Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year! This is on our way to Houston, in an RV for 10 hours through the icy roads.

She's younger than me, so in Korean culture I would be her "unnie" (older sister), therefore kind of responsible for her (if I want to be a good role model). She kept burrowing in to my armpit, and all I could think was, "I'm glad I switched to a better deodorant."

After a while, I got used to it. Physical contact with other human beings is actually very good for your health, what with the hormones the contact releases, as well as mental benefits. But it's always made me a bit uncomfortable. I'm trying to get over it since I've starved myself of it for so long, it's starting to actually take a toll on my health. But..habit, and if I suddenly became a touchy-feely person, people would be in a for a shock. It's, like..part of my reputation.


Anyhow, yeah. That was a long trip. Part of my New Year's resolution is to be more open to physical contact without freaking myself and other people out.

In Sweden, there is no sort of physical contact outside of wild drunkard parties and the occasional bump into a stranger. And if you do bump into a stranger, you have to kneel and beg for forgiveness and the other person MIGHT forgive you for your heinous and obviously perverted violation of said persons shoulder.
So I kind of envy you.

Im asian and I do not like people touching me. At all. But I can see why you say Asians are pretty touchy feely. I swear, I'm the only one who I know who feels this way, all my friends always hug each other haha

Happy new year to you, too.

@epicness: Yeah..touchy-feely. Like random pats and arm-slinging and sudden hand-holding, things that give me brief heart attacks.

@Mint612: Whoo!

@Frida(guest): Sweden sounds fun. But finding chiropractic clinics would prove to be difficult, it seems.

@SilentDusk: Do not laugh at my misfortune.

@Justea(guest): I'm trying to get better at hugging. I used to kind of tuck my arms in and move into their hugs and wait for them to let me go.

@random passerby(guest): Merry 2013!

I'm from argentina, and we are very "open" to physicall contact. We kiss in one or both cheeks depending of the zone, and i remember this asian young couple that come to visit their family, the first time we meet i greet the guy with a kiss in every cheek and a pat on his back. The girl next to him gave me a death stare and the guy face turn red as a tomato, but after that my brother greet him, and my grandfather greet him, so i guess she understood the situation
