What will he say today, I wonder. I turn on my computer, I wait impatiently as it boots up. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You’ve got mail.

"I wish people wouldn’t just see me as the Asian girl who beats everyone up, or the Asian girl with no emotion. People see Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock in a romantic comedy, but not me. You add race to it, and it became, ‘Well, she’s too Asian’, or, ‘She’s too American’. I kind of got pushed out of both categories. It’s a very strange place to be.

-You know when you love something so much you start to hate it?
-Is that what happened to you and your books?
-I stopped looking at my books when I stopped loving life.
-Why did you stop loving life?
-Well, you don’t love life itself. You love… places, animal, people, memories, food, literature, music. And sometimes you meet someone who requires all the love you have to give. And if you lose that someone, you think everything else is gonna stop too. But everything else just keeps on going. Giraudoux said, you can miss a single being, even though you are surrounded by countless others. Those people are like extras. They cloud your vision. They are a meaningless crowd. They are an unwelcome distraction. So you seek oblivion in solitude. But solitude only makes you wither.
-So, I’m an unwelcome distraction. I’m a cloud?
-You are the only part of my life I haven’t figured out yet.
The art in this movie makes me melt.
