My friend from home and I drove around my new state today and were making comparisons the entire time.
Us trying to figure out how to describe the stark, yet completely immeasurable differences between the two states was almost as complicated as first comprehending that imaginary numbers, are not, in fact imaginary.
No joke, we would talk about the trees for ten minutes, then come to the conclusion that “Yeah, I mean they’re just different.” Or the roads, “They’re just… different.” The layout of the city… “It’s just weird.”
Culture shock – in America? Or two people who don’t like change dealing with it very poorly?
