I've been back in the US for almost four years. Can't say I am happy about it. Good stuff has happened (started grad school, found a good church), but in general, quite disappointing. Or not, actually, since I didn't expect all that much in the first place. But I still had hoped it would be better, with a little international perspective, and it's not. At all.
People in grad school (other students, advisor) have been asking me lately, "What are you going to do with your degree?" I tried to think of all the options and not just immediately say, "Go back to China." So I've been thinking about it a lot, turning things over. And the answer which keeps coming to me really is "Go back to China."
So...go back to China?
I sure want to. Yes indeed.
