be successful, but because of ASD and mental illness I'm not. Just a useless eater on SSI.

        Try to find the successes in your life that already exist. Not society's trumpeted ones. Few people have those.

        Teddy was a voracious reader by all accounts, and regularly quoted from books he'd read. The word "muckraker" was taken from Pilgrim's Progress, for example. That's why I put "attributed".
