(This applies to a majority of asian kids in the US) The reason Asian kids in are very depressed, here are the charateristics of them:
1. THEY ARE OBSESSIVE ABOUT YOUR GRADES. They want you to go to a good college like a UC or Harvard and stuff and get tons of scholarships and be rich lawyer or doctor. Here are grade when it comes to asian parents:
A - Asian standard, the only acceptable grade.
B - Bad
C - Catastrophe
D - Death
F - F***'d
Tip- DO NOT tell them you have a bad grade when they are in the kitchen! Most of my fellow asians in my town keep shoes near the kitchen area, if you tell an asian parent you bad grade in the kitchen you could get shoes thrown at you, you could get maimed by utensils and if they are near the knifes you are just plain screwed.
2.THEY ARE CONTROLLING.
Who you are, what you wear, what you do- it's all up to them
3. THEY THINK ANYTHING YOU DO ASIDE FORM STUDYING IS A WASTE OF TIME.
4. THEY ARE ABUSIVE.
It's simple, you don't meet up to their standards they have no problem in getting rid of you.
5. Rice. And fish.
6. If you have many possessions they will take them away. If you don't they will just take away your dignity.
Asian kid: I got a freakin B on the test! I'm dead!
Friend who got an A and doesn't have Asian Parents: Listen! You can switch tests with me! It's a scantron! They will never know!
Asian kid: We can't, they will find out somehow! I'm screwed either way!
