Cosplay, what a fascinating thing. A cultural phenomenon, of the younglings. Sprung up i guess in 2000s in Japan. Then spread to USA. In Asia, it has a cult of its own. “2D”, anime. In USA, closest analogous is gamers.

Scene About Quiting
你不想学扬琴了 你说了不算 为什么 因为是它指引你来到世上的 陪伴了你11年 这是你跟它前世今生的缘分 现在你不想要它了 但是它对你也有感情 你跟它商量一下吧 如果它同意你不用跟妈讲 妈没意见
you can say you want to quit learning yangqin, but it's not up to you why it guided you to this world you've been together for 11 years you are destined to be together you may not want it but you are all its got talk to your yangqin if it agrees, then that's it i won't object
A good mom (and dad), makes a world of difference. It creates good or bad people.
