I haven’t eaten anything amazing recently except for that one burger I posted on IG. I also had another pretty damn good burger two days after but it was too ugly to post on IG.
Life here has kind of come to a standstill. The excitement that swelled within me during the first few weeks has almost disappeared completely…to the point where life here is almost mundane. I’ve gotten to the phase where I don’t want to meet anyone anymore…half of it’s because it’s too late in the game too make friendships now and half of it’s because I just don’t care anymore
Part of this apathy is probably due to me traveling alone and experiencing what it’s like not to have to care for anyone…god..it was honestly so liberating not having to look over my shoulder to see if everyone was ok and/or not having to slow down for anyone. I could stick to my pace at all times, with no one limiting me.
That’s not to say that I detest company, but it just seems too difficult to find someone who can keep up with my pace and do the same things I want. That person is ideal, and I urge everyone to find that type of person to accompany them when they decide to travel…anywhere.
The routine nowadays is school, workout, and browse the internet. Most of my entertainment comes from Singaporean drama in the news with all the racism towards PRC’s and Ang Moh’s and what not. The whole deal with LKY and Amos Lee was good stuff to laugh at as well. Singapore is just another country with normal human beings. Despite how the media portrays them as a powerful and rich country, there’s definitely plenty of problems that run throughout this society. The most prominent one in my opinion is everyone’s role of being internet warriors. They can talk all that good shit about something, but when a problem arises, they decide to take pictures/film the incident rather than DOING anything about it, quite unlike what it is in America, where if you can do something, usually people confront the problem.
I still appreciate this place for what it is though, but I swear I will never get used to this heat/humidity. Absolutely the worst. There have been multiple days the past two weeks where I felt a thin film of liquid accumulating on my skin just because it was so damn humid (temps are around 91 F but humidity boosts it up to feeling like 107-110 F).
In other good news, I’ve managed to maintain a healthy active lifestyle and have gotten more fit rather than fat during my stay here, haha.
I plan on going to Bali next week to learn how to surf for a few days..and finals begin once I come back. Bali will be my last destination, but honestly it’s just a place for me to relax one last time before finals Don’t expect a lot of pictures, and I don’t think Bali is renowned for Indonesian food so…yeah. Hopefully I can cop a pic of me surfing though so we’ll see.
After finals I’ll be heading to Taipei for a few days to start my adventures with my sister. Osaka/Kyoto/Nara/Yokohama/Tokyo will be the plan right after…and after that, the travels will end.
It’s honestly sort of crazy that I only have about 3 weeks left here. Time really did go by so damn quickly that I thought this day would never come. At the same time I feel as though I’ve done a lot since I’ve arrived and I know for sure that I’ve learned so much about…everything. Because I’ve done so much however, I know I won’t have any regrets leaving this place.
Anyways, there will be a post about stuff I learned (academically and socially) later on in the beginning of May, so yeah, that’s all for now.
