他妈的母狗骗钱
Tā mā de mǔgǒu piàn qián- An old Chinese Proverb

As an Asian kid growing up in white society, it personally has been a struggle for me to keep to my culture and stay within social norms. Being called out for my race, and shunned for being different. Being known as the kid with the squinty eyes. But thinking back, I would never wish to be anything else. My freshman year, walking into high school. It was so weird. Seeing everyone with their own little group of friends, I felt like the odd man out. Not knowing how to feel about it, I turned to reading Chinese Proverbs whenever I had time. I felt comfort while reading them. They gave me the ability to realize how one should live life to the fullest. After reading them for a while, they really opened my eyes to the world, and gave me the ability to get a new perspective on things. When walking to class one day, I overheard two people say a phrase that I remembered from a proverb. It amazed me that others too, spent time to read chinese proverbs. Until this day, I have always kept this proverb in the back of my mind. That proverb’s translation to english?
