Well, if anyone doesn’t follow me on Twitter by this point. I guess it’s not really clear that in a month’s time I will be moving back. I’ll tell people if they ask, but to be honest I am so fucking excited to be moving back home. It has been something I have been thinking about for a while and it wasn’t exactly on my timeline for next month, but things happened and now this is a thing.
I would like to note, for all those who give a fuck, or don’t, what ever. Skim through or just stop reading that is fine. I didn’t really want to move. It hasn’t been an easy year, but it hasn’t exactly been terrible. I have had one of the greatest opportunities in the world to move away go to school, live close to the ocean, and somewhat explore somewhere foreign to me. I have not only met and become friends with some of the best people I have ever met, but experienced hardship, pure joy, and another load of emotions in one go; if that even makes sense.
In my previous text post, I wrote a short list of this years firsts. It’s all been such an adventure, and I am so excited for September, or even when I go to visit Calgary for vacation in about a week for everything. I’ve got so much planned in travel and just experience in general.
I think one of the biggest reasons why I’ve fully decided to take a REAL gap year to do things, is because I’d like to have freedom. The freedom to not feel tied down, or overly focused on one secular goal (school).
I’ve grown to appreciate and love work; despite fucking annoying customers. I’ve loved Club Monaco and I’ve loved Starbucks. But I’ve promised myself that this gap year I’m going to stop making excuses for things that I want to do.
So I am moving back home.
First on the chopping block is going to see Arcade Fire in concert with one of my best friend Maddie.
Next up is possibly moving/road tripping through BC and back to Calgary with my brother Zak- who I haven’t seen since January.
Then celebrating my 20th at X-Fest with all of my favourite people in a city I’ve really come to miss. JACK WHITE AND ARCTIC MONKEYS <3
And lastly and HOPEFULLY going back to the Homeland (Malaysia) and hopefully a bit all over Southeast Asia to visit my dad who I haven’t seen for almost 2 or 3 years now.
I’ve already planned so many adventures and with some love and luck I’ll be sharing all of this via Youtube to all who give a fuck or two about my life.
If not, this is just for me.
1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.
2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.
3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.
4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.
5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life.
