Hi how’s your big job in the city going? Is your salary getting pretty high? Did it start high? How high did it start? How high do you think it will go? Have you become friends with the bosses and higher-up’s yet? The movers shakers and king-makers that might baptize your life into a pool of wealth and success. When do you think you’ll be able to afford to buy a big apartment on Fuxing lu? Have you met a girl? Is she someone you might want to marry? What do her parents do? What does she do? How old is she? Do you have the same car or have you saved up enough money to buy a new one yet? Do you eat at expensive restaurants? Do you have lots of successful friends? Are you in a group of young successful professionals that wear the newest styles and influence smaller, shittier groups of people? Let me know man, I’m your younger brother and I’m looking up to you so I know what to do. [Ryan Nimmo]
