What I miss most about the States

I've been feeling reminiscent so I thought I'd make a list of what I miss most about the States, people excluded and in no particular order.  

1. driving!
2. TexMex
3. people saying "bless you" after sneezing
4. speaking English
5. personal bubble space
6. living in a house (vs. apartment)
7. actual enclosed showers
8. ovens
9. air conditioner/heater
10. people saying "excuse me" when they bump into you
11. cheese! on everything!
12. sandwiches
13. Target, e.g. one stop shopping

Conversely, this is what I'll miss about Taiwan.

1. MRT
2. cheap food
3. night markets
4. all of the convenience stores
5. speaking Chinese
6. buses
7. walking everywhere
8. the close mountains and ocean

Well this is all that comes to mind right now.  If you'd like to add to the list, let me know!

Haha… House vs. rent is one of the simple debates today. But it's weird why people love arguing which among them is the best. Well, choosing which to rent or buy (whether a house or an apartment) is dependent on your current needs or lifestyle. That's why you must analyze your preferential decisions very well.
