JAYNE V.O. (CONT'D)
Big time journalist in a big time city. New York. Yeah, that one. Most people go to struggle for the hell of it in some crazy hopes that they'll break into an unforgiving, underpaying industry at some point before they hit decomposition.

I always told myself that when I left China was when I would start getting real opportunities. I didn't realize back then that when you made your own world everything was at your fingertips.

It's weird how back then all of us were so far from home but somehow home came to us. And we made something of it. We made that world out of mispronounced Chinese words and food out of street carts at midnight. Out of bargaining for fake Michael Kors bags that cost less than my vegan salad from By Chloe. Out of knowing we were our own island and fighting to stay afloat in somewhere weird and new.

But then I thought fuck that shit, man. Six months into eating beans for every meal and a job at the New York Times falls into my lap. Gotta love family connections. Low level but with the promise of promotions to come. It's still creative, I told myself.

Jayne V.O. (CONT'D) (CON
I wanted to be an actress. But not just regional theatre in Milwaukee or something. I wanted to make it big, do those parts that turned the stage into a mirror and let me hold two thousand beating hearts in the palm of my hand.

I guess it could have happened to me. The struggle. For a second I felt the tortured artist inside of me want to find some self indulgent shit to roll around in. You know, something that would give me "life experience."

In a weird, twisted way, they love the struggle.
