And of course, I get the ‘gloomies’ or that is what I usually call it. This past year was a doozy. I also got dumped for the 89327843930342th time. And the gloomies came back with a vengeance. Like a giant tidal wave of extreme sadness. It felt like someone was squeezing my heart all day and night. No thanks to work either. Despite being a quiet shy person, I am pretty good at picking up people’s emotions. Everyone around me had their own anxieties and worries about the future. But things eventually come to a head. And my gloomies have been getting better.
So in order to roll with the punches and do something cool, I decided to buy a plane ticket and go to Japan. Maybe it’s not the most responsible thing to do at the moment, considering that I am soon to be jobless. But traveling can be so therapeutic. And when else am I going to have so much free time and a cool friend to visit in another country?
Did I say therapeutic? I forgot I have to get on 2 planes to get there. I regretted hitting the submit button the second I did it. Haha. I’m kidding, but not really. The last time I was on a plane, I thought I was going to die. We had a missed landing and I literally prayed to land safely. And now I”m going to get on a 20 hour airplane ride. I truly am crazy. Oh well, that is part of the adventure I guess.
When I get back, hopefully I will feel like I can start fresh. Maybe with a new philosophy on life? Probably not. But I will eventually have to get a new job and meet new people.
I also have been, taking some classes. And my Masters application is just sitting there at FIU waiting for a final approval in Aug/Sept. I already know that by the time that rolls around, I may change my mind completely again. But that is the whole point of life. It’s a big roller coaster of ups and downs. Decisions and indecision. I wish everyone well. Hopefully the next time I update, I will have pictures all the way from the other side of the globe. See ya…or how they say in Japanese…Ja ne! 😉
