Movie Night

Last night, my ethics class crowded into our teacher’s living room to watch The Joy Luck Club, a movie about, according to Wikipedia, “the relationships between Chinese-American women and their Chinese mothers.” The movie was long and emotionally draining–there’s a lot in it–but it was fun. In class tomorrow, we’re going to talk about how we identify with the characters.

Every now and then, I have these moments when I think, “This is why I came to boarding school.” Last night, munching on grapes and crackers in my teacher’s home, I had just that thought.
