Do You Find Yourself Just Sitting in Taiwan?

Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

There's a situation where heels are the wrong thing?

That's like saying happiness, sunshine and bunny rabbits are evil.

That for me makes life more intersting. A lot of the local people I've met in Taiwan don't talk much about a variety of topics even if they speak kickin' english. That makes a huge difference for me.

Yeah - I feel I'm becoming an idiot. I used to be smart and witty. Now I'm just a dumb ass. There is really no one to talk to about anything interesting, and when I do find somebody interesting, I'm so out of practice I can't keep up with the conversation so i just dribble while trying to recall some useful English words I used to be able to say.

That's not true....give me Alpine Meadows here in the 'wan and you'll see me doing both regular and goofy down the slope.

My only issue is the jump as I can't even do a 180 (too old).
Life is a bitch and death is her sister.

I got a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell.

Reminds me of the time when I thought I could still do a flip off a diving board. This was at the Caesars Park pool in Kending. Well.... a week of not being able to turn my head cured me of wanting to attempt that again.
