I am currently living in Vietnam. Due to the pandemic, I have temporarily moved back to study online and pursue a co-op internship. Being home is great, there is nothing beatable to urban Vietnamese food, weather, and convenience like I am living in. Despite the rainbows and unicorns the first stage of moving back is, I experience reverse culture shock when people in Vietnam gave me some sense of self-questioning, something that I had abandoned since I moved to the United States 8 years ago. They feel confused that I am a woman in tech. They feel weird that I prefer moving back home to Vietnam after finishing my studies in the States. They feel weird that I often praise the meaning of work and efficiency rather than glorifying busyness.
