Hey dude are you ready for your civil service exam. I've been told it determines your education, social stats, things like that. Im pretty sure ill pass because my dad is a scholar gentry so he has connections and not to mention power
I mean i don't even know you but okay, good luck anyways.
welp that went horrible. So much representation for the middle kingdom.
Son, i believe in you. Maybe one day you'll be able to do something extraordinary like invent a compass, or discover the amazing uses and resourcefulness of things like fast ripening rice or gunpowder. Maybe improve the economy along the way.
Things like that go on to develop even in other regions like our neighbor Japan. Although they are afraid of us, they still share similar traditions and beliefs.
Theres another thing I havent thought about; Money! How am I supposed to pay for anything? Maybe my grandmother can use the flying cash to send me the money she still owes me from when we were seeing who could guess the number of Japanese reps coming in to study our culture. Hmm
Maybe ill just become someone like An Lushan! Rebellious! No. I should invent! Of Course!! A functional boat that can travel at incredible speeds! ill call them Junks!
Go right ahead kid, me and your mom are just gonna live the simple life and participate in neo-Confucianism. and also foot binding because its your mother's FAVORITE activity.
