Keep noticing your hair changing colors from vid-to-vid... do more updos and down, ponytails, and all other culturally appreciating styles :D
Also, as a person of multiple cultures, how has your experience in the Far East compare with the Mad West? Might be an interesting perspective to hear about comparing views coming from Asia vs European vs North American. Do great things...

One Might argue that hair styles originated from function and tailored to suit a population based on a general genetic disposition. That said, that in turn became synonymous with culture and ultimately became a fashion that created distinctions between cultures... I find it interesting to root hair styles to there origin 😇

As Someone of Chinese descent, but never lived beyond the borders of the United States, I'm curious as to how Asia politics is taking the global stormy waters or even if they care at all beyond the scope of US and North Korea. My cousin is a newscaster for CCTV in DC but some of their media might definitely paint communist China in a very positive hue. Being forced to choose sides would be asinine, but one can't help but feel slightly biased against the narrative.

Ja, one would argue that styles were dependent on individuals with specific genetic disposition, but fashioned into a cultural norm. Dreadlocks were created for an original function for people with a certain hair texture, but has since become a fashion statement for a particular culture... But I digress.

Ha, are updos/down/ponytails representative of a specific culture? I wasn't aware XD
I've lived in both the East and West and have values from both, but as I've grown I've realized that my personal life and social views are much more aligned with eastern values, while my political views are more western. Socially I'm very conservative and somewhat of a traditionalists, which isn't very common in the west anymore, but in terms of government, I'm a strong advocate for personal liberty, which is basically unheard of in China and is being chipped away at in HK.

I definitely identify with both cultures and both cultures have a lot to offer, but lately I can't help but feel like the West seems to be in decline, both culturally and economically, while Asia is growing. It's frustrating to hear people blame China for the West's enormous debt, for example, instead of the unwise spending decisions of American politicians. In any case though, I hope Trump's Presidency can continue to build bridges with the Chinese government. Ain't nobody got time for WWIII, and I'd hate to have to choose sides.
