Ways That Hawaii Ruined My Mainland Experiences

Now that pidgin is an official language (we never need your approval brah), I'm releasing this list into the wild....
  1. Blue Pacific Ocean, Haleakala, Hana > Gray Pacific Ocean, Yosemite, Redwoods
    All of my experiences in mainland scenery/nature will never compare to the beauty of Hawaii. I've enjoyed these places, but I'm never satisfied.
  2. Pidgin aka language barrier
    I have never and will never speak proper english. I stumble over words and take long pauses to think of alternative words. Brah, it's junk when no one gets um. No can liddat.
  3. I know more Hawaiian History than U.S. History
    Ya ask me anything about the overthrow of the monarchy or the hawaiian kingdom. But don't ask me who the whatever number president was. I don't know. Maybe this is due to my own failure, because I'm sure we were taught it. Maybe I felt distant from the mainland and had no interest.
  4. Fresh fruit, fresh fish, fresh air
    HOPE YA LIKE TART AND FROZEN EVERYTHING, MAINLAND.
  5. ETHNIC DIVERSITY
    And the lack of japanese, chinese, korean, vietnamese, and hawaiian food is hard to endure. I like my white people food, but a girl needs her lau lau yanno
  6. What is 2-day shipping? NEXT DAY SHIPPING? 2-HOUR SHIPPING?!??!
    WAIT THINGS HERE DON'T COME FROM THE BARGE?!
  7. I'm an overall alien or weirdo
    I don't share the normal/common experiences as other mainland people, but I wouldn't change it for a second. Hawaii is a INCREDIBLE place to grow up in and I miss it every day.
