In the blink of an eye, I am in my mid-30s! Where the F*CK did the time go? I’m starting to find grays in my jet black hair on top of my head and dread the day they start showing up down below. I have fine lines underneath my eyes and my face is starting to get a little saggy. I’m strongly considering getting one of those cosmetic thread facelifts if my man dumps my ass. But that’s for another blog post.
Today, I’m here to talk about my biological clock. Now that I am in a great relationship (yes, I am “IN LOVE!”) and in my mid-30s, I suddenly feel the urge to reproduce before I hit the big FOUR-O. In my early 30s, I wasn’t even thinking about having a baby. I just wanted to find a good boyfriend and see how it goes. But now, in my mid-30s, all I think about is my biological clock ticking away and wondering, “When is my damn boyfriend going to propose so I can get his sperm up in me and make me a mini me!” Being in the mid-30s is a very crucial time for us women.

I asked my mom last month, why she married my dad? She told me it’s because my dad is tall, charming, and handsome. But the biggest reason was he was able to bring her to America. She told me marrying a Chinese American man was every girl’s dream in China. It was their ticket out of poverty and an opportunity to bring all of her family members to the US for a better life. Let’s face it, if you are a farmer in China, your next generation will probably be a farmer. They don’t have as many opportunities as we do in America such as public schools, food stamps, and free health care for the poor. No matter how much the French talk shit about the US or how much the Iraqis want to bomb us, if given the opportunity to live in the United States, I think most of them would jump at the opportunity. The United States has become a superpower because throughout history we worked hard to build a foundation. The United States also made investments in other countries such as China and India which helped create their skilled labor force. Look at China now, they have become one of the most powerful countries to contend with. Yes, we bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan; we bombed Iraq; we enslaved black people; we enslaved Chinese people to build the railroads, which I feel America never put any effort to recognize. If you look at history, every country did horrible things to each other. Look at Germany, does Hitler ring a bell? Anyhow, I can’t stand how some people bash America when other countries did far worse to each other. If you ask me, no country is innocent. Every country fights for money and power, it’s just that the United States has maintained its place as the most powerful nation. That’s why so many Mexicans and people from all over the world would do whatever it takes to come to the US.
When I was in college, a couple of my girl friends were offered $20K to be engaged to men in China so that they could come to America. Read more
